Let me start by saying this...my wife out of the blue said "you should get rid of the speakers you have on speaker stands and have some in walls installed like Jamie and Eric (our friends)" Now...my wife usually critiques me on my AV expenses as opposed to supporting them so I dont want to wait any longer before she changes her mind. I called the company that did my friends install and he is coming out next Friday to give me a quote but I want to be prepared. I do know a few things about this company, one of which is they really endorse Speakercraft speakers, and Integra receivers. I am not familiar with either one of those, and at this point dont plan on changing my receiver (unless I can convince my wife I should . But over the phone he told me the Speakercraft in walls (didnt tell me which model) would run me $130 each. I had originally looked at the Polk RC85i which are $165 a pair. So, I could save myself $250 if I didnt go with Speakercraft. Can anyone help me understand why I should choose one over the other? My second question is, for the left and right rear speakers, I may be limited in where they are installed because behind the couch is a wall of windows and there is only about 10" of space behind the windows, not including the studs. I could go with smaller speakers for those two or could mount them above the windows which would be about 8 feet high. Is that too high? I could always angle the tweeters down I guess. Below is a pic of what I am talking about, I apologize, its a very old, outdated pic from when I first moved in. Here is my info...using a Sony STR-DG920 receiver, room size is about 17'X23' with 20' ceiling, plan on replacing my current sub.
