Summary: Product is listed as "Directable 1/2'' Polymer Dome Tweeter" but received the item and it is NOT a directable tweeter. Upon taking the product out of the box I saw the tweeter was not directable as it stated on the product list and the product box. I contacted the manufacturer regarding this as well as the missing speaker connection terminals. I was told directable tweeter was a misprint on the box, Pyle website, and within the Amazon product description??
Summary: Like others who posted reviews on this site, both of my speakers came damaged with broken pieces loose in the packaging. The package itself was not damaged in any way, which leads me to believe these speakers are either very cheaply made or were already broken when shipped. I will be returning them and looking for a different brand.
Summary: The shipping carton and the inside packaging were both in perfect shape, yet the speaker frame was badly and obviously cracked. It had to be that way when it left the factory. I returned it and it's replacement was likewise damaged.
Summary: I had been looking for a while to find a good set of in wall spearkers for my surround sound. When I bought these the first set was broken, the frames were cracked on one and completely broken on the other. I immediately came on Amazon and reported it. I recieved my replaced speakers the very next day. Great Service! I now have these installed in the wall behing my couch and hidden behind two paintings. I must say for the price the sounds quality is very good.
Decent sounding mid-to-high range speakers with 3 inches depth

Summary: I was looking for shallow (about 3 inches with grill cover), inexpensive speakers for background office desk music and to replay recorded meetings. This was what i needed and so I'm happy. I just lean the speakers against the back wall of my desk unit. Sounds fine on "folk music", straight acoustic guitar (very good) and just recorded voice (very good); it's not what you want to play rock music at any volume higher than low levels.
these speakers probably deserve your consideration.

Summary: before I start actually reviewing these speakers, do understand these are not for audiophiles or for high end installations. now, I'll beak this down to a pros and cons list just to make this clearer. Pros: *Very inexpensive. I paid under $10 per speaker *they came undamaged *housings and speakers appear to have been manufactured pretty well.
Summary: I bought these as a gift for my father, who was finishing a new room in a house with a whole-home audio system. The installation was a bit difficult - the screw heads are prone to stripping, but once I finally got them in, they sound really good. I would recommend these speakers for that type of application.
Summary: Do not buy! On both speakers, all the clips holding the speaker to the frame were broken off. Thus the speaker was rattling around inside the box with all the broken clips. Junk! You get what you pay for!
Summary: The other reviewers are spot on in their description. This is a decent speaker to compliment others (I'm using mine as rear surround in a home theater set up). I don't think I'd recommend them for much more than that. Installing was very easy with the only downside being that you have to wrap the speaker wire around the terminals as noted in the other reviews.
