    Hey Curtis,

    nice to to hear from you.
    Good point about the ports. I had thought of that earlier, but had forgotten. Besides that, then, there would be little audible difference between the two choices, especially with a subwoofer. I’ll have to wait for the finished product, and make my decision then.

(It is probably obvious that Iím very tempted for a bedroom system.)
    With a depth of only 5.75" and being front ported, these are ideal for customers looking for an ultra high performance on-wall speaker, or for use in/on a TV console or entertainment center.

    ‘What sort of wall mounting hardware would work well?

    Depends, for flush mounting we will be offering the hardware. For attaching to a bracket, really any bracket that can work with a 1/4-20 threaded insert.

    Knowing that the Sierra Diamond is $7500/pr, what would you pay for these?

    They would no doubt be priced @ beaucoup and a nerd but making a couple of assumptions I doubt they'd much more than a Sierra Diamond:

    1> A Sierra custom Excel woofer is probably a tad more expensive than a W123CY003
    2> A Luna LCR is probably going to cost about the same as a Sierra II + a scoach

    So if I'm willing to spring for a Sierra Diamond but I have a personal preference for a miniaturized flush mounted speaker why not consider a Luna Diamond?

    Honestly it's too soon for me to jump on the Luna LCR Diamond and assuming Dave is willing to accommodate the following custom's, a huge assumption, all of them are on my list of possibilities.

    Luna LCR RAAL
    Luna LCR RAAL + W123CY003's
    Luna LCR Diamond + W123CY003's

    Sierra II RAAL
    Sierra II RAAL + Custom SEAS Excel Woofer
    Sierra Diamond + Custom SEAS Excel Woofer

    I'm planning to purchase speakers at the end of Q1 CY19 and I'd see it as a rare and welcome privilege to own any of the these speakers but until Q1 I'm staying open minded.
