Sorry -- I didn't see the line about no ceiling.

Those speakers would be an excellent choice. I'd do 3 pairs rather than 2, though. More uniform coverage with 6 speakers than with 4. Tap them...

I don't think he's installing separate antennas -- just 1 broadband antenna that he's splitting to feed both his TV and his stereo.

FMTVSs haven't been made for several years. Frustrating,...

I hope they do. My Samsung DTB-H260F did, as does my IView 3500STBII. You would think that if a $38 unit could do that, a much higher quality (and more expensive) one would.
