These baby's rock!

S. Caton, Amazon
18 March 2014
  • Summary: I just installed these as my front speakers in a 5.1 surround setup and could not be happier! The level of my satisfaction was greatly enhanced by the fact that, when I turned the system on for the first time, my sub wasn't working (not properly connected). However, while I could tell I wasn't getting the powerful bass you expect from a subwoofer, these guys were driving some pretty impressive bass on their own.

MC80 in ceiling speaker

Dave, Crutchfield
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Right off the bat, I knew I needed discreet but quality sound since most wives don't approve of displaying tower speakers in a main living area. With this in mind, I needed to eliminate the separate subwoofer option, figuring the 8 inch woofers in the MC80 would be able to produce the deep sounds I desired.
  • Pros: super clean sound and rich bass that you wouldnt anticipate at this price point
  • Cons: nothing

Polk MC80

jazz fan in Georgia, Crutchfield
28 February 2014
  • Summary: My system is used for music only. I listen to mostly jazz, classical and sometimes progressive rock (Renaissance, Yes). The core of my system is the Onkyo A-9050 amplifier, which feeds a pair of Klipsch RF600 speakers in the study and a pair of Polk MC80 ceiling speakers in the adjacent workshop. At present my sources are a Grundig Satellite AM/FM/air/shortwave receiver, a Sony CD player and an MP3 player and all of my cables are Audioquest.
  • Pros: Sound just as good as the $500.00 Klipsch Reference floor speakers in the next room.
  • Cons: Spring clips instead of binding posts.

Polk Audio MC80

Todd, Crutchfield
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Excellent for the price. You can spend a lot more, but unless you have incredible senses these speakers will more than fill the bill. Also -- you can spend less -- and if you do -- you will know it. These are the right speakers for in-ceiling systems at the right price. I replaced our six on the main floor (what I'd call builder grade) with these. A great improvement.
  • Pros: Price and Sound Quality
  • Cons: Takes a while to "ratchet" them in. Also, they are just a tad smaller than the speakers I replaced -- so if measuring for standard replacement the flange that fits to the ceiling is about an 1/8 of an inch shy.

Great Sound!

ET, Crutchfield
24 February 2014
  • Summary: Chose in-ceiling speakers over wall-mounted. Easy to install as I had access from my attic. Sound quality is great. To maximize sound, the speakers can be pivoted and tilted so they reflect off the walls, as per the recessed ceiling mount set-up instructions.
  • Pros: Great sound and easy to install
  • Cons: None

Mc80

PRM, Crutchfield
24 February 2014
  • Summary: If you can use a tape measure, Sheetrock saw, and can read instructions the installation is easy peasy. The most difficult part was convincing the wife that I wasn't going to permanently scar the ceiling and satisfying her incredibly accurate ability to center things. The speakers sound great in a medium size kitchen and the treble & bass are evenly balanced as well as clear. Wife available for centering speakers within any space.
  • Pros: Easy install, looks great on ceiling, no need to paint trim or grill. Sound great.
  • Cons: None at this point
