Right now I've got a pair of R15 bookies on stands for the rear, but would like to ditch the stands to free up the floor space back there. I'd like to go with an on-wall option, but want something low profile so the likes of an LSiFX aren't an option.
I've been looking at the OWM5 from Polk and think that's the general direction I want to go, as it looks like a fairly thin speaker and doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I want sound back there for effect, but am not too concerned with it being timbre matched to my fronts or anything like that. To get the best match I'd ideally go with the Magnepan on-wall, but that's overkill for my room and what I really want.
So I have a couple questions:
First off, are there any obvious choices similar to the OWM5 that I'm overlooking?
Secondly, do I have any decent options for running speaker cable up the wall to them? I don't really want to run cable up inside the wall, but if there's an easy way to do that without drilling big holes in the wall I'll consider it but I can't think of how that would work. I also don't want bare speaker wire hanging down from the speakers (in fact that's absolutely not an option). So I'm looking for creative ideas on how to hang these on the wall without the wires looking tacky.
Anyway, just looking for other ideas...
