Does anyone have experience with in-wall speakers? My wife and I are buying a new home soon. I'm starting to design a new A/V system for our new place and intend to go with in-wall speakers (I personally like free-standing models, but I'm doing this as a peaceful compromise with my wife who never really took to a large pair of Polk towers I recently parted with).
I've considered KEFs in the past. I've never owned a pair. As well, I've never owned any B&Ws. I also know Polk (and many others) have extensive in-wall product lines. Right now I'm considering KEF or B&Ws, but I'm open to recommendations.
B&W has a whole range of in-wall speakers varying from entry-level to really quite expensive units. Have a look on their website at http://bwspeakers.com under the Custom Installation Series. It's quite interesting. The series for in-wall is the CWM series. The in-ceiling speakers are the CCM models.
have you listened to paradigm? depending on your budget, cs series is fairly good the price. ams series is mid level. to very nice sounding SA series. give them a try,
