I guess they are indeed under the radar:)

I am always interested in close to wall speakers, hence my owning Allison one, three and fours through the years since most women ( certainly my wife) dont want a speaker in the middle of the room or at least one third of the length of the room, according to the Cardas rule - so, looking at Agon forums, Audio asylum forums, the constant speaker mentioned was the North Creek Kitty Kat. But it is difficult to get a handle on why they work close to the wall as they have never been reviewed by an audio publication and I do not understand the physics. So I wanted owners/users' input. I want to use them in my office where they have to be inconspicuous, against the wall. But I don't want to sacrifice sonics.
Apparently the designer, George Short, is very well thought of, judging from comments on Agon and AA, but he says he's never pursued a review and relies on customer on-line comments. He seems very low
Key, which in many ways is refreshing, especially when you consider the shilling that goes on by some retailers/manufacturers, whom, as a reviewer, you are probably very familiar with. Everybody is. They post ad nauseam about their own products, not to answer technical questions, which is proper, but to sell.........which I deplore. Anyway, to come back to my OP,
I am surprised that that are so few choices of close to wall speakers, hence my post, looking for advice from a huge number of audphiles. But I didn't entitle it "which speakers....?" As this has been done so often.
