Summary: These are great speakers! Installation was very easy. The speakers pulled into place perfectly, with a nice clean flush finish. We have not yet painted them but they come with a paint shield in place for painting the trim ring. The grilles snap into place with ease.
Summary: Before I made the purchase, I called Polk Audio and their rep. said MC80 was a better quality speaker than the RC80i. I initially tested the speakers on my living room floor and was not happy. The treble was below average and the base was horrible, not to mention almost non-existent.
Pros: Great sounding speaker. Quality construction materials. Lifetime warranty.
Cons: None other than a Polk Audio Rep said they will discontinue this model.
Summary: These speakers have a wonderful sound. I received great counsel from the Crutchfield team. I just finished my basement (fairly big area). I have a living room area, pool table and very large bar. I was looking 4 ceiling speakers in my living room area.
Summary: We moved into a new construction home that was pre-wired for surround sound. I purchased 5 of these based on the good reviews. The overall sound quality is great. I was a little worried about using it for the main center speaker, but we have been pleasantly surprised! Great buy!
Summary: For the money, you're not likely to find a better value. And everything about the actual speaker itself implies QUALITY, After installation -- powered by a SONOS connect/AMP, I felt like these MC80's sounded just a tad "tinny.
