Premium 6-Speaker Home Theater Installation
Our take on the Premium 6-Speaker Home Theater Installation by Crutchfield's Steve Kindig
Today's hectic lifestyles mean we can't always find the time or energy to do all the things we'd like to. But why deny yourself and your family and friends the enjoyment of a high-definition TV or multichannel surround sound system just because you don't have time to install the gear? Let INSTALLS inc take the hassle and worry out of installation so you can get straight to the fun.
Note: INSTALLS inc uses a network of independent contractors who are unaffiliated with Crutchfield, and we are unable to evaluate each individual contractor.All home theater and flat-panel TV installations include:
- Pre-installation phone survey to review actual work to be performed and to confirm installation appointment.
- A pre-installation site survey upon the installer's arrival at your home will be completed, and if applicable, any additional charges will be quoted and approved prior to the start of the job.
- Programming of up to two non-learning remote control devices to operate connected components.
- Cleanup of work area, including removing any packaging from your home.
- Limited professional installation labor warranty for one year.
- Obtain your satisfaction sign-off on completed work order.
- Connecting your newly purchased audio and/or video components in one room.

Audio or video components include: TV, VCR, DVD, DVR, Internet TV, video game unit, audio receiver, amplifier, CD player, CD recorder, audio tape deck, MiniDisc player, home theater speaker system, and/or home-theater-in-a-box.
- Mounting up to six (6) speakers (mounting brackets not included) on wall or ceiling.

1 answer Is this just a How To or does it include speakers? My newly built home is pre-wired (5 in-ceiling speakers & 1 in-wall for Subwoofer). What can you recommend on a Budget of no more tan $100.00 per Speaker. I need 12 total ( which includes 2 Subwoofers) 6 for my Theater Room & Six for my Family Room. [ John Apr 13, 2015 ]
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Check it out, these charts tell you exactly what you get for the installation price; http://www.crutchfield.com/Support/InstallsInc.aspx For a recommendation, I would definitely lean towards a Polk setup considering the Budget; http://www.crutchfield.com/I-rXYEc111/cart/EmailCart.aspx?emKey=1250913 The in wall subs are very pricey. If you're open to a non inwall sub, you would get a sweet discount on sweet Polk subs that would put you into a very nice price point. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Apr 14, 2015 ] Staff
