Satellite speaker recommendations pic

I need help picking rear satellite speakers for our new home. I plan on putting the speakers at the intersection of my wall and ceiling in front of our ceiling beams. I have 9" of height to work with. I would like a speaker that gets down to 60hz and want to spend around $200 for the pair. I am open to buying pre-owned speakers.

Sats do not tend to go down to 60 hz -- even some boolshelf speakers have trouble with that.

Look at the NHT SuperZero -- sold each

I would not hold my breath on that -- there is no -3 db given.

You can always test the speakers and see if you like the sound -- for small speakers a sub is needed.

You can google reviews...I heard the same tweeter in the Concept 20s in my house and they are excellent.

9.2" high, $130/pair, play down to about 70hz which is very good for the size.

Brackets designed specifically for those will set you back $50/pair.
