I'm looking for some opinions on flush in-wall speakers.

You won't need a 12 hour long song, just loop a minute long white noise audio track.
There are tons of free to download white noise audio tracks. There's even white noise radio on pandora.

MalwareBytes is my goto to.
Even the free version is solid.
