Alright so I'm moving into a new home and part of this will be putting a 5.1 system into the great room/family room with a TV over the fireplace. I know almost nothing about the current gen of in-wall speakers so I need some advice on what's going to be best for my situation. This room has 2 story ceilings with openings all over the place; I know I'm not going to get good acoustics, I've resigned myself to that. Also because of the openings all over I am probably going to have to put all the speakers except for the center at the second floor, floor level height. There's no back wall on the first floor and I don't think the front wall has space for speakers either (you can see the floorplan here: http://ekroner.net/floorplan.htm). The room will be mainly used for watching TV and movies and background music. So what are the best inwall speakers to use in a situation like this? Obviously I'm not looking for sub advice (read my sig if you don't understand). I would imagine that ones that can be pointed would be better than ones that can't (especially because of the fact that they are going to be so high) but from what I hear, the majority of them are pretty crappy. I heard this from a friend who is a custom installer but at the same time his experience is somewhat limited to the brands that he works with. He agrees that pointed speakers would be better but dislikes any of the ones he knows of and recommended just going with the Canton Ergo 180 in-walls (which he likes) even tho they aren't directional. Budget is somewhat flexible; I can't go nuts on these but because I'm not going to be able to build my home theater for at least a year or two I liquidated all my HT gear and can use those funds for these. Also with these being in-wall and everything I don't want to have to upgrade them anytime in the foreseeable future. I'd say my max budget would be something like $5000 and I'd have to be getting some amazing sound out of them to even consider that level (but don't let that keep you from recommending something that is $5500, but don't recommend something that is $15000). At the same time I'd love to spend $1000 if I could really get good speakers for that. Anyway I hope I rambled enough to get my point across. Let me know if there is anything else you need to know and thanks in advance for any suggestions.
