low profile, nice looking wall mount PA speakers

Hi all,
I have a client who is building a band room in his house and is seeking something that is not an "eyesore" for main PA speakers. It's a high end client and a high end room. I'm looking for something that is adequately capable to keep up with a drum kit, but blends into the walls more than a typical PA speaker on a wall bracket. Maybe something paintable? Self powered preferred, networking is a plus.
something that looks like this:

but maybe with brand recognition and functional capability. Some of the Danley offerings look pretty good, and I'm sure the budget is there, although I don't have pricing on something like and SH69HT.
What's else is available for this?

Try any of the lines you may see in the movie theatres. I have JBL Cinema series at home and do open mic type sessions often. It works pretty well.

Mike Caldwell:
How big is the space?

I guess it really depends on what type of shows they want to put on in the house, all out party rock dance events or more laid back sit down and listen to acoustic'ish kind of acts.

Even if they say they are just going to do lighter weight acts sooner than later they will be wanting to do a big party with a full on dance band.

The speakers you linked to I don't see working that well unless it will always be light weight acts.....always.

I would lean more for non powered speakers in this case.

Are they going to plan on and supply all the other parts and pieces needed to do a band show.
Do they have someone to look after the system and operate it?

I know the speakers in the link are inadequate, I just wanted to demonstrate an example of the form factor I am looking for. I have absolutely no interest in or intention of using them for this project.
These will be attached to the wall/ceiling junction, about a 24" space above the door on one side, so that dictates the size.
He has all of the gear in the room, and it's his band. They are a rock band.
He has a pair of EV ETX12p, which suit the audio requirement, he just doesn't like they way they look on a wall bracket. This is really a "spare no expense" type of situation, thus my interest in the Danley stuff.

I would like to go powered to keep the equipment space requirements down (no need for an amplifier/ processor).
If we decide to go passive, I will probably end up with some kind of mountable wedge (something like EAW microwedge), hanging on the wall.
I am not in the install market, we do live production events, so I really don't know what's available in this market space. What are people using that sound great and look nice?

That's the type of installation design work I did for my last employer - high end residential that crossed over into Pro, lots of custom, hefty budgets, had to look awesome, and get louder/more bass than any sane residential system.  PM sent.
