Summary: Music in my kitchen while I cook! They're inconspicuous and have great sound for a small area. Highly recommended. I wanted to listen to music while I cooked without having to turn up the livingroom speakers. These look nice and did the job.
Summary: I had got these for a friend who wanted to get in walls. We got these and the 6" round of the same kind for the rears. I could not believe how crisp and clear the sound is. I had thought we were going to need a sub to get adequate lows, but it wasn't necessary.
Summary: I put the speakers in my pool table room to go along with a subwoofer in a receiver that I had. The speakers sound great and are very loud when amplified with a good receiver. the installation was very easy and it came with a cut out for marking on the wall to ease the installation process.
Summary: I couldn't be more pleased with these speakers. I already had a JBL subwoofer and center speaker so I purchased 2 sets for the 4 satellites. The in wall design worked great because the house was prewired, there was no exposed wiring. These speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, so make sure your amplifier is set up for that configuration. I also recommend 12 AWG wire to keep these babies pumping out quality sound at higher outputs, and they do perform.
Summary: I LOVE these speakers. I have been working with inwall speakers for 4 years. I install / update home entertainment systems as a local business. I have had a JBL subwoofer for 4 years so I am familiar with the company. I upgraded my HES to these JBL SP8II speakers. I LOVE these speakers. The sound field is fuller and the bass response is crisper that any other inwall speakers I have tried (JA, NXG, Pioneer). I now recommend these JBL SP8II speakers to all my customers.
