Depending on where you can located them, and how many, I think Silver LCR InCeiling are probably a decent choice, but Triad has introduced a couple other models in the last year that might work well. Maybe if you post more data (like how you will be driving them, and how many etc etc, others will be able to give you smarter advice. I'm thinking maybe your dealer or installer might be a good source of info too. I haven't got experience with that size room.

I'm not quite ready for speakers yet, but I've made up my mind that I want Triads. Now I have to decide whether to do inrooms behind the AT screen or in walls? In walls would save me some room on a already smaller space, so kind of leaning that way.
If I was going to start all over again, I might go 'InWall' for my LCR. I have an acoustic screen and use InRoom speakers there. But InWall would have saved space and they are engineered for that precise boundary proximity, which is cool.
But they are less easy to handle, harder to find on the used market, and if you want to adjust or move rooms, they are that much more work. Tradeoffs.

I've found a lot of good info on Gold LCRs, but not on Plats (no surprise given the $$). I have an aversion to bright speakers, and I know the Golds apparently have a neutral/warm sound. Would appreciate any feedback from the group.
There are several owners of Plats earlier in this thread (like a few years ago) talking about them and their sound versus other high end options. Do a search or two and you'll find several user reports.
