Not very big. And actually, the A/V Reciever is only 500 watts (100 watts x 5), and the stereo amp for the subs is only 260 watts (130 x 2). And I'm underpowering all my speakers (except for the fronts and the center)- not by much though. I'm aiming an upgrade in a couple years- I'm looking for a high quality A/V 7.1 Channel reciever that'll do atleast 140 x 7. I believe Onkyo has one now that'll do 170 x 7 (at 8 Ohms). But it costs near $4k. So it'll be a while till I upgrade this setup.

And all the speakers (save for the center and subs) are old. The two rear towers are Curtis Mathes- whom no longer makes audio equipement any more. I replaced the subs (12") and mid ranges (5 1/4" ) on those two. The sound improved drastically. As for the fronts, those are stock as you can tell from the pictures- their from an old Sears LXI series stereo of mine. My sister is using the stereo, but I kept the speakers. The subs are in new actually. I found some old 3-way floor standing Fisher boxes, gutted of thier original speakers, at a local thrift shop for $20. I bought 'em, and picked up some 15" subs. I lined the inside with foam completely, made a custom crossover, and called it good. For those of you who might think the subs are beating themselves to death from all that bass vibrating off the foam- the boxes have a bass port, plus the two hole for the other two speakers I have open to allow for more bass to escape. So no, the subs aren't pounding themselves to death. And when I say the quality is on par with what you hear at a Theater- I'm not being sarcastic. It is that great, just not nearly as loud.

Believe it or not I'm still not done customizing this setup. I still want to modify the Fisher boxes my subs are in. I want to add a 10" down-firing sub to each of them. But that will be quite a bit later as I'll need a far more powerful amp for that. Yes, I'm obsessed with good, clean bass.

I'm using Z-5500s too. Cheap, decent sound and small. Everything I need in my place.

And I was waiting for that to come up as well.

That dresser used to belong to my little sister. When she was younger, that is how my mom tought her organization. Her dresser happened to be larger than mine. So, being that I'm quite a bit larger than my sister, I out-grew the dresser I was using. As such, her and I swapped dressers. I tried to remove those labels- but they're aren't comming off easily. And I'm too lazy to get some towels and some adhesive remover to scrub 'em off.

There, now ya'll know.
