In-wall Speaker News

In the modern world of home theater and custom installation the concept of in-wall speakers sells better than on-wall speakers, bookshelf speakers or reference level floorstanding speakers. In-wall speakers bring music to places that used to not be able to have sound. In-wall speakers allow for home theater systems to expand to 7.1 or 9.1 or even 9.2 surround systems without looking like a recording studio.

For reviews of the best in in-wall speakers from brands like Paradigm, Bowers & Wilkins, Noble Fidelity, PSB, Wisdom Audio and many others read the HomeTheaterReview.com In-wall Speaker Review Archive.
