    are you ever going to get a smart tv? the ht has arc audio capability and the nr414 does not look like it has it. but it will be nice to have 6 hdmi input(NR414) vs 3 hdmi

    Not sure on the smart tv anytime soon I have a decent tv but unless it breaks or goes out I doubt I will get another one anytime soon...and I have a TC2k and 500watts on my sub stage not sure I would need 2 sub outs

    also the 6hdmi vs 3hdmi is it worth $50 for 3 more??

    Since you already have a sub for the set up, go with a higher end 2-way that you build yourself. I'm working on tunes in the house, my build log is here. My speakers are sooo sweet, no distortion and they crank. Only downside is hearing the quality of the music file and/or production value of the tunes.

    The forum at PE will help you design the box for that TC-2000. I'm actually using a 12" TC-1000 I had in the closet. My design for the sub is linked in the build log.

    I picked up a re-furb from Accessories4less, super happy with the reciever and it has a 1 year warrenty. You can always us a Y to add an additional sub later. Extra HDMI inputs are only worth it if you have the additional sources (or will add them later). Make sure the reciever has network stuff built in! I love having Pandora built into the reciever......plus I can access a computer or media server for music and pictures.

    Hope that helps..........

    Thanks man, I'm loving how they turned out!

    I went with a kit from Madisound, found here. One of the huge bonuses with a kit is the crossover. The designer tweeks it to get the best response. My kit came with pre-assembled XOs. PE has a lot of great kits to, what are you looking at for budget? PM if you want.

    1" tweeter and 7" mid. Overall size is 15" H, 9" W, and 11" D. I made mine a little taller to fit my application. Most people put them on stands. I'm told you want the tweets at ear level.
