Ok I'm planning for my home theatre next year when I get a house and currently on my computer i have a kipsch promedia setup hooked up to a x-fi sound card and the sound is truly unreal. What I'm looking for is a very crisp and clean sounding system, like my computer setup, except have unbelivable crankability in bass, but not like my car. I am probably going to drop about 750 on the whole setup and was looking at a 5.1 setup with possibly a very nice 10" or 12" sub in a ported enclosure off around 750-1000 watts rms. What am I looking at in terms of receivers and such? Could a media xtender from my computer work off the x-fi card or does it not work that way? I don't have too much experience in home theatre theatre systems, the most I did was hook up an mtx thunder 9500 to a 600 watt amp in my basement and literally shook everything in the house, which is what I want. Would a 12W6v2 be a solid way to go for home audio? I know a 12" Kicker L7 isn't really ideal, but they sound great in my car. Thanks for any suggestions.

$500 for all speakers/subs/receiver/possible sub amp?
Your best bet is to see what you can find at some garage/estate sales, flea markets, pawn shops, auctions etc.

$750 for a full 5.1 channel?

Save some more, or go with a two-channel setup for now...

Cool movie.

Mental note: When they say 'America', think
'Speakers' instead.

Watch after credits roll.
