This seems to be the biggest in-wall forum around, so I'll ask here.
Up front I have a sub with Polk RT20i bookshelves and an older Polk Center. (Just got the PA120 Premiere Acoustics Sub and love it as per recommendations here. Thanks!)
I want to do 5.1. My receiver can do eq on each speaker to some degree and it can vary by input source which is kinda nice so I think I can get away with cheaper in-walls in back. I'm getting the notion that I'd better do 8" if I want any bass at all.
First thing to point out, the couch is against the back of the wall where there is insulation. I cannot do in-wall speakers firing from the side since on one side is the hallway.
Secondly, the ceiling has no insulation but the back wall directly behind the couch has insulation (not an outdoor wall though). So since our heads would be less than 1 foot from in-wall speakers, would it be better to go with in-ceiling?
Thirdly, it seems there's a real shootout here at the bottom of the barrel. People here really like the monoprice models. What about them compared to Sonance HiFi Works which I can get really cheap? Also TSC
as the new kid on the block has some interesting offerings.
If this was for the front, I'd splurge on the Polks, but is Polk worth it for the rear speakers?
Thanks in advance guys!
