Looking for budget speakers as only for occasional movie watching, about 1.5m behind couch. WAF wants unobtrusive rears! Directional tweeters required I reckon

Budget of $300, anyone heard of the Earthquake brand circa $200 a pair?

Suggest you look at Atmos otr DTS:X and go from there re positioning

I have used Polk V60 in-ceiling speakers (6.5”) for all my effects speakers. They have adjustable tweeters and do an adequate job in my setup. HN has them for $144 each at the moment but I’m sure I paid less than that because I bought six. Paintable grills as well for maximum WAF.
