Compared to other 'inexpensive speakers' the arms that hold the speaker in place work much better and I didn't have to solder the speaker wire to the speaker.
The provided piece of cardboard doubles as a cut out pattern and a board to cover the speaker while you paint the trim, if you're so inclined.
It isn't too difficult to paint the grill, if you're careful and patient.
I couldn't be happier with the results.
PROS: Great construction
Provides template for cut out and a paint guard to paint trim without painting speaker
PROS: * Easy installation
* Sound great
CONS: No gripes about these speakers - just a observation. Monoprice doesn't have a center-channel speaker that matches (in terms of style, rating and impedance) these speakers. Their 8ohm CC speaker has the narrow flange and is only rated 80W. I'm looking for at least 100W (although 150W would be nice), with the large (1 inch) flange - most 5.1 sources have the majority of the sound on the center channel (dialogue, etc).
PROS: Inexpensive but not cheap
Easy to Install
Sound is fantastic
CONS: Painting the speaker grills to match interior wall was a challenge.
PROS: Easy installation. Sound awesome. Easy to paint.
CONS: Wall clips are a little flimsy
PROS: Amazing sound. Quality feel & components. Nice look.
CONS: Need a subwoofer.
I will admit that when I got them and hooked them up to an old amp I questioned my purchase. Not installed in a wall they don't sound that good, actually sounded quite bad. I was really concerned for a while that I had made a bad choice but considering the alternatives were at least 3X the price and only 2-way speakers I trusted the other reviews and cut the holes in my wall/entertainment unit. Thankfully they were as amazing as everyone else has said.
This particular pair of speakers were mounted in a 3/4" plywood entertainment unit (not a wall). I couldn't get two mounting tabs on each to lock in, sheared of one screw on each but they are still more than secure. Having access to the rear of the speaker once installed I could see that some of the mounting tabs didn't stay in the track and got jammed. Good design but could be just a little stronger.
PROS: Excellent speakers at an excellent price!
CONS: Mounting tabs could be better/stronger. Damaged a few on the 5 speakers I installed.
Would be nice to have a little more guidance on how to paint them.
PROS: Easy to install, look good, quality seems good. Sound is great.
CONS: None really
If any of your listeners are thinking about in-walls, MonoPrice is a great place to go. The finance committee did not like my bigger bookshelf speakers and liked the look of in-wall speakers [i.e. invisible speakers]. I bought the speakers because the cables from them are great quality for a great price and the speakers are the same way. I would recommend MonoPrice to anyone.
PROS: Very high quality speakers for a great price
PROS: Great sound, easy install, unbeatable price.
CONS: None so far.
PROS: i installed 4 to replaced yamaha speakers with these in-wall. Now my theater room sound is unbelievable! surround sound while watching blue-ray dvd's sometimes have me looking around the room because i hear sounds i never heard in the room. BY-BY YAMAHA. I DO INSTALLS FOR PEOPLE AND PRICE AND SOUND OF THESE SPEAKERS ARE 1000% BETTER than some very high end speakers that i have installed
