Pros:

Very Clear sound
Decent range
Very good power handling
Good height, great width

Cons:

The depth is awkward, will need extended shelves if that is what you prefer for wall mounting to avoid altering the speakers themselves.

Other Thoughts:

Talked to electrical engineer regarding impedance. When hooked up to an Ohm meter these register at 4 Ohm instead of the stated 8 Ohm. The electrical engineer explained the crossover is responsible for this error in resistance reading and that during nominal power output to the speakers it will correctly register to the amplifier/receiver a rough average of 8 Ohm. So worry not if you decided to do the same thing.
