    I respectfully disagree with your disagreement. Like Zing, because they blend in with the mantle colour wise , me likey!!

    I didn't notice the overhang. My opinion was based solely on how well the speaker blended with the trim.

    Yeah, the HSUs are much less deep than the other two. If pushed all the way back, the KEF don't have to overhang (maybe the grills would slightly). Moot point, as Renate thought they looked too modern in that room, and preferred the hardwood veneers of the HSUs and the HTDs.

    So, as I was looking I noticed they were all up against the back wall. So are the different models ported or sealed and if ported are thy front ported.

    I could easily research this myself but I am buried at work and only get ot devote teenie bits of time to my hobbies. Damnit work has really been getting in the way of my fun!

    Aesthetically I'm in Renate's camp.

    You gotta fix that man.
    Have you ever seen a headstone that said;
    "Here lies XXX.
    Wishes he had done more work and had less fun."?

    Me neither

    I know, I get it, I totally get it. I'm working on it. Just a really busy time of year and we have been behind but catching up.

    I was initially only looking at sealed or front-ported for that reason (both HTD and Kef are front-ported). The HSUs are rear-ported, but they have ~3" behind them, and i haven't noticed any ill effects. Plus i'm crossing over to the sub at 100hz, so that probably helps.
