Low Profile On-Wall Main Speakers ?

Hello Everyone - I'm new to these forums and looking for some suggestions. I recently ran speaker wire to my dining room and I'm looking for an Wall mount speaker. Since it's a dining room I would prefer it to be low profile. The room is about 12' x 15' Thank you in advance.

Re: Low Profile On-Wall Main Speakers ?

A couple speakers come to mind right off the bat.

Axiom M2

HTD SB1

What's your budget? How compact do you need them to be (aside from shallow depth)? Are you opposed to in-wall speakers?

The axioms Peter linked are the first ones I thought of that seem to fit the criteria. IIRC, paradigm makes some nice shallow ones as well.

Yes - Paradigm Millenia and Definitive Mythos would also fit the bill.

Re: Low Profile On-Wall Main Speakers ?

To throw some ideas out there.... A guy I know, took some Klipsch Heresy's and built them about 50% into the wall.

Simply made an opening, built some support in there and finished it so the speaker would slide in.

Wouldn't necessarily have to be a Heresy but you could perhaps use various speakers. Later in life, you decide to move.... simply slap a piece of drywall up, mud it and paint the whole room.

Dumb question maybe. Why not in-wall/ceiling?
