5.1 ch speakers

Thanks everyone, I am looking for 5.1 ch speakers for about $500 to start with. This is all part of an upgrade that i am starting. I have an old Sony RX, I don't know the Model # but it is next, and really old sony speakers. i want to start with the speakers first, cause when I get home from the Desert I am treating myself to a 70" visio Led 240hz smart TV. i have a 20'x20' room with 12' ceilings. the speakers are mounted in the corners about 9' off the floor, and all pointing to where we sit. Any ideas???

Well if your looking to save some money, you can pick up some Pioneer bookshelf speakers for around $100 or so a pair and the center speaker should run about the same. They are very good speakers especially for there price, and were designed by one of the best speaker engineer's in the business, Andrew Jones.

You're looking for 5 speakers and a subwoofer capable of filling 4800 ft^3 for $500? Such a thing doesn't exist I'm afraid, not something new anyway. That's a large space, which means whatever you buy will need to be commensurate. You may be able to get the front 3 and no sub for that amount though.

If you take yourself too seriously, expect me to do the exact opposite

I didn't catch that, I read 5.1 but didn't register that the sub was needed also. Ya you right that's a rather large space to fill especially for a sub.

Re: 5.1 ch speakers

Firstly I would look at the local used market to see what is available, sometimes you can get lucky. if that is not an options I would recommend:

3 x Chase M1 for the front http://www.chasehometheater.com/inde...art&Itemid=149

1 x Dayton Sub http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=300-629

And use your current old sonys for surrounds until you acquire a few more $
