    OK, I'm building my first surround system and I'll be installing a pair of Polk f/x300i bi-pole/di-pole speakers as the left and right rear surrounds:

    Now I need to pick a center rear speaker for mounting on the ceiling. (A ceiling mount is my only option at this point.)

    My inclination is to just buy another f/x300i but I'm wondering if there are other models worth considering.

    One other model that might provide a cleaner installation is something like the Polk in-wall RC55i:

    But I'm wondering if I might be sacrificing sound quality with the in-wall design.

    As background, I'll be driving these with a Denon AVR-3801. Up front I have two Monitor Audio Bronze left and right and a BIC DV62CLRs center.

    Thoughts or recommendations?

    Thanks!

    Bob,

    In my experience, in-wall speakers are not that bad. The only bad part about the in-wall speakers is that you need to buy a pair, not just a single speaker.
