Hello, my name is Lucas Lasley. I don't know much about HT but i need something for my room. I know a lot about car audio but its probably 2 different ballgames. First off let me tell you what im looking for. I want to be able to use this "system" as 1. my computer speakers. 2. be able to use this while watching tv and or DVDs. and 3. a regular cd player. Im a DIY guy and would build the enclosures my self. I think what I'm looking for is a 5.1 system. but am not sure. im looking for 2 front speakers, 2 rear, center ch, and 1 sub. I have heard the center channel is most important. i have a 12 Dayton titanic MKII sub i will use. I was looking at the 250 watt plate amp from partsexpress also to power it. i need help with a receiver and front, rear, and center speakers. I would like to keep the cost under $400. the 400 is for crossovers, front and rear and center speakers, amps, receiver, wires and all. i have sub and wood already. THANKS guys!
