I've found a couple pro-audio speakers that would fit.
How I would ever hear them is the challenge.
Ah, I see. Unfortunately if you are going with the Wisdom, you must, must listen to them. They are not going to have uniform response that pleases everyone on all content.
If you do go with them, here are my two tips:
1. For any speaker to act as a line array as advertised, it needs to be the full height of the room. Anything less is not an array, unless it is a CBT design which the wisdoms are not. This makes auditioning even harder because the rooms better be similar in height for the effect to work.
2. The integration distance is quite long with these arrays. The taller they are, the farther you need to sit back to get around lobing (interference between the drivers). We had the Wisdom L75 in our showroom for a while and at distances that we sat, this was a big problem. Movement of your head forward and back a foot and you would hear very different sound. Your head would land in cancellation or addition of the drivers and with it, get very different frequency response. Unfortunately due to choice of drivers, this happens in frequencies that are pretty audible.
So go with them if the look and size they take is paramount.
