Several hours surfing and I'm nowhere close to making a decision on a new receiver. Tight budget~$1250) for receiver and speakers is holding me back--hence needing to cut any extras. Note I'm not an audiophile- just your regular ole paralysis through analysis guy, unfortunately.
Has anyone installed these in a drop ceiling? After getting these they seem heavier than expected I have an Armstrong drop ceiling with 12"X12" tiles and I am now not sure if the weight of the speaker is safe for the tiles. Any tips on installing also would be appreciated.
I finally got my home theater system for my living room all set up and did Audyssey XT calibration. Here is my setup...

-SVS PC12-NSD Sub
-Polk Monitor 70 Floorstanders front

We have a house that is prewired for (5) in-ceiling speakers and the subwoofer to the side (in front).
The room is 19' wide and it is 12' from the television location to the rear speakers.
The kitchen is behind the viewing area so the entire depth of the space is roughly 26'.
I already have an Onkyo TX-SR606 receiver and a Polk Audio PSW505 12-Inch Powered Subwoofer.
What speakers should I use given my $750 budget? I have looked towards Polk, simply because I already have a Polk sub. I am open to other suggestions though. TIA
