    Is it possible and/or acoustically sound to install in-wall speakers into brick walls.

    I would like to install a pair of in-wall speakers (probably Kef or M&K) either side of a standard victorian bay window.

    Other than the installation issue (knocking a huge whole in the wall), I'm concerned about (1) Damp getting into speakers and/or room, and (2) Sound vibrations spreading into neighbour's house

    Any feedback would be much appreciated.

    Most manufacturers supply a housing box for installs.... Doing this ensures a proper enclosure designed for the speaker, so all you have to do is securely fix it. This could be surfaced mounted or partly sunk into the plaster. Try and find a dealer to demo first tho... There are a lot of duffers out their !!!! If your pocket is deep enough try out the B&W 8NT's they are pure class and are very close to a reference type speaker but without the deep bass.
