In-ceiling speakers question? Brand, Price, Retailer???

I have my house wired in four rooms for in-ceiling mount speakers. Could anybody recommend a reasonable priced brand or reputable brand that I could install. My purpose is to just have ambient music playing much like the doctors office. So I don't need $300 per speaker Polks. Should I buy the square ones or the round ones?

Any suggestions? Also, where do you recommend buying them from?

Radio Shack?

In reply to: Radio Shack.

Really. I have heard other people say Radio Shack as an option. I just did not imagine I would get even decent quality. What about Best Buy? I have about $300 in gift certificates to there. Could I get a decent set there with volume control? Any recommendations based one their selections?

Local AV shop

Look for a local home theater/av shop they should have a few styles worth looking at. Background music still needs something decent, but there are lots of speakers out there to choose from. Niles, Sonance, Speakercraft are 3 very popular brands which I am pretty sure still offer something starting around 200pr. and up. There are also many cheaper brands out there.
