Hi everyone. I'm completely new to system building so I could use some advice.
I have a 2 story home which has several "pre-wired" rooms. I called the contractor to get info... and all they wanted to do was refer me to a sub-contractor... who wanted basically a ton of money to install a system. Since I am not a money tree, I am going it on my own... and I have all the time in the world to learn how to do it right.
Ok. I have one of those "great rooms" (kitchen area that spills into a family room area) that is pre-wired for 5.1 in the family/media niche area. I am thinking of going (5) TC80i's with sub. All basically connected to a Harman Kardon 3600.
Any glaring problems doing all TC80is? I suppose I'd use the sound system for music, and an occasional movie... but I'd hardly call myself an audiophile...
So any "range" of sound concerns? Power handling concerns? Perhaps pre-wired is a big scam which I should avoid in lieu of traditional speakers? Maybe I should go with less expensive stuff?
I'd really appreciate any comments before I go off and start buying stuff... or "tips" on questions I should be asking (but don't realize it yet).
