When thinking about where to place your in-wall or in-ceiling speakers, consider your potential listening audience location. Imagine where the majority of listeners will be and try and place the left and right speaker so a convincing sound stage is created. For in-wall speakers, placing at audience ear level is suggested. In-ceiling speakers should give a broad sound pattern to cover where most of the listeners will be. The in-ceiling speakers can be used as in-wall speakers and vice versa. However some in ceiling speakers do require a larger mounting depth and may not fit into in-wall locations. Always double check your mounting dimensions (Height, Width, and Depth) before selecting any in-wall or in-ceiling speaker.
