I have a room in the basement, roughly 10x23 feet. I plan on making it a play room by day, and a theater by night, though the theater part may wait a while.

Since I am about to drywall the room, I want to have a rough in for a ceiling mount projector, with a conduit and power run to it. The question is, without having a projector picked out, what sort of distance would be safe to mount this at, compared to where the screen would go?
Also, in a room this size, should I look into running any more speaker wires than for 5.1 surround?.. does the size justify 7.1?

Thanks

Why bother choosing now, see this thread from the dedicated theater forum for your answer!

P.S. I went 7.1 in a room a little smaller than yours. Is it worth it, I don't know but I am happy with the results.

Thanks
I will try and prep for 7.1, I have the wire, so why not. I will try and make the wire hidden, until I actually start mounting speakers.
I will see if I can figure out a good spot for the power, maybe do as was suggested and run a wire down the length of the ceiling and reach up and grab it, when I know where it has to be.
