    Default Bedroom HT

    Started putting together a small HT setup in the bedroom...It will probably be a 3.0 system, utilizing a leftover LSi7's as the mains driven by my old standby Yamaha RX-V795.... Trying to find a center channel that would be compatible and work with that EQ... There is a local LSiC here in NJ that I might consider, but are the LSi's going to be a problem for that old yammy to drive.... (really not going to overdrive in the Bedroom.).

    Is there another compatible model center that would work ? I was going to buy a soundbar but have these leftovers that I decided to plug in...

    Any thoughts?

    Why not use those Monitor 5's instead and skip the center? You could also consider selling the 7's and getting a 'better' integrated amp if you have RCA connections on your sources.

    Honestly, for a bedroom I would just stick with stereo.

    Those LSi 7's should sound quite good. Maybe add a sub (or two) but for me, I had a 3.1 setup in my bedroom at one time using a set of Monitor 40's, CS1 & PSW125, and TBH it was too much.

    If I "really" want to do a movie "right" I want the bigger TV in my main room anyway, so I'd just stick with stereo.

    Otherwise as skip suggests, sell the LSi 7's and maybe look at some RTi A1's x 2 (L/R/SL/SR) and a CSi A4....

    Yeah the LSi 7's do sound good... and I could throw an MP1K sub up there... the 5's are a little too big for the space...

    Thats what I'd start with. If you still want more, then go with a 3.1 setup of RTi's or the 5 channel setup I suggested as its easier for your AVR to drive.

    Is a soundbar good enough for the bedroom? can I add a wired sub to any of the base models?

    Just do a 2.1 if you've got a free sub. There is no point to get a center in a bedroom, especially when you're talking about an LSiC that could strain that receiver.

    I would think you can, not sure how the wiring would work.

    On my Surroundbar 1000 it takes a optical input from my TV. Not sure if thats the standard......

    For my wife and I the Surroundbar 1000 is perfect for bedroom watching. She was not interested in the 2000 which was like 20 bucks more from Polk eBay that came with a wireless sub lol...

    I agree. Re-use the LSi7's and just find a cheap sub or re-use one you have already and I think you will be more than happy.
