    Hello,

    Can anyone give me some incite on in wall and ceiling speakers. currently i'm finishing off my basement and in doing so i'm restricted to using rear surrounds in my ceiling. Will this configuration work well? Also, what would you recommend for in-wall and ceiling speakers.

    Thanks.

    Well, I'm currently doing the same thing your doing. My main goal was to make sure I spent as little money as I could, and still keep a somewhat timbre matched system.

    Because my room is so small, I have to install ceiling mounted rear channels. I chose a pair of Polk RC80I for a $150 pair. Up front I have some Polk RTi6 front channel, and a Polk CSi3 center channel. I can't tell you how they sound because they are not installed yet, but I think it should do a pretty good job for my 16'x12' room.

    From what I hear, you'll want to install some insulation in the ceiling to help with bass reverb. Kinda like how you would put insulation in an enclosure.

    I'm doing this mainly because my next door neighbor has the same setup, but he's using different brands of speakers. From what I have heard his HT sounds great. The rear channels have no problem panning or anything.

    Not to mention it looks sharp.

    If you want, I'll keep you posted. I have some pictures of my setup, and if your interested, I'll provide a link for you when I get a chance.

    That would be great. Keep me up to date. Have you ever looked into Niles speakers?
    Thanks

    How do you like your Polk speakers after all this time? Thinking of getting a pair myself. Thanks!
