I would say it's almost a wash. The difference between 7" and 8" in this application isn't going to be much at all because you're not able to do a proper enclosure (you're using the inside of the wall for enclosure). The C783 speaker only requires a small hole, which may help in certain ceiling locations. The crossover on the W873 might be a little bit better. The W873 is a couple hundred dollars more.
