We use the Focal Dome Flax as rear speakers in a 5.1 system. They do a very good job at that position. I'd also say they would do good in a smaller room as stereo speakers. The sound is good relative the small size and of course bass is not so much and should be completed with a separate low end speaker in a srereo system, if the target is full range. Mounting it on a wall or ceiling is easy with the positioning options available. Rotate the wall bracket in different screw holes to change direction sideways and tilt the dome up or down forward. The side adjustment is about 40 degrees left or right in two positions each way. Forward tilt is 90 degrees, down or forward, with some force. There are several ways to get the cable through to the connection point, hidden or not. It is a little bit tight with larger cables.
Pros: Good sound in a small and versatile package.

I love these speakers. They're really really capable for their size. Friends and guests I've demoed them to are always impressed that such big sound comes out of such speakers. I'm using them for my home theater (I have limited room space) as a 5.1 setup with a separate sub, and they rival my larger JBLs I previously had. They're easy to mount and angle and sound just as good for movies as they do for music. Treble is bright without being harsh, and mids for dialogue are clear and not muddled at all. The wife acceptance factor of them mounted (I got the white ones) is high, and they look really art-deco and cool, unlike black bookshelves or tower speakers. I'm going to buy a black pair for the bedroom as well, I love these things!
Pros: Sound quality Design and build quality Mounting options
Cons: Price is a bit steep, but well worth it.

This is a good product from a respected manufacturer and my purchase experience was good.
Pros: Service was good. Delivery was on time and as promised. Speakers are as advertised--attractive with flexible mounting options.
Cons: These are not full range floor standing speakers with big woofers and magnets. They work for wall or desktop mounting and incorporating into the room's decor. They have a clean sound if you can supplement or do without the low end. Focal is a well known and respected company.
