Surround sound receiver for the TH

Looking for a surround sound receiver for my Wolfpack 30 WP. This will be hooked up to the TV. Already has speakers installed. Any suggestions ?

What kind of surround sound are you talking about? Like a 7.1 system or a basic L/R & F/R? Also, are you looking at a home theater system running on 110v or car audio system running on 12v?

Do you have speakers you are planning to hook up to? Passive or Powered Subwoofer? Start with those...then figure out your needs in a receiver. Also...what are you planning to hook up to the receiver. How many HDMI's do you need...blue tooth...etc. You need to figure this stuff out before recommendations can be meaningful.

As stated, speakers are already in place. As stated, a TV will be hooked up to the receiver.

The already installed speakers are 4 ohm car speakers and are incapable of handling real power and may blow the output transistors of home 120V receivers designed to power 8 ohm loads (though some more expensive home receivers are capable of 8 ohm loads). 5.1 receivers are virtually out of production today in favor of 7.1 models. For a greater selection of features and price...suggest you look at 7.1 and just wire up 5.1 if you don't want sides and rear effects.
I would further suggest that you understand that a 5.1 set up will ONLY give you effects from the second pair of speakers so you may wish to consider if you want full sound spectrum only up front ...or if a receiver with the ability to power a pair of "B" speakers for another room is needed.
I strongly suggest replacing the car speakers ... both for compatibility as discussed above AND because $3 speakers suck. If you don't...buy a cheap receiver as you won't notice any difference anyway.

I understand a TV will get hooked up. So this means a blue ray player will not be hooked up. A video game will not be hooked up. An Ipod will not be hooked up, a usb stick will not be hooked up a radio will not be hooked up and the surround sound digital audio from a satellite dish will not be hooked up. Right? Exactly WHAT from the TV will be hooked up? HDMI output, Composite audio and video, component video/audio, digital optical audio out, coaxial digital audio out?
