Audiophiles love to have their speakers out in the open as this says a lot about their level of dedication when it comes to good sound. If you are serious about it, then why should you hide it? There are instances, however, when speakers need to be out of sight and yet within earshot. This is where architectural speakers come in, and if you are still debating whether they really are appropriate to your situation or not, consider the following scenario.
 
 
Room has an odd shape
 
Because of the underlying assumption that rooms always have 90° angles, speakers have been designed such that they would work best in rectangular rooms. So if you are thinking of converting an odd-shaped space into a home theater or listening room, you can still get the best audio experience by installing in-ceiling or in-wall speakers without compromising sound quality.
 
Room has not enough space
 
A properly installed home theater system would require square footage. If you are into downsized living but would want to have the best audio set-up, in-wall and in-ceiling speakers will do the trick.
 
Large pets that could tip over expensive equipment
 
High quality speakers come at a price so you would want them to last for years. That may not be easy to achieve if you have pets which could knock off things that get easily broken upon impact. Even if there are no threatening pets around, smaller ones can nibble on wiring or leave unsightly scratch marks on your prized audio equipment.
 
Room design calls for crafty concealment
 
Sometimes, the architecture of the room just wouldn't allow any extraneous wiring that could diminish aesthetics. As standard speakers are often installed out there in the open, they could indeed get in the way of a good view. You wouldn't need to put quality sound in the back seat, however, with in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. You can get audiophile-grade sound quality and get your view with top-shelf architectural speakers installed correctly. Precision-engineered architectural speakers wouldn't make listeners feel like the sound comes from the walls or ceilings. If the speakers are truly of high quality, the sound stage would feel like coming from the same level as the display.
