OK Jim, I have removed you from moderation so you can post directly now.

If you are interested in SQ you have to be careful using PA drivers. Some are really good but you pay handily for them. Personally I like PA drivers as they tend to exhibit good transients and are very rugged. Others are not as enamoured with them and they have their own set of reasons. If you are after HiFi type drivers I will have to ask that others step in here as I am a bit of a hack and I'm thinking others might be in a better position to get you headed the right way. Let's see what happens.

If you go HiFi, them maybe the idea of a powered woofer(s) and some smaller towers might be in order.

Jim,
I am wondering if you might want to start a new thread with a different title. This one might not attract the info you need. You can always do that and put a link to it back here in this thread.

That's a great point, Thanks Cal. However, before I start posting more dumb questions I'm sure I can find the answers to if i knew where to look, I've got some research to do. I hate being the new guy asking questions he should be able to find the answer to. Any good sites explaining home amplifiers, signal cables and different source units in depth would be helpful if you can think of any off the top of your head!

Also, besides parts-express and madisound (the only 2 I know of ) where do you buy equipment?

As far as sources for info goes, I'm not sure where to start. There are so many that you could choose from. If you know what piece you want to acquire first, start there by Googling. Look at reviews and other similar items. There's lot of forums dedicated to the end user rather than diy. diyAudio is a great place for the build side of things.
