    Small but strong speakers?

    We have a classroom in the school with limited wall mounting space, and no possibility of mounting on the ceiling as its about 20ft high, but we need to get a set of speakers that will fit.

    The space is 13cm tall. Anyone know of any speakers that would be suitable? The classroom isn't very big - about 4.5m square.

    A bit too wide (mounted landscape) but might, with the wall brackets, fit...

    Control 1

    Does it have a false ceiling?

    Thought about these? NuVo 40W In-Wall Amplifier & 2x Wall Speakers NVWA40W , NV-WA40UK - Primary ICT for Primary Schools, Nursery, Secondary & Education

    ^^^ Ignore the supplier (I have no knowledge of them... they had the nicest picture I could find). I used to use these speakers everywhere and most suppliers can get them via Steljes.

    Could you not mount them to the ceiling and angle them into the room?

    Too big - they're 160mm.

    Nope, not allowed to screw things into the ceiling.

    How do you only have 13cm of wall space if the ceiling is 6m high? any photos?

    What about mounting them to the rear or side walls with a room of that size you wouldn't notice the difference?

    Or put blocks of wood on the wall to bring the speakers forward, clear of obstructions?

    SPEAKERS, 30W WITH REMOTE VOLUME - 1050001 - SAHARA These are 172mm tall but have brackets and a remote as I'd half written this post before realizing my mistake, I'm still posting it!

    BTW these are great speakers for £40 and can be heard through a noisy classroom. The speech quality is great (esp for ropey old vhs english videos)

    There is more space, but I'm not allowed to use it it has been decreed it would be ugly to use it...

    Again, not allowed to, as it would not be pretty enough...

    Could you use a sound bar underneath the whiteboard?

    Example: I'm not endorsing this product! Trevi SB-8300W 2.1 Speaker Bar Sound Bar Projector 40W: Amazon.co.uk: Electronics

    EDIT: the one above has a seperate sub which you don't want this is more like what I was suggesting. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Yamaha-YAS10...pd_sim_recht_1

    Sound bars look ideal. I'll have a look at more - the problem with that second one is that it only has optical and coax digital inputs, no analogue.
