That is - without a shared reference point of experience - not more than BS talking to make everybody feel good or bad about sth. Opinion making without real use for any buying decision - not really what the "S" in AVSforum stands for. There is nothing one can learn from such discussions, nothing that is worth to share and keep in a thread that others would have to read through when they do their search.
And it makes a big difference saying "can't find anything
about them" compared to "i tried canton.de and hifi-wiki.de and i'm still missing this or that information", BTW websites that have been referenced here in this thread many times, and while google translate is not good for love letters, for a table of technical specs it is.
For me a jerk in a forum is somebody who doesn't use minimum efforts to gather information before he writes and then makes not enough efforts time-wise to tell the whole story. (And sadly since this forum supports Tapatalk the quality of many threads went south. At least the page impressions and ad revenues went up i suppose.)
Install depth and tweeter design is easy to find out for Inwall 7, it's also easy to find out about what they lack in terms of specs and features compared to the newer ones of Canton and whether the value for those used ones is reasonable compared to list price of new ones.
How they sound is a good question especially if you buy online, but for experienced guys there is enough information to make a good guess i think.
But if you say you have a friend who owns them and wants to sell them
, non of these questions should be hard to answer free of doubt, at least if you are not a jerk and your friend is not a jerk.
End of this discussion for me at this point - no use to debate more off topic.
