    Gambled and won…I’m a long-time home theater junkie and bought these based mostly upon Internet hearsay with very little research. This is incredibly out of character for me, but I was willing to take the risk since this wasn’t intended to be a commonly used viewing or listening area in our new home.I was pleasantly surprised to find out first-hand that not only do these not require a lot of power to drive, but they also sound amazing for the money, as well. This is a great thing for me, too, since we now commonly use this space and the sound isn’t found to be lacking far behind my other, much costlier system. Don’t hesitate to give these a go!

    Must Buy!!!I am blown away by the quality of these speakers. The price is incredible! You will not be disappointed!!

    Installed in unfinished basement ceilingThe media could not be loaded.

     Overall they have decent sound for the cost. I recommend supplementing them with a subwoofer. I got a F12 that really filled out the bass. It was night and day. Great product tho! They were much larger than I expected but it was a pleasant surprise.We’re making our basement look better on a budget without finishing it: Eg. black painted exposed ceiling, recessed rgb led lighting, and of course these speakers. I wanted to paint them black to match our ceiling, it was really easy. Here’s what I did:1. I measured between the floor joists in my basement then I cut five 18.5″x15″ drywall rectangles to rest on top of the i-joist flange. These will hold the speakers.2. Then I routed a 9.5″ hole in the center with a circle jig.3. Flip the drywall over, put the speaker in it, remove the grill by prying it off gently with an awl.4. Put a plastic cover over the cone (I used a cheap 8″ vigoro planter saucer drip tray thing) then spray paint it.5. Remove the speaker, then flip and paint the face of the drywall. Repeat this for all the speakers.6. Paint all the grills.7. Mount the speaker in the drywall rectangle, tighten until you feel resistance then back it out a turn (if you look at the clamps on the back, see that they’re not tightened so much that they’re angled, they should be at a 90° as much as possible if they’re even a little tight it’ll flex the plastic frame and you won’t be able to get the grill on.8. Put the grills on.10. Rest it up in your joists and run your wire.This was a Sunday project for me, it took me about 5 hours from start to thumping beats in my basement but I wasn’t rushing.

    Great addition for soundGood sound for the price. I recommend getting the ceiling enclosure for speakers to direct more sound in the room.

  5. Amazon Customer

    Great speakers!We got a subwoofer for bass. This is speaker is amazing for the price. If you don’t want anything fancy, just enhance the sound when watching movies or listening to music. Get a sub though. This is s winner.

    You cannot beat these for the price.I am loving these speakers. They sound absolutely amazing. I originally planned to buy Polk ceiling speakers and was ready to shell out almost a grand for them, and then I saw these on Amazon while researching. The reviews were very good, so I contacted the company because I couldn’t find a manual that I could look at to help me decide. They sent me one immediately. I asked them why they don’t advertise and they told me that they put their money into making the best speaker they can and let word of mouth do the rest. Well, they sold me. I am not a picky audiophile, but I do like my sound system to deliver and these speakers do the job. I already had a Polk subwoofer and combined with these speakers in my man cave, they sound amazing. Tested their limits with songs like YYZ, Tin Pan Alley, Jack of Speed, Get Lucky and, of course, Bohemian Rhapsody. All sounded amazing and hit the individual speakers right where they were supposed to. For movies, the surround was spot on. You may not believe that a sub $200 set of five speakers can deliver like this, but I am here to say that they absolutely do.As for installation, they are light enough (4lbs each) that you do not need a weight distribution bracket for the ceiling tile. Just use the template to set the hole, cut the tile, drop the speaker in and secure the bracket. Took no time at all.

    Amazing speakers for the price!These speakers are amazing. The first time I used them I thought they were so-so. User error, I had my gains all messed up on my receiver. After dialing everything in Wow! These have great mids and highs. I nstalled them on my first floor where there was no insulation so I added some around the hole. This helps alot with the sound. I got 5 of these and paired with a sub. Sounds Awesome!!!

    Glad I took the chance on these! The reviews are true about this one!I prewired my new construction home for 14 speakers. I moved in December and since then have been doing tons of research on in-wall / in-ceiling speakers. I was ready to spend about 1.5-2k on more commonly known brand name models (Polk, Boston acoustics, Klipsch, etc..). Then I came across these on Amazon and thought i would gamble with a set of 5 to see how they would sound in my living room. I have 10ft ceilings so i went with 8′ 3-way speakers while using 16 guage speaker wire. Needless to say, this is one of the best, and a bit lucky purchases i have made in a while.My only gripe is installing the cover grill once you have secured the speaker to the wall. The first speaker took me about 1 hour to install, but the rest went by much easier once I got better with the drywall saw and knew the exact size the hole needed to be. Reinstalling the grill cover was a challenge mainly due to the fact that after you have mounted the speaker to the ceiling the plastic frame may have warped ever so slightly. If your hole is too snug it will warp the frame just enough to make the grill hard to fit. So, I grabbed a pair of needle nose pliers and made a crease on the lip of the grill cover (the part that’s folded up that wedges into the housing). I just grabbed about 1/4 inch of the lip and turned about 90 degrees and repeated on 4 sides. this reduces the circumference by some millimeters to make the grill fit in a little easier. Be careful not to twist too much.After install was complete i hooked up my speakers to my onkyo receiver and played some tunes on stereo mode so i can stand below each speaker and was immediately impressed. Good bass, mids and highs. I added a 10″ sub to give the movie effects that added boom factor.Im looking forward to buying the other 9 speakers i need at the fraction of the price of the higher end brands. I will save about 1.5k with these speakers!

    Shockingly Good ValueI’m not an audiophile, but I am very impressed by these speakers. Seeing the nearly universal positive reviews, despite the low price, I was skeptical, but after two weeks of use I’d say they’re valid: these speakers may be disappointing to the most discerning of listeners, but I doubt that I could tell the difference were I to have spent substantially more.I’m using five of these, all mounted in a drop ceiling, to complete a 7.1 system. I already had the other two speakers I’m using immediately to the left and right of my TV (some Boston Acoustic bookshelf speakers that cost more than all five of these combined), and a low-end Sony Subwoofer. Accordingly, these are mainly being used as center and surround speakers, and with 5.1-encoded programming, that means they’re mainly used for dialog and effects. I could not be happier with the sound — it’s a major improvement from having just the two stereo speakers, and I have yet to have even a moment wondering if the sound were somehow inferior. Instead, I’m struck by how good they sound, and how immersive the experience has been.In terms of installation, I have a drop-style ceiling in my basement, perhaps as old as the mid 1950s, with each tile being one foot square. I used the included templates to cut appropriate holes into some cheap 1/4″ thick panelling that I bought and cut to replace anywhere between one to four of the existing tiles. With a little shimming and painting, I’m very happy with how it all turned out. And, I’m definitely glad that I went with ceiling speakers for this project; we have three young kids who rage in our basement, and I love that the speakers are all up and out of the way with not visible wires or protrusions to be hit by the occasional flying football!

    The tweeters do not gimbal(not tiltable)So bummed the tweeters do not gimbal. We’ll see how this goes… actually, I’m pretty blown away these speakers sound great I can’t believe how great they sound, and the low end is solid. I’d put these up against speakers twice the price easily very very happy.
