We've been in the professional Home theater Installation business for 23 years, and have been a speaker wholesaler for the past 10. We know speakers, and currently use only three different models of speakers for 90% of all our home theater and home stereo installations.
This particular 8" in-ceiling speaker is our most popular choice for installations because of its fantastic sound, durability, ease of installation, and smooth clean look.
These Very Hi-Quality LARGE 8 INCH speakers have a remarkable sound. For stereo applications there is NO NEED even for a subwoofer, as these units can reproduce a surprisingly low bottom end - in our showroom we actually shake the floor below, without a subwoofer. The bottom end of these go to 50Hz, the lowest I've seen in an in-wall/ceiling unit. On the other hand, the 1/2" Mylar Dome Tweeter, which can be aimed directly towards the primary seating area, reproduce very clear highs and can take quite a bit of power. With a 250watt rating, four of these units can reproduce 1,000 watts of Hi-Quality power, all while being concealed in the ceiling. For home theater applications many installers recommend using a separate CENTER channel speaker, different from the left, right and rear speakers. This is because the center channel speaker must be of excellent quality as it reproduces the main vocals. This speaker, however, has the quality rating of an excellent center channel speaker - so it can be used for all the speakers - center, left, right, and surrounds. Also, because these units are 8-ohm loads, you can wire two speakers on to each channel without overloading a receiver. This is useful since it is highly recommended that four speakers be installed into each room to eliminate hotspots. With less than four speakers in an average room with a <10' ceiling, the corners with speakers would be too loud in comparison with the corners without. This is why for entertainment purposes where background music is to remain "in the background", four speakers per room are recommended.
Important Two-Year Warranty Note:
Buying online can sometimes make it difficult in the event of getting something repaired or replaced under warranty. Because of this I include one warranty registration card with every 2 speakers ordered, so that if you need this 2 year warranty, you can send your unit right back to the manufacturer without having to go through us. We thought of everything - if you read our feedback you'll see that we truly care about our customers and strive to treat them as we would want treated ourselves. On a separate note: These speakers have a high rating, and it is NOT often we find these going bad. I seriously doubt with this speaker, you'll ever need the warranty, but it is nice to have.
The Easiest Installation: These units could not be easier to install. Use the heavy 9 3/8" cardboard template circle, which we include with your order, to make a circle on the the ceiling. Then cut the hole and run the wire. Then put the speaker in the hole, and tighten the attached screws. Four thick wings on the back of the speaker (see the photos below) fly out and securely hold the unit in place and prevent the unit from vibrating or moving in anyway. The lip of the speaker (see the photos below) is extra wide to cover any imperfections in your cutting. Then snap on the included white grill and you're done. Since these are 8-ohms, you can use 18 gauge wire for runs <50', or 16 gauge for 50-100'. Unlike with other speakers, NO HARDWARE IS NEEDED in anyway whatsoever, it is all attached to the speaker itself (see the photos). The speaker hardware can hold the speaker securely to drywall, plaster, drop-ceiling tiles, or anything else. We've been installing these for years now, and are totally pleased with the mounting system - it is the best we've found.
