I am in the process of building a new house and plan on installing a home theater system. I am a complete newbie when it comes to home theater. I do not want to spend an arm and a leg. I am already doing that on the rest of the house. I like most people initially look at the Bose systems (Life Style 12, Sam’s Club). The little bit of information that I have picked up was that some people say the Bose speakers are great but I may be better off using a different make amplifier and DVD/CD player. The room that it will be going into is 24 foot by 30 foot. It is a family room with other furniture and maybe a pool table at some point. It will not be strictly a home theater room. Can you give me some help on going about making a selection? Open to suggestions.
