Well i want to have good quality setup, i got the z2300, but i'm sure that good studio speakers and a home theater sub with a good receiver would rape the z2300..

So, i dont know if i would be better to buy a receiver first, then add speaker, then add a subwoofer or take a "bundle" and a receiver.. I'm not sure if i want a 2.1,5.1,7.2,9.2.. because im all about music... but in a stereo receiver you cannot plug a subwoofer?

I want to know what would be the best quality possible like 500$ the speakers, subwoofer 500-1000$ (i want a kick azz one) and a good receiver 700-1300$, buying one pieces at the time..

i was thinking buying this kit, is it a good one?



or buying these



and adding this sub

well for a kick ass sub this is your best bet. If you wanted to have more than this is more.

For you high end mids.
2x 3ways
Amp + mixer OR a powered mixer
and one of the above subs

I use the same equipment one model up actually in my house. works way better than most home audio stuff more power especially the 18s. Just think about it. the only disadvantage i have ever found is the size.

I'm not sure what pricing you can get right now in Canada, but the Yamaha RX-Z7 is a really good receiver.

It's $1400 here in the States from Newegg (with the promo code).

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...maha%20rx-z7bl

You can also look at the Denon 4310:


$1300 on Amazon.

Both very good receivers.

If you want a kick ass sub within your price range, look no further.

Thats more than the powered 18 i posted you would get more thump out of the 18 especially in the subsonic.

There's like basically no specs on that sub other than telling you it's 18" with 700RMS.
