Looking to replace my cheap, underwhelming surround speakers with something a little better. Not looking to spend a ton and would prefer something relatively small (think small bookshelf, not "Bose Cube small"). My main seating position is roughly 6 feet from each surround and the rest of my system is below.
LR: Elac F5
C: Elac C5s
Sub: Bic F12
Surrounds: to be replaced
The room has changed a little, but speaker and seating locations are the same. I’d be mounting these fairly low as I’ll soon be adding 2 atmos speakers in the ceiling (Thinking Polk MC60).
Micca MB42X: $119 CAD + wall mounts
Elac B4: $202 CAD + price for wall mounts: Perhaps a better tone match for the LCR?
Elac OW4.2: $304 - no wall mounting required: I like the low profile, wall-mountability and similarity to existing LCR, but am not sure the extra cost is worth it or if the wall mounting will limit placement options.
Given what I already have is it worth it to pay a little more for the B4’s or OW4.2’s or would I even notice the difference from something cheaper like the Miccas? Thanks for any advice you can give.
