I found the right word for it:

I expect the speakers to have DRAMA (both visual and sonic)

We should aim to give the clientele an experience they could not easily achieve at home.

If you go with four mids, I would recommend short line array like nola (alon)...maybe as dipole, less floor bounce. I have done it, works for me.

I totally agree on keeping the 6FE200 open backed.
But the line array suggestion makes my lobing anxiety worse.

If you want something that sounds amazing and looks really cool, it's hard to beat the big Western Electric horns as the centerpiece. I've done that on a temporary basis, and it became legendary in Paris. You do need a fairly large space, tho maybe not as large as that place in Korea.

The great thing about the big W.E. horns (or similar) is the size and scale of the sound. They sound life size, and don't have to be loud to do so. Bass can be easy or difficult, it's up to you - and the space.

Details if you want them.

sounds to me like you have had enough DRAMA!

Big speakers need big spaces. Big spaces are harder to treat acoustically.

The louder you make it the noisier the patrons will be.

Smaller simpler speaker IMHO sound more natural and fewer artifacts from the
crossovers and cabinets. Horses for courses tho. Good luck.

+1 Nothing can beat WE in this context. My concern is durability, though...

Time to look at the M-Force subwoofers IMO. A 40" cone a side is where things will get interesting. 18"s are commonplace IME.

I guess you mean something like this SPIRITLAND – come home to music

Spiritland offers "unique new music space" at London's Merchants Tavern | What Hi-Fi? the original setup had Tannoys which looked rather good.
