I am looking to set up a 5.1 in ceiling setup, for my mother-in-law. Her room is ~15ft wide, ~30ft deep and 9' ceilings. The TV area is in the front half of that room. The TV is a Sharp 80" with seating about 12 feet away. The electrician wired for in-ceiling speakers, and she would like to keep them hidden.
I've been looking at the Definitve Technologies UIW RCS II, for the front three and UIW RSS II for the surrounds, but am looking for all suggestions within the budget. The budget for speakers, receiver, and subs, is $4-5K.
Retail on the Deftechs is ~$3500, looking ~$650 for a receiver, and probably start with one sub from HSU, PSA, Rythmik, or SVS for ~$900-1000 and add a second later if she feels the need. This brings the bill to right about $5K.
Aesthetics (in-ceiling) and sound quality are the most important things. She doesn't want to have to upgrade anything once I have put in the setup. What other speakers should I look at? I can probably push the budget a little.
On a side note, does anyone know of a higher end A/V showroom in the Salt Lake area? I have always done online before.
