Need help selecting 4 small surrounds (<10” height) mounted high on walls

Living room: 18’ Length x 13’ width x 9’3” height
Pre-wired to height of 8’9” (some slack to mount a little lower if needed)
Current equipment: Receiver: Denon x4300h, Fronts: Kef q100, Center: BA Micro 100c (I know, I know), SVS PB12
Budget: planning <$500/pair but can go over if needed
Use: music and movies.
Thoughts: have read a lot of good stuff on monitor audio but more about their higher end speakers, not sure how good the Radius 90 are. NHT C1 also seem good but unclear how they compare to superzero. Thanks in advance. If I missed any, please let me know.

Considering (listed in increasing height– wife prefers smaller (<=10”)):
KLH Ames: 300/pair; 7.5"Hx 4.8"W x 6"D
Monitor audio Radius 90: 550/pair; 7.8"H x 4.9"W x 6.6"D

Definitive tech D7: 569/pair; 9.9"Hx 5.5"W x 9"D
Wharfedale Diamond 11.0: 280/pair; 10"Hx 6.1"W x 6.9"D
Q acoustics 3010i: 226/pair; 10"H x 9.9"D x 5.9"

Phase 2 (LCR): slimmer towers and new center (maybe xmas/superbowl). Currently have Kef q100 bookshelves but too big to hang per wife.

I'd get the PSBs with $10/box returns from Crutchfield if not happy but I doubt you'd be disappointed.

No need to spend a fortune on surrounds.

PSB is a first rate speaker company.

Thanks gajCA for the reply. would you recommend those over the NHT or the qacoustics? I know you had mentioned the 3010i before.
Appreciate your help

The returns on the 3010i aren't as favorable but they do come in more finishes, and have custom wall brackets for them so that is an advantage, for sure.

For surround duties they would certainly work well I would think.
