Summary: I purchased these 8" speakers and thought they looked small when I received them so I measured them at 6 inches. I emailed Yamaha and they told me the 8" was the "measurement of the cone is measured by the diameter not from the center out, this measurement also includes the suspension foam that attaches the cone to the basket" (direct quote).
Couldn't be happier with these excellent speakers.

Summary: These speakers retail for around $400 in Australia so I was absolutely stoked to buy them for about a third of that on Amazon (with shipping). They arrived pretty quickly and were a doddle to install in the ceiling. The sound from them is excellent - I am using them as surround speakers with a Yamaha amp and they are as full, if not better sounding than the other Yamaha speakers I have.They also look good and blend in well, especially once the magnetic covers are painted...
Summary: excellent speaker podria decir que hoy empezaron las clases... pero no es asi. y la verdad es que no se quien tiene la razon. si los docentes por pedir un tanto por ciento de aumentoy mejorar las condiciones en que estan las escuelas publicas, o el gobierno por mantener su porcentaje y reclamando mas presentismo en las aulas. sea quien sea que tenga razon, las cosas van a seguir igual. pasaran un par de dias y levantaran el paro hasta nuevo aviso.
