My Little Home Theater

This is what I have so far, I am trying to find a location to build a house so I can build my own real theater but this will do for now. I think with everything so far I am at about $13,000 give or take. I think its all worth it.

Not the best pictures, I seem to have a tough time with getting them to turn out.

awesome setup.

I hear nothing but good thigns about the onix rockets.

The emotiva components are supposed to be very good as well. How do you like them? I ended up with a pioneer elite receiver coupled with an earthquake amp.

Looks like a great set up, those rockets have a beautiful finish. Never heard of the pre/pro or amp, but they look to be good. Just a thought, but have you ever concidered angling the center up a little to compensate for the low placement?

Real ballers have a dedicated room with everything in the walls.

actually in walls sound worse then its regular version. also really ballers have acoustically treated rooms, something that acutally makes a bigger difference then and mucho $$ gear does
