I recently received my svs 5.1 system. I was originally going to use a ceiling mount to mount the rear side surrounds until i saw them and now i think that they may be too big for that. My room isnt very big and the couch is against the back wall. Kind of pressed for space and dont really want to place them on stands. I am trying to figure out what to do.

One option i am concidering is to use the speakers in zone 2 or just return them and purchase in ceiling speakers for surrounds. Any thoughts on that? It would make my life much easier. I would still use the front 3 svs and sub. I am by no means an audiophile but i do like things to sound good. If that is an acceptable thing to do what in ceiling surrounds would you recommend that will not break the bank? Thanks for the help.

In-ceiling rears are a great idea IMO. I got a pair of "Musica" brand in-ceilings a few months ago on ebay and I like them a lot.

Do you notice a difference between them and say bookshelf rears? Do they have aimable tweeters and if so does that help?
