dont go with either
you have a nice tv. those htib's have no digital audio inputs which means the only true surround sond you'll get is from dvd movies. you're stuck using prologic and rca cables to connect your other high def equipment together.
So you mean I would not be able to get souround and HD from my
Bell Xpress Vue (9200) satelite, with this system???
It just good for DVD's?
Thanks for the Info, but I don't think i could go wrong the system was free,
I have the sc-ht940 and so far it 's been good,, great sound but you are wright about not having much connections.
The speaker wires they put in that box is just too small, and I purched some 14 Gauge wire(not instaled yet) do you know if a person can go to big with the speaker wires with does type of speakers?
14 ga speaker wire in HT-940
That is what I used - sounds GREAT!!
I don't think i can go wrong,but I see what you mean about the connections,,, i'm getting the Panasonic SC-HT940 at no Cost! and it sounds very good even with the small speaker wires they provide with the system!
Do you know if i can go to big for speaker wire with does Speakers
I perchased some 14gauge wire or should I go with 16 gauge?
speaker cable not fussy other than really long runs
The 14 gauge is fine. Heck, 16 would be, too, as well as 18 for normal ciscumstances. Don't buy into any proposition about super premium needed for speakers. Although, just to demonstrate extremes do happen, my dealer told of a 10 thousand set of speakers some guy used tiny doorbell wire to connect & wondered why it didn't seem he was getting their full potential.
So, 14 gaudge is not too big of a wire for those small speakers? they seem very flimzy but they sound great!
I thougt that it would of made more of a difference on the more highend speakers like the one diskjockey used.
maybe i'll stick with that then.....
Larger wire is not going to do anything to the speakers,
just let the electrical impulses with sound information flow the the speaker (large or small.)
It won't have increased current because of it's more generous size.
TIny wire, however, could choke off an adequate transmitting of sound info.
The tiny doorbell wire example was extreme, but really happened.
you're not going to get more electircity flow just because the wire is bigger.
A water well will have just so much flow potential. A tiny pump or tiny pipe will limit & restrict flow because they choke it off. A huge pipe can flow a tiny amount of water. It doesn't flow an ocean of water just because it is big.
Your speaker wire is not generating electricity, only passing it through. Speakers do have power handling limits. The integrated amplifier or receiver has a pre-amplifier/controller volume control to determine the loudness. In fact, with speakers, too little amplifier power ability can cause serious problems so the speaker will not sound good. (a situation called "clipping.")
One last question.
Is it better to sauder the ends or just leave them bear? i read that in one of the forums!
Pardon my french ♫♫
just make sure the wire will make a good, solid, positive contact with whatever kind of connector the speaker has. Don't make it any more complicated than necessary. I've soldered wire ends for an auto radio, but never for in-home.
SA-XR57 receiver Panasonic
Should I go with the Panasonic SA-XR57 receiver insted it should have more connection the HTIB?
POLOR SPEAKER WIRE SIZE NOT INPORTANT BUT
I would save save your money and invest in a good a/v/ amp for around $250 you can buy a sweet amp with tons of inputs. Then the most inportant part of your sweet home theater system is going to be speakers.Spend as much as you can afford remember great speakers will last a lifetime you will never have to upgrade them. good luck steweee
