I am just curious as to what everyone has for an audio system in their house, weather for computer or music or movies.
My setup starts out with my computer using a USB Creative Soundblaster 5.1 24bit. From there i can go 6ch direct for games or coax/optical (i use both for movies) to my Harman Kardon AVR 220 45w x 2 stereo or 35w x 5 all RMS.
From there i have a Paradigm Monitor series center channel. Front speakers are a combination of 6 1/2" PSB Alpha bookshelfs with JL Audio XR series Aluminum Dome tweeters run by JL XR Series Crossover. Rears are Hitachi bookshelfs (nothing special), as they are for effects.
Now for the fun stuff, the subwoofer is a hybrid/Hack of Klipsch power supply from a pro media 5.1 series bash subwoofer that runs a JL audio E Series 1200 mono block class A/B amplifier. Power on the amp running at 12v is 120w @8 ohms or 200w @4 ohms. the amp runs the original dual 8" Klipsch subwoofers in original slot port box. you may be asking why i did such a wierd combo and the answer is that the original Klipsch amp fried but the power supply still worked, and puts out 11.5 volts, so for giggles i tried it, under severe loads the Bash voltage regulation of the PS keeps the volts at the no load voltage of 11.5 still, i was amazed and decided to use it full time. never has it ever shut down or gone into overload. im a big fan of JL audio for cars so i just had to use this amp i had kicking around.
Basically i use what i have kicking around or what i can get used or cheap, and amazingly it all works really well, very happy with the sound for each use. I find it fun to create and experiment with stuff like this.
Id like to hear all comments and what you people use for your own enjoyment!!
