I only have experience with one setup with the 3 main channels in ceiling. It was spec audio in an upscale home. As Nick said, not good. If you go the route you are contemplating you will at least have height channels pre-installed for later. I

Interesting. I was considering the in ceiling for a 7.1 dedicated home theater. Front and center on wall and the 4 surrounds in ceiling. I was considering the for asthetics. Sounds like it might not be worth it if the sound quality will be that po

I work with a guy that went with in-ceiling speakers when he built his house. He went with over-priced product that the local "audio/video experts" priced up and installed. Honestly, it sounds bad. I know that surround speakers don't nee

What "channels" are you referring to as surrounds. The in-ceilings in this build are height channels. Are you referring to side/rear surrounds?

Looking for opinions. Axiom folk are always good for voicing thoughts. Is the extra cost of buying Silestone, Caesarstone or Cambria Quartz worthwhile compared to real granite for a countertop? http://www.cambriacanada.com/en/Advantages/performance
