I had the same problem and ended up with Larsen 6 speakers - well worth trying out.

My philosophy when it comes to buying the right stuff is "ask the right questions to find the answers you need". While speakers sounding good in corners/close to walls are a good question in this regard, it's only part of the equation.

This particular question was one of the main reasons I bought Kii Three - those are specifically designed to work in that kind of environment - but it wasn't the only question. I can recommend Kii based on this criteria, but I can also recommend other active speakers with individual boundary adjustments, passive speakers combined with a parametric eq software or room correction, speakers with that included - like Genelec - or speakers like Klipsch horns designed for corners.
There's just not enough questions asked to give any meaningful recommendation.

- Room size?
- Volume needs?
- Size restrictions?
- Design restrictions?
- Particular sound desires?
- Prize?

If you focus on asking the right questions for your needs, the answers will keep narrowing down.

If you need something that works very well in a corner and size and price are a consideration look at "Cornered Audio" . We use these when we are doing commercial jobs and background music for shops and bars . They make two ranges one for home and one for proper commercial work . Things like the C4 and C5 are fantastic, sound very much like a high quality book shelf speaker .

ATC has a new range called HTS (11/19/40) specifically made for soffit/wall mounting. You probably still want to keep them away from corners though. I've no idea how they fare against their regular speakers.

They look interesting and wonder how well they would work in a conventional (2 channel) system. A good review of them over on AV Forum...

Edit: I'd like too hear the bigger HTS40's on the end of a suitable amp....

E/III's were designed to be placed out and away from the walls behind them, probably 3 feet at a minimum. The other E does not have the rear firing tweeter.

Having owned ATC SCM40Mk2, PMC GB1i and 20.23, ProAc Tablette Ref 8 Signature and Dynaudio Focus 110 and Audience 42, I'd say that all of them, except Dynaudio, works well near the wall. I also did extensive home audition with Spendor D7 and it also worked very well near or even against the wall. ATC, even though it's clearly the biggest of the bunch, works also very well near back wall because of the closed enclosure.

So my recommendation goes to the british manufacturers.

My recently sold Dynaudio had to be 3ft from the wall as they where rear ported, my new Pioneer are up against the wall as they are front ported.

From an Audio Note dealer

Quote:
The AN-E is intended to be used against walls or even in corners if possible, not only does this allow the speaker to ‘drive’ the room very effectively at low frequencies, it also means that what is a reasonably large box can visually ‘disappear’ much better than many smaller speakers that require far more floor space.
