How Many Ceiling Speakers Can I Fit?

This does vary by speaker and amplifier, on the product pages under "Key Features" we detail the maximum number of speakers an amplifier can handle.

You can connect more than four speakers by using a speaker selector switch with overload protection, these allow you to connect up to 8 pairs without damaging the amplifier and also allow you to individually turn each pair of speakers on or off.

Do Ceiling Speakers Need A Subwoofer?

In most cases ceiling speakers do not need a separate subwoofer. High quality ceiling speakers with a good amplifier can sound great on their own.
