That one Onkyo auction is closed. Is a refurbished one like this any good?

Ok, question about mounting the surrounds. I was looking at the Full Metal Brackets. Are those what I should do? Or is there some good cheap way to mount QS4s? I don't really wanna spend nearly $80 just to mount 2 surrounds. But if there is no other way. I was banging on my wall and have come to find about 3 studs I think will work.

Room

I labled the one where the right surround could go and 2 where the left surround could go. Which one is the better left, and are those even good at all having them that close? But mainly are the FMBs worth the money or is there a good cheap way to hang them?

Edit: Nevermind about the bracket aspect of my question, I now see that they come with some default brackets. But I still need to know where the best place to mount them are.

SL, if the bed location isn't going to be changed, that's about the best that can be done, but the one you labeled "R"(actually the left surround) should be separated a little farther.

ok, it looks a bit closer becasue the rest of the picture is cut off, but it'll still be pretty close together. My bed pretty much needs to stay where it is because the bed is the only piece of furniture i can have in along the window; the dressures and tv can't go by the window becuase they block it. This allows me to have maximum floor space which I need for my DDR pads (Cobalt Flux's ^_^) So then which should I go with? the speaker to the right of the bed or behind the bed? Would it be bad to have 1 right and 1 back, or should both be back if 1 has to be?

2 more questions.

1 more on the surrounds, do you think a setup like this would work? it would make a bigger listening area, and how would that be any different than sitting on the right side of a theater and being closer to the right speaker?

And, I am still unsure of what to do with the subwoofer. By getting the 150 watt hsu one, would that reduce the power of all my other components to 150 watt? And would getting the 200 watt one from axiom be too powerful that it could make disturbances to others in my house? I want quality, but too much power on the subwoofer could be a bad thing. An extra $350 is alot..

The QS surrounds are very forgiving on placement, based on the way the in-phase drivers fire up/down/left/right. Your room is not the ideal setup for home theater, however, I've seen a lot worse. You will be able to adjust the levels of the surrounds so your left one compensates for the further distance. On the other hand, putting them on the wall behind the bed, as far apart as possible, and maybe slightly pointing downwards would work also. A Powered sub, drives it self with its onboard amp, it will not suck power from the receiver. Depending on your house layout, any sub will be heard throughout your house, low bass likes to travel. Think about when your sitting in your car, and you hear that annoying thump, thump, thump, dang that drives me nuts
