I think you mean 14' (( 14" is shorthand for 14 inches, 14' is shorthand for 14 feet )) I completely understand why the TV is where it is but I have to agree that being up that high on the wall is not an optimal situation. Ultimately, you just have to use the space you have in as practical a way as you can. I wouldn't spend too much time trying to rework the speakers unless you just can't stand things as they are. In-wall speakers certainly streamline the room, but in your case you will be dealing with an external, insulated, load bearing wall with windows and a fire box. So you are going to have additional headers, framing, and a vapor barrier to deal with. Spend some quality time with a stud scanner to see what's under the sheeting. Mounting in-wall speakers is simple; running the wires is where it can get a bit "interesting".
