Im looking to buy a home audio system..I went and looked at some receivers, speakers, and subs earlier, and I roughly picked a few things out, but im not fimiliar with any home audio so im not even sure this stuff is compatible since its a 7.1 reciever, but i only have 4 speakers, a center, and a sub..also the rms on the speakers is lower then the rms on the receiver so I am risking blowing them..I am looking for a complete system, its going to be my pc's audio, and also my tv,dvd/cd player..Its hard to say a price, because I am not paying retail, so the last system i priced was retail about $1,500 but came out to be more like 800..so could anyone help me piece together a system, but it has to be from bestbuy.. thanks

heres what I had put together:

Reciever:

Speakers:

Sub:

Ditch the 7.1 channel receiver...unless you have a huge room, it won't be worth the extra expense. As for the speakers, you could do better if you went DIY, but it depends on your level of experience or willingness to learn.

As for using the XXX, it would make a great driver, but you'll need a pro audio rack amplifier like a QSC RMX850 or Behringer Europower to properly drive it. Expect to spend around $400 for something that'll power it.

alright could you recommend another reciever? my room isnt that big..and for the speakers by DIY you mean piecing each speaker? and as for my experience, i dont have any knowledge with home audio..and as for using the xxx, if i got one of those amps would it get louder/ or be better then compared to using that klipsch i posted? thanks
