Summary: I installed these in the ceiling of my new house to fill the role of rear speakers in a 5.1 system. I used the round faces because all the other stuff in my ceiling is round. They look dapper and they sound great. I would buy them again.
Summary: Read the review before rating "unhelpful" In the late 60s, bose wowed The world with the 901 speaker, they were simply the best fidelity at the time. In the 80s, the world was stunned by the tiny wonder known as the wave radio. In the 90s it was the teeny acoustimass surround systems. Fast forward to today, bose has only one thing going for it... BRAND LOYALTY. When it came time to put speakers in my new house, I thought "bose are great, right?
The clarity and tonal quality of the Bose speakers is excellent.

Summary: I recently built myself a "mancave". In the cave, I have all the manly things a man hibernating should have: a beer tapper, wet bar, leather furniture, and one heck of a good entertainment system. To go along with the 65" Samsung TV, I put in four of these Bose speakers, to go along with a big-honking subwoofer, and two side speakers and a center speaker. The clarity and tonal quality of the Bose speakers is excellent.
Summary: This is the second pair I have bought. I installed the first pair in a house that we built before the drywall went up. For our next house, I installed the second pair during remodeling. You need to be careful following the instructions and very careful with your measurements. But, the instructions are very complete and carefully thought out. The sound is terrific. My wife loves the Bose sound and won't buy anything else.
