Ok, so I'm finally remodeling my basement and am to the point where I need to start auditioning speakers, so I will know where to run my wiring. First off, I'm looking to spend about $2000 on my first round of HT gear. I'll be picking up one of the SVS subs at a later date, so the sub can be left out for now. What I need is a pair of fronts, a center, and a pair of surround speakers, plus an A/V receiver that can take care of the usual suspects (DD,DTS,etc). To get a good idea of what the room will look like, please check out the following pics: Overview Looking at TV Right of TV Left of TV Away from TV Ok, so there's some obvious acoustical difficulties in this room, so I'll need some help on speaker placement for the sub and the surrounds. The fronts/center are labeled on the overview diagram. In case you couldn't tell from the pics, the television and fronts/center will be built into the wall. The speakers will be behind transparent fabric. Some other misc details. I will be using the setup primarily for movie watching (call it 99% movies / 1% music). I have a drop ceiling, so running wires is very easy. Not sure what else you'd need to know, but just ask and I'll let you know. Thanks for the help!
