    Anybody have any recomendations for built-in speakers?
    A friend of mine is building a new house and has decided to take regular speakers and mount them nearly flush with the wall.[​IMG] I tried to tell him that the speakers would not perform well stuffed into a wall with only and inch sticking out, but he wasn't interested. But that got me thinking. I have no idea who makes decent built in speakers.
    Thanks.

    Does the lack of answers mean nobody builds decent built in speakers?

    Proficient Audio makes the built-ins in my house and they sound very good to me.

    Daniel,

    Your friend might also consider "on wall" speakers which have a very slim profile. Additionally, one can make MDF cabinets for in-wall speakers, stuff them with polyfill and have some quite nice sounding speakers. Actually, that's what I currently have for my five speakers.

    My wife didn't like the looks of many of the speakers out there, I had very limited funds at the time and a great background in woodworking, so I set out to create such an item. The cabinets, frames and grilles are all painted the color of our walls and blend, along with sound, quite nice. [​IMG]

    Daniel,

    In regards to "on wall" speakers, Sonance appears to make such a product. Here's a link:
