Speaker Grills stick out

Summary: I love Definitive Technology speakers, this particular model is just a flub on their part. The website shows a picture with a flush grill on it. It is not a flush grill. The grill sticks out about an inch which is ugly and unacceptable. Another reviewer wrote this as well. It's because they've cantilevered the speakers, but they have cantilevered bipolars that are cantilevered but *don't* stick out, which you'd be better off getting, in particular the Definitive...
Summary: These speakers will work for anyone looking for a powerful little in wall speaker with good dispersion pattern for side speakers or back surrounds. They would work best in a smaller room. For bigger rooms go for the RSS II. I'd prefer that they used a flat wall cover instead of the raised grill ( sticks out about 1 inch from wall).
Summary: I was worried at first about ordering in-wall (ceiling) speakers at first, because I have DF's stand alone speakers that just sound awesome. But since I had no room in the back I have decided to put those in the ceiling. And I have to say I am very pleased. My wife especially like them cause they are pretty much invisible. But in wall or not - get them as big as you can effort - the sound is that much greater!
Summary: I set these up as part of my whole house sound system. I am using them in some large rooms as both main speakers and as surround rear speaker. I also have them in a very large 3 car garage in the ceiling. I have other brands that I am using in other places which makes it easy to evaluate the difference. These speaker produce an amazing sound, filling the room with sound that seems to come from walls and areas where there are no speakers.
