Looking for advice... Newbie here

Hi All, 

 

New to the forums here and wondering if I could get some advice. Just started putting together my home theater and purchasing speakers as I go. 

What does this group think I should upgrade or add first, not looking for top of the line, but decent mid-range set up for the basement. Floor plan is pretty open (about 20' x 28') with the theater contained one side. 

 

Ultimate goal is a 7.2.4 set up, however the receiver market is pretty rough, so I know ill be looking to replace that eventually. 

 

Below are the details of my current set up. 

 

AVR: Pioneer VSX-834

L&R: Klipsch R-820Fs

Center: Klipsch RP-500C

Side Surrounds: RP-600Ms

Front Height: RP-500SAs

Sub: R-100SW

Receiver and subwoofer look like the weakest links to me-- a nice sub or two will take some of the strain off your Receiver if you crossover your speakers cut out some of the lower frequencies. Pictures of your room / setup would help and might encourage others to chime in.

I would get another Receiver with more power and add at least 2  or 3  pairs  of RP 600M along with 2 subs , the rest of the gear is ok , the extra speakers and subs  are needed given  the room is pretty big at 28 x 20  -
