Summary: Let me start off by saying I built a new home and pre-wired a 7.2 surround sound setup. The room is 20'L x15'W x10'H. I did not want towers or bookshelf speakers. I wanted my front right and left speakers installed in the wall directly beside my TV, and all the other speakers mounted in the ceiling, with the exception of my subs which are to be located on the floor of the wall where the TV is located.
Decent speaker not much base a few broken clips if you're not careful.

Summary: This speakers sound really good when paired with a sub-woofer, otherwise they don't have much bass response. They appear to be built very well. The clips that hold the speaker into the wall are a little tricky and if you're not careful you could break them, which I managed to do. Three is enough to hold the speaker tightly into the wall though.
Summary: Having worked for a high-end home audio store in College, I am somewhat opinionated about sound quality. While these speakers fall short of competition like Martin Logan, Theil, Magnepan and others, they far exceeded my expectations. Dollar for Dollar, the Yamaha speakers beat the high end brands hands down. For such a small package, they somehow manage to provide adequate deep base (below 60Hz) and provide very crisp mid and high range. You will not be disappointed.
Summary: I use these as Dolby 7.1 Rear Left and Rear Right. I love the fact that you can aim the tweeters and these sound phenomenal with my Onkyo TX-SR707 and the other new speakers in my system. Excellent sound and very easy to install. Painting was very easy and no problem painting the grills using a little patience. Th only thing that wasn't obvious from the photo was that the gills do bow out a little on the front and are no completely flat, but still very nice speakers.
Summary: I got Yamaha IW660 for the surrounding speakers of my home theater (23X12X7 F) in 7.1 set up last year. Building quality is very good. They look nice and heavier than I expected. With template supplied with package, installation was easy. Power listing for these speakers are 150 w maximum, which is higher than many speakers in the same class. Three way drivers is a bright point that make these speakers spacial.
Summary: I installed the Yamaha NS-IW660 speakers about two months ago and I'm very satisfied with the product. They sound great and easily handle any volume level that I throw at them. Just in the last week, I upgraded my receiver and that made them sound even better so don't blame the speakers if you have a cheap receiver. My old receiver was 5.1 so I was using them for the rear channel but my new receiver is 7.1 so I am now using them for the side channels.
Summary: First of All let me say i received these speakers very fast and in great packaging. Upon opening the factory sealed box the speakers were packed laterally standing on there sides rather than flat. FIRST thing I did when examining the speakers was to loosen the wall retaining clips( PLEASE DO THIS FIRST, IF YOU DONT THEY WILL BREAK ON INSTALLATION). installation into the walls were as easy as i thought possible.
