Summary: These speakers ROCK!!! I upgraded my 5.1bookshelf system to in wall in ceiling speakers. After the hard part of crawling around in the attic running the wires the rest of the procee was a snap that only took about 45 minutes.
Summary: Great value for these speakers - very good performance for price. Easy to install. For surround sound, makes a good front L or R or rear L or R (but not the best for a center - would not recommend for that).
Summary: Tested each speaker before install and found one with some mid-range problems. [...]. A little worried on the overall durability, but the working speakers sounded great with my old sub-woofer, but plan on upgrading soon. Im still seeking a low profile solution for a center channel for a wall not sutible for in-wall installation.
Summary: Mounting the speakers in the wall is a fantastic idea. Once mounted they are completly out of the way. Unless you look, you don't even notice the speakers. It takes a little work to mount the speakers and wire them to the amp. Each speaker comes with a cardboard template for making the holes. Once the speaker mounting hole is complete you need to run the wire to the amplifier. I made a 1/4" hole from our crawl space thru the bottom of the wall to each speaker.
Summary: I used these speakers to replace horribly sounding, ultra-junk quality Radio Shack speakers and these hardly sounded any different. Their construction was awfully close to the Radio Shack speakers, as well - cheap MADE IN CHINA quality. I think people just follow other people's reviews and are easily influenced by "brand names" rather than judge equipment on its own merits. I regret the purchase am now looking for better quality additional speakers.
Summary: I put these in the ceiling of my recently finished basement and used them for the mid's and rear's for my 7.1 home theater. I primarily use them for home theater/xbox 360 gaming and sometimes for music and have to say I'm impressed on all fronts. Installation was a breeze and the speakers put out some really great sound. My son loves playing first person shooters on the xbox 360 and brags about how he can hear footsteps next to him and from behind.
Pros: Easy Setup, Easy to Mount, Great Sound Quality
