What exactly do you want help with? You need be more specific

But I will help with this. If you want BIG speakers, make the subs really really big. Not your rear and surround chanels. 90% of the time the surrounds are just sitting there not playing anything. In movies, the only time you'll ever hear them is when a helicopter flies by, or something like that. Most program comes from the center. With music (all of your cd's are in 2 channel stereo) I prefer listening in plain old stereo. Maybe you want all speakers pushing air? It would be kind of wasteful to have the best speakers in the world sitting there 90% of the time. Even if you are using them full time, it doesn't seem right to have an enormous speaker that only plays down to 80 Hz. If it is just for the visual effect, close off a large bottom section and fill them with sand! Be sure to put them where you want them first, cuz they aint goin nowhere once you fill em!

Default Now the Questions?

OK slice...

You want a 3-way. It needs to play loud (but you have lots of power -- have you actually bought amps?), be big, and they need to sound good.

How much money in the budget? If you haven't bought amps include that $$$ too.

Let me see if i can say this gently... no i can't. If the amps sound like c%$& there is NO bang for the buck. And power ratings are often next to meaningless -- i have heard 200W amps clip before 20 W ones (ie the 20W amp put out more power than the 200W).

So we have our 1st impediment -- trying to make a set of speakers sound good with C%$&&* amps.

I just can't imagine spending money on those amps when the money could be much more effectively distributed.

I don't think i want to play anymore.
