Not so good

Rick, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Bought these for surround sound and extensions for stereo in other rooms. First there is no base out of these speakers or so limited you can hardly tell. Tweeters are fairly decent by the speaker does lack mid range.
  • Pros: Attractive Design
  • Cons: Poor Sound Quality, Weak Bass

Great buy, Well made

  • Summary: Hooked this up using the Monoprice 4 channel speaker selector - two pairs of these with another pair of Yamaha outdoor speakers. Very good performance considering they are mounted in the ceiling with no boxes around them to enhance the low end frequencies.

Awesome Sound, Easy Install, GREAT price.

  • Summary: Hooked up 4 of these I. A 20x30 foot workshop. They sound amazing. The installation was a breeze. The template has tape on the back to hold it to the ceiling (very clever unless you stick it in the wrong place the 1st time and have to peel it off...what a mess).

Turn it up they can handle it.

  • Summary: These speakers compliment two Bose 191 speakers and believe it or not they work well with them. As others have said, make sure you go by the pattern that is given too you. Not much extra too work with. Good set, good price sounds great.

Great Surround Sound

Jason Pierce, Amazon

  • Summary: Well worth the price. Any negative are people who "think" they know what sound is. Is it the best ever? No! Is it great for completing a mid-level home theater on a budget - ABSOLUTELY. Here are somethings I have found though: 1. Speaker is bigger then anticipated (for you looks people) 2.

  • Summary: Sound good not the best but not the worst ... Then again not the most expensive or the cheapest. But if that doesn't bother u, then u will enjoy the sound they put out. Sound a Bit on the higher pitched side. But I like em hooked up to my projector and Yamaha tuner.

Caution - these are one of few 4 ohm options for home speakers but the speakers that ship are actually 8 ohm

  • Summary: I like these...except they are shown in the description to be 4 ohm speakers when in fact in the manual when they arrived they are shown as 8 ohm.
