Hey everyone, Im looking to build a decent 5.1 sound system for my 14' x 14' dorm room The general consensus is that HTiB is not the way to go so Im trying to avoid that. My current budget is about $1,000 not including the cabling. For a sub I've heard lots of rave reviews about SVS, and quite frankly Im a big sub guy So Im hoping I get one those but from what I've been able to find they all seem to blow my budget Are there any other decent 'cheap'ish subs? Since I only have a budget of about 1,000 I was thinking of a breakdown something like this: Sub - $300-400 Reciever - $300-400 Speakers - $200-400 As for recievers I've heard a lot of good things about Denon, but also about Onkyo. For my budget, is there a general consensus as to which company makes the better reciever? Finally, for speakers Im a little lost. I would like to go into Best Buy and ask to listen to some speakers but would like to go in with a little knowledge as to which brands I should be looking at for my price range. Although I very much doubt BB would try to swindle me, I want to at least look somewhat knowledgable Thanks for any suggestions or advice!
