    Hi,
    I have been reading up on all of the great ideas about car audio and I would like to hear some of the forums opinions on Home Audio systems. I know this isn't exactly the right place for this post, but I figured you guys knew so much about car audio maybe you all could help me out in picking a good reciever and speaker set up for my home. I have an idea of the reciever I want to purchase (Dennon 2802). I mostly need opinions on speakers. What's the best brand? What to look for?

    Thank you,
    Peter /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    dennon good. kill wallet but goooooood!!! lol. dennon is one of the best. good clean sound, lots of power (the one i want has suttin like 200Watts per channel, note, thats for each channel. issa real nice. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif for speakers, go to partsexpress.com or crutchfield.com I go to parts express and buy Peerless subs, mids, and Dayton Loudspeaker Planar Tweeters (nuthin compares, cept compression drivers or ribbon transducers, goood sound). Most aren't too terribly expensive and (assuming u have at least some carpentry skills) u can save lotsa money by building ur own boxes. have fun! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I'm a big fan of JBL home audio. [​IMG] For speakers I'd get the JBL Northridge with the PB 12 subwoofer. Thats what I've got, and it sounds really good !!! Everything is ballanced just right, And the JBL "LFE" system sets the crossover on the sub for you, I've yet to hear mine sound anything but perfect. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Are you looking to build a home theater or a nice 2-channel audio only system?

    Prevailing wisdom says you should use identical speakers for the front 3 channels (which limits speaker selection!) and I suppose if you want to take it ALL THE WAY, the surround speakers should all be identical too.

    I've got some nice equipment for 2-channel audio, but regrettably have not completed the "upgrades" needed to get the whole home theater thing going....... I guess I burned out on the hobby (and ran out of money) before finishing! /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    me too. i have Sony 500 watt dolby digital surround sound reciever, Sony 5 disc changer, Sony DVD player, 2 high end Sony VCR's, 27" Sony Wega, Sony surround sound speaker & sub package. but, i had to go with Yamaha 8" bookshelf speakers. i used to have a Philips LCD video projector to project DVD's, etc onto a 6 ft. wide screen. Sony isn't high end super high sound quality stuff, but i love it. it's really good for the price. and sounds great for what i use it for.
