Alright, I've decided to buy a pair of speakers for the rear channel of my surround receiver. They must be in wall as the rear of our den is the kitchen and there are no good stands or wire routing options. Also, I'm looking to spend $100 or less as the speakers will likely be staying with the house. I guess what I am saying is I'm set on in wall and $100 or less, so don't tell me how great the $120 bookshelf speakers are. What do you audiophiles out there think are the best speakers meeting my criteria? They will be used for video games, movies, tv, and the occasional music listening and connected to a sony receiver.

I bought a brand new pair of M&S WG 150W speakers on ebay around six weeks ago for less than $50 shipped. The WG stands for their waveguide tweeter. They sold(the company is now out of business...or so I've been told) in the $220-$230 range at every place I've seen on the internet. They're eye-catching but I had never heard of the company before so I did some research before I placed a bid on them. All of the reviews were glowing so I decided to bite the bullet.

I've yet to install them but I auditioned them free-air in my main HT system with various types of music. I've been an audio enthusiast for over 25 years and I have to say these M&S in-walls impressed me.The tweeter is detailed yet smooth. The midrange is prominent but not overdone.

I got a great deal as I see them selling on ebay for substantially more than I paid for them. They also have two WG ceiling speakers if you decide to go that route.

Here's the ceiling model(right in your price range): rs_Subwoofers?hash=item300277603887&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C 240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

Here's one of the in-wall models..I have the larger 8" mid: akers_Subwoofers?hash=item350117453670&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=72%3A1205%7C66%3A2%7C65%3A12%7C39%3A1%7C 240%3A1318%7C301%3A1%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A50

And here it again on Amazon for only $122 shipped:
