If you’ve ever seen in-ceiling speakers installed in a house, you’ll know how seamless and modern they can be. Are they right for your own home setup, though? That’ll depend on a few factors. Here are the answers to the questions we’re most commonly asked about in-ceiling speakers.
Before choosing floor speakers, the first thing to consider is the room you are putting them in. If you have an intimate space, you can probably manage with 8 inch speakers linked to an amplifier in the 25 watt range. For example, the Wharfedale Atlantic AT-200-HG would be perfect for a bedroom.

In the 1980s, the fashion for large, floor-standing speakers that
dominated the living room began to wane among Hi-Fi owners. The idea of a
compact speaker system was not a new one, but it took technological
advances in the 60s and 70s before it was possible to make a small,
affordable speaker that had the frequency range of the bigger cabinets
with their 15 inch woofers and resonating chambers. The age of the
bookshelf speaker had arrived.
