    Are you suggesting this to have 2-channel music available with the PRO-10s?

    I would think if you're wanting to mix SHO-10s and PRO-10s that you'd go with just a SHO center, or the front three with the rest PROs.

    But I guess there's unlimited possibilities.

      I have a total of four 6 1/2" woofers in my floorstanding mains with 93db rated efficiency that get as loud (cleanly) as I ever care to listen to & I'm a middle age fart with some hearing loss listening to rock & blues.

      You're talking many multiple 10" woofers here with 97db efficiency plus a big ole 18" TCA sub!!

      I'd say it should give you that "Guy in the chair with his tie blowing back" effect if you feed them any decent level of power.

      I use a 300wpc Power Amp & it would probably rock the house down on the multiple Pro/Sho speakers.

        HT setup

        I would try to keep all of the speakers the same, but less critical for HT surrounds.
        More critical for HT surround music.
        RE: amp vs. AVR
        If you are using highly sensitive PRO/SHO, then may not be an issue.
        That said, the Emotiva amps are on sale now.
        $529 + free S/H for Emotiva XPA-3 (300W/ch x3 into 8 ohm).

        20 A lines sound like a good idea.
        Look at some DIY or hired room treatment planning.
        Consider automation/remotes to bring it all together -- I still haven't done this and see you are considering the Harmony series.

          Lilgator-In some respects, yes that was along the lines of what I was thinking...

          But, I will 95% of the time be using this for HT.

          I'm trying to see if I can justify the increased cost for SHO-10s...maybe using them as a LCR, and the rest PRO-10s (Heights, Surrounds) wouldn't be too bad.

          I just don't know if I need an Emotiva amp. I'm pretty new to all of this. Wouldn't the Onkyo 1007 be all I need? I will be using all 9 channels of the receiver (Zone 2 in bathroom/above Bar in back via 2 monoprice ceiling speakers).

          So maybe it wouldn't be too bad of an idea?

          Regarding the rack....looking to do this now...

          Thoughts on this? http://www.parts-express.com/pe/psho...6&ctab=13#Tabs

          Fits my spot perfectly....

          Then I go with these and spend all of my paycheck, right? :)

            If music is a consideration at all, and to save some pennies I would suggest PRO-10s all around with the SHO-10 as your center.

            Both movies and multichannel music would take advantage of the more forward center channel where vocals appear in either.

            Heck, I would just get PRO-10s all around and see what you think, maybe you fall in love with them all around.

              SHO as the center

              Craig had mentioned himself as well as a few others were throwing a SHO in as a center and having good results. As well as turning up their levels a bit on the receiver end to balance it out.

              Sounds like an impressive setup idea.

                Speakers:
                1) PRO-10's all arround (? height speakers - too big?), or
                2) SHO-10 LCR and PRO-10 surrounds

                Amp:
                Just try the AVR. It will likely be enough, and if not you can always upgrade later.
                There is plenty to spend your money on now without worrying about that.

                Rack:
                Looks good.
                I have a MA-37 I think.
                What are you doing for ventilation. Read up on open vs. closed ventillation options at Middle Atlantic.
                I was kind of stupid in my approach.
                I also went with some local custom installers that knew less than I did.

                A B&M and ID place that I've used is Full Compass near Madison, WI.
                Joel Dennis was my contact (if he is still around).

                Looks like a fun project!
