Summary: I made a big mistake buying these speakers. I had two very nice Boston 380 in-wall speakers that had deteriorated due to age and needed to be replaced. I called Crutchfield to ask for help finding me replacement speakers of the same size that would fit in the cut-outs. These were the closest in size. I enlarged the cut outs to accommodate the new speakers and went to install them only to realize that they are mounted on plastic, not metal.
Summary: I was looking for speakers for my workshop that would offer a good level of base as I enjoy my music. These may have been overkill for the room but I got them at a great price. Overall, I am very pleased with the product except for the fact that they really shake my wall. I wish this would have been talked about somewhere as I don't think I would have purchased these speakers had I known this.
Pros: Great base, great overall sound
Cons: Shake the walls a lot. I am concerned that my drop ceiling is going to shake and that it could be bad to mount a TV on the wall given the rather severe vibration at times. An advisor recommended I use Russound Flexbox, but this is way to expensive for what I am doing. The wall vibrates across the whole wall and onto adjacent walls so this isn't just around the speakers themselves.
Summary: These installed great, were clean and tight to the wall and had no issues. Once the system was going these speakers really shined. The bass response was fantastic, the pitch was clear and tight and and the overall sound reproduction was amazing. The more these speakers were used the better they sounded (short break in period but wow). Highly recommend in all regards.
