My hodge-podge HT is slowly coming together. I got my receiver hooked up and tuned, and will be adding more components as I go. Here's what I have so far: Pioneer VSX-815 Fronts: some speakers my dad made when he was in high school Surrounds: BIC America Venturi V2's Don't laugh at the fronts! They actually sound pretty good for speakers that old (solid response down to 40Hz). They are ported with 10" drivers and HLDs. My system is basically comprised of what I can afford and what was given to me. (I'm only a senior in high school :b ) I'm planning on building a Dayton sub, which I'll probably do in the next month or so. The next order of business is the center. My system is pretty random, so I'm not sure if I should really focus on matching the center's characteristics to what I have; as nothing is really consistent. I'm just looking for a good center speaker that will provide good sound for a decent price. ($200 or less) I'm what you would call a bargain-hunter/diamond-in-the-rough-seeker. I try to buy stuff that sounds great but doesn't break my bank.
