My pops called me yesterday and asked me about building a home theatre. Actually, what he really said is that he bought an iPhone and a 75” x850g at Best Buy, and might go back to get a center channel for $350 that the guy was trying to up sell him on. \n\nI told him I’d consult you fine people here on the forums first, as you set me up well my Klipsch horn loaded system and HSU sub. \n\nHe has an enormous living space, with just a fraction dedicated for viewing movies. For reference, the tv is mounted on a wall roughly 15” from the seating area. The seating area itself is 16’ wide In a straight line and centered with the tv. The rest of the room is something like 25’x40’. He will only build a 3.1. \n\nHe wants a new system but is very frugal. I was considering HSU horn loaded center, but I’m not seeing any towers from them. I’m not sure how their bookshelves would perform if someone can chime in on that because they are a great price point. Remember he is not, and has never been, a person that cares much about sound. He is an old cowboy and doesn’t know a thing about electronics. He just needs a decent system and at a good price and I don’t want to see him blow money at Best Buy. \n\nI was also considering setting him up with the PB12 from SVS first, and then he can build the rest of the system later as he sees fit. He has a horrific little subwoofer right now, so maybe replace this first? Not sure where to start! \nThanks for any opinions on this.
