I am setting up a home theater in my basement. It was previously finished as a general area and I'm looking to set it up. The wall my TV will be on is open so i have run cat5e and rg6. I am also looking to run wiring for the rear channel speaker. My problem is positioning and type of spears for rear channel. I am going to wire 3 rear's for a 6.1 setup. Two of the walls are finished and insulated so I can't install speakers/wire in those. The other wall has a staircase which prevents me from wiring there. I want the wiring not exposed. So I am left with the ceiling. I have access to the ceiling joists so running the wire will be easy. My question is what to use. I know ideally the rear channels should be about ear level when standing. And obviously putting the speakers in the ceiling won't allow for that. Are there any in ceiling speakers that are good for home theater? Or is there a speaker mount that works similar to the wall ones. I appreciate the help. I will have wall jacks behind the TV stand for the speakers. The space is about 11.5" x 11.5" with a 7.5" tall ceiling. I want something that is good but no overwhelmingly expensive. This is my first house. Thanks.
