Default Wall mount backless Fullrange help

I have recently started planning my first speaker diy and was looking for some advice on which drivers to use for my project.

I plan on mounting 2 full range speakers in my wall with 2 subs. My room while a bit oddly shaped has an empty cold room behind the drywall that is perfect from what I've read for a backless setup. I had origonally planned to make use alpine 10.2s but that was when I was going to be building an enclosure.

Below are the ~ dimensions of the room with speaker placement. I would like to spend about 500$-750(max) on the drivers.

Any advice or links would be awesome.

Just to clairfy, I am looking for recommendations for a full range + woofer speaker setup for an infinite baffle setup.

Mounted on the wall, they will need a back, if just to create a seal.

Wall mounting requires a slightly different attention to detail on the bottom end as the wall becomes the baffle.

I am currently working on a left-right-centre wall-mount "sound-bar" for under a TV using Alpair6p (+ helper woofers)

I was planning on building the wall joists for support. With the room behind closed would I still need to seal them if the back room is a closed room?

Do you think the alpair 10.2s would work well with an infinite baffle setup like above? Most IB information I can find that's resent points to car audio speakers and woofers instead of the ones I see people commonly praising as good FR speakers.

Even with decent quality drivers (& filters / XO for multi-ways), it's been my experience that in-wall or in-ceiling systems have far more sonic drawbacks than any aesthetic advantage you might think.

The system Dave is talking about is intended to extend little if any more off the wall than the depth of flat screen and its mounting bracket.

edit: while not stated, the above assumes the large rectangle is a TV screen, not a window

BTW Dave, did you see my query regarding the installation method?

Plywood on the wall? I'm guessing the timing for that suggestion has long past.

what about the drive mounted in the wall, with the wall acting as the baffle and the room behind it as the cabinet?

i think i should ask my shrink to up the dose one notch

That has been suggested before, and if you have the house for it, makes a good IB.
