Summary: These are sold as EA, not a pair. They are wired to be left and right channel out of one speaker. I didn't know that when I bought them. I have 2 and hooked one up as left and one as right. I wired the RT to the Rt side of one speaker and the Lft to the Lft side of the other.They seem to work fine to me. If I ever lose one side I guess I'll have a spare. Tweeters pivot but not very much.
Summary: I bought this as it is the only single speaker in the Yamaha NSIC series that I could find. After ordering, I figured out that it was for stand alone stereo and not really intended to be a part of a 5.1 system (this is the reason for 4 stars). I wired this speaker's 2 channels in series so that it essentially works as a single speaker for my center channel.
Summary: I replaced an old Sonance stereo speaker with this and the difference is incredible. The construction quality is better, the mechanism for holding the speaker to the drywall is better, and the magnetic speaker grill is an excellent idea. The sound quality is great. Bass response is good and clear and hi frequencies are crisp and clear. I would definitely recommend this speaker.
Good Speakers...if you don't plan on painting the grills
9 November 2011
Summary: I have to say that overall I am very satisfied with these speakers. They installed very easily and produce a great sound. In the installation instructions, however, it indicates that the grills may be painted and all that you have to do is peel the scrim cloth back paint the grill and then re-apply the scrim cloth. This is simply not true as the scrim cloth is so thin it cannot be removed in one piece and the adhesive is still left behind and must be removed.
Summary: Le haut parleur est de bonne qualité. Je l'ai monté dans le faux plafonds d'une petite salle de bain et le son obtenu avec un connect: amp de sonos est de qualité très moyenne je pense que le problème est inhérent au matériaux de la salle de bain qui causent bien trop de réverbérations.
