Hey all  Cheesy  I know I should have done this a long time ago,sorry  Undecided
I use a legacy processor for my 5.1 surround sound it's awsome.
and four Gem sound 3955 power amps ,two are bridged centter and subs.
The other two are front and rear right and left.
Three EQ's one for each of the channels a numark power conditioner.
I went with oppo dvd player because I like the product, I know to some this is cheep junk.
I do not use any of this eqipment for a business just for the family funnnnnnn,and I am budget cheep hehe.

I built the speakers they have a 600w rms with a 800w max each of the subs are 800 watts each 15" pyle.
I have put all of them through there paces and all I can say is what the guy next door said (They rock).
The trapeze screen size is 12'x22' the foot print of the inflatble is 25'wx19'Hx8'D and is made of 18oz pvc tarpolean.
I did alot of reading before buying each product I think I have built and bought somewhere in the best mid range area.
We have had a poop load of funnn so far.
I am sure there will be ups and downs with all types of set ups, high end and even low end.
But if you are having fun then you are doing something right and that is what it is all about.

Hey  :Ken, I went through mcm.com elctronics the crosovers are three way 600 watt rms and 800 watt max I bought them on sale.
I want to say 50.00 each same on the speakers the cabnets were prefabs they were like 25.00 a set I would have to find the paper work,
I ordered like six sets at one time tol,build cost per set was like 200.00 about 100.00 each give or take a buck or two.
I was going for low distortion with good mids and clear top end I new the lowes were not going to be that low but they are not that bad.
With the low's I would let the subs do the work and with two 15" woofers and 500 watts each kick ass.sorry butt.


I did not take pics of the speaker build did not think anyone was interested,but we can reopen one if ya want, lol.
The speaker stands were from woodwinds I bought eight for 20.00 each free shipping they are well built they can hold up somthing like 200 pounds.


Im a bargain shopper lol If I find the brand I like I try to find the manufacture,most will sale to the public.
