Newbie desperate for home audio help


Standard Member
Hi all, I am pretty new to home theatre, I am already addicted!!! I have some questions. First my living room is around 7000 cubic feet because it is connected to kitchen. It will be used as 75% movies/tv; 25% music.i I am thinking about putting together a pair of CM 9s, Centre 2 center channel, axiom qs8s x4 surrounds, and dual HSU vtf3 mtk3 subs. Think about adding some rear in wall or ceiling speakers, maybe even CM1s in the mix. I havent bought anything, I wanted ideas before the huge investment.....Not sure on the receiver or amplifiers, dont have much knowledge there. Is there anything yall can recommend?? What about the setup???? Should I grab rear speakers, and if so which ones

What sources do you have? What is your budget for reciever? What is your budget for speakers? Have you demoed any of the equipment you mention? Why have you decided to get 2 subs? (often one very good sub is better than 2 OK ones). What are your room dimensions? Maybe a diagram showing layout would help explain what you are trying to do.
