Are the in-cabinet speakers meant to set on a shelf? I don't see any other mounting provisions.

Because of their weight, they need to be sitting on a shelf of some sort and mounted flush with the wall.

There is a lip all the way around the front, so they can't sit completely even with the floor. The support shelf has to be at least a couple inches up.

Definitely in-cabinet speakers for those holes, M60's look like they might fi, if not in-cab M22's will fit nicely and the center would need to be an in-cab VP150(size?) or IMO, better yet an incab vertical M2 smile

Ken, I was thinking that the mains are pretty close together as well. But like you said, what can you do...

When they're that close, is even a center channel necessary?

Yeah, I agree, way too close for decent separation at normal viewing distances. He could get good stereo separation if he sits really close to that monitor, so let's hope it's 1080p.

Later on, adding an extra pair of "stereo wide" speakers outboard to the holes would help a lot in broadening the stereo image.

Back from business trip, here are the holes dimentions:

15.25 deep (i can remove the drywall to add another 0.5inch)
8.75 wide (again i can remove the drywall on each side to ad 1.0inch)
38.25 height (i can remove the drywall and the upper 2x4 structure to accomodate the M60 in cab)

so i think that my final conclusion is that i will go with the M60 in cab, the VP150 in/on wall, the QS8 and the EP 500.

I will probably get a set of M3 outdoor at the same time.

thanks you all for your help!

I think you'll be very happy with your choice. Post some pics when you're done! It's not often that we get to see a in cab installation smile
