Speakers can be any shape, any size and can go any where including in the ceiling and under the floor. Choosing the right speakers for the job can be a hard decision due to getting the right aesthetics and budgetary requirements.
In a dedicated home cinema, speakers being on show is never a problem and some people do prefer to see there speakers when they can some times be one of the largest costs of the theater. But it is becoming more commonplace for speakers to be hidden in a room either behind a screen or in the wall.
The amount of speakers commonly used is a 5.1 system meaning five loudspeakers and a sub-woofer, but it can be 5.2, 7.1, 7.2, or even 9.1 and 9.2. But in commonplace 5.1 is a preferred system and sounds very good. Because of having a sub-woofer the low frequency is taken care so you don’t have to have giant speakers but on the other hand you don’t want to loose your mid frequency by having too small speakers.
