front height speakers - recommendation

French_guyFrench_guy Posts: 230
Hi
Looking for front height speakers that are not too bulky, but still provide good (at least decent) sound effect?
I was thinking about the OWM3...Is this a good choice? Any other recommendations?
Thanks

    Just as a thought, you could get one of those speakers that sits on top of your mains and reflects off the ceiling, I know Klipsch and SVS both make a set of those. If those would work, I’d look at the SVS option.

    Main system: Technics SL3200, Shure M97xE, Lafayette LR1100 for tuner, Hagerman Audio Labs Bugle 2 phono stage, NAD C352 integrated, Boston Acoustics VR 2, Boston PV500, generic ICs, and BJC Belden speaker cables.

    Desktop: Dell Precision 690 running iTunes, Yamaha RX-v665, Monitor Audio R90s, Velodyne VA-907, generic ICs and speaker cables.
    I've always thought the goal of high-end audio was not to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Turn that darn music down' but to have your neighbors bang on the wall and say, 'Tell your friends to go home and you can practice later this week'.

    In ceiling are a great option if you can swing it. Otherwise, the older M3s or M5s that are wedge shaped are MUCH better speakers than the OWM3s and the shape would be ideal. Obviously you will have to look on eBay and be patient...

    Yes. Check eBay. Lots available. Make sure they have the brackets. I used them for my patio for years. Nice sound for the money with solid bass unlike the ones ur lookin at.

    Exactly! That’s a good clean pair and sound SO much better than the newer thinner ones. I don’t know why they don’t go back to making them as atmos speakers...
