Soffit across room, bad idea?

The Atmos speakers that match my set are 6” so indeed not that high. I do like the look of the side soffits, instead of those Beast clouds, but your mention of the word cloud does give me an idea. I could make a slight bulge on the soffit. That would even help with clearing the path between speaker and ear, if I use speaker cloth there and no mdf.
(in the circle you can see how my speakers are slanted, it’s very much shaped like those upfiring add on Atmos modules, but down from the ceiling).
So maybe this will work? Bit more complex to build though.
