My parents are looking at getting a 5.1 speaker setup for their new place. I originally had them looking at the QS surrounds, but there is only one wall to side mount on. The side for the other rear is open to another room. There is the ceiling bracket as an option, but my mom doesn't want that hanging from the ceiling.
They are currently thinking of getting in ceiling speakers to use as surrounds. I told them I don't think they'll get good surround from speakers in the ceiling, and would probably be better off with small HTIB size sattelites for the rears if it came to that.
Keep in mind they aren't like most of us on here as far as good quality sound goes. Certainly nowhere near audiophiles.
With that being said, I wanted to get other people's thoughts.
Either A) In ceilings, B) small surround satelites, or C) some other option.
I also want to get to a speaker store with them, so they can do some listening with some of their music. If they listen to good speakers and not so good ones and can't tell a difference, it might be that a HTIB works best for them, although it pains me to guide them in that direction.
