How small a room? I am still a fan of the Maggie 1.6's, but they do have a tall profile.

I have Quad ESL 63's in a medium-size room, and found I could "tame" the back wave effectively by mounting a DIY imitation of RPG's Omniffusor about 2' behind the speakers. I suspect Argent Room Lenses, of which I also have DIY clones, would do well there too, especially if you made them shorter and with more tubes, if necessary, to match the width and height of the speakers. With suitable room treatment, planars can work in a smallish room, but the back wave must be dealt with somehow, in my experience.
