Summary: Debated on whether to use these or round ones and maybe spend more money. The surround sound turned out great and at a great price point! Installantion was easy but be careful when you put the grills on or you'll bend them. Thanks Polk & Crutchfield
Summary: I bought four for surround speakers in a 7.1 system. Everything went very smoothly. The mounting directions and template provided worked well. The fit and finish are good. The speakers sound good in this application. I debated between the 8 inch version and the 6.5 inch version.
Summary: I purchased these Polk Audio in wall speakers to replace my old Sony cube surround speakers.
These speakers provide great surround sound, that surpassed those old Sony cubes. The directional tweeter allow me to aim the tweeters to suit my room layout.
Pros: Great price and great sound.
Installation was straightforward, use the cutout, insert the speakers and tighten the adjustment clips to give it a professional look and feel.
Cons: One of the grates on the speaker had to be tweaked to get it to fit snugly into the frame.
