An "interesting call", hey? So where does that leave the rest of us here? (Wish I could paste in a guy hanging from a rope by his neck)

I believe with the 24"x 10" opening that Panabrite has, he'll be fine with the ports and and his in-wall placement.

Whenever I built our room I was going to enclose a pair of 60s in the back wall for rear surrounds and was told by Axiom that so as long as I had approximately 4 or so inches of clearance behind and to the sides or top there would be no SQ loss, and with that clearance the ports would be perfectly fine. I went so far as asking if that setup would work for the mains and was told it would work 'perfectly fine'.

The dimensions of the M22s are H W D (inches): 19.8" x 7.3" x 8", so with his 24" by 10" opening Panabrite should be fine as long as there is clearance for the back of the speakers.

Beautiful setup Panabrite, welcome and enjoy!

Reading your post made my day..I am hoping they sound great.If not live and learn and deal with it.Before I purchased these I did call them and mentioned by situation and height location and the only concern or opinion I got was maybe place them upside down so the tweeter is more ear level.I did say I would send a pic, but ended up posting on here after purchase.
Did you ever do your built ins?
Ps I wish I was in Florida right now, -24c here

No actually I went with a pair of QS8s for the back, I couldn't make the in-wall build with the room I was working with. I was thinking about being more concerned with the height more than anything else, hopefully with the tweeters upside down you'll be fine ... also you *may* have the room in the enclosure to tilt them down a little, that may help.

It's 27 here in Vero this morning, unusually cold for us ... I'm freezing.

Hey panabrite,

While your solution may not be optimal, I don't think it's nearly as bad as people are making it out to be. Try it, see if you like it, and let us know! There's always fixing it later.

Just to add to your confusion, though, you should know that Axiom will be introing some speakers called T80s, which are M80s specifically designed to be integrated into a cabinet like yours (assuming yours is around 2 feet deep).

Oops... sorry... ;\)

Looking at your photo again (beautiful room, BTW!), I think the height of those T80 tweeters would be perfect! \:\)

I'm inclined to agree with RickF and Ken; I think you'll be just fine with the M22's in those openings. As long as the port can "breathe" (i.e. it's not sealed into a different space than the listening space and it has adequate clearance), everything should be dandy. On a sonic basis, I agree with the suggestion to put them updside-down, but that might look kinda freaky. I bet you'll be pleased. If not, you can always try the W22's.

Well.. They arrived and did not get delivered.Wife was home all day and at 11:50 this morning finds a note on the door saying to pick them up at the warehouse.We have had many shipments to the house and always answered.Our furry 4 legged door bell never misses a knock at the front door. I think -24 was enough to just put a note on the door and continue down the road to deliver the very small single packages and deliver the large 3 item packages back on a loading dock and call it a day..
My Rant...
6:00pm I can go and get them ..Thanks for the input guys.When are the T80s coming out?

Loc: It's all about the location.
Under the "news" heading on the front page there is mention of the T80s coming out over the next months (nothing definite). If this is something you might want to persue, I would fire an email to, or call up Axiom and see if they can give you a better idea. These speakers will open up alot of possibilities for dedicated HT's. \:\)
I hope the delivery guy didn't take your speakers back to the warehouse because the boxes were in too good a shape ;\) Just kidding, but nothing would surprise me.
