Can you recommend a pair of in-wall or small rear speakers to use in a 7.1?. These are the rear center pair of surrounds.

These are not ideally located as they will be above windows about 80" at top. So if in-walls hopefully there is some way to aim them down towards the listening position.

I mounted my bookshelves on that wall but they are esthically too big and ruin the balance of the room.

My other speakers are Acoustic Research L,R&C. The two side sorrounds and JBL in-wall (2 way) with 6.5inch woofer and fixed position tweeter.

Any thoughts appreciated and a way to go here.
thanks!

Ceiling would be real tough for me as there is no attic to work in. Its a vaulted ceiling that angles up

in walls above a window would be strange i think

how about a small center speaker mounted above the window - angled down?

i don't think dual speakers are always needed, depending on the room size

i went ahead and put the inwalls above the windows. Seems fine so far. I can always make a bezel later to angle them downward if I want. its the full 7.1 deal now. Now I just need to calibrate the woofer and trim the cutover, recal the entire system and im done.
thanks again
