I'm in the planning stages for a new Home Theatre, using a basement room 18'x 14'x 7'8". Build out of the room will need to occur. I've browsed quite a bit though the forum, and have picked up very helpful information regarding acoustics and build suggestions. (Thanks to all!) I plan on incorporating the suggestions where financially feasible. I anticipate spending an additional $10,000.00 for needed equipment and build out. I presently have a Toshiba SD-6200 DVD, Harmon Kardon AVR26-II A/V receiver, a pair of Paradigm Studio/20 speakers, and a pair of Paradigm Atom speakers. I purchased this equipment a few years back, and now want to incorporate these items into a home theatre set up. I know I need a subwoofer, and I plan on purchasing a Mitsubishi WS-55711 or an Hitachi 57GWX20B HDTV. The home theatre will get heavy family use, i.e. early teens and a 7 year old will also use it, so I will have digital cable supplied. Question 1: Am I on the right track, considering that I am willing to spend money (wisely) for needed build out and equipment? Question 2: Is my present equipment terribly outdated, assuming I want good-to-great performance for multiple family users? Question 3: Do any of you have suggestions regarding the subwoofer and/or TV? Thanks for any input!
