Low-to-mid priced surround speakers...?

I'm building a new house with a dedicated theater and am using Klipsch S-10's for surrounds and KS-14's for rear surrounds. But I've also got two 5.1 systems in other rooms and need a pair of decent surrounds. Like them to be relatively small and able to be mounted on a wall bracket for positioning. Somewhere in the $200 dollar range, perhaps.

Any recommendations as to the best bang for the buck?

The Wave Crest Audio HVL-1 might be worth considering. They offer a lot of value. At one time you could use the discount code jman at checkout and get 15% off. That might still be valid.

If you take yourself too seriously expect me to do the exact opposite

Thanks, but they're a little too big. Need something smaller. It's just for surrounds, so I don't need something awesome, but would like to get the most bang for the buck I can in a small package.

What about something like the Avantone MixCube? It's pretty small, and it should be very accurate; they're used to mix in a studio environment.

Thanks. Not quite what I'm looking for for surrounds. But we're getting closer!

How about the NHT SuperZero 2.1..........9 x 5 x 5 inches and very accurate for $200/pair?
