$5000 budget for home theater

Hello everyone,

I'm new to the forum, but I've been lurking for a little while, trying to learn more.

I am moving into a house and want to put a media room for mostly movies and sports into a room in the basement.

The room is 88" tall, 11.5' wide, and 30.5' long. It doesn't have any windows. It's basically a long room with an entry about 16' back from the front wall.

I want a projector, a 110-120" screen, and 5.1. 3D is not a priority. Later, I would like to add a zone for music upstairs, but that will be in another budget. I don't have any components and don't mind buying used or refurbished equipment.

I appreciate any feedback and suggestions.

Thank you

have you considered DIY for the speakers and subs??? if you're decent with woodworking skills you can build some SEOS 12's and a heavy DIY sub and get more audio bang for your buck in that price range IMO
Thanks again everyone.

Here's what I'm looking at right now:

Epson 5020
Vutec 110"
Onkyo 809
Klipsch RF52, RC52, RB51
Klipsch sw110

If I do that I can stay fairly close to my original budget for the components. Is there a big difference between that Klipsch sub and the HSU one?

I'll post a thread on my pre-wire soon. Thank you for the suggestion?

So for what i have here any thoughts? Options? Suggestions?

Thanks again.
night and day difference. IMO 99.999999% of the "name brand" speaker subs are a lost cause. go to place like SVS, HSU etc if you want a good sub.
