Hi Everyone, I am new to the forum and I have one question that I usually get different responses on. I have just purchased a new home and I had SPEAKERCraft Speakers installed by a friend of mine. I have 18 speakers in total 16 are 200 watt peak in-wall speakers and 2 are outdoor speakers that have a 300 watt peak. I being "audio illiterate" installed a cheap SONY Receiver that come in one of those theater packages with all the cheap little speakers witch sound more like tweeters. This amp I'm guessing cannot even make my in walls "kick". I also have a 8 port selector to avoid overloading the amp. My question is, What amp or receiver would I need to buy to make my speakers give me the kick that a need and still can take all the 9 pairs of speakers I'm wanting to power up.(keep in mind that all these speakers are in separate areas scatter across the home) I have a budget of $1000.00 to pay for the receiver or amp.
