I have 3 rooms that I am about to wire for ceiling speakers:
A) Basement Office/Man-cave: 9' x 14', ceiling 7'3"
B) Basement Office: 12' x 19', ceiling 7'
C) Living Room (directly above basement): 13.5' x 19', ceiling 9'
My goal for sound for each room is not high-end sound, just a decent sound to fill each room, for music ranging from smooth jazz to rock to pop.
1) I have conflicting opinions on how many speakers are needed for each room. Some say 2 speakers per room, some say 4. What do you think?
2) Also, I was thinking of using 8" speakers, regardless of if we go 2 or 4 per room. One source swears by Polk SC80i's, while another is recommending Dayton US820C's. Opinions welcome on this as well.
