He negotiated a "Win-win" price for them, all based on me going with him, listening to them, and they were from a fellow AVS person.
I'll post his post HT review results in 2 months.
I also advised him (4) Volt-8 for the ceilings and (2) Fusion-8 for the rears, due to open layout he cannot install sides.
He's also going dual 18" ported subs, false front AT screen wall.

Make sure the enclosure is put together straight and sturdy. The care the person put into the enclosure shows the care he put into making it function right (bracing, etc.).
It's good to know that asking someone to remove a driver and see the inside guts is within bounds, kinda like when you buy a car you lift up the hood and poke around as much as possible.
