I was searching for decent set of in-wall rear surround speakers and found these. http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showdetl.cfm?&DID=7&Partnumber=300-036


Anybody tried them or have a good option for under a $100.

For the price those probably sound pretty good.

Check out MCM Electronics they sell several different brands of in-walls. They have a 4" set for $35.

I checked those out they look interesting the power handling is a little lower than I would like. I looked the 8" that my be an option. Have you used MCM products before are they any good?

I installed a pair of the in-wall 8" subs for a friend. All things considered (time, money, space) I was very impressed. I haven't heard their in wall two ways but if they are as good as those subs I'd say go for it. I have head the PG in-walls and they sound pretty good. I'm sure you could also find those for less than $100.

That's funny you mention the PG in-walls I was just looking at those. Which ones did you hear, if you remember?

I don't know the model number, but they were 6.5's. Most decent for the money. Great for HT and pretty good for music.

Why do you want to go in-wall just out of curiosity? Lack of space?

Guess I don't have to. But I thought it looked cleaner and The Wife said it was okay and I didn't want to push my luck.

It's not bad don't get me wrong, it's just a lot more flexable if you don't do in-wall. If you ever wanted to move your furniture, or the speakers or got a new TV or moved your TV room or whatever it would be a lot bigger pain in the arse.

in my basement i have 2 pairs of the dayton 8" 3 ways and a pair of the dayton 5 1/4" 2 ways for the bathroom with separate volume controller. for the size of these speakers, i am very impressed and have been recommending them to everyone. get them...you won't be disappointed. i'm going to add a sub, finally use my ss rlp-12 (logoless)...had the thing in a box still from when the first came out...lol. my set up is not for home theater, just rockin out and playin pool.

Thanks for the info on the Dayton's I am probably going to try a set.

As far moving my T.V. and furniture the lay-out in my living room, the only way to do it is the way I have it. The fireplace and entry-way confine my options in the rear.

Thanks for the help

Ahhh, well that solves that problem lol. Good luck with whatever you find. B&W have some in-wall installation stuff but it's a little expencive but it sounds pretty **** good.
