I have about $1,700 that I can put towards getting a 7.1 surround sound speaker package for my home theater room (13'6" wide x 20' deep). The purpose of the theater room and what we enjoy breaks down to 50% movies, 25% TV-watching, 15% gaming and 10% listening to all kinds of music. Haven't picked up the amp yet, but it will have ~100 watts per channel RMS.
At the moment, this is the package I've come up with:
Polk Audio Tsi500 x 2 (front) => $700
Polk Audio CS20 (center) => $225
Polk Audio RC85i (left & right surround) - I have to use in-wall for my side surrounds because there's very little walkway room with my sectional couch to fit in 13' 6" => $170
Polk Audio PSW505 (sub) => $230
Polk Audio Tsi200 x 2 (rear) => $350
Total => $1,675
Any changes you'd make to my existing package?
I've listened to both Polk Audio and Klipsch speaker packages around my budget range at Best Buy and would be satisfied with either.
Are there other brands I should look at where I can hit my budget target? Klipsch is nice, but that seems to put me around $1,800+ for a reference 5.2-type setup. BIC? Others?
