I suppose that this is the wrong place to ask because I will only get positve feed back
but it is a good place to start.
I am trying to figure out what to do for my surround speakers in my HT build. The room is 14'-6" x 22' and will have an AT screen. Front speakers will be AV123 Rocket RS-760' for left and right and a RSC-200 for the center (trying to find another 760 for the center). And a SVS PC-12 Ultra sub.
I need 4 surround speakers for a 7.1 system. I do currently have a pair of Rocket RSS-300, but they are no longer made so I would have to buy a used set to have 4. The 300's worked fine but didn't seem to have as direct sound as I would like being they are dipole, but to be fair the room they were in was horrible for a surround setup.
I have really been leaning to the Emotiva ERD-1's because they are switchable from Dipole to Bipole so I could try different combinations and they have a front facing woofer so I thought I would get a little better direct sound, and they fall into the budget.
Then I got to thinking about inwalls and it might be nice to have the speakers more hidden in the walls. The side surrounds will stick out right in the area of the step that goes to the upper seating. I am just over my head with all of the choices that are out their for inwalls and don't know where to go. I like the looks of the Triad again because of the forward facing driver and they fact that they have a built in encloser, I don't want an inwall I have to build a box for. If I do inwalls I don't want to cheap out because one a hole is chopped in the wall I don't want to change speakers.
I am looking at the Inwall Silver Surrounds. They are going to be over twice as much as the Emotiva speaker. Are they twice as good??
The only thing that I don't like about the Triad's are the fact they are only dipole, it seems that people lean toward having bipole for the rears.
If I could win the lottery this would be alot easier.....
