As a manufacturer what do you do if sales of your core audio and video products (and by definition, current loudspeaker sales) are declining?

Bring out another set of loudspeakers!

introducing another set of loudspeakers at this point is madness, utter madness!

B&O are you listening? We need a new coordinated multi room music system NOW!

Having speakers in-wall makes perfect acoustic sense.

A lot of people consider speakers clutter and want them small and unobtrusive, ending up with inferior sound.

These speakers deliver a number of advantages in performance and convenience, and they are not overpriced, IMO.

Getting those speakers in a wall is going to be a major effort. Most stud partition walls are not that deep, so I wonder if they can accommodate the speakers?

It might be easier to build the wall around the speakers!

Quite right Moxxey, and for that reason the number of sales will be low.

On the face of it these new speakers seem to share some components with the BeoVox2. The sales of which have totally collapsed.

Shame because I'm sure they'll sound brilliant.

I  would agree with soundproof, the room I have my Avant in could only have wall speakers. I do see a market for these.

Electrified:
As a p.s., I thought you were leaving. You cried foul and slammed the door, yet you're back, continuing with your nonsense and delusions of grandeur.

Oh yes I missed posting my nonsense on the forum for the couple of days that I was gone. B&O is going through a very exciting new phase I will like to be a part of the excitement.

There might be a few things I disagree with you on the crossover at 120hz part but I won't want to engage you. You do know that almost all subwoofers out there are active right? 

As much as I am a fan of active speakers and have only bought active. I won't dismiss all passive speakers as crap. Isn't that a little harsh on the people who prefer them?

Oh yes. Most speakers used for monitoring are flush mounted so the impact of cabinet resonances on sound will be reduced to the point of nill.

And the ideal baffle is one of infinite baffle which is essentially a wall.
