I am new to this website and was looking for suggestions on a theatre. I was looking at a bose lifestyle 35 series II. But reading some things on this website maybe bose isn't the best. I will mostly be using it for xobx, but also a lot of movies and music, which are mostly all the uses. I am willing to pay up to 3000, but any less would be better. It is going in my room so the speakers can't be gigantic but i do have a decent amount of room. The only thing that could be a problem is the subwoofer. Right now I have a Panasonic SA-HT920, I bought it when I was 14 but now I am 15 and have a job and have saved up good amount of money. I was looking at an Onkyo because people have said they are pretty good. But on the subwoofer, I have to put it right between my tv and my bed. They are pretty close. It would be in my room and I spend a lot of time in there. I also want it to be heard throughout the house (and maybe the neighborhood). But I want to be able to feel the bass too. So any system that is better than I have now and is pretty good, and I guess at a decent price. I was frowning on the price of Bose but now looking at systems that cost a third of what Bose is would really be better, then I could upgrade my laptop. My friend's dad has some Boston speakers that sound pretty good, but I would like some recommendations. And lastly, for the receiver, it would be going on a wire shelf so there would be plent of ventilation. Thanks.
