The only in-wall speakers I will ever buy....

Pros: Price, quality, sound.

Cons: None

I expected modest results when I purchased these speakers for my home theater installation. I figured because the price was so much lower than big name brand speakers, they must have sacrificed on quality. I was pleasantly surprised when I fired up my system for the first time and discovered how amazing these Kevlar speakers sound. It actually made me change my plans and upgrade to a nicer projector and nicer screen.......I wouldn't want "make do" equipment when I have quality speakers like this. They really sound comparable to the Bose speakers I purchased years ago for $$$$. Friends and family members have purchased these for their homes after hearing how incredible mine sound.

The speaker is of poor quality. They seem cheaply made and the sound is harsh, maybe they will sound better when they break in. I had numerous complications and issues with them. I will not be shopping at Monoprice again.

Careful on fit

Pros: Great sound. I put in a 7.1 system with this center, Kevlar 2 way in-wall fronts and Kevlar 2 way in-ceiling for mid and rear. I'm driving it with a Denon 7.1 home theater receiver and couldn't be happier. I could have spent a lot more money and not noticed a discernible difference in sound quality. I shopped everywhere and this was by far the best deal.

Cons: Size as per my review and the fact that I could get Kevlar for all of the others, but not for my center channel. That should be rectified by Monoprice.

The rough in for these speakers is about 15 1/2". A home with 16" on center studs leaves 14 1/2", if the framing is dead on. And, no framing is 100% dead on. Fortunately I was finishing a rough bonus space so I could remove a stud, place a header, and frame back in. If you're putting these in a finished space you may not be so lucky.
Keep in mind that if you want these centered under a TV, there may be a stud in the way anyway.

This center speaker sounds great and it is good for my family room. and the price is even better for the product. I'm very pleased With my purchase and I'm planning to install another system in my bonus room. I had a professional guy came in and install my system, he was impressed and complemented my purchase.

Sound great when installed and your receiver is dialed-in to suit.

Pros: Great price. Nice sound once installed and your receiver is dialed-in to suit.

Cons: Difficult to install horizontally if stud spacing is 16" OC.

Of course, I had to try this center out before I'd installed it and, like another reviewer, I found the sound to be pretty awful this way. That's because these aren't meant to be listened to until they're installed in the wall, so don't even think about it other than to make sure it actually works (a bit).

I was also a little nervous about the amount of void that it would be sitting in with my set-up, since I had a false wall that sits around 20" in front of the actual wall, creating an install void that is 43"x27"x20". But this didn't seem to matter any, while I thought a worst case scenario might see me having to box the speaker in some.

Anyhow, once I got the speaker installed it sounded pretty good but had too much bass evident at the recommended crossover frequency from my receiver's auto config (110Hz). Like with many modern A/V receivers, this one doesn't really give you a chance to equalize the sound in the old school way (with settings for treble, mid, bass, etc...), but you do get to change the crossover to cancel out (or redirect) some frequencies. For me to be happy with the way these sounded, since I prefer WAY more treble and WAY less bass for dialog, I had to change the crossover frequency from the receiver's recommendation all the way up to around 180-200Hz (200Hz being the maximum on my particular receiver), but now the speaker sounds just great to my ears.

The other thing I found a bit surprising, after using my old TV's internal speakers as the center channel for many years (yes, it did have speaker terminals on the back of the TV that bypassed the internal amplifier) was that I needed to crank the volume dial just a bit higher to get the same amount of sound. Now this just could be that I'm needing to drive the much larger speakers...I'm not an audio engineer so I couldn't say with certainty, and it certainly doesn't bother me being as there is still plenty of volume range left in the receiver beyond a comfortable level of sound, but it's perhaps worth mentioning anyway.
