Never thought of aesthetics being a factor for an inwall, but yes, the bigger 3-way would look more dominant taking up 1/2 the height of an 8' wall. Those woofers would look slick! But the thought that the driver complement of the CWM8.3 with the rohacell drivers, and FST midrange, to the front speakers is appealing, but necessary??
If i forego the matching Backer Boxes, which are also insanely priced $1700 MSRP, and build the encloser with plywood, you think thats a decent compromise, or better to go for the cheaper CWM8.5 with the backerboxes?
My opinion is to get the cheaper surrounds because there is NOTHING going on in the surround except ambient sound effects.
