We're in the process of building currently, final engineering plans being drawn as I type. The living room\theatre is open plan, 5.5m wide and 11m long before you hit the kitchen, so I'm looking for rear speaker ideas.
Standard boxes or wall speakers won't fly aesthetically or placement wise as 7.5m of that 11m length on the northern side will be glass doors so I'm looking at something in ceiling.
Your bog standard, downward firing speakers will not cut the mustard for directionality, if nothing else, although will make good Atmos speakers. Does anyone utilise any in ceiling rear speakers in a similar setup they could recommend? Budget would be circa $1k for a pair, though hopefully less.
