    ^^^^Like the title says, "Lets see those home theater systems?" :D

    I want to know the TV you decided to go with, receiver, speakers, sub, etc.

    Sorry guys...:( Next time I will be more specific.:eek: Mods can shut this thread down since I don't need the pictures anymore... thanks

    EDIT:Heck I think it would be kind of cool to see people home theater systems and see what kind of equipment they are running.

    It's a 7.2. The ".2" allows independent sub output.

    Why would you need 2 sub outputs? What kind of speakers do you have?

    When I moved to the south I found most homes were built on a slab and I didn't have as much bass as I was used to. I think because the floor is different.

    I have 2 Paradigm subs and the center, front & rears are full size/range Polk Audio.

    I think the extra 2 channels in a 7.1 are front left high, and front right high, if I remember right. I have a 7.1 Onkyo, but only have it set up for 5.1 (at some point, I'd think the difference is hard to tell between 5 and 7 speakers). Another benefit is that some speakers allow you to double the amperage from your 7.1 receiver to the front speakers, improving their sound.

    6.1 used to be the "new" thing, but it died out pretty quickly. It was a center real channel added to the surrounds. I had one, but it was impossible to tell that the center rear was really adding anything. I can see why it died out.

    Very nice equipment, but you're just begging that Onkyo to overheat and fry itself with it set up like that...I'd get those other components off the top ASAP.

    ^^^^^

    How do you find the sound with the centre channel so high ?

    Mine's about the same and I am considering putting it below the tv

    Well I think it sounds like crap. My dad's system and he uninstalled 4 of the 7 speakers anyways a month or two ago... :eek:


    So yeah, he can't tell the sound quality difference but I would like it closer to ear level when sitting down.

    I have my center below my TV too...think it sounds more "natural" that way. I'll post a pic tonight after work of my setup.

    Thanks....

    You are exactly correct, 7.2 means 2 rear, 2 front high, 2 front low, 1 center (total of 7) & 2 subs....hence 7.2. Now of course you can buy some crazy 21.2 or some shit...

    As far as the heat & unit failure. I've used different set ups for years and haven't had a problem though I've wondered when I might. That being said, considering the low cost of now higher quality sound equipment I'd take the failure and just get updated stuff...it's a good excuse to get new stuff.

    Ya , that's what I'm thinking

    My Klipsch centre has an adjustable leg on the back to point it down toward the listening position , but I think it would be better underneath , for me it means a rebuild of my cabinet
