Currently doing a remodel on home which is going to open up all walls. I would like to install HT now which we have not had in the past. This will be in a den which is opened to the kitchen and be the main living area. Den will be about 25x 14 and then the kitchen will be open on the long 25' side.
Since we did not have HT before we do not need the best system. 2 Things limiting us, speakers must be in ceiling for rear because they open to kitchen behind and TV will be mounted above Fireplace. I know some people hat the TV above FP but we need to in the layout.
Any way, I've searched in ceiling speakers and Polk seems to have the best. Should I do 5.1 with 4 ceiling speakers? Will the SC line be enough? What other speakers pair with the SC? I will have Book shelves on the sides of the Fireplace so I can go BS speakers instead of ceiling. How do you put a center channel with the TV above FP? You cant put center in the ceiling can you? Does it have to be lined up with TV or can it be off to the side?
What about a sub woofer, do all setups need one or can you get anough bass from the speakers?
We will listen to some music, not loud, other than watching TV and sports and some movies.
Thanks for the help.
