Summary: The value conscious should consider this series of speakers. I used a pair of these as my rear surround in a 5.1 system. I love the sound (not claiming to be an "audiophile", just excited about the system) and everyone is impressed with how clean they look. The magnetic grills are super cool. Notes: They do have aimable tweeters. They do accept banana plugs. Installation is very simple. They can contact fiberglass insulation.
Summary: These speakers are easy to install and sound great. I am using these as my rear surround speakers and mounted them in my ceiling. They are hardly noticeable - due to the low-profile grilles that attach magnetically. The speakers include a template, and a cover for use if painting. I would highly recommend these speakers - the sound quality for this price is unbelievable.
Summary: look great, low profile, awesome sound, installed in master bathroom, 1 near shower, 1 over sink, can play music loudly, but clearly despite ohm diff between Yamaha mini stereo 6ohm and speaker 8 ohm
