I have a soundbar, two play 5's, and a subwoofer. I want to add the same speakers in another room. Are they any issues operating all eight speakers, particularly the two soundbar's, simultaneously?

Are you using your own Wi-Fi or do you have any of your Sonos devices wired to your network?
No issues, in terms of 2.4GHz wireless capacity, whether in WiFi or SonosNet mode unless there's competition for channel bandwidth from other sources. Each PLAYBAR will talk to its satellites over 5GHz. And each will independently look for the clearest 5GHz channel.
