    I use 3 of these as the front left/right/center speakers mounted on the wall around my 55" HDTV. It was the long rectangular shape that I wanted aesthetically as well as the relatively light weight - and these fit the bill. Looks nice in black around the TV and performs well. They weren't on the floor at the local Best Buy, so I took a chance ordering them unseen. What readers need to know is that the online photo does not do them justice. The back of these speakers is flat-backed in the center (enough to give them stability when mounted on the wall) but the ends are angled up to hide speaker wires. Very versatile. If I could change one thing I would say make them flatter so that they were flush with the HDTV (like the more expensive KEF series). I paired these with Polk OM3 rear speakers and Polk PSW111 subwoofer. Sweet setup.

    perfect for ATMOS/DTS:X speakers

    I currently cannot do in-ceiling speakers for ATMOS/DTS:X so I chose to use these for on-ceiling mounted speakers and they work incredibly good. I have four mounted on the ceiling in the HT room 7.1.4 and two mounted on the ceiling in the bedroom 5.1.2 these speakers have dual 4.5" drivers and that makes the difference in the quality of the midrange and the level of unstrained volume you can get from these speakers. make sure you understand that they are sold as single speakers and if you needed a pair you must order two.

    I use a pair of OWM 5 as front heights to supplement my B&W 700 series based 7.2.4 Auro 3D system. It sounds great crossovered at 80 Hz. Designed for use as center speaker it delivers dispersed sound making it a great non-localized height speakers. Its low profile shape and off-white color makes it non-obtrusive for living room applications.

    L/R - Yes; L/C/R - Not so much

    Purchased one as a center channel "upgrade" and to test for L/R. My Polk CS10 blew the OWM5s AWAY as a center, but the OWM5 were MUCH nicer than my Polk T15 Bookshelf speakers. So, I purchased a 2nd OWM5 and upgraded the L/R instead of the center. Works very nicely with the Polk OWM3 rears.

    These speakers are perfect for surround sound and they have multiple mounting options and do not stand off of the wall very much. Great sound from these speakers on my back wall, would also work well for side rear speakers in a 7.2 set up. Would highly recommend over most rear speakers do to their size, the great sound quality and the flexibility in mounting options.

    These guys sound warm, get plenty loud, and have a ton of mounting options. Bass response isn't great (we're talking small drivers here) but I paired mine with a small Polk sub to get a nice, even sound. Highly recommend -- Especially for the price. Great value!

    These speaker work great for rear surrounds in my theater room. Love the versatility with the mounting options and they do not stick out from the wall too far like some bookshelf style speakers do. Sound is clear and crisp with good range.

    I use these in my 7.1 system for sides and back, I was really amazed and the sound quality. I use an oppo blue ray and Integra receiver it is sharp and clear.
