Hi
My home is under construction and im having the electrician prewire the rears, I was going to ask him to put some in wall wire to wall plates for the front L and R. Is there any disadvantage to doing this over having cables direct from speaker to amp resting on the floor?

The only disadvantage is that you're making a commitment of where the speakers are going to be. Aside from that, from an aesthetic perspective there aren't any negatives.

I went all the way with in-wall speakers, and I'm glad I did.

thanks, yeah the room shape restricts placement so its pretty set to location. I was interested to see if adding another faceplate and wire connection would distract from quality

If the connections to the back/front of the wall-plate are bad, it's something easily fixed with a screwdriver and 5 minutes of your time. The only non-trivial problem would be if there was somehow a problem with the in-wall speaker wire, which is something you can test before you close up the wall.
