    I am using this TV (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage....=1142295054692)
    with a PS3...so I don't need a DVD player or anything like that... but a cd player would be nice.

    movie's and music. well if mainly movies your enclosure needs to be large and tuned low. it will give a flatter response. get a hold of some tang band mids you may also like some of there subs. also for subs try a mach 5 maw. what size sub are you looking to use
