The one time you want to pull out but she says no.

Ok sorry but I will summarize as short as possible. I have a stupid entertainment drywall niche. it's 2feet deep by 10feet wide.  That said I have ml 60xt tower speakers, and I think they would sound better if I could only pull them out another 2 feet but I can't due to aesthetic reasons, ok its mostly my better half that won't  let that fly.  So are there any towers under 10k that would work or should I be looking at bookshelves with subs.  my the living room is about 20 x 20 with 10feet ceilings.  


BTW, after a few months of pulling speakers in and out I just started leaving them out from time to time and eventually the wife just got used to them being more out in the room and so I just left them there — kinda like audiophile WAF desensitization therapy.

I am in a similar situation with my living room system. I am going to use the gliders from Herbies and the therapy as mentioned by @soix .
