Okay I am in serious need of some help. My basic set up is a 5.1 I just ordered another amp to upgrade to 7.1. also ordered the uaw8.2 in walls for rears. My intial plan was to replace my xrm4.1 with the uaw8.2 for surrounds sides and order the uac 8.2 for the rears, but in the end decided to keep the xrm's on the side walls due to emotiva being out of stock of the uac8.2's. I need help on where to place my rears now. My set up is I have vaulted ceilings where the rears will go and this is the only place I can put them the back wall is in the kitchen which connects to the ceiling if that makes sense, I will post pic later im at work now. Is it okay to use the in wall speakers on the vaulted ceiling for in ceiling, they will be facing the seating position and i can point the tweeter or are the in wall strictly for side walls, how do you guys think it would look. Also which direction is best vertical or horizontal. Another option would be to just take my xrm 4.1's down and use the uaw8.2 for the side walls and just buy the uac6.2 for the vaulted ceiling but i fear i might sacrifice sound taking down my xrm's. Just looking for help before I cut into my walls and hear my wife's nagging want to make sure of the best option.
Will their be a problem considering the uaw 8.2 have no backing with them in the ceiling, is their some type of cover i can buy for the speaker being exposed, dust and things(insulation) from the attick could clog the speaker up causing it not to perform well right or am i reaching?
