the official specs list the dimensions of this speaker at 8-7/8" W by 21-3/8" D. what i need to know is whether this is the actual size of the speaker as it lies on the floor. my confusion comes from the fact that according to the pictures of the A9, it looks like there are 4 feet protruding from the sides. are these feet included in the width? are they removable? if they're not part of the 8-7/8" width then what is the actual width of the speaker? how tall are the little feet things?

the other issue is that the speaker obviously tapers as it goes back. so a true 8-7/8" width up front can't be the width in the rear of the speaker, at least according to the pics. thanks
