+1 to exploring the area below the TV, be it for soundbar or in-walls.
Next, consider expected listening/viewing area ear height vs. speaker height - why I like below TV. You'd like tweeters at ear level, and you can get closer under the TV.
Finally, avoid directional designs unless you can point them at the listening/viewing area. Specifically, MTMs have altered response above and below tweeter height and must be aimed at the seating area for proper frequency response. Even TMs at 9.5' should be tilted down, but a flush-mounted MTM at that height is a bad idea.
