I’ve been putting this system together for a few years piece by piece always with the intention of filling out a larger room. I’m almost at that point and I think it will really bring the system to the next level. Main challenge is ceiling heigh in my basement which is about 8.5 feet in the center of the room but there are room length bulkhead seems on either side which cut that down a bit.  When we moved into th house the basement was already finished which made wiring quite challenging.  Will add more pics when time permits!
