Absolutely! Well Said Epso!! Guess what you are the Owner and The BOSS!! And believe it or not you are the CONTRACTOR!!! your Writing the Check!!! As Stated do a change order and if not needed to I would have them Pre Wire and get your own Speaks and install them your self!! If it too complicated with all the Controllers you can Hire a Low Voltage Contractor after the Fact or get the one you want NOW!!! The Aim 8 -1 is the Entry Speakercraft, you can buy those for $135-$200 Each!!!!! So be warned , do your Research and get Good Speakers .instead of Cheap Contractor grade..Contractors have there Prefernce cause they get at a certain cost,, he's Gonna make more $ off you from the Speakers than the Actual Labor!! Speakercraft makes good Speakers but they have a lot of different level Grade Speakers.. obvious you dont need hi end in the Bathroom or hallway but you also dont need Spend $1,440!! Really!!! I would really shop that around..
