I'm having an issue with finding a great sounding pair of smallish mains (under 35" tall) and matching cc that can be purchased in the $1,200 range. The problem is the mains will sit in a built in drywall "enclosure"/cubby hole with the following dimensions 35H x 11.5W x 25D. Given the enclosure where the mains would sit has almost no venting out the back, just a wire pass through tunnel, I've been told that I should avoid a rear ported speaker and look for a sealed cabinet. However, I can't imagine a front ported unit would be a problem. My current mains are sealed cabinets so my experience with the "effect" is nonexistant. Please advise! BTW, I had Rockets, Axioms, Paradigms and Monitor Audio Silver on my list of finalists until I realized that each of my main selections in those lines was rear ported and might not work! I'm now considering the MA Bronze series and looking for more quality choices. BTW, I strongly prefer to have an option other than black for the cabinets. Thanks in advance!
