In my house, I have a room that is basically my "theater." It's nowhere near as cool as it sounds. I do a lot of front of house mixing on the weekends and I see a lot of flown speakers in buildings where the system is permanently installed. It's great because you don't have to lose floor space or sacrifice speaker placement for what's aesthetically pleasing. Also, the speakers aren't blocked by people and likewise aren't blown away from high volume next to their ears. What I'm wondering is if there are speakers in the home audio realm that are designed to be hung and aimed like a concert speaker. It's hard to google such a term so I'm coming to you guys. I've tried audio-centric forums before and they're not that helpful because it's a bunch of old farts with old gear. Not that that's a bad thing, just doesn't work for my needs.
I also could just screw in eye hooks to bookshelf sized speakers and be done with it but it feels sacrilegious to drill into new stuff and not really designed to be hung like that.
