Hello everyone, i am going to be moving soon and i want to get my first surround system, mainly for watching movies as i already have a set of dynaudio audience 52se's for stereo. Anyways, i set the budget at $3000. The room that the speakers will inhabit is a fairly large room, i'm unsure as to the exact dimensions but the entertainment area of the room is at least 25'x20', its basically the family room with the kitchen directly off of it. I would attach a picture but i am not allowed to post links. Here is what i have picked out so far, my biggest concern is that the sub may be a little lacking for the size of the room ..because when an explosion goes off in a movie i'de like the room to really rumble. I have also read that there is a fairly large performance difference between the Axiom M50ti and M60ti, so i am unsure if it would be smarter to spend the extra money on a possible upgrade to the M60ti's or to a more powerful sub. fronts: Axiom M50ti ($700) rears: Axiom Qs8 ($500) + Axiom FMS-QS speaker stands ($270) Center: Axiom VP150 ($385) sub: SVS PB12-ISD ($599) ($655.43 shipped) Reciever: Pioneer VSX-1015TX ($360) ($404.26 shipped) That totals to $2821.94 shipped to the front door. (axiom took $93 off the order for purchasing more than 5 items from them). That leaves $178.06 for wiring or slightly better components? Thank you everyone for your help.
