    Hi everyone,

    really a newbie when it comes to setting up speakers so here goes.

    set up -

    Planning to purchase - LG 60PX950 or LG 60PZ950 (if ever they release it)
    Blu Ray player - PS3 or LG BD 590 or might wait for LG BD 690
    Audio Receiver - Onkyo HT-RC270 7.2-Channel Network A/V Receiver

    My problem - i have no idea how to deal with the speakers.

    there are 5 holes in the living room (pre wired) - yes another one of those new homes that i got sucked into. There are 3 holes in the front and 2 speakers at the back.

    my question - i'm assuming the ideal way to go would be a 5.1 surround sound - if i go with a 7.1 speaker system, i would have to drill some holes (wife might not be too thrilled about that idea)

    can anyone help with what speakers to get and what size?

    i saw some speakers in amazon - Polk Audio RC80i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers, not sure if i should go with 8' or 6.5' - plus which speaker do i buy for the middle speaker?

    or should i go with the rectangular speakers? Polk Audio RC85i 2-Way In-Wall Speakers

    lastly what type of SUBWOOFER should i get?

    The size of the room is about 12 feet from the edge of the couch to the wall

    either way - really need someone to help me - any help anyone can suggest or advise would be HIGHLY APPRECIATED.

    this is for the living room - primarily to be used for movies, gaming and music.

    Budget is about 500 to 1,500k. would prefer less if it is possible.

    Thank you again in advance.
