    Hey folks.. im looking for some budget speakers that can be mounted on the wall. They will be powered by an Onkyo tx910 stereo receiver and in a room thats about 22x14. Budget is set at $150 firm for speakers, brackets and shipping. I was searching ebay and came across a dealer selling nib polk atrium 45's for $119.
    These will basically just be used for background music while shooting pool, not critical listening, so im willing to skip the auditioning portion and just buy based on recommendations and looks. So.. what would you guys recommend?

    They will sound thin without help in the bass area. They only have 4 1/2 inch woofers. The 55s carry the 5 1/4 inch woofer and would be a better stand alone model.

    If size or space isn't a huge factor the RT 25i or 28i are great bookshelf models that have mounting tabs on the back of the speaker port. I have a set of 25s that I have used for years. They can be had for around the same $ as the indoor/outdoor models you are looking at.
