...so guess what I'll be doing this evening! So exciting!

But one question before I cut holes in my walls. If I connect these babies up and place them on stands, will that give me a good impression on how they sound? I obviously don't want to cut holes in my wall first and then find I want to switch them out for another Axiom option.

What do you think? Will the wall make a huge difference? Based on what everyone here has said, I know I am going to love them!

Thanks a lot!

You should get a fair idea on how they will sound when installed.

The wall doesn't make any difference as they are completely sealed.

Congrats on the new speakers, snm69!

Yeah, like Rick said, you should get a general idea how they sound.

You'll likely get more bass when they're installed, to to the boundary effect of the wall itself. So, on stands, they'll likely sound a bit "thin". But yeah, it'll get you most of the way there!

I had a revelation just now. I have some spare drywall. I am going to make a cut out in a couple of pieces and mount the drywall on a couple of timber stands as a test bed.

....it might just work!

It is actually a good idea to try this in various locations, before you start cutting permanent holes in the walls. Contrary to what Mr Potato said, there will be a sound/performance difference, sealed or not, between placing a speaker within a wall, on a wall, or away from a wall a bit. Once the speakers are within the wall you will get better reinforcement and boundary effects that will aid in the bass frequencies. As Mark pointed out the speakers might sound a little thin for testing, but that is ok. In my testing of the new onwall m22's, before they were released, I experienced a very noticeable difference "on the wall" versus only 6" away from the wall. The inwall speakers should sound better once permanately mounted.

If you're wondering what they're going to sound like then what I suggest you do is send them over to my house pronto, I'll have a listen and tell you exactly how good they sound!
