Satellite speakers are small speakers that require a subwoofer to produce a full sound. They are designed with "aesthetics first" in mind, generally to meet the requirements of a near invisible sound system. They do not require much power to get extremely loud, and are usually unable to produce a solid, room filling bass sound.
Satellite speakers are generally the first choice for a home theater system due to the speakers being cheaper, and easier to place than substantially larger bookshelf speakers, or floorstanding speakers. Satellite speakers are also much easier to set up than in wall or in ceiling speakers, mostly due to not having to cut holes in walls or ceilings.
Stands and brackets are available to suit all models of satellite speakers, some are model specific, but usually a universal bracket will suffice.
Satellite speakers gain their efficiency by not having to reproduce bass signals, which are redirected to the subwoofer. If the receiever that is powering your satellite speakers is not configured properly (crossover points set too low for example), it may cause damage to the satellite speakers. In many cases a home theater receiver will include microphone calibration to accurately detect and automatically send the appropriate signals to the correct speakers.
If you are aiming for a big home theater sound, one option would be to have larger bookshelf speakers or floorstanding speakers at the front, and using satellite speakers as rears to supplement the sound from the front.
