I suggest that you look at the Gallo Acoustics Classico speakers, which are really excellent.
The main speakers, the CL-3, are only 7.3 inches wide, and are really amazing speakers. The power and bass they put out is extremely hard to believe for their size.
They have an actual footprint 11 inches deep, but they project out slightly in front a bit further up. It looks perfect for your locations in the pictures.
I suggest that you read the review of this system at avguide.com, which uses a pair of CL-3 speakers and a pair of CL-2 speakers, and their matching Center.
You can get the system for around $3000 (not including the Gallo sub,which I do not recommend). Actually, you could just use four of the CL-2 speakers and the Center since you already have the subwoofer. Then the cost would be $800 less.
You can try them in your home for 60 DAYS FREE!
They will pay shipping both ways and refund your money, so you are not out one penny if you don't love them.
But once you hear them , you won't want to turn them loose...lol.
I guess that's why they can make such a crazy offer; they probably don't spend much on return shipping.
This system is so much better than anything B & W has for under $5000 that the comparison is ridiculous.
These are only sold direct from Gallo, and you save a LOT of money due to no dealer markup.
BTW- Your current receiver will drive them very nicely, as you will see when you try them. They are a much easier load to drive than many comparable speakers.
