I was wondering if it would be possible to mount regular speakers in-wall. I would love to try this with the speakers from my Onkyo 6.1 surround system.


I mean, cut out a portion of the drywall to fit the speaker, create an in-wall support "shelf," and slide the speaker into the space until the front grill is flush with the drywall. Has anyone tried this? Would there be a reason not to do so? Please share any stories or advice. Thanks!

No problem, as long as your speakers are no more than ~ 4” deep...

There are at least a few good reasons. For one, flush-mounting has a negative effect on imaging, just as you have with “regular” in-wall speakers. It may also alter the frequency response of the speaker, just as you get from putting the speaker inside a cabinet. And you might also have problems with the sheetrock resonating or making audible noise.
