Four Speakercraft AIM wide ceiling speakers for 7.1

I'd like to upgrade to 7.1 and I already have 2 rear ceiling speakers that I am using for my 5.1. Researching it, it seems that many install 2 side surround speakers and then use the 2 rear ceiling speakers for the back surround speakers. I called Speakercraft and they said that they recommend using 4 of their AIM wide ceiling speakers instead (2 for the surrounds and 2 for the back surrounds). Has anyone done this, or does anyone have useful input on this subject. I would greatly appreciate your input! Thank you.

No one here thinks that SC speakers are a very good deal or are very good - period. If you want 'em, get 'em. Otherwise, ask general HT questions or ask for other brand recommendations.

I understand...thank you very much for your reply. I need to go with 2 side surrounds which unfortunately have to go into the ceiling as only one side wall (the other part of the room is open), and 2 matching replacement rear ceiling speakers (to replace the two Bose 191 in ceilings I have now which are about two feet behind the sofa in the ceiling). I have I would greatly appreciate recommendations! Appreciate input!
