Summary: This is a great speaker. So often, I see folks using or installing a low quality center channel speaker and it's arguably the most important in a home theater setup. If you're looking for something that won't break the bank, but has great sound, this is your speaker. It is being used with a high quality 9.2 surround setup in a home theater and I couldn't be happier that the quality matches or exceeds the rest of my equipment. It was easy to install and connect.
Summary: I am in the process of finishing our lower level family room for which I purchased this item. I have not begun to sheetrock this area so it will be at least another month before I install this speaker. My rating is based on research rather than experience.
Summary: Replaced an old center channel that was sitting under the tv with this in wall. The speaker has a protective plastic cover which made it easy to paint both the grill and surround. And the template was perfect to trace, cut, and get the speaker mounted into the drywall.
