I'm moving to a new house and need change my 5.1 setup. For the past 7 years or so I've been running an Athena point 5 / Dayton 12 combo (an excellent budget setup I might add) an have really enjoyed it. Due to the configuration of the new house, I will need to ceiling mount the rear surrounds (not in-ceiling). The Athena S.5's aren't ceiling mountable, are are a bit big for that matter. Any suggestions that will fit well with the Athena setup and have a small form factor. I need to keep it under $200 for the pair, less if possible.

I'll check out the super zero's.

Any comments on orb audio or how they compare to the NHT's?

Check out the Polk OWM 3 or 5.
or the Boston Acoustic Soundware.

They both have flexible mounting options.
