I need help on a few recommendations for my new setup in my basement. Even being pointed to a Home Theatre for dummies complete morons would be great


Current Equipment

  • I have a set of 5 Infinity HTS 10-100W 8 OHM speakers and thinking of using 4 of them for my rear speakers for a typical 7.1 setup
  • Receiver is a Pioneer VSX-1325-K 7.1 Amp
  • PS3 for Bluray
  • Boxee for streaming content from a media server and Internet content
  • Toshiba Regza 55ZV6OU 240 Hz LCD panel
Room:

  • 18' wide x 32' long
  • 12' viewing distance
  • Drop ceiling with drywall and painted walls
  • Carpet floor
Tower speakers being considered:

  • Polk RT110
  • Paradigm MON7VCBLK
Center channel

  • Klipsch RC52
  • Paradigm CC190VCBLK

Questions:

  • What type/gauge of speaker wire should I use?
  • Recommendations for the center channel and front speakers welcome (I would like to keep all three speakers close to $1000)

Tom,


My experience tells me that the Paradigms are going to better match the sound that you will get from the Infinity rear speakers.  Although that is not the only reason I would go with Paradigms.  My front sound field is Paradigm and I really have not regretted the purchase - ever.  I think from an overall performance standpoint, the Paradigms will outperform the Polks. My opinion.


Good Luck.
