    Hi everyone, Im new to this forum and I am wondering if you guys can help me out. I have a set of Cerwin Vegas (DX-5) that I don't want to get rid of and I am looking to match a great Receiver, Sub-woofer and Surround with these speakers. I will be using these for a 50/50 music/hometheater setup. Any recommendations would be great. Thanks Scott

    ok without knowing budget waf factor room size or anything else, I will assume you like it loud and listen to slash rock and metal. I would start with a big SVS sub to match the big CV speakers you have. Then get a yamaha A/V receiver to fit your budget. For surrounds, get some wall mounted ones that take at least 80 watts.

    I personally would not dump $2000 into a system anchored by CV mains. Sell em and start from scratch with $2400.

    Or do I like i do with my CV mains use them on an seperate system dedicated to music only, if you have the room. 2000 will buy a pretty spankin complete HT setup if you take a look at whats out there.

    "that I don't want to get rid of " sorry that some people cant read scott*k. dont listen to Brian , wayne or Mike. $2000 will get you a good start on a HT. so no video with the $2000? just sound?

    yeah, look at all the receiver companies. denon, Harmon kardon, panasonic, yamaha, sony. all should do your CV's real nice. surrounds can even be CV's if they have ones that would fit your decor. trust me, either build your sub or by an SVS.
