Yes, they have to be in-ceiling speakers because of my wife.........Any input?
They need to be square or rectangular but not round to be symmetrical with the room.


I bought PM 1000 for $129 each (refurb) and bought the PC 2000 for $199 (refurb). Ideally something around or under $200-250 for the pair of in-ceiling rear speakers would be my target....

Then what about the UIW-55, personally I prefer a separate driver over stacked like the 5.5, you can get some referbs on E-Bay for between $225-$275 a pair.

He concluded that the 8040 is going to be (sound-wise) the better choice compared to the PC-2000. Since I like the look of the 8040 better, I think I'll go with that one. I'll probably get it from Best Buy, like you said, to have the return option. Thanks for your help.
Cool, I've actually gotten some great advise from Chet over at DefTech, and unlike some places a lot of his suggestions actually worked out "not" in their favor financially, and considering that every situation is slightly different and he's working off just information provided by the customer, he's been pretty spot on. And even with my system being all old school tech, he's been more than accommodating to help me with info.

Let us know how it turns out.

In an unscientific way Timbre is tonal quality, and it is actually more important than driver size matching, normally best way to tweak your system as far as speakers go is timbre match first, driver match second. And especially with the front three, since their relationship is far more important than the relationship to the surrounds.
