Hi guys! Been a while since I've graced this forum. We are moving into a new house in which I'm having wired up for 5.1. My wife is more or less forcing me to get inwall speakers and I'm totally cluless as to what is out there as far as the best bang for the buck for rear in wall speakers. Any suggestions would be very much appreciated. Thank You!

I haven't tried them, but the JBL SP series has inwall mouting, and they appear to have the same drivers and EOS tweeter that the Studio series and Northbridge series have.

I don't know what your budget is, but Atlantic Technology has some real nice dipole inwalls, but they are pretty pricey.

The IWTS-10e has dual 4.5" mids and dual 3/4" soft domes, and full retail is $900/pair. Many dealers will come off that price a bit, though.

They also have some neat in ceiling speakers that have a single woofer, but dual tweeters that can be configured mono, stereo, or dipole. The 6" version is $275 each.

I haven't heard the new round in walls, but the aforementioned full dipole is great.

Check out www.atlantictechnology.com for more info

Thx very much for the replies guys!!! I always try and research as much as possible before purchasing so It's greatly appreciated!!! I would like to keep the budget below $250 so the JBL's do look nice. I'm also looking at the Polk RC85i In-wall speakers which also look nice because they come with a rotating directional tweeter and at about $150 should keep the wife happy.
