Summary: I added these speakers to upgrade my surround sound system from 5.1 to 7.1. These fit the bill. They sound great and installation was very easy. I am in the process of adding whole house sound, and will be using these in my kitchen, living room and dining room.
Excerpt: We have installed 12 of thes speaker to have music playing throughout the office. I have been satisfied with the sound of the speakers. They can handle loud very well and soft good. I pleased and that is hard to do. Easy to install and daisy chain. Good sound. I will buy them again.

Summary: I purchased 8 of these for my new finished basement in 2010 and installed them myself. Installation is a snap and the speakers are easy to hook up as they come with spring mount terminals. Here's the issue: These are voice grade speakers at best. There is nothing wrong with them per se, they just are not good for music. Sound is very flat, with little bass and little treble frequencies. Results with poor quality audio if you are playing music from a receiver.
