Hidden/minimal 5.1 speaker advice - 4k budget

Hi everyone -

What would your advice be for a 5.1 setup that must be hidden or very non-invasive? It'll be used like 60/20/20 for TV/movies/music, respectively - totally general purpose.

The room is a combo kitchen and family room. Section devoted to media is ~9Wx16L with overall room ~25Wx18L'. Ceiling heights are 9'.

Will be sitting about 13' from screen.

We are building a false wall so can frame openings in any fashion.

Thanks in advance. I really appreciate everyone's input.

Following up with my current research in case anyone else may be interested.

I did get a recommendation for B&W CWM7.5 for LCR channels. http://www.bowers-wilkins.com/Speake...es/CWM7.5.html

I've also been reading about the Rel Habitat1. http://rel.net/usa/products/habitat-1-landing/

I'm a little hesitant to build subs into the wall like the B&W ISW3/4 - worried that they would make the wall vibrate. Is this an unfounded worry?

Depends on the construction of said walls and what sort of installation you do. I agree that it is risky.

MartinLogan has the ultra-slim stuff that might work well:
