    I need help on a few recommendations for my new setup in my basement. Even being pointed to a Home Theatre for dummies complete morons would be great

    Current Equipment

    • I have a set of 5 Infinity HTS 10-100W 8 OHM speakers and thinking of using 4 of them for my rear speakers for a typical 7.1 setup
    • Receiver is a Pioneer VSX-1325-K 7.1 Amp
    • PS3 for Bluray
    • Boxee for streaming content from a media server and Internet content
    • Toshiba Regza 55ZV6OU 240 Hz LCD panel


    • 18' wide x 32' long
    • 12' viewing distance
    • Drop ceiling with drywall and painted walls
    • Carpet floor

    Tower speakers being considered:

    • Polk RT110
    • Paradigm MON7VCBLK

    Center channel

    • Klipsch RC52
    • Paradigm CC190VCBLK


    • What type/gauge of speaker wire should I use?
    • Recommendations for the center channel and front speakers welcome (I would like to keep all three speakers close to $1000)

    My diagram of my setup


    Thanks for any help in advance

    My experience tells me that the Paradigms are going to better match the sound that you will get from the Infinity rear speakers. Although that is not the only reason I would go with Paradigms. My front sound field is Paradigm and I really have not regretted the purchase - ever. I think from an overall performance standpoint, the Paradigms will outperform the Polks. My opinion.

    Good Luck.
