What reciever and sub will be best...

by JonM81 - 9/21/07 9:07 PM

Well I have search several forums and still undecided. Here is what I have and what I am looking for...

The Room:
3000cu. ft. 25x15 TV room w/ hard wood floor w/ a cased open to the front. We sit long way veiwing in the room. I know we need a throw rug and heavier drapes on our winder for acoustics...

Current Equipment:
36" JVC Tube w/ Cable from the wall... (no box)
Yamaha 5 disc DVD and 5 speakers from remaining HTIB DVD-C700.

The sub stopped working (if it ever worked) but it was only a 6.5" driver. We need a reciever that will accomidate the 5 speakers and a 12" powered sub in the tv room, then I want to install a single speaker outside under the patio. We are into action/comedy DVDs, sports, a few shows and music. We are not looking for HIGH end material.

Here's what I like:
Yamaha RX-V661 Reciever. I may grow into it... lol
I am really undecided on the sub... I read good and bad about Velodyne, Klipsch, and Polk... Hear good about eD and Hsu stuff, but hard to go listen too. All I know is I want good bass, don't know if it needs to be ported on sealed...

Any help appreciated!!!!
