Passive stereo speakers (kitchen/multiroom) up to 300-350 USD IQAudio

Hi there,

I decided to build my Multiroom system with Raspberry PIs and IQAudio Amps (Kitchen, Bathroom, Bedroom).

I'm now looking for suitable, best sounding on-wall speakers (stereo) up to 300/350$ per pair. Ideally they would have a form factor like these: https://www.canton.de/en/hifi/gle-series/gle-416-onwall - not too much depth.

Does anyone have a suggestion what to test or - as it's not a diy topic - can anyone point me to a good forum to get advice? The current speakers I have are Nubert Nubox (5.1) and KEF X300, I especially like the sound of the KEF (also M200 headphones).

I'm based in Europe. Thank you very much, I appreciate your help.

You say ideally very narrow. Is this a nice to have, or a need to have. Some great speakers at 350 price range, but that narrow is tough. You'd do it easier with wireless speakers

It wouldn't be a typical hifi solution. I appreciate space concerns but that usually comes at detriment to audio quality.

I appreciate it doesn't answer your question but have you considered Kef Eggs?

I don't want to use readily available wireless speakers, it's unnecessarily expensive
for many rooms and usually the quality is not that good.

"As narrow as possible" is a broad definition, I don't want to stick to particular dimensions
but it's hard to find the right options. I thought there might be smaller/wider speakers
that are sufficient for the purpose (radio streams, background music).

I'd suggest looking at installation speakers. Unfortunately I don't know anything about this. Here's a link

The closest I can think of are JBL control 1, they come with brackets and are relatively tidy

I like my setup, it's in my signature, but I'm not as limited with space so they are not right up against wall, or as narrow front to back as you may require
