I realized today that I have an interesting speaker setup, and wondered if anyone else had heard of someone doing this. When I first decided to make a real home theater system I decided to get a good receiver (Panasonic SA-HE200) and use it to power some crappy 40W speakers I had from a bookshelf mini-component system. This idea quickly got nixed and I decided to also buy the JBL NSP1 system. Unfortunately, the upgrade bug hit relatively quickly. Within 2 weeks I had purchased a pair of N28s to replace the fronts. Now, I thought, why let those old N24s go to waste, so, since the Panny had rear-center pre-outs, I dug up an old receiver to power the 2 rear-center channels. The odd part of this whole thing is that I have yet to buy a subwoofer, and I don't plan on getting one for a year and a half. This decision was made mostly because I live in a college dorm room, and the guys next door were getting irate with the old 40W speaker system. I could only wonder what a gigantic subwoofer would do. So, instead of either buy a cheap sub with very little power, or running the sub so quiet that I couldn't hear it, I decided to wait to buy one. Was this a good idea? Am I losing that much effect by not having an LFE channel? Could I calibrate the sub so as not to piss of the guys next door. (Note. the walls are steel reinforced concrete if that helps to determine how much the sound will bleed through.) Am I just crazy for having 7 speakers and no sub? I'd like to hear back from you guys.
