    In-wall Speakers placed in Ceiling?

    Wayne, I'm trying to find out why in-walls and in-ceilings are built the way they are? Is it because the sound is traveling down versus across etc. I am one of the few people that I know of that have in-wall speakers in the ceiling. Most if not all in-ceiling speakers are round and resemble...

    In-wall Speakers placed in Ceiling?

    Does anyone know why most in-wall speakers are rectangular and 2 & 3-way configurations and ceiling speakers resemble car speakers? The home we purchased has in-wall speakers (SpeakerCraft 6.0 RT) in the ceiling. They sound like nothing but mid-range. I will be building a box to enclose them...

    Should Video Interconnects Run Through Onkyo TX-SR700

    I have more than enough video inputs on the TV to handle everything I have and then some. The receiver can convert composite video to S-Video, but I don't need the function - both my VCR & cable use S-Video. The advantage seems to exist only when you have a limited number of inputs on the TV?

    Should Video Interconnects Run Through Onkyo TX-SR700

    In need of HT Experts. I finally received my TX-SR700 yesterday and I'm wondering what advantage is gained by running component video for DVD, S-Video for cable & VCR through the receiver. Right now I have everything running directly to my Mits-55807. Will there be any improvement or...
