    My Custom built Home System

    Reciever: Harmon/Kardon AVR-300. $20 at a yard sale.

    CD Changer/Player: Sony CDP-CX205 200 disc. $26 at a thrift shop.

    Pre-Amps: 2 identical Regent HT-391 5.1 Home Theater systems converted to be used as pre-amps. traid for an older 5.1 system.

    Subs: 2 10" Pioneer 400 watt IMPP $50 for the pair at Goodwill. Built the box to specs myself from scraps.
    2 10" Dual 350 watt, $40 for the pair off Craigslist.

    Center Channle: 2 custom built Center boxes, each consists of 2 3.25" mids with a 5.25" sub. All 4 3.25" seakers are a matching set and both 5.25" subs are a matching pair. Free

    Rear: A pair of Craig 4-way Boxes that I rebuilt. Each box consists of a 4" sub, 2.5" tweeter, 1.5" tweeter and 1" tweeter. Free/came with the pre-amps

    Front: A pair of 4-way Pioneer 6x9s. 200 watts. And a Pair of Dual 4-way 6x9s, 300 watts. I inherited the Pioneers and the Duals were $7 at a pawn shop.

    Needless to say, there is better equiptment, but I'm proud of what I have built on such a tight budget. It is VERY LOUD. It sounds pretty good and balenced. I have it so loud on a daily basis that when in the shower, I cant here the water hit the floor. And when I get back in my room, you dont smell voice coil. not bad for a little bit of money and alot of tuning and wireing. Mind you, I have been building up this home systwem for many years, starting when I was about 8 or 9. I have this system wired perfectly. If you turn the balence knob to the left, only the left 2 subs, the left 2 6x9s and the left rear and center channle play. I have also taken great care to get the ohm mesurments correct for what the speakers are runing off of.

    On a side note, I dont recomend doing this if you want your 27" CRT TV to last.

    Well, it's a lot of speakers. It's definitely got that going for itself.

    I forgot to mention, there is usually one of the red Dual subs where the 12" JL sub is. I just took it out of my car and was playing with it.

    That's very interesting. I'll give you props for the price! lol. Maybe you should start condensing, though.

    Re: My Custom built Home System

    Are you sugesting that because of the number of speakers, it dosent sound good? I go for SQ first, volume later.

    Yes, that is exactly what we are suggesting.

    The factory system in my dad's Land Rover is loud too. But just because it's loud, doesn't mean that they were doing it right...13 speakers in a car = fail

    Do your own thing man. If everyone keeps following the rules then we won't discover/invent anything.
