Your typical a/v receiver runs at 8ohms, so this speaker could potentially draw too much power from your receiver and blow the amplifier. It's important to match your Ohm/watt ratings, so know your specs.
The "Micro-flanged" center speaker (#4930) is rated at 8ohms/80W max and is only 13 3/5" wide (fitting between standard wall studs) and is a better choice for most systems.
PROS: Too many to list!
PROS: Great Sound
CONS: Why the change to 4 Ohm?
This is the first time I am upset with a monoprice product. We do not control our walls and anyone mounting this speaker where the framers miss measured and shot the studs a half inch closer is screwed. These speakers need to be 15 1/2 across there is space it can be done 18 on center may be in a lot of new construction but most people buying this product are installing in older construction. Change this product Monoprice. Or create one for old construction and one for new construction
PROS: The price of the product and the quality. Easy installation
CONS: Not as much bass as I would have expected, but that is why I have a 12" powered sub.
Keep in mind that if you want these centered under a TV, there may be a stud in the way anyway.
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.
Any great home theater system begins with the center channel, matching the others around it to keep the same quality and timbre of audio. This speaker, amazingly, matches my Bose 901 floor speakers quite well. My audio system is more for music than movies, which explains the 901 speakers.
This center channel speaker has seamlessly been integrated into my audio system. I do have a digital Harmon/Kardon receiver and use optical cables (which are CHEAP here). I have run the system at near capacity (100w per channel, continuous, 125w program), and this little guy has not missed a beat. The drawback to the 901's is the need to push them a little when watching movies, but the upshot is they love the power. My previous center channel was a matched Bose center speaker, designed to keep up with the 901's.
I would purchase this speaker again and again. It is mounted on a shallow wall (only 12" deep) with no insulation. These factors do play a role in the performance of the speaker. Trust it will handle all the power you will throw at it, even if you are running the system a bit hot.
I did not have mounting issues other have mentioned, but I did not mount in between wall studs. Rather, I notched the stud to allow a center stud mount.
Purchase the speaker with confidence. It will certainly live up to your expectations.
PROS: Price, quality, sound.
