    In-wall speakers

    I was searching for decent set of in-wall rear surround speakers and found these. http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...number=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?

    Re: In-wall speakers

    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.

    Re: In-wall speakers

    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.

    Re: In-wall speakers

    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.

    Re: In-wall speakers

    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
