In-Wall speakers for Home Theater
The wife would like to remodel the living room, which is fairly small, and I think the first casualty will be my floorstanding speakers. The fronts are Polk RTI10s and the surrounds are Fxi30's, and I'm not sure about the center but it matches the RTI10's fwiw. Anyway, I'm hoping to sell these and have enough money to put a couple hundred bucks with them and get something that sounds half-way decent as in-wall speakers. I've got a Velodyne sub that's pretty great so I'm not too concerned with amazing bass response, but does anyone have any options for, let's say, in-wall speakers at <$200 apiece? I'm not hung up on brand, but have looked at Polk, Klipsch and, believe it or not, Monoprice.

If anyone has experience with in-wall speakers I'm happy to hear, even if it's way above or below my price range. Thanks!

im not an audiophile but i've read the reviews on the monoprice ones and i think they'd be tough to pass up based on reviews and price

Why in wall? Have you considered on wall? Ascend acoustics, nht and Polk make some good ones

Agreed on-wall should be looked at as well. The thing with in-walls is they reply on the wall cavity to act as there box and may alter the sound. Thats why I used definitive technology in-walls becasue they have there own box. Look on there site and see what they got. I got mine from a guy on ebay that was close to 1/2 the price. Figure thats a safe beat on speakers...not sure id do that on electronics tho.

I had the largest monoprice in walls with the monoprice sub and surrounds in my man cave theater set up and was very happy with the sound quality and volume... Great product for the $$ in my book. I'm about to do it all over again in my new place and won't hesitate to purchase similar items.

I honestly haven't thought at all about on-wall speakers...that is a great idea. I haven't been to Best Buy in so long I don't even know if they would carry anything worth looking at (we don't have a Magnolia BB).

KEF T Series

They can be mounted on the wall and they sound absolutely fantastic.

I would not get their sub though.

There are plenty of good in-wall LCR's on the market that are completely housed.

Ascend Acoustics Fantastic reviews and has good bass response.

NHT On wall Also fantastic and comes in white.

Polk OWM5 Heard these were pretty good. Not as good as the other two.

These look like they might fit the bill quite nicely...if I can get a decent return on the speakers I have now that is.

Thanks everyone for suggestions; I appreciate it!
