    I need help in narrowing down by options for my Great Room (main family room area) in a new home construction.
    The room 19' x 18' that opens up to a kitchen area. 18 foot 2 story vaulted ceiling. This isn't my man cave, but the area where a lot of social time will take place.

    Listening habits on a 65"/75" television are general HD televisions shows, Live Music Concert BluRAYS, Movies (4K, Netflix, etc), and streaming music ( IN THAT ORDER).

    I'm looking at $1500-$2000 budget and have narrowed down a few choices.

    1. InWall Bronze Satellites for LCR. InWall Bronze Satellites Left/Right Rear Surround.

    2. RSL W26 for LR (https://rslspeakers.com/products/rsl-w26-wall-speaker/), CG23 bookshelf speakers for center (https://rslspeakers.com/products/cg23-monitor-center-channel/), C34E for the Rear left and rights (https://rslspeakers.com/c34e-ceiling-speaker/)

    3. HIS HIW-1 Horn In-Wall for LR and Rears (http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/hiw-1.html) and HC-1 MK2 Center (http://www.hsuresearch.com/products/hc-1.html)

    I probably can't go wrong with any of these setups though.............

    Triad is definitely the "gold standard" of in-wall speakers, but these are all good options.

    I would also not neglect to get a subwoofer, in-wall or separate. It's critical to enjoying the bass content in movies and music.

    That should work very well. What are you planning to use for a receiver?
