its just insane for what it is. 1kw/rms amp, with a passive radiator, sounds amazing, hits like a sledge hammer in my little apartment. I couldn't be happier with it. My neighbors on the other hand probably not so happy :)

here's my bedroom set up with a temp soundbar until I get a surround sound setup in there.

Equipment:
Optoma HD65 projector
Cheap soundbar
PS3 for bluray
120" Screen

I cannot utilize the entire width of the screen because of the size of the room. not enough distance.

on to the pics...

god yes.

Nice looking setup! I had something similar in my dorm minus the nice TV and loved it! Now that my roommates and I have a house AND a nice TV, they didn't want the full 5.1 because it "cramps the room." I was about to cry!

Well SPL and db drag can get expensive, so can SQ , but HT is a fortune dude.. my buddy has a very VERY nice setup, Running a 7.1 Paradigm studio setup with a Hsu ULS 15 sub.. Not sure on his projector and screen /wires etc, but he has over $20k invested in it.. THAT might sound like alot until you realize there are $1000 HDMI's out there , $1000+ speaker wire, $4000+ center channels etc

His Reference speakers

Sub

But yea OP, Very nice setup, I have the same TV , is yours the 7000, or the 7100?

u can get a very nice sounding HT setup for around 1500-2000 bucks
HT is a little diff then HA

Hell yeah HT is expensive. But you have to look for deals and everything. Personally Onkyo is oneof my favorite A/V brands, and for about 500 you can get a reciever loaded with crap. Plan on upgrade my front speakers to floor speakers also. However with a solid 1500 you'll get some decent equipment

Dude for the $ , you cant go wrong with polk or energy for your 5 channels for $800 or so, and thee are awesome subs out there under $500 that will give you a hell of a nice setup, Added to a nice receiver that has HD decoding ( DTS MA and True HD ) which you can get nice ones for under $500

does HT generally run more expensive than CA?:laugh: It doesn't even compare. However: getting decent home audio sound is cheaper than getting decent car audio sound. It's just that decent in car audio is that: decent. In home audio, it's also known as insufficient :)

Be persistent on Craigslist and you can find very solid entry level equipment for dirt cheap. For only $150, I found:

(2) Athena AS-F2 Towers
(2) Athena AS-F1 Towers
(1) Paradigm CC-350 Center Channel
Entry level yamaha reciever
about $150 worth of high quality monster cable and accessories.

I spent another $100 making a huge, low-tuned 12" sub and feed it 100 watts off an old stereo receiver. That took me a solid year of browsing craigslist for a few minutes every day, and I had to drive an hour to get it, but it was the best $250 I've ever spent. The speakers reproduce the soundtrack effortlessly and can get painfully loud without sounding muddy at all, and everyone always leaves saying that it's the best home theater setup they've ever heard. For those without a critical ear, it sounds perfect ;)
