    Looking for ON Wall speakers

    I now have Revel Speakers for my three fronts.
    20 Years ago, I installed three in wall Thiel speakers for my back and surround. This was way before even 5.1 Dolby sound was released. Now, I have much better fronts, a great amp for the back and, of course, Blu Ray sound. I need to upgrade my rears and surround. I also feel that ON wall sounds better than In wall. So I am asking if anyone has advice.

    My dealer recommended two:
    Gold FX | Monitor Audio

    and

    Any advice, suggestions, whatever. You can see my whole system below. Please feel free to mention brands or models

    If you plan on keeping the Revels, and really why would you not, why not keep it in the family?

    There's always the Revel Performa3 S206. I haven't heard them but I have to think that they don't suck.

    I love Revel, but hate two way speakers. I think they are dipoles. I originally had dipoles and hated them. They just do not work in my room!

    What about using the M105s? I bet you can find wall brackets for them.

    Ask your dealer.
