Summary: Titanium tweeters and Kevlar woofers are what sold me at this price point. These materials are the highest quality found is high end stereophile equipment. The highs are clear and tight and the mid range is solid and not muddy. The bass is clean.
Summary: Great speakers. Good directions. comes with templates to cut the wall....I will admit i was scared to do that part...take your time. I finished a room so i had run the wires already behind the drywall...make sure you take plenty of pictures so you know where your wires are.
Summary: I installed them in my ceiling. Was very easy to put in with the snap and tighten clamps. barely noticeable (white on white ceiling) Sound is pretty good, but the bass is rather weak. The highs can be adjusted, but I did not really notice any difference when I tried it.
Summary: These speakers were delivered in the original packaging with all the original instruction, templates, and hardware. They sound fantastic and were relatively easy to install after feeding the wire through the wall. The only issue I had was getting the tension right on the retaining clamp.
Summary: I now have 3 pairs of these speakers in my listening/movie room mated to a Yamaha Aventage AV receiver and couldn't be happier with the sound. It's warm yet clean and clear when it needs to be. Construction was very high-quality. Combined with a sub - you won't miss a thing.
