ES10 is gimped by the small 4" woofer, ok as a surround in small systems but not worth much otherwise.
810 is a little better but the 5" woofer is still on the small side. It does have a much better tweeter and is well suited as a surround speaker.
S36 is a lot older but is closer to being a true full range speaker with the 6" driver and a solid 1" tweeter. However it is in a composite cab that is not quite ideal.
At similar prices I would pick the 810, but the S36 should be cheaper than either as they are probably used, and the 810 should be quite a bit more expensive.
If you are looking for a capable wall mount JBL then I would hunt down some L820's.
If you just need something simple for surround duty then you might be able to find a pair of E10's on the cheap. Basically the same speaker as the ES10 and I've seen used pairs sell for $50-100.
