    I have a few questions regarding this system. 

    - Does anyone have a pic of these speakers with the grill on, I am curious to see what they look like dressed up?

    - I live in  a condo and there are some very difficult fishing problems that make the summit wireless stuff attractive.  The short stroke is, can you place the center speaker box at the rear of the room with the wireless system and have it detect the front of the room properly?  Option two is leave the center speaker out of the equation totally. Any other ideas on speaker layout?

    - How does the preamp transmitter handle obstructions, such as a wall. Will it manage to go through a drywalled aluminium stud wall and make it to the speakers?  What is the effective, none-obstructed range for the transmission?  Will the couch, or bodies affect the signals? All my other crap in in the next room over, wired through the north wall (makes for a messless living space).

    As per problems with fishing wires, I am dealing with two exteriors walls, both of which have a drop down ceiling along the edge for vent shafts and six foot tall windows. The building is concrete and I am on the top floor so there is a crawl space above the ceiling but no way to access it.  The only way you could fish wires would be to put a LOT of holes in the walls and ceiling. I can't imagine an nastier fishing job to clean up after and I am fairly handy with such things. The only redeeming thing so far has been the ridiculous number of outlets.  There are 5 each one placed rather nicely by where a speak would go.  So I can see this system working very nicely for me, otherwise I will just dumb it down with a 2 speaker setup and forget the rest of the jazz.

    See map, mostly to scale. I forgot to add dimensions but you'll figure it out, close enough. Also the TV is mounted to the left of the fireplace on a arm that swings out and centers it over the fireplace, works really awesome actually.  (o:  The right side of the space is kitchen.

    Hello and welcome to the forum! 

    Sorry I am having trouble viewing your image, but I can still answer your questions. 

    If you are on the product pages for the individual speakers there is a gallery below the large image where you can view the speakers with the grille on.

    Hmmm not sure if the center channel would be detected if it were at the back of the room.  In any event you would not want to do that as it would be pretty strange to have all the voices coming at you from the back of the room and the other sounds from the front speakers in front of you.  The summit system cannot be configured for 5.0 use without a center. 

    The summit transmitter box has a range of up to 30 feet but no it will not go through walls very well, or at all.  So if it needs to be one room over from the speakers, then the Summit system is probably not the best for your needs.  

    Unless you can get the transmitter in the same room with the speaker and figure out a way to get the center to the front of the room then I think a two channel set up may indeed be your best option. 

    I hope that helps but please let me know if you have more questions, thanks!
