Surround sound question

I'm finishing my basement and would like to add surround sound speakers. I have 2 columns in the back of the room that are wrapped in drywall, and will eventually have wood over them. They are situated perfectly for rear channel speakers. I'm on a budget and was considering purchasing used bose cubes. I optionally could do in wall speakers.

Any suggestions on in wall vs external mount? Any speaker recommendations? Also, are there any guidelines on mounting height?

Don't bother with bose cubes. If you want something small and easy to mount just get some NHT SuperZero mini monitors. Otherwise you can consider in walls.

Also, you need to clarify "rear" channels. Many people mistakenly call the side surround channels in 5.1 as "rear" channels. 7.1 has rear channels. In either case, the NHT's will get the job done, better than the bose.
