Eight escapes nice. The cost of having Roman install the buttkickers and isolation feet is about the same as buying them yourself. Buttkickers in front and none in back would be exactly how i would do it. I would love to have more escapes in back but the support poles in my basement make that very difficult. One other option you can consider to save some money is to have lagoons in the back. That would make the front row true premium seating.
