OK, I think I am going with In-Wall speakers (for WAF). I am going to have a Electrician install them while he is doing some other work. I want to make sure I understand how they should be placed. I have a 40 inch LCD on the wall. This is what I am thinking...


left and right: about 65 inches apart (in case I get a bigger TV) and some where between ear level and middle of TV.


Center: Directly below the center of the TV


Rears: I'm not really sure where to place them. I cannot place them in the side walls (there is only one wall, the other wall opens into the kitchen). I have a sectional sofa (L Shape) against the wall. Would it be better to place them in the ceiling or against the rear wall?

I wanted to provide some more information about the rooms diamentions.


Left wall: 11.5 feet long

Rear wall: 9 feet long

Front wall: 19 feet long, but there is a fireplace. The TV will be centered between the left wall and fireplace (12 feet).


The family room opens into the kitchen (that's what the rear wall is shorter)


There is a sectional sofa that runs the full length of the rear wall and most of the left wall.


I hope this is enough information.

With the sofa against the back wall, I would use in-ceiling speakers for the surrounds. I would place them just outside the seating location (if that's possible - if not, then wherever is convenient actually) and you should be fine. Besides, there just isn't as much information in the surround channels so they aren't nearly as critical as your front sound stage which you seem to have covered.

Sure if that's what works. Like I said.... it just isn't all that critical.

Ok, thanks. Since these are going to be InWall and InCeiling I can't experiment much.


See any problems with a Electrician installing them rather than a specialist?

As long as he can read and isn't color blind.... nope.
