I will be using in-ceiling flush mount speakers for rear surrounds in a 5.1 system in my family room (no other choice available to me). I keep seeing recommendations for Speakercraft AIM speakers.

Do I really want to aim the tweeters at my listening position? Won't this improperly focus the sound?

With very little experience in this area, my feeling is that the best speaker in my situation is a fixed mount woofer/tweeter setup that just broadcasts the sound straight down with 60-80 degree (or better) dispersion. Is this correct?

A related question -- are there any inherent advantages or disadvantages to coaxial speakers versus a standard two-way design? It seems some of the "upscale" speakers I have looked into have the woofer/midrange separate from the tweeter. Again, I am solely referring to flush mount in-ceiling rear surrounds here.

Thanks in advance for any info on this subject.
