The speakers that we recommend are the "Installer Select" speakers above. The 3 top brands that we like the most based on value/performance trade offs are InwallTech™, MAS Audio and ArchiTech. You'll see these in surround sound kits, whole house audio kits and in our personal shopping areas. You'll read that we call these great "bang for the buck" type equipment. Typically pick a round speaker for a ceiling mount application. We tend to see round objects in the ceiling like light fixtures. On walls we usually see things rectangular like pictures, mirrors and window shapes.
