I'm really looking forward to the wall mounting. The Vifas are super and I have used at least one in all the projects I have done over the years.

In addition to the pad suggestion, I've been thinking about a way to insure all the throat dimensions are accurately at spec. Maybe a brace of some kind. I know mine are not totally uniform.

Depending on your tastes, you may find it a little boomy when it goes on the wall but you said you have a good supply of pillow stuffing to add if needed?

Almost a bushel left. PE just lost a stuffing customer.

As the mind wanders, can you imagine a 5.1 or 7.1 theater system with these. Might not even need the "1"

He, he, you are not gonna stop thinking about them, I can tell.
I never thought about HT but this is good from standpoint of not taking any floor space in your HT room. The micro 14 inchers may be sufficient for rear channels, the mini or full size for mains, center channel just standard sealed skinny box with single Vifa to fit under tv screen. Very cost effective.

HT was the first thing I thought when I saw this thread. Think about how speakers are mounted on the walls in movie theaters.

For those who have long been bitten by the bug (specially bass reflex), as soon as I got the first driver in place I did that

"thump the cone - OOO! that's gonna be good" thing.

I did not get what I was looking for this morning - but boy was I wrong. These enclosures are really different.

Is thumping the cone like kicking the tires?
So it did not respond well to the thump test? But sounds good regardless?
