Hi everyone! I am in need of some help. I am building a new house and have decided to build a inwall home theatre system that is multi zoned. The area that I really need some help in is the home theatre area. I purchased a pair of rc85i's for my front L and R. I am looking at doing a 7.1 setup. Do I have to have a matching center channel and rears or can I match them up with the sc series. This is what I am thinking R85i's front L and R (purchased) SC-C for centre channel and 4 in ceiling sc80-ipr for the rears. I just purchased an pioneer av receiver 9.2. I am getting a Velodyne EQ-Max 8 subwoofer. Will this work? My main concern is having rc85 model that will not match up with the sc's in the rest of the system. The other question is the sc-s supposed to be used as a centre channel? The last question is do I need 4 rears or will 2 cut it. 5.1 vs 7.1 I don't mind the added cost if 4 are better.
Thanks in advance for any and all your help. Can't wait to get my new POLK system going.
