My future setup I am working on is Polk 70's in front, cs2 center. For the rears, I need something that can hang off the ceiling, low profile but can be a good match to the 70's. The room is about 25 feet long and 16 feet wide. For a theater room.

Prefer something sleek and clean and not distract from the rest of the room.

thanks!

Since your doing Polks upfront, might want to stick with them for the surrounds as well with maybe something like this:

Their supposed to be very versatile and perfect for surrounds

thanks for the recommendations...

any others?

If I mount a flat ceiling speaker would that work? It would be downward firing as opposed to aimed towards the back of the seats?
