 Hi All, new to the forum...

Looking for info on what speakers I might look into for my home theater front 3 in-wall speakers (keeping timbre in mind) with a $1,500 budget. 

Your help is appreciated.

5.1 or 7.1?  First, this is far more possible then people will admit with decent results.  So, don't give up :)  But what kind of other components do you have?  Receiver/etc.


Ask Me about HTPC! (Threads in HTPC / PMs always responded to)

Check out what is available from the internet only companies, such as Axiom, AV123, SVS, etc.

Be prepared to spend up to half the budget on the sub. For HT, the sub is the foundations. You can build up from there.

Good luck!

In Ceiling Side and Rear Speakers: Need Input
Subwoofer: Need Input - Ideally will be installed below the floor in crawl space w/ HVAC louver look


Thanks again,
