Hi everyone. Need some assistance in picking our my surround sound channel. Fronts are Magnepan for sides and center. As you can see from the photo below I have two options. Either put speakers in the ceiling or mount them on a small wall area facing the TV (albeit farther back). The speakers, if mounted on the wall area would have clear space between them and the couch (the drawing isn't clear about that). The scale is on the bottom right.
What do you guys recommend for location and, based on that location, what speaker would you recommend? I want to be all in for the TWO surround speakers at no more $650.
