I am running the 4.2 Evid for the rear surround (7.1) choice in my system.
This is the 6.2 and they run around 300 per pair. Good efficency and they sound great!
Of course the best choice is two more DIY EW to match the rest

I've actually given a little thought to trying the HSU in-walls as the wides in a 9.2 with my 4Pi's as the mains. $299 for the pair.

I am curious. With all those who have built horn/waveguide based mains, be that Geddes, Econowave, QSC, etc, what are you guys using for surrounds?
I have my eye on QSC ADS52. I haven't read anything about them though.

For music or home theater? If for multi-channel music, then I'd try to match the front speakers as closely as possible.
For home theater, just run whatever sounds good. I've used a cheap pair of Sony speakers for awhile now. My long term plans are to build something nice. But in my experience, you don't need anything fancy.
I have found though, that I prefer directional speakers. I don't like soft surround that just barely fills in the rear sound. I like rear speakers that really provide excitement from the sides/back with a bit of directionality. I wasn't able to get that with dipoles which made it sound like sounds were coming from "just somewhere" behind me.

Well, 135mm is only ~5.5", which isn't a deal killer but it means the total speaker depth is likely to be >8" in all practicality. I'd say that I'd like to keep to that or less.
