Thanks to everyone here on HTF for all your wealth of information and advice. I made a lot of decisions on the HT based on information that I got here on this forum. A buddy and me ran the wires before the sheetrock went up. I prewired for a 7.2 system, so I could easily add 2 more surround channels and a 2nd sub or bass shakers for under the couches. We also ran coax in the ceiling for the projector. It's been a fun and very rewarding project, although very time consuming (and expensive). One of my fears was the neighbors complaining about the volume up too high. We've talked to the neighbors and they can't hear a thing, and we have it turned up loud at all times of the day and night. They can't even hear the bass or the karaoke singing at 4 in the morning!! Equipment List: Projector: Sanyo Z1 Receiver: Sony Speakers: Sony Sub: Sony SAWM40 Here are some pics: http://home.comcast.net/~mshanjj/theater.htm The receiver and speakers are entry level stuff bought 4 years ago. They will be the next upgrade. But for now, I have the biggest upgrade I could have - the dedicated HT room!!!
