Summary: I don't think these people do anything half way ! Easy to put together and install with nice housing for the drywall guys to roto-zip around and it has a place to hold the end of the speaker wire also. There were no instructions with it but it was quite cut and dry to clip the wings on !! Will buy again soon I hope !
Summary: I got these for our kitchen toward the end of our renovation project. With the overall cost of the project I was a bit price sensitive and hesitant to shell out this much money for a product without much name recognition (at least not for me). I have some fairly high-end Paradigms in our bar and wanted the kitchen speakers to compete. These are incredibly solid speakers with a big heavy magnet. The design is terrific.
Pros: fantastic sound, easy installation, almost invisible appearance
Cons: cost is high (but worth it for me), you will want to buy more
Summary: Despite their intimidating price, I bought a pair for our kitchen in Oct 2010, with the goal of obviating the need for a subwoofer. Installation was a breeze. Low profile is amazing...protrudes just 1/8 inch! We listen to them for hours each day. Awesome, crystal-clear sound powered by zone 3 of our Denon AVR-4311 receiver. Their bass is tight and sounds great; but I can't tell if they truly reach the 26 Hz cited in the manufacturer's specs.
