There is no drywall installed yet and we have already wired up speaker wiring, HDMI, and electrical wiring through studs. My intention is to use in-wall LCR speakers around the screen as I like the cleaner look of in-wall units. I also don't have to worry about in-wall speaker leak-through as this bonus room is above a garage.
Best would be using an AT (acoustically transparent) screen so that you can put 3 identical bookshelf or tower speakers behind it, ideally with a false wall as in pics below.
~ Are you a "geek hobbyist" obsessed with squeezing out that last 5-10% improvement? The economy will thank you...especially the Chinese one. Or are you more of a get-set-and-forget "casual user" who simply wants to increase your enjoyment of movies, TV and gaming? Relax, HT isn't rocket science, nor does it have to cost an arm and a leg---especially if you ignore the aforementioned vocal minority. And remember to smile...it's just a silly hobby, after all. :)
