I am building a home theater in my basement, and recently bought the RC85i in-wall and RC80i in-ceiling speakers. Because the basement is being built from scratch, I have full access to all studs for easier installation. I see that Polk offers pre-construction mounting brackets for both sets of speakers, and am wondering if they are worth the money. It would cost me roughly $50 per set. They are difficult to find - in fact Polk's website does not even sell them, which makes me wonder if they ever really took off, or were just a waste of money. Advice on how to best mount these would be great!
P.S. For the in-ceiling mount, I am planning on installing sound isolation clips. If you aren't sure what they are, here is a pick and link to their website. Anyways, Would these metal strips affect instalation of the speakers? I am having a hard time visualizing how the install will go. Thanks!
