    no sub for now... i think the dual 6 1/2's down to 38Hz will hold me over, at least for a while. I can always get one later if i need it.

    I think the BEST thing about this whole setup is the receiver's low-volume mode- basically, it will level out dialogue and explosions... so you can keep a steady volume thats not too soft to hear what they are saying, and then awake the whole house when shit blows up or crashes. and since i usualy watch movies later/wierd hours, its ideal so i don't wake up the rents.

    So, now I'm broke again. and rb25's get pushed back again. lol


    Next up, is a 30-35" widescreen LCD i think. maybe, i'll cheap out and go for a widescreen hdtv CRT style. but, it will def be widescreen :)

    my b-day is may 2nd (hint hint. 11,000 members, $1 each = B gets a pimp TV :) )

    i didn't get any cables, cuz im not exaclty sure what i need. When it comes in, i'll have jeef come onver or something :)

    denons top of the line is bad ass. but its also $4000 for a receiver. F that. I don't run a movie theatre. their low line is no better than a sony... that's the problem with big name stuff. their low-lines suck. Onkyo's are bad ass receivers.
    the inifinity speakers, i think will sound awesome. I have run 4 sets of infinity speakers in my various cars, and i really won't even look at another brand. i'm THAT happy with how they sound.



    i work for a living =)
    i get paid pretty good
    I live at home.
    and the kicker- I DON'T HAVE AN EXPENSIVE GIRLFRIEND TO PUT UP WITH :) and haven't for a long long time.

    lots of income - little expenses = turbo sols and pimp home audio



    bring a girl for me and one for you, and we can have "movie night"

    we can watch movies fr about 4 weeks straight :)

    I have a set of BOSE 901s so HA =)


    I use to have an older pair of Infinity speakers they looked just like yours but with an older look "stained wood" but when my brother moved out he took them with him

    we had no need for a sub now with the crappy speakers we have now we do need a sub
    ohwell I have a full setup in my room that has its own little powered sub for a 12 by 12 room it kicks ass!

    anything bigger and it would suck =(
