Do you guys think there is much difference in the M3 bookshelf & the M3 on wall sound. I am going to use an EP125 also.
The on walls would be out of the way but I'd have to buy them.
I have the bookshelves but space is tight.
Thanks

I have a pair of M3s in our game room and my brother just bought a pair of M3 on wall for his computer room. They both sound fantastic to me. I fell in love with the look and sound of the on walls and want to get a pair but I'm not sure where I'd put them. Maybe surrounds for the media room...... grin

If the M3's are anything like the M22's, I found the full bookshelf design to have a fuller sound in the lower frequencies, you could listen to music without a sub. The onwalls don't have the lower end, so you need a sub.

OK, as I have a sub I'll try the on walls. I'm talking small room here.
Thanks

Should be fine with proper crossover setting.

you will have to experiment, I would start with 80hz, but I found my m22 on walls worked better a little higher than that, since my ep350 could do a better job in bass above 80hz.
