Allison and Snell - Against the Wall

One previous trend that has vanished and I wish would re-appear is speakers designed specifically to go up against the wall.

Sometimes custom line arrays are made like this, but neither Snell nor Allison's approach required line arrays to work correctly.  Is there a brand out there now which has taken up these design ideas?
I had Allison Ones in 1976.  You needed a room that was about 12 feet wide. You put the Allisons against the side walls 3 feet from the front wall with only one side of the Allisons facing the listening position. The other side faced the front wall which required a little absorption. Set up like this they would image very nicely. With the speakers facing you directly the image was a foggy mess. I never used them with subwoofers. None were around yet. 
K horns and the La Scala were designed specifically to be against a wall but back then that is what everyone did. They put the speakers against the wall usually in corners. Away from the wall positioning was born with the KLH 9 , Quads, Dahlquist DQ 10 and Maggies. My dad had Bozak B302A's up against the wall in corners. I am not a big fan of putting speakers in walls. The wall is nothing but a sound board with very unpredictable behavior. For theater systems sound quality comes second to last. It is more important to hide the speakers which you need for special effects. 
Vandersteen speakers that have the adjustable bass component, basically the Quatro and up, are all designed to be placed wherever in the room you need them to go. If you want them up against the wall then you can take the bass measurements there and make the appropriate adjustments. 
I think there’s a difference between speakers specifically designed to interface with the walls for broad band dispersion, and those who have limited or tunable bass.

In the former I put the Allisons, Larsens, Klipshhorns and Snell.

The Wilson Tune Tots and Vandersteens and my own LM-1s in the category of limited or tunable bass.
