Should I be concerned (what are the acoustic issues related to) with mounting M3 on-walls with Full metal brackets?

You should not be concerned. I expect them to sound much better than regular M3s that are mounted on FMBs placed close to a wall surface. The wall-mounts are bottom-ported and moving them slightly off the wall or ceiling won't make an appreciable difference in what you will hear.

Thanks Mojo. That is the answer I’m hoping for.

Just thought some feedback and opinions might be worth while.before I went though the expense and trouble to try it.

The FMB have been designed very well with the distance they place the speakers off wall. The port reflections are actually quite minimal. The ability to aim at you will also greatly improve immersion. Especially if perfect placement isn't ideal or possible.

The on wall will not have as much low end due to cabinet. To which most people that have heard ATMOS with larger drivers highly recommend something with low end if possible.

Hopefully helps a little

Mojo, if anyone blazes the ceiling mounted M100 trail it's going to be you. Please send pictures.

Ahahaha. laugh I'll bet it's been done. The M100 comes in an on-wall version likely with slotted ports all around its perimeter to mimic the glorious full-size sphincters of the floor-standing version.

Actually, I’d believe it if someone did an on-wall M5.
