Hey guys,  
              Renovating my Master bathroom and I am looking for some recommendations for speakers to use in my bathroom.  The speakers will sit on a shelf and will most likely be powered by a sprout.  There won't be much room behind the speaker, so I imagine I will need something front ported.  
I auditioned the B & W 686's but they left me a little unimpressed.  I really didn't feel like they set up a nice sound stage.  
Here are some details:
Budget 0-1000
Bathroom is 14.5 feet by 12 feet and 8 feet in height.   
Bathroom will be wall to wall tile and the shower will be a glass enclosure.
To get an idea of what kind of sound I like, here are some speakers I auditioned (that won't work for my purposes) but I liked:
Martin Logan Motion 15 (rear firing/power hungry)
B & W CM6 (Budget)
Any help will be appreciated!

Front ported from a well respected company; available in white, decent low end extension.
Designed for handling weather outdoors so would be fine in a bathroom.
