I am in the process of purchasing and setting up my Home Theatre and need some help relative to speakers. To complement my new 50" Plasma, I am purchasing a Denon 3803 receiver, Niles SI275 (to power speakers in the rest of the house), a CD & DVD Player, etc.
I am figuring on spending $2000 - $2500 on speakers. The fronts need to be book shelf speakers, the rears (I think they are 15yo Bose) are built in to the ceiling currently, I need a sub woofer and center channel speaker. The room is about 25' long by 18' wide with plasma mounted on one end (over a low fireplace). The main couch is about 15' from the screen with the remainder of the room left open. I am considering the Polk LSiC (center channel speaker), and either the LSiFx's or LSi9's for the front bookshelf speakers. These would be sitting on top of (34" high) built in cabinets on either side of the plasma. Any suggestions relative to the above and on a subwoofer (Polk or other brand)? Anyone ever used Polk's LC80i ceiling speakers? Thanks for any helpful input.
