Hello! This is my first post here but I have been a lurker for a while. I am trying to build a 5.1 system for my den and also add two speakers to my patio outside. I have two constraints - budget ($1,500) and how the system looks in the room. I initially looked at the Bose systems because they look clean installed but have read enough online to decide against them.
For my system, rear in-ceiling speakers are a must. The fronts don't have to be in the ceiling but relatively small so that I can put them on top of my entertainment center (not ideal, I know). The system I have assembled, based on reviews, is below. Can you give me your thoughts on how everything will sound together? I have read a lot about speakers being "timbre matched" - what does that mean and how important is it?
I have found all of this on Amazon.com and combined, drive out price is right at $1,300.
Thanks in advance.
