Hey guys, I appreciate any and all help. First off, I'm most likely not buying anything any time soon, but would love to know what my options are, who knows I'm a impulsive buyer sometimes. As of right now I live in military barracks (lol) and won't be moving out until I get married next year. I don't really know much about the home theater systems, I've only had a cheap sony one that I've had for probably 10 years now. I've had a pair of Infinity SM 152's (they were made in the 90s I believe) which I'm sure most people haven't even heard of, but I've always loved them. They have 15" subs (though they don't allow for much excursion). I listen to music as much as often as I watch movies, mostly heavy metal (I love double bass drums and electric guitar) and rap. Also, I like to occasionally listen to music at ear piercing levels. Ok enough rambling.. I'd prefer to spend between $1000 and $1500 for everything; speakers, sub, and receiver. I plan to buy a projector later as well.
