EDIT: I now have 35x10x10 to work with. 1.2 cu.ft. per side.

Need some suggestions for my Cousins living room speakers. The internal volume would be about 1.2 cu.ft. when using 3/4 wood. These will be ON-WALL, not in-wall like the title suggest. "35"H x 10"W x 10"D

He's received permission to build speakers into fake pillars. He's not allowed to do anything else. hahah smile.gif

So, I need help figuring out what type of speaker to go with. They listen to POP and watch a few movies.
Subwoofer won't be a problem.

Since the speakers are unfortunately going to be located ABOVE ear height, I'm thinking either a line array or a waveguide speaker of some type?

We CANNOT build the speakers anywhere but in the red box located in the pic below. Can't go below (furniture & firewall there) and can't go deeper (wall framing).

Btw, normal ear height is 6-10" inches BELOW the bottom of the speakers. frown.gif

I can modify my nova monitor design for those exact dimensions and placement if you're interested.

Thanks, Jay. I really appreciate the offer!
I'm looking for something with a bit more punch/SPL right now. This is a HUGE, open room these are going into.

I can now have 35 x 10 x 10 which gives me 1.2 cu.ft. to work with.

Any speaker not specifically designed for that placement is going to have lots of issues. I don't think you're going to get to many recommendations. I can come up with something custom for you, again up to you.

If I end up going with a simple two way, I'll build this one (link below) since I already have all the drivers & in-wall designed crossover components.

But I really want something with higher sensitivity and bass capability.
Right now I'm thinking about an upside down Econowave.

Besides the on wall placement, your listening axis is going to create a null in the vertical plane if the speaker is designed for you to be on axis with the tweeter. Angling the speakers would work, otherwise the xover needs to be designed on the intended axis.
