Hi There,

We are moving into a new apartment and it would help to have a few suggestions please!

We (current residence) have the home theatre setup with our rear speakers setup mounted at the top of the wall directly to the left and right of the couch, the wires are in the wall and under the floor so everything works quite well.

The apartment we are moving into doesnt have the ability to wire things in the same way. It has white painted jib on top of concret for walls, but has a small drop celling (5-6 inchs). The TV/Enterainment unit will sit in front of one of these walls - i have included a pic of the general layout.

Our rear speakers are not white and would seem like they are too big to work in the new room - and i dont think they could be mounted the same way as on the left of the couch is a height sliding door to the deck, and on the right is the kitchen (tho the ceiling is slightly lower than the main living area, providing a little drop down), so im looking for some white, small rear speakers plus some suggestions on how to mount them... (droped down the ceiling?).

Thanks!

Simon

In ceiling speakers can be good especially if you can provide a sealed cavity behind them. They typcially require around 80mm of clearance behind, what does your drop ceiling provide. Also a drop ceiling may not allow you to install a rear seal. Other than that a pair of small jewel speakers like those that come with Home theatre in a box kits may satisfy movie requirements.
