Question ENERGY Take FPS speakers

I have been looking around for some time now trying to find some speakers to go in my bedroom on-wall next to my LCD TV. (Please see photo)

I found the Take FPS Flat Panel speakers on sale for $120.00 https://www.wwstereo.com/#/ecommerce..._84__0_0_0_-1/

I also Athena - WS-60 Speaker for 99.99 +s/h
http://www.audioadvisor.com/prodinfo.asp?number=ATWS60

I would like some input on build and sound quality.

L2W thanks for your input and I just love my Regza too!

As for the Paradigm Cinema, I could find alot of info online and looks to be a nice opt. but what would the cost be and can you order online? I do not have a showroom by me so online it would have to be.

Paradigm are in store only. If you go to their website you can find your nearest dealer. They are a cut above many of the other speakers that you can find online.

L2W after looking over the Paradigm website it looks like the only showroom is all most 100 miles away.

Would the Energy Take FPS be a good alternative in sound and quality?

I pulled the trigger on purchasing Energy Take FPS last week from Bob & Ron's World Wide Stereo (https://www.wwstereo.com) UPS rolled up last night.

The Take-FPS's provide an amazingly nice sound for their size. Very nice mid-range, decent, but not amazing, lower end, so maybe a good time for a sub upgrade The Take-FPS's are definitely impressive compact slim-profile speaker.

I have one question about these speakers. I know they have been designed to hang typically on either side of the TV (3 1/2ft or so), but would separating them further (about 6-7ft) improve the sound stage or would this simply ruin the imaging? And yes I have read http://www.highdefforum.com/speakers...ent-guide.html I will be mounting them this weekend. I will upload a new images when done.

In an average sized room 5' to 6' is ideal separation for the front speakers.
