Those hifi bookshelf systems are a joke Sony makes some decently respectable Receiver/amps.

should i buy some speakers and make a box?
like 6.5" high
and maby 2 x 8" mids? idk depends what they got n for what price ect. pretty tight budget lol

but yeah what should i do? get speakers and make a custom box or just buy it already done ecT?

Buy prebuilt ones unless you have a bunch of free time to figure out what you're getting yourself into. TBH unless you're an electrical engineer you'll have to spend a decent amount of time designing the speakers (mostly figuring out what to do) and they probably won't come out sounding as nice as something designed by professionals.

What is your budget?

I'd suggest building something from here.

8 inch drivers would be fine for low frequency reproduction however a 6.5 inch for highs would be a bit larger than what's needed unless you want the 8 inch drivers to act as subs.
Shoot more around the 3- 4 inch range.
I'm told that building the crossover for 3 way systems is a pain in the ass and two way is usually a better idea.

2 way is usually much easier.
But 3 way and up usually will provide for much better sound quality becase each speaker will have its' own separate range to recreate, instead of reacreating out of it's intended area.

Hey everyone, i need some help!

I'm buying a new 5.1 system and I have no idea what I should be aiming for! I have about 800 euros to spend for the system + receiver, and the options I have avaible can be seen here:

http://www.4audio.rs/upload/File/4Au...bar%202010.pdf

http://www.audioplus.co.rs/wp-conten...28.05.2010.pdf

I've been recommended the following:

AVR - Yamaha Rx v 367

Speaker Systems:

-Canton Movie 80 CX
-JBL SCS 178
-Harman Kardon HKTS11 BQ

I'm leaning towards the HKs, however I dont know if I can get full potential with that receiver.

Source will be mainly 5.1 DTS Bluray rips in .mkv format from the HTPC via HDMI and PS3 Blurays...

I appreciate any and all input!

why would that matter if the woofer's intended range was 50-2000Hz and the tweeters intended range was 2000-22,000Hz?

Just because they CAN recreate those frequencies doesn't mean they do so well, mixing speakers together with others specifically designed for that frequency range Will clear up distortion and should greatly increase the amount of power the speaker can take by taking away said distortion from each individual speaker.

I was told you guys are the local audio experts.

For once I decided to invest in the quality of audio that my computer is putting out. So I bought Infinity TSS-800 speakers, and then learned that the amp in the subwoofer only powers the subwoofer, and I need a receiver to power my speakers.

Right now I am planning to buy Onkyo TX-SR508 7.1-Channel Receiver, and wondering if there is a difference in audio quality between using the motherboard's S/PDIF optical out or buying an audio card.

If you're using a digital signal.....a digital signal is a digital signal. It's all 1's and 0's. Onboard vs. audio card will be the same. The only difference is the features between them at that point.

Only time I ever recommend using an audio card is when you're using the analogue outputs, and speakers that need it (again, still using analogue outputs).

Thank you, that means since I will not be buying a sound card I actually have money to buy a receiver.

Any advice, or links to guides, on good receivers under $200, or what to look for when buying speaker wires and cables?
