You are going to laugh but have you considered outdoor speakers instead?I want to get new rear surround speakers. I can't make up my mind on what though. In wall or on wall, or something that can be mounted to the wall (goldenear supersat). Problem is one wall is 2x3 and one is 2x4. I could make some spacers, like an angled frame that directs it more towards the listener but also gets me the clearance for the 2x3 wall.
My fear is that I'll get an anemic surround speaker. These 5.25 an 4 inch speakers don't impress me. I'd like response to 80hz, something that can be powered by a denon x4000, and won't struggle when being pushed.
The rslw26 caught my eye. 84$ a piece. I know there's some 8" in walls around too. Fluance has some on walls but I don't trust them really. Martin Logan fresca could work if I could find used ones. I want a speaker that can take being used as a main. Any cheap in walls around that people are liking as mains?
My big concern is something that can save space over a bookshelf speaker on a stand
They come with brackets and some decent ones can be had for cheap at Best Buy with free returns.
My daughter has these outdoors and they play loud and clean with decent bass sitting 35 feet away.
