timely topic as I am getting rid of my von schweikert floor standers and going to in/on wall speakers (80% home theater) - I know I am giving up some sound quality, but it is time to get the speakers off the family room floor...does anyone on here have direct experience with the Paradigm Millennia's? Seems hard to find review on them

I was also looking for reviews, but of the SA-15R-SM. My rear wall does not have room for two rear speakers, but this speaker is supposed to be able to do stereo when wired properly.

My seat is 6 feet from the rear wall, and I am wondering if this speaker will make it sound as if I have two rear speakers.

I really want to turn my 6.1 into a 7.1, if only to make it far simpler to use in the HTPC world.

I have heard them on the show room floor before, and was initially not that impressed. Thinking back, the issue was that they were playing classical music through it, and I could not get a great feel for the speaker.

If I went on-wall again, I think that the Paradigm Millennia's may be the best option as it did have a full sound and could perform to atleast 80hz. I would strongly consider it. Try and listen to it if you can.

I know this thread is a little old but I'm currently in the market for some on-wall speakers and thought maybe I could get this thread going again.

Anyone with recent on-wall speaker setups that would like to share?

I've look at the following so far

EMPtek EW35
Axiom M22
Klipsch Galley G28
Monitor Audio Shadow 60
Paradigm Cinema 330

I prefer to find something I could order online if possible.

Interested in this thread as well. Looking for on-wall options for front l-r speakers that will pair with in-walls rear l-r, normal center and sub. I'm trying to keep the price <$2000.

Well, if you already have a center and in-wall surrounds, hopefully the same brand. So therefore you need on-walls that at least match the center to provide a coherent soundstage.

Looking to spend $2500 for on-wall speakers as well if anyone has experience with any of the brands listed or GoldenEars.

There are quite a few choices, just a matter of you doing some auditions to decide what you like.

I have (discontinued) Energy Flat Panel Speakers (FPS) used for L/R and Center as seen in my avatar. On page 4 of this thread, you can see some close up photos.
They really don't go very deep, and I use 2 home made subwoofers which really fill in the in the bottom end!! So overall, I am very happy with what I have right now, and I have another system waiting to replace it, but it will continue to wait until the time is right.
You absolutely need a sub for movies (and music) in my opinion.
I find I have to raise the center channel audio trim on the receiver quite a bit.
I did, however, only pay $100 ea for them.

HT: Yamaha RX-V565 | 3 X Energy Take FPS, 2 X VS Surround, 2 X Take LCR | DIY Subs: SDX12 APR15 & TRIO12 Dual APR 12's | 47" LCD

Music: Yamaha RX-V863 | 2 X Energy RC-70 | MA RXw12 Sub

Bathroom: 2 X Energy Take LCR

Car: Sony Xplod HU, Xplod 6X9s, Kenwood 4"s, Alpine 12" Type-S, Rockford Amp,...
