Can someone let me know if speakercraft speakers are going to make a good surround system. I am looking for the best possible sound system. Let me know if you would change anything or do anything different or if the price is good. Would you recommend getting ceiling speakers for the front and center channel or should I get a standalone speakers would it sound better? This system is going to be a 7.1 channel system. Let me know your thoughts. Thanks

Have you listened to those speakers? Don't purchase any speakers you havent listened to.

Are you looking for the best possible surround system, or the best you can get for $1500?

Between my mains and my center channel in my main surround system, its $3500 alone....I always recommend standalone speakers and not in-walls for at least the fronts and center....

$1500 was just for the wiring the total system is over $10k but that is more then just the surround sound. I haven't listened to them yet there isn't many box stores left that has home audio to demo.
