I'd rather suck in a little pride then make some dumb mistakes.

Last night I won a direct from HK refurbed HK 630. This is my very first "real" HT. I am graduating from years of HTIB.

Keeping that in mind, inevitably, I am going to need to buy some new speakers. Now, I am used to having the HTIB's having everything precut and ready to go.

It's my understanding that I will need to buy my own speaker cable, cut the wire myself, and get it ready to be connected. I have never done any of this before whatsoever.

So, I'd appreciate it, if someone has the time, to be given very anal and specific instructions, and pictures would be a nice bonus.

I have to budget myself, so, I am going to be stuck with the Sony HT500 HTIB's speakers for another month or two. I know those aren't worth much, but will they function at all, or will the HK unit just completely devastate them, even if I don't "blast" it?

Thanks for your patience. :)

A friend of mine suggested I would need this grocery list:

1.)a roll of 8 or 12 gauge wire.
2.) Banana crimps
3.) wire stripper
4.) DVE or AVIA calibration discs
5.) Sound meter
