Setup

I won't turn this into an installation review, it had its challenges as a retrofit and I'm sure a professional would have done it quicker and easier than I. Having said that, snaking wires was most of the battle, the speakers went in without a hitch, other than the depth issue with the HT-700 I'd already mentioned – measure your joists!

The 14 gauge speaker wires, also from SnapAV all terminated at one location and I spent some time making cables to easily connect the package to the receiver, in this case the Rotel RSX-1550, currently under review.
