Hello All,

New here as I am building my first theater room. I done framing and reading to run wires soon. The room is about 19'Lx16'W and 9' ceilings.
in advance and I look forward to exploring this site more.
I am about 99% sure I will be going with an epson 8350 projector.

However, I am lost when it comes to sound for the theater. I have seen a few polk package systems that seem ok, but I think they just wont deliver enough power to the room. I really dont know anything about sound or what to look for. The room will be used for mostly movies and sporting games, not much music.

Looking to keep it under $1650.

Thanks for the help and I look forward to reading more on the site in the future.

Is your budget for just speakers and sub or does it include the receiver as well?

I have seen several receivers on discount at the stores around town, so the budget is really for speakers and sub. Seems I can get a good receiver for around 300bucks, depending on if its 5.1 or 7.1, etc.

I have been looking at putting 6 of these, Polk Audio RC85i. A Polk Audio Dual 5.25" Two-Way Center Channel In-Wall Speaker - 255c-RT..

This total I been quoted $725...

Review seem good for this set. However, not sure if I can mount one set on the ceiling or not. Also what sub would work best for set-up?

I would look to speakercraft and as far as polk ,also look to there RT vanishing series,there getting good reviews, have a good warranty. The 255 c,265 rt ,will make a good front stage & 65rt at the rears makes a nice matched set.
And with your walls open now is a good time to build chambers/back boxes,insulation..will improve sound and performance regardless what brand you go with.
For in wall subs ,your gonna have to spend a lot $$ at least a grand, a quality in wall /floor sub should come in its own chamber box and need a separate amp. Your better off with a active sub. You will get way more value and performance for your $$
