Gonna need a lot more details:

Is this new construction, or an existing home?

Dedicated home theater room, or will this be part of a living space (living room, family room, etc.)?

And the big one - what's your budget?

Its in a living room space its 16x16, 8ft ceiling. I have a 60inch plasma, onkyo txnr809, 2 boston acoustic a360 towers, a225c center, 2 BIC v1220 subs and now looking at some in ceiling surrounds. The space is not an ideal one specially with the tv over the fireplace and dimensions, but the mantle is on the short side so its not bad. Its a existing construction. theres another living room so im considering it a 90% dedicated ht. im gonna need a remote to control everything (xbox360, ps3,receiver, tv box, etc. Im planning on upgrading the sub woofers and right now the main thing im looking at are some decent in ceilings for surrounds.
