Bipole/Dipole vs in wall for surrounds

My gear so far:
Dennon x3500
Polk A9 towers
Polk Csi 4 center, (will possibly upgrade to csi6 )
PSW10 sub
another sub to be added

I need some surrounds! Looking at the Dipole/ Dipole Polk Fxi4/6 vs In wall RC85i Polks

Would love some input!

I have a large open basement room (see attached layout) My couch will be in the middle of the room.

For my 5.2 setup
My surround speakers will go on the sides -one on the stair wall and the end of the room wall on the other which is about 4' further away from the center of the couch

Will you ever convert to a 7 channel setup? If so then that future change could influence the choice. I think another major driver should be your feeling about the looks of in vs on wall speakers. Both can perform well but the ascetic will be very different. Along those lines, are you putting wire in the wall for both? In which case both speakers are locked in position...and it'd be good to verify you like the sound of the placement first.

Center room is difficult for bass, they recommend 1/3 or 2/3 for better response. You might find yourself in a null.
