Can I join? I have my PC connected with my home theatre with a fiber optic cable, 1000 Watt at max output



Do I need a picture of how I have it setup or is that fine?

You know... not to be nasty, but I think we all get that audio equipment is expensive. Why don't you actually answer with something that can help this guy out? He's got a very tight budget, so work with him.

I was thinking maybe something vintage/used for the amp and then throw the rest into the speakers. But I'm not a Home Theater guy, or even a very big speaker guy, so I don't think I'll be much help on specifics here. It's not going to be amazing, but for $200 lets see what we can cook up to hold this man over until he can get some real money together.

The reason no one answered before no one was willing to suggest a setup that could be built upon for that budget. I'm not even talking about a 'go big or go home' mentality here... the budget is just plain too small... even for used and/or budget gear. What do you want us to say? drjoey, with your friend's budget troll garage sales... but since you don't know what you're looking for good luck finding a good deal and not getting screwed...?

Tell your friend to double his budget then look for used speakers and receivers. At this price range it'll be easier to find online and if you're careful and patient you may not have to pay shipping. If he can't then he'll have to get something old that won't have the connectivity for future upgrades or some POS.

Not sure if these count but I have a pair of audioengine a2's. They are great little speakers. When I'm not using my ad700's that is...

Those systems only put out about 100watts or below. Specs are way off. Have you ever seen HT amp with 1000watts? It will be 100lbs, and a tank.

If you through 1000watts into those speakers it would pop so quickly.

Those setups are great for computers though over computer speakers.

Well if he just went up by $110, he could pick up a Gizmo v1.0M & 2 WAF-1's from TCA, shipped. (total of $310 shipped)

That'd probably be the lowest that he can go.

I've got the setup, and I'm rather impressed. I really like it.

And room wise, I've got a similar setup, my room is 9 x 14 with my TV on the long wall, and they produce more than enough sound for the gap.

Uhm...ok, the guy's not really an audiophile, I'm just trying to get him something half decent that is capable of producing midbass...that doesn't come from the 'sub' Basically, if he gets some cheap 5.1 htib he'll have mediocre sound, and speakers that he can't do anything with later.

I agree $200 isn't much at all, but again, it's not my money or my speakers. Remember, he's using the built in TV speakers right now.

Like I said, it doesn't have to be perfect... I really just need to find a decent cheap amp like the sonic impact T-amp with more power. Somehow I don't think 10 watts is enough .

I was considering offering to build the speakers, something like this even if I ate some of the cost to build them (you would understand if you knew the situation). The problem is, I don't know when he needs them done, and I'm busy with school at the moment, so time might be tight.

Thanks for the suggestion, but unfortunately his budget is pretty stiff. I'll talk to him though.
