    Hello,

    I'm still undecided as to the direction the new room is going to take.

    Originally I had thought about building speakers into a cabinet to keep the wife happy so was looking at sealed or front-ported designs.

    Over the weekend she has thrown a spanner in the works. She quite liked the idea of four floorstanders and a centre in the room.

    Result!!

    Or so I thought...

    I'd left my copy of HCC on the coffee table and she found this months install where the guy had used in-wall speakers and she said she wanted to do it that way!

    Arghhhh!!!

    Now, to the question. I've got about £1000 to spend on speakers so where would my money be best spent?

    4 Floorstanders & Centre?

    Or,

    5 in-walls?

    How would the performance compare?


    M

    PS I'll be getting a separate sub anyway.

    In wall floorstanders are available quite pricey I presume
    Sonance for all in-wall.

    Sonance eclipse in ceiling are pretty good but £1000 for 5 is too little and even £1000 for front 3 is pushing it for in walls! Look up sonance and see what you like the look of.
