One of the most treasured items for many homeowners is a quality home entertainment center. Like bathroom and kitchen remodels, it's easy to understand how a home entertainment center directly improves your home lifestyle. Of course, no home entertainment center would be complete without a superb sound system. Often, the way in which you decide to mount your speakers can be just as important to your home entertainment room as the quality of the speakers themselves. Technological advancements allow you to make your home near theater quality without overpowering your room.
Speaker Wall Mounts
Speaker wall mounts are a simple way to reclaim valuable floor space in your home. They don't require the same technical skill for installation, but if you're thinking of taking the project on you'll still need some basic skills and knowledge. Many manufacturers provide installation manuals for their products, but getting outside your comfort zone, can be an enormous headache waiting to happen. Wall-mounted speakers tend to be smaller in size, but they still pack all the punch you need. The ability to angle the speakers in any direction also gives homeowners the ability to install the speakers anywhere on their walls without sacrificing sound quality.
In-Ceiling and In-Wall Speaker Mounts
Everybody wants a high-performance home entertainment system, but almost nobody wants a bunch of bulky, electrical equipment clogging up their rooms and décor. In-ceiling and in-wall speaker mounts basically use ceiling and wall cavities as speaker cabinets. They use the same technology as traditional speakers. The difference is in the installation. The most important decision to make when installing these speakers is where you want to put them, and this decision is usually a function of their intended use. In-wall speakers, for example, are typically best for home entertainment centers where the sound is designed to come from one source. If you like to listen to music while you're cleaning your kitchen, on the other hand, a discreet in-ceiling speaker may be just the ticket.

Hidden Speaker Mounts
In-wall speakers can be artfully camouflaged to match your home décor and blend in with its surroundings. Still, for truly stunning sound systems that won't infringe on your room's look and will wow your guests, hidden speakers placed inside your walls is the way to go.
Powerful transducers can transmit high-quality sound through any solid material, turning your wall into the speaker itself. When you go to the movie theater, you probably notice you don't see speakers transmitting sound; it's the same technology. Knocking a hole in the wall to install the sound system isn't that complicated, and now that the technology's out there, it doesn't cost an arm and a leg more than in-wall speakers. Many homeowners simply don't install hidden speakers because they don't want to pay more for what they consider a superfluous luxury. On the other hand, if the idea is appealing, you don't need to mortgage the house to install hidden speakers.
