Im building a new house and want to wire everything properly before we put the drywall on and I have some questions. House will have a home theater system in the great room, master bedroom and possibly a dedicated home theater room in the basement down the road.
1. Should I go 5.1 or 7.1 in the great room? I always through 5.1 was enough but the room will extend back way beyond where your sitting so maybe with the extra room the 7.1 would be worth it? Any suggestions?
2. Are in ceiling speakers ok for surrounds? Does the fact that they point down really mess up the sound or are they ok? Any reccomendations on a medium budget?
3. Are there any decent in ceiling subwoofers out there? I guess a lot of people here are going to suggest an infinite baffle but I would prefer something sealed. Im currently using a 15" ascendant audio avalance (these were highly recommended on here about 10 years ago) in a 3-4ft sealed box. Im considering mounting it between trusses and just making an outlet in the ceiling. Any thoughts? The wife wants to loose the big box in the living room so I have to do something.
