I am looking to make my own Home Cinema in my room, on a budget. My mother may be paying for the Projector, due to my good exam results, but she won't spend too much on me. Nothing more than £250. I will be paying for the Speakers and for the Screen most definitely. I want the screen to be able to come down from the ceiling in front of my curtains, and I want 5.1 surround sound, but it needs to be able to handle Pro Logic II, as that is what my Wii uses for surround. I am going to be using my PC and my Wii with the projector, and maybe more things like that as time goes by.

So far I have been looking at this for the projector, this for the speakers, and this for the screen

I don't want to spend too much money as I am also saving for a new amp, but seen as the Blackheart I want isn't out yet, I might as well do this now. The speakers are almost definitely crappy, but they are the only ones I have been able to find so far that can handle Pro Logic II and are wall mountable

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. If this gets done, I will post pics

Forget that dude. Why waste your money? Buy a new guitar or that amp you want. You already have a tv and to waste money on something like that.... Its ridicules. Guitars sound better than playing wii. Remember that.

its not just for playing wii, its for watching movies and listening to music from all around my room.

and the amp i want, isn't released yet, i cant get it

and seen as the TV i actually get to watch is about 20" non widescreen, i think a 100" widescreen TV as big as wall would be pretty cool

yeah its pretty over-priced. i think its that much cos its a starwars thing so they try and get as much money as possible but its still a really good invention if you ignore the star wars thing.

Buy a good radio. They come with surround sound. Save your money, you said youself that you dont yet have the money for the amp. At least you will be ready when it comes out. And I have a 19" in my room. Spending that much money on watching tv is a waste of money!

Forget it dude, buy all you can. Its you who will kick yourself when you're older and have seen what you have done.

I think he should buy what he wants. If he'd rather have a home cinema than a guitar amp then the power to him. (Though I wouldn't make that decision!)

I do believe you just used Blink 182 and hard rock in the same sentence. It would seem you're rather confused.
I have a quote in my signature! And it makes fun of blink-182! I'm cool now!

thing is, I basically have enough money for the amp now, and I won't be hurting my bank balance that much by buying this as the main money my mum will be spending, and by the time the amp is released, I will have remade the money I spent on this. I will easily be able to afford both things.

But if my mum decides she won't buy me a projector, obviously this plan goes down the drain

most of this home cinema set up is a gift for passing exams, let him get what he wants he doesn't have to spend every single penny he gets on guitars and amps.
