Suggestions for small rear/back (7.1) surrounds to match Klipsch RP

I have been looking to replace my rear (back) surrounds in a 7.1.4 which are currently an anemic pair of bose 161s. The rest of the setup is Klipsch RP ( 280F , 450C, 240S, 140SA).

The space for these is REALLY small. The bose 161s vertically mounted barely fit the bill. I'll try to get some pics / dims up when I get back to it.

I've looked at RP-240Ds as they look close to the same dimensions but I cant find anywhere to audition them.

I've also looked at ML Motion 2i and Airmotiv E1 (slim) but the ribbons may be too distinct with all the other horns in the room. Although I did get a quick audition in-store for ML-Motion 2i just not in direct comparison with Klipsch RP.

Just get the RP-240s if they fit. You already know you like how the other RP speakers sound. Or buy them from Crutchfield with their $10 return charge and 60 day trial period.

Klipsch RF-62II, RC-500, RS-400, SVS PC12+,
Def Tech SC8000
Onkyo RZ820
Roku Ultra, Apple TV, Sharp 70" Quattron
