Looking for Ceiling/Under cabinet mount type Stereo speakers for RV

Look for some Ceiling mounted / Under Cabinet hanging speakers to use in our Amerigo restoration to go with the new stereo system. We're not looking for the kind that go fully into the ceiling or walls "flush". We're not interested in bluetooth speakers, as we already have a nice 2 DIN Bluetooth Pioneer stereo for the camper, we just need to see what brands of speakers are good quality these days that are wired.

Sadly, our local go-to for car stereos doesn't stock these kinds of speakers anymore, and finding what to call them specifically has been a bit of a challenge. The example below is a surround speaker, we're hoping to find a decent sound quality compact that mounts in a similar method.




We're looking for a pair that we plan to install in the corners of our dinette on the underside of the overhead cabinet.

Try Crutchfield if you haven't already, I find that they sell mostly good stuff.

Thank you, all, this is the most help I've gotten in this quest thus after having asked in multiple places .

I'll take a look at Crutchfield and parts-express to see what they have in offerings. Its been many years since I last needed to buy new speakers for anything.

Quick look at etrailer I found these:

https://www.etrailer.com/RV-Speakers...24-000003.html

At about $10.50 I'm not sure how good of quality or sound they would be though.

Thank you , I'm not certain if they'd be able to handle the driving power from the Pioneer or not, their wattage maxes out at 20, and I believe the deck has around 50 watts per speaker channel.

These are at the top of the current contender list:

Polk Audio Atrium 4



Since these are a little larger, we'll probably mount these to the walls vs the underside the cabinet, but will still be in roughly the same foot print.
