Okay DIY'ers, I have bought a house. I have already ripped out walls, floors and put in new framing, but while I have choices I want to work on a sound system that is built into my ceiling. the roof is 24in trusses, but some people say sonos is a better option and to use outlets. let me see opinions on whether to go wireless or wired through the roof for an overall home sound system
pic related, i removed 2 walls to make a large master and a medium walk in
this side is the closet and single toilet, i moved the wall out 2 feet and made it into a larger master bath

No you don't. It will sound like shit. Wiring? Sure. Run the wiring in the walls and place mounts near the outlets but don't mount the speakers in the walls.
Mount them in the walls but don't drywall over them.
cut out holes where they'd be the same as you do for power outlets and switches then put drywall up and mount a speaker dover over hole in drywall.
And that studwork needs to be nogged out for sheets of drywall to go up nigga
its more pain in the ass than it is fun.
Projects are fun because you want to do them.
House projects, you are usually forced to do them.
But maybe I just have other things I'd rather spend my time doing.
This x2. Planning is fun, paying for materials not so much, starting is cool, at about halfway through you usually have to start forcing yourself toward completion, and when it's done you're proud, but you don't want to do it ever again! Then you come on here and tell some guy in the fun stage to just buy it/hire a pro and everyone hates you...
I have this.

Even if you don't want to use their speakers you can use their method of broadcasting and using your own speaker systems.
desu, those are garbage.
OP. get some proper hifi / stereo setup instread. don't fall for audiophile snake oil.
i got some kind of project too, pic related...
k. i have a black berry dedicated to streaming internet radios on my hif--
wait, actually i just wanted to post one photo of that barn here and move on, why am i even engaging in this discission? ignore/block pls. 'night. !
OP, what are you looking for out of your sound system? There are speakers designed specifically for mounting into your walls/ceiling, but they're designed for lobbies, etc. to deliver ambient music, so if you're aiming for a good audio experience for sitting and listening or watching a film you're better off getting hold of something that can be mounted separately. Of course, you can always run cables through the walls and outlet them to external speakers - it's pretty easy to get hold of wall plates for most speaker connection standards (including bare wire).
