    The Official "What Speakers or Subwoofer Should I Buy" Assistance Thread

    No real target budget, but the cheaper it is, the easier it is to convince the wife. Maybe around 1k-1.5k for all speakers? Yes I'm in NC. We were thinking of putting the L/R speakers on the book shelf on the sides of the fireplace and the center one above the fireplace on the mantel and below...

    The Official "What Speakers or Subwoofer Should I Buy" Assistance Thread

    I see, thanks. I was expecting to get a bundle, but I will look into buying the pair/center/subwoofer separately. Does it matter if they are from different brands and would there be certain compatibility issues with receivers?

    The Official "What Speakers or Subwoofer Should I Buy" Assistance Thread

    You were helping me (post #342 on previous page) and recommended a 3.1.2 speaker system. The only speakers(?)(thought sound bars are considered speakers) I could find are sound bars. Do you recommend speakers that are 3.1.2 or 3.1 that would great with a receiver? Appreciate it

    Hmm, I was hoping to be able to switch between a TV and projector for multiple video games / PC / NAS / maybe other audio sources for this one audio output. Do you have other recommendations to handle this?

    The Official "What Speakers or Subwoofer Should I Buy" Assistance Thread

    Hi all, I've decided to go with a 3.1.2 soundbar system: https://www.bestbuy.com/site/lg-3-1-2-channel-440w-soundbar-system-with-wireless-subwoofer-and-dolby-atmos-with-google-assistant-black/6402206.p?skuId=6402206. Can anyone recommend a compatible and reliable receiver?

    The Official "What Speakers or Subwoofer Should I Buy" Assistance Thread

    Yes, that is plausible. There is a mantle above the fireplace that the TV currently is mounted above. We can run the cable along the wall of that. I think sticking with 3.1 or 3.1.2 (first time hearing of this) sounds like a good plan. Are there any suggestions for specific speakers/receivers...

    Oh, wired power is fine. Just can't wire from the front to the back of the room from the receiver. An all in one system sounds fine for us. I'm curious as to why wireless wouldn't work that well. Should I just stick with a 3.1 soundbar or something then?

    Help setting up projector / entertainment / sound system

    Looking further into the wireless options, the response time doesn't seem like it'd be too reliable. Particularly for gaming (which we plan on doing quite a bit). So, that is probably out. The speakers will be placed on the shelves and there's a shelf above the fireplace for the center speaker...

    Help setting up projector / entertainment / sound system

    Thanks for the reply! I think that buying a new projector isn't out of the question, but we'd rather keep the room clear of any more tables/furniture in the center area at least. We were probably going to mount the Optoma to the ceiling somewhere. We were considering hiding the cables running...

    New home theater setup help

    Wow thanks for the quick reply and great response! That was exactly what I wanted to know. I'm looking at maybe a $200-500 budget just off the top of my head. Another question I forgot to ask in the first place was if it was possible to buy a surround sound system and not a reciever? Are...

    New home theater setup help

    Hello, Long story short, we recently dug up a TX-8211 reciever hooked up to 2 Bose 201 series IV, and we are far from experts on this stuff but know some basics. We will be getting a PS3 to play games on and watch movies via our LCD projector. Now, the video seems simple, hook up PS3 to...
