We are remodeling our house to produce a big family room with a giant wall of glass looking out at 7000' mountains about 2 miles away. Architecturally the room will look very cool. We know free standing speakers are a lot cheaper, but the room will look much better with in-wall speakers. The free standing speakers I was looking at were RBH 55 towers, Canton 509.2s or Chane 5.4s. We want sound at least that good.
The room is large, 22'W * 30' L * 15' H. One side will be glass and the other open to the kitchen. The speakers have to be big enough not to get lost (sonically) in the room. The installation will be 5.1.4. I'd go with 7.1.4 but there is no place to put surrounds directly to the sides of the main listening position.
We are interested in clear, accurate sound, particularly dialog, mostly for movies and other video. We do not listen at very high volumes.
The KEF In-wall speakers, Ci5160RLs are as expensive as we are willing to go.
Are there other better speakers I should consider?
Would the KEF Ci3160s have sufficient power in a room this size?
If we do go for the Ci5160s for LR, would the 3160 be enough for the C?
Thanks in advance, Bob
