Re: Can on-wall speakers perform as well as floorstanders?
I typically don't recommend the use of on or in-wall speakers for home theater use, unless space or wife restrictions apply. Especially for the front speakers (L, C & R), I'm in favor of typical floor standing or book shelf speakers to create a well balanced and controlled audio field. As for the surround channels (main and back), the use of in-ceiling speakers or di-pole on-wall speakers will not harm a theater. So little audio goes thru the rear channels, I recommend that folks spend the extra bucks on the front 3 speakers and save their money on the surrounds.
