    Well, the images didn't work. Location of the speakers is going to depend on your room, your seating area, and what you are trying to achieve. In general terms the speaker should be above ear level and slightly behind the listener, but that's just the 50K foot level of advice.
    Main System:
    PreAmp: Rotel 1098 with MF X-10v3
    Amp: Rotel 1090, 1075, 1070
    Source: Pro-Ject RM9 with Blackbird Cart., Denon 2900 with MF X-DACv3
    Speakers: Gallo Ref 3s (LR), Gallo Due (C, SR, SL), Gallo Micro (RR, RL)


    Second System:
    Receiver: H/K AVR 630
    Source: Pioneer 563
    Speakers: Polk RTi10s (LR), CSi5 (C), RTR 200 (SR, SL)

    This link should help you with speaker placement. Click here At least its a good place to start.

    In general the tweeters should be at your listening position ear level. I would go for seperates if you have the money to do that, but there are plenty of good receivers to choose from.

    As far as cables everyone is going to have a different opinion. Go to a good shop and demo some. Check the flea market here too there are a lot of cables that come up for sale here. My preferance is Kimber, but it can get expensive. Do you know how much you want to spend on cables? Which cables do you want to replace (interconnects, speaker, etc...)?

    thanks for the link. i will try to post my pics if i figure out how to do it, if anyone knows let me know.

    what do you guys think about the yamaha Model: HTR-5890?

    this is what i want my set up to be:
    receiver?
    Rti12's for front which will come later, lol
    Csi5 for center
    my sub isnt the best but it does the job
    Fxi5's for rear

    As long as you don't use the 503 reciever :) . I usually don't even recommend that for the monitor series let alone RTI(nothing against you just my opinion). A buddy of mine has RTI 70s with an Onkyo 701 and sounds good... but some other guys on the forum will prolly tell you to stay away from onkyo. I personally think onkyo is great for the monitor and rti series but others may say otherwise. The onkyo 703 or 803 should do a great job.
