Is that 1/3 of the 700 sq ft closed off by a wall? If not, you are going to need a system that can fill 700 sq ft, which is why some of the responses are suggesting the systems you propose won't do. I think a 3.1 system, with towers that have some 5-6 inch woofers. You can get the Polk M70s and matching center for about 500 dollars, then get the best sub you can afford

Ugh, finishing a basement (which yields the most possibilities for great setup/speakers with the least compromise) and only looking at installing little "architectual" speakers is like working on a classic car project and dropping in a smaller engine than the original stock one!
Those little speakers are great for background music, or for a bedroom set, or for implementing in a room where you absolutely can't put in in-walls or have the speakers' presence be obvious.
What are you doing to make the TV "disappear" into the room? Is it a 22" TV? Or will a painting slide away to reveal the TV behind it?
Why did you get a nice receiver if you're going to pair it with tiny little speakers?
How will you use the system? Who will listen? How loud?

I thought the r180hd come with a wall mount. If I remember it does extend it from the wall a small amount. I've heard good things on the def tech speakers, they just aren't pretty to look at like the monitors. Any other suggestions?
