I'm close to buying and this is the list I have. Please please make recommendations
4-Polk Audio RC85i 2-way In-wall Speaker
1-BIC America F12 12-Inch 475-Watt Front Firing
1-Polk Audio Signature Series S35 Center Channel
Denon AVR-X1500H Receiver

All that looks good other than the subwoofer.
I'd also recommend the RC55i or RC65i for that small a space as their smaller woofers will have better off axis performance which is something you want in an in wall speaker especially.
Are any of these subs within budget?
PORTED SUBWOOFERS $600 AND BELOW, DELIVERED
*THE LARGER PORTED SUBS DELIVER AT LEAST 40% MORE SOUND PRESSURE LEVEL
THAN THE SAME BRAND'S SEALED VERSION WITH SAME SIZE WOOFER AND AMP
*IF LOOKING AT LARGER/MORE EXPENSIVE SUBWOOFERS ADD PSA TO THE LIST OF BRANDS
*IF YOU ARE NOT AN ACTION MOVIE FAN A SUBWOOFER WITH 22-30HZ EXTENSION WOULD BE FINE
*FOR MUSIC A 30HZ SUB IS A FINE CHOICE
*BEFORE BUYING MAKE A CARDBOARD CUTOUT OF THE SIZE OF THE SUB TO MAKE SURE IT IS NOT TOO LARGE FOR YOU
