Question Small rear speakers/rear center (Mission?)

Ok, I need a small speaker or speakers for rear surround use. They have to fit above my window which give me 25CM max but preferably less so that I can actually get the mount on if they are keyhole mount

The two I am looking at currently are:

Mission M7C1

or

MISSION M3DSi

I'm leaning towards the latter if I can fit them (they are 23cm high and not sure where the keyhole is and how much movement I will have to fit it.)

What other options are there or does anyone have any experience with either of these?

The rest of the speakers are Mourdant Short MS25i Pearl Edition fronts and MS20i Pearls at the surround and a MS Center (can't remember the model at the moment). I currently have a Boston Acoustics rear surround but its too big and heavy to mount over the window!

Oh yeah, and budget is 150 max! I still need to get stands for the surround speakers too and some more cable if I get a pair of rear surrounds for the 7.1 (I have the cable for the single in 6.1)

Here is a (poor quality) image of the area the speakers are going. I'll try to get a better image when I have my digital camera here and not just a poor quality mobile camera

What about a B&W VM1? I've actually got the Mission 7 series rears like your second link, and they're very good, but quite tall - the B&Ws are only about 12cm x 60cm x 12cm (height, width, depth).

Nice but too expensive if I want two. The Missions in my second link are the 3 series aren't they? the one in the first link is the 7 series but just the single center.

The reason I am looking at two is that my amp is 7.1 capable and any new ones I get will be too.

My mistake - it is the 3 series rears I've got (I had 7 series fronts), they look more angular than in the photo. Very good though, and because they're bi-polar, it's like 2 for the price of one!

Yeah, I was worried about that for the rear surround and if it would effect the sound of the surround left and surround right? However I like the angular shape for the fact that my sofa will be quite close to that wall so the angular should help the sound go down a little and not be wasted!

Ok, I ended up buying the M3DS rears, seem nice and for 99 quid I couldn't complain. Hopefully will sound good, I'll be hooking them up this week when I measure out how much cable I need!
