I'll let someone else talk about in-wall speakers. I personally wouldn't have them because they are far too restrictive.

I will assume that your budget does not include that $1,000 Onkyo AVR. ...

I thought the same thing with my 3.6's. What bass it could produce (down to perhaps 35 Hz) was unique to any other speaker I have auditioned. It felt like a wave slamming, instead of a punch. When...
