    OK, so I have been lurking on this site for over a year, and I guess it is about time I post something. I have never done any construction or electrical work before so when I took on this project I didn't know what to expect. In the end it was a lot of fun, and I learned a lot along the way...

    Home Audio Speakers
    If you had a 140 watt per channel 7.1 AV receiver, could you use four 150 watt centers (2 5 1/2's-1 2 1/2) in place of four surrounds? I'm in the process of completing a rather large dedicated HT and am getting close to the equipment stage and I will have a lot of questions that I will need...

    Home Audio Subwoofers
    There's got to be some folks who have this sub by now and I need to hear some reviews on this thing. If it's as good as the other HSU subs, I'm betting this thing has got to be nominated for the bargain of the century at just $389!
