    Hello, I'm new here and looking for some help/ideas/inspiration. I have a buddy at work that has suggested some speakers for me I will list those L/R Polk Audio TSi200, Center Polk Audio TSi-CS10 or CS20, Rear Polk Audio FXi-A4. I still need a receiver and a sub. Will the sub I want to be able to feel the explosions in the games and movies but I don't want my whole has shacking lol My budget for this will be 1200-1500$ for everything I know it won't get me top of the line components but it won't be wall mart cheap either lol. The room this is going in is 12'x'12' with 9' ceilings and this room will be for mostly movies and gaming. I currently have in ceiling speakers that the previous home owner left to play music around the house and outside. If you guys could help me out and point me in the right direction I just don't want to spend that much money then regret it after the fact. Thanks in advance for any and all help!

    Among the best AVR deals at the moment are the Pioneer 1022 and 1122 or the Onkyo 515/616. For $300-ish and $400-ish there isn't much else out there to compete. All the new models show up next month and the replacements for those receivers are going to be $450-ish and $600-ish. As for "feel the bass" but "don't want shake"....well those are complete opposite goals.

    IF you want to "feel" bass but not shake the house, you could add transducers to the seats. Parts Express sell bass shaker pros. These give you the tactile feeling of deep bass rumbles, without having have the sound. But since it is low frequency your brain thinks the bass is heavier than it really is.

    To get a sub up to the point where you feel the bass, you are usually shaking not only the house but everything in it and your neighbors as well. I don't like the feeling of tactile transducers (bass shakers) so I have subs you can feel.

    Okay so I think the receiver I'm going to get is either the Onkyo 616 or Pioneer 1122k then the sub someone suggested I spend a little extra money and get a good sub he suggested the SVS sb1000 I think that still keeps me under budget but at the high end of it.

    You could always check your local Craigslist before you "just buy a new one"...for the subwoofer I mean...
