Receiver and 5.0 or 5.0.2 Speakers Bundles (No Sub)
Perhaps you already own a kick-ass powered subwoofer (or two). Or you’ve got your eye set upon separately purchasing a specific sub (or dual subs) offered by one of the specialist brands (such as REL Acoustics, SVS, or Velodyne). Or you simply prefer NOT to include any subwoofers within your system immediately or at all for whatever reason. Maybe one of the two pre-matched 5.0 or 5.0.2 speaker home theater bundles featured below which include a surround sound receiver, front left and right floor standing speakers, a center channel speaker, two rear surround effects speakers, and possibly two Dolby Atmos elevation speakers will do the trick for you. Speaker wire, HDMI cables, et cetera are sold separately.
