I currently use a Lil'Wrecker but have a quad of AE IB15s that I plan to put in the wall over Christmas. As for the range on the Scalas, they're large, but their bandwidth isn't -- they start falling off rapidly at about 100 Hz, and by 70, they're done. My Chorus IIs have a much better midbass and integrate with the Wrecker much more easily.
That said, if you get the chance to hear the La Scalas, definitely go for it. They look pretty bad on paper, but in real life, there's something about them.

Thanks, I appreciate that!
