As far as thin, wall mount speakers go the KEF T305 are standard for that price point. But, you will get much more speaker (and better sound) for your money if you can go with standard bookshelf...

Repair vintage components in So Cal

Anyone have recommendations for shops in So Cal (LA or OC preferred) that repair older/vintage amps, receivers, etc?

(Have an older Hitachi AI-600 amp that I'd like to have looked at.)

Thanks!!

Three Q300's LCR across the front is the better option.

If you move the BS22s to surround duty you will have a very good bang-for-the-buck system!

If your primary listening is going to be HT/surround then I would lean towards the Ascend 340's - I think that setup has an advantage re the center speaker matching the LR mains.

Set the crossover for the KEF eggs at 100hz and you'll likely notice a better sound. (Most avr's will let you set the surround crossover separately from the center and mains.)

I'd recommend a 3rd Q100 as a center.

And as someone else alluded to ... If it makes sense in your room/space you can use the left over Q100 as a back speaker in a 6.1 setup.
