How are the selections of the Polk speakers in terms of bang for the buck?
I was looking at:
(4) Polk RC85i In-Wall (Front Left, Front Right, Rear Left, Rear Right) = $340.00
(2) Polk RC80i In-Ceiling (Side Left, Side Right) = $140.00
(1) Polk PSW505 Subwoofer = $200.00
(1) Polk 255c-LS Center Channel = $279.00
Total is $959.00 which I think is pretty good for a 7.1 setup of this quality, but are these properly timbre-matched? I also assume since none of my runs should be more than about 20' that I would just buy 200' of 14AWG CL2 Rated 2-Conductor Loud Speaker Cable to make 8 individual runs to the receiver. Is that correct? The contractor is willing to mount the speakers and run the cable as long as I provide the materials.
