Ok, the wife has allowed me to convert our second lounge into a home theatre room, the only proviso is that I use inwall speakers, has anyone here got any experience with them. What brands can be recommended, any tips would be appreciated.

Cheers

Rob

I have a pair of Paradigms and think they are great. As far as advice, make sure before you cut any holes in your walls you check to see how close you can get the speakers to your TV without causing interference with your picture. Many in-walls are not shielded and they can screw with some TV's.

Sonance is good quality and has some really good stuff (including speakers that you drywall right over and they completely disappear.

I'm using Merlots as L/C/R in my living room mainly because I was cheap and they were small (didn't have a whole lot of room in the wall) and being in the industry I could get really good pricing from the manufacturer.

You don't want to dump in wall speakers in a completely open stud cavity if you can avoid it... nice to create a "box" with framing/blocking above and below otherwise you can wind up with some funky reverb/low end issues.

Mount at ear level.

Shouldn't be a problem with an LCD or Plasma display.
