Looking for bookshelf speakers (identical LCR) that actually go on a bookshelf as part of a wall unit. Would I need horn tweeters? Large room, floorstanding speakers not an option.
After reading other posts on this forum, seems like if on a bookshelf, then sealed or ported would be the way to go, however it seems that even some front ported speakers it is recommended to not put on bookshelf, but on stands. So, if I use a rear ported speaker it may still be ok (as long as 2 inches behind speaker)? I will be using a subwoofer. Some speakers use compression tweeters others dome tweeters with the horns. Strongly considering these two for now.
HSU HB-1 MK2 $159 each
JBL Studio 230 $399 pair
Other speakers I have read good reviews on with non-horn tweeters, but front ported would be Infinity Primus P163, Polk tsx220, Wave Crest HVL-1,...for mainly movies, tv, very little music. Bic Acoustech FH-65b are two inches taller than the HB-1 MK2 and will not fit.
