    Is anyone using in-wall speakers for Home Theater? I am thinking of using them for sides and rears in my HT room. Any product recommendations appreciated.

    I'm using Polk Audio in-walls (with 6.5" and 8" woofers). Good price/performance ratio and aimable tweeters.

    Polk Audio also makes round ceiling speakers.

    David,

    I've been using 5 in-wall speakers for my theater setup for a few years now. I have actually modified them a bit and use them as "on-walls" where I made MDF cabinets to house the in-wall assembly. The center channel speaker is in its own cabinet on a shelf above the TV.

    I was able to paint the speakers/cabinets the same color as my walls, so my wife was happy.

    However, now, I want to branch out a bit more. I'm looking into 3 front speakers for use in my family room. I'll still continue to use the 2 rear/surround speakers in their on-wall fashion, but desire 3 better speakers in the front for music listening and hopefully better movie dialogue, too - that the movie watching/listening experience is horrible at the current moment.

    The speakers I used were NXG Pro 620s. 6.5" woofer, neo tweeter, etc. They can be found on-line for about $80 a pair.
