I have the in/ons (W22's at the time) and a W150 and I like them a lot. They definately do need a sub and I have mine crossed at 90 hz if I remember correctly. I tried it at 80 hz but there was a big dip in volume in the 80 - 92hz range or so which I guess in my room they could not cut it at that range. I don't doubt for a second the regular M22's will do better at a lower range but I much prefer the look of the W's in my situation. I use the theatre 90% of the time for movies and TV so I don't need the absolute best sonic performance.

Picture whoring alert:

Hi spiffnme,

Nice to see you back. And yes, you're correct, the in-wall/on-wall hybrid would be the better option because you will get more bass extension and a fuller-sounding upper bass.

That's because the enclosure is larger than the strictly on-wall version, which require no hole-drilling.

All my listening tests to these various models are done without a subwoofer operating. The midrange and highs are very similar to identical from all three. But on A/B comparisons (to the stand-alone equivalents), there is less upper and lower bass from the on-wall models.

Regards,
Alan
