This is my first post and hope to have many more in the future =)
I have done a days worth of researching all over on this board and a week or so looking into everything else.
If you have time to spare and help Iâ€™m going to try to lay everything down.
This set up will be for watching movies and a little music 75/25. Space is a major concern since this is in a dorm room I will be starting from scratch and am on a budget. Hopefully a summer job will help. So far I have already bought two sets of r15â€™s for the front and rears from fryâ€™s. I am looking into receivers a sub and a center.
I am considering buying another set of r15â€™s to handle front and rear center, or buying r30â€™s and moving the existing r15â€™s to center rear and front, or would 2 r15's as front center be worth it for losing the rear speaker?
I need advice on a subwoofer for fewer than 150. I am looking at these 3 at the moment.
For the receiver:
Any advice and recommendations on this combination would be helpful.
Also, Since Iâ€™m on a budget, me and my roommate will also be building stands and brackets (rears hanging from a bunk bed) for the speakers. Also possibly a TV stand and an AV center. I know heat is a major concern for the AV Receiver. Iâ€™ve never done any woodworking. I think itâ€™s cut, prime, paint, assemble. Mobility is a concern so I think itâ€™s possible to make stands that can be disassembled with bolts? (Sorry for my lack of knowledge but thatâ€™s why Iâ€™m here.)
If it helps, hooking a DVD player, computer, laserdisc, Xbox/or game cube.
Oh and also hooking up Sennheiser RS-120 wireless headphones. I know there is a dolby processign for headphones but have not seen it labeled on many receivers. Not a major concern.
Thanks for taking the time to read (if you didnâ€™t just scroll down here)
