    Can these grills be painted?
    New User U on Oct 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes they can. They provide instructions on how to do it, but you basically want to use a spray paint so you don’t clog the holes.
    Will these work with the 4101 in-wall speakers?

    ABS Back Enclosure (Pair) for PID 4104 8in Ceiling Speaker
    ABS Back Enclosure (Pair) for PID 4104 8in Ceiling Speaker
    BEST ANSWER: No, they look like they are designed for the round speaker only. Unless you are putting these in the ceiling and are worried about the impact of blown insulation, I would not worry about putting these on a wall speaker. I am pleased with the sound coming from the 4101 I have placed as L/R in my wall for mains. I think the backer could adversely impact the amount of air volume with the drivers and even pose a challenge fitting in the wall space. My 4101 sounded a little harsh the first hour or so, but warmed up very well after a couple hours use. Very pleased with the overall sound for in-wall speakers
    What cubic volume is recommended for an enclosure? Even though it's not required, I would still like to build them.
    Nathan D on Jun 7, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I can't answer your question directly, I think exact cubic column would have to be answered by the manufacturer, but I can say that when I put mine in wall, I did enclose above and blow the speaker with a 2x4. And in my ceiling speakers I enclosed around the joists as well with mdf. So mine are enclosed in what I thought was a reasonable size, and they sound great.
    If these were mounted in a wall cavity that backs up to a staircase would there be much bleed through to the other side of the wall, I.e. Loud in the staircase?
    Matthew S on Oct 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Not really. I have them placed on my first floor ceiling and is not affecting my second story significantly.
    could you gve me the dimensions of the grills for the 8" woofer in wall speakers model 4101?
    A shopper on Apr 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The grill dimension is about the same sixe as the Cut-out dimension, 12.76" x 8.70" (324 x 221 mm).

    Kiss Polk Goodbye!
    I paid the exorbitant prices for Polk, believing I was getting a good value for seriously high end speakers. And then, just to satisfy the gnawing feeling I paid too much, I then googled images of Polk versus the Monoprice and found very little difference. So I ordered these speakers to prove Polk's supremacy. You can imagine my surprise when I opened the box and found an eery resemblance to my $500+ Polk speaker. Electronic crossover, etc. I had always thought Polk was manufactured in the U.S., but I was wrong - made in China (just like the Monoprice). I'm very picky about my high fidelity and I challenge anyone to be able to tell the difference without the spec sheets provided by Polk. After comparing the two sets, despite the Polk advantage of being installed in a specific home theater environment and the Monoprice being installed in my living room with no acoustic treatments, the value of these units blows away the Polks. Don't drive yourself crazy worrying you're buying less than the absolute best. Polks are only better on paper, not in your listening environment.

    PROS: Easy Install
    Low Price
    Excellent Sound Quality
    Excellent Value

    CONS: None That I can see.

    Believe the reviews - No need to hesitate!
    When I first checked out Monoprice I was in the market for cables. I couldn't believe that you could purchase HDMI cables for less than $5. After running through the entire online catalog, I ran across Monoprice's in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Honestly, I was quite skeptical. I had just paid a little over $200 for my last pair of 8" in-wall speakers, so I found it hard to believe that I could get what appeared to be a nearly identical set for 1/4 of the price. I figured "what the heck, I'll do it". I had been thrilled previously with the quality of HD cables I had received from MP, so I took the risk.

    Wow, was I surprised. I installed the speakers with no issues (Very decent size magnet for this price!) and the sound at the very least equals my previous pair. The cone quality is even higher, with kevlar. It is very solidly constructed, no cheap materials, color was perfect matching my white trim. It came in perfect condition in good packaging, on time as promised.

    After installation I cranked them up to a level that is normally well beyond where I would listen to action movies, with no distortion, buzzing, or cracking. They are perfect for what they are, front, center and rear speakers. Disregard anyone making comments about the bass level. They are absolutely fine for the speaker positions they are intended for, hence the 5.1, with the .1 being for a subwoofer. You want crazy bass? Buy an independantly powered sub. I recommend at least a 10" but preferably a 12" for larger rooms. Don't waste your time with a passive in-wall 8".

    Monoprice.com will see lots of business from me. After hours of scanning the net for great prices for cables (along with EXCELLENT wall plate and keystone prices) and speakers, this is it. What a great deal.

    4101 - 8 Inches Kevlar 2-Way In-Wall Speakers
    I have a 7.1 system with a 4101 as a center, 4101s as L,R and rears, 4104s for surrounds, and a HSU STF-2 subwoofer. The 4101 is the fifth center I tried (third Monoprice in-wall). I tried Monoprice's 4881 and 7604, but they didn't timber match well. The 4881 sounded a little weak (not loud enough) and voices sounded a tad bit hollow. The 7604 sounded a little weak and didn't have the highs I needed. I decided to try a 4101, which isn't designed to be a center. So in it went......and so did another drywall patch job. Since the speaker was the same as the L/F, I expected them to timber match, so that was no surprise. What did surprise me was how well voices sounded. The first movie we watched was War Horse and it was amazing. I'm anxious to watch (listen) other movies in my collection now that I have a center channel that I'm happy with. Using a 4101 for a center is absolutely the way to go if you're using 4101s for right and left fronts.

    PROS: Great mid range that produces clear and loud voices. Crisp and clean highs. The speaker can handle a lot of power (watts), but doesn't require a lot of power to produce great sound.

    CONS: Push connectors for speaker wires are ok, but are not great. The woofer does not produce the deep bass you would expect from a 8-inch woofer however, nearly everyone uses a subwoofer for bass so it's really not a factor.

    HT designed.
    Tested mid and tweeter outside the wall, it didn't sound too good new. I used various 14, 12, 10 awg monoprice and dh labs wires. After 80 hours breakin, treble/mid improved tremendously and became smoother, 3D airy, less harsh. Midrange does have a bassy tone simple because the woofer/tweeter shares the job. Woofer upper bass does settle down, becomes more accurate, sensitive, less boomy and deeper after 60-80 hours use. Bass is also sensitive to lesser quality wire/equipment/power. After installation, bass was restored and everything sounded better still. I installed these to be a middle surround for a 15'x18' HT room, 7.1 HT app. with 21' 14 awg monoprice wire. Lesser wire hurt sound quality, yet thicker 12 awg or (14+12) 10 awg monoprice copper didn't make a noticable diff, perhaps slight improved resolution and louder or for longer runs. Pushing 120 watts of audio through thin awg wire sounds more monotone. Performance, composure and sensitivity are good to very good overall compared to overpriced offerings of other companies. Sound is 10 for the price (double with s/h to Canada). 7-9 compared to others up to 4x the price. Highly recommended in HT apps, good voices, sound effects, surprising deep side speaker bass, you won't miss a thing.

    PROS: Heavy woofer magnet, kevlar damping, good coil, fair crossover design, directional tweeter, tweeter eq switch works well but I left it at 0db, wire spring connections are tight, can accept 9 awg loose wire. Installed in-wall with roxal insulation tight and the bass deepens plenty. Plastic clamps work well and easy to use. Lots of speaker for the price.

    CONS: Plastic frame, other manufactures do the same @ 4-5x prices, only 4 screws support the woofer, lack of vibration separation of crossover board (add your own tweaking dampening), basic quality capacitors or resistors, etc. To be critical Not recommended for strict audio only listening app, get the 3 way speaker option. IMHO, all 2 way in-walls can be rated 4-5 for acoustic or multi-layer mixes, better for classical, but better still for rap, dance. Weakens show in mid-to-loud audio apps.

    Great speakers for the money!
    I purchased these speakers strictly by going off Monoprice reviews, something I normally would never do. However, the low price enticed me and the risk was minimal so I decided to go for it. I purchased 2 sets (for a total of 4 speakers) to replace my 10 year old ceiling mounted speakers with 5-1/2" woofers.

    These 8" Monoprice speakers are very well constructed with hefty magnets and the sound produced is very full with excellent clarity. The ability to rotate and position the tweeters makes a big difference in audio heard and should be set accordingly for your listening position.

    I was looking hard at the Polk RC85i, but for 1/3 the price, these Monoprice speakers have fit the bill perfectly. I am extremely happy with the sound of these paired up with a Pioneer Elite VSX-01TXH. No regrets whatsoever. Thanks Monoprice!

    Very Good Speakers.. sound great
    I purchased these units part of a 7.1 setup including ceiling speakers 8" of the same type. A year later, I have completed the home theater and can give a proper review.

    These speaker are great and can handle the power. They produce great mid base and clear highs and mid. The highs can be adjusted depending on room size and the tweeter can be moved to deflect off the wall. I would recommend these speakers as well as the ceiling ones.

    I painted the grill to match the wall... looks great. (Use a firm sponge type mini paint roller and apply up to 3 coats) if not spray in on or you will get very frustrated as the little holes plug up if you use a paint brush or cloth roller.

    PROS: - Good Quality
    - Loud and efficient speakers for the price
    - easy to install

    CONS: - Install and remove a couple of times and installing them was ok.. however remove them more then that and you will invent new swear words because the screws and clips become jammed.

    I will buy these again as I slowly expand my theater room. I will buy nothing else. They sound BETTER than a friend's $600/pair "name brand" speakers. My only concern (not a complaint, a concern) is that the instructions could be much more inclusive, not necessarily for installation, that is pretty straight forward, but the instructions "recommend painting the speakers prior to installation". I have never done this before, so I had to google how to do so, and the one I beta tested looks HORRIBLE. Note to all readers...DO NOT TRY TO PAINT THE SPEAKER GRILLS UNTIL YOU THOROUGHLY RESEARCH HOW TO DO SO. AIRBRUSHING WITH THIN PAINT SEEMS TO BE WHAT IS REQUIRED. If you choose to paint at a later time, it is very easy to uninstall the speakers, paint the grill and the edges, and re-install. Now that I learned about the painting issue the hard way, I would STILL buy them again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    PROS: These speakers surpassed my expectations. These are fantastic, and were very easy to install. Most importantly, they sound phenomenal.

    CONS: Instructions could be more inclusive about painting the speakers

    Comparison with bookshelf speakers
    I've always heard even the best in-wall speakers don't sound as good as mediocre bookshelf speakers because the baffle (air space behind the driver) can't be tuned. I don't have any other in-wall speakers for comparison, but here's my comparison of these Monoprice speakers with a pair of inexpensive Boston Acoustics HS60 bookshelf speakers (6 1/2" woofer, 1" dome tweeter).

    Bass: The bass on the Boston's sounds punchier and tighter, but this could be because the ported enclosure is giving them a mid-bass peak. It's entirely possible the 8" Monoprice woofers with their "sealed" enclosure (the wall space) are providing better low-end extension. In that case I may be subjectively preferring the more forward bass of the Boston's. (The only way to know for sure would be to check them with a microphone and frequency analyzer.)

    Midrange/treble: Somewhat to my surprise, the treble on the Boston's is what really sets them apart from the Monoprice speakers. By comparison, the high end rolls off so sharply on the Monoprice speakers that it even affects vocals (leaving them somewhat muffled). On the Boston's, vocals are more realistic and airy. Delicate high frequency sounds (e.g. shakers) are almost non-existent on the Monoprice speakers when directly compared to the Boston's.

    I'm somewhat surprised by these results. The biggest difference was in high frequency response, yet bookshelf speakers shouldn't have a significant advantage there because the baffle doesn't affect the tweeter. Possibly the Bostons' tweeters are simply better. (But, setting aside audiophile BS, how much should it cost to make a high-frequency driver that's reasonably accurate?) Removing the "dust shield" behind the grills on the Monoprice speakers helped improve the treble response somewhat. Pointing the adjustable tweeters downward also helped. But these tweaks only resulted in a marginal overall improvement. Note: The 3-position tweeter switch is set to "-0 db".

    Would other in-wall speakers sound better? I don't know. I hope someone will post a comparison. So far most of the reviews are from people who have only listened to these speakers by themselves (not in comparison to anything else).

    Would I purchase these again? Considering the price and the application I'm using them for, possibly. They're in a large bathroom where I often listen to talk (NPR, podcasts, etc.). Despite what you might conclude from the comments above, vocals are reproduced very intelligibly. I think that's because there is no mid-bass boominess to muddy them up. Having said that, if I purchase another pair of in-wall speakers I will probably check out what Boston Acoustics has to offer. I'd also be curious to know how the 3-way version of the Monoprice speakers might compare.

    PROS: Clean appearance, high-quality construction and easy installation.

    CONS: Somewhat muffled sound.

    Just do it!
    I've been living in a 2 channel world since we moved into this house almost a year ago. I was concerned about pairing these up with my JBL HLS 820 mains and HLS Center due to the horn tweeters they feature. I couldn't bring myself to drop $400 each on Klipsch horn tweetered in walls, so I went quite the opposite route and ordered a pair of the 8" 2 ways to go in my living room set up as rears.

    They seem to be fairly well made, on par with Polk and Infinity's I had worked with or sold in the past. Nice big magnet, strong kevlar driver, and a directional tweeter. For $50 a pair, they really looked much better than I had figured they would.

    Couldn't go through the attic, so we came up from the crawl space. Got to use a 5' flex bit to drill our speaker line hole to the crawlspace, which was fun. One thing worth noting about these speakers is that they are deep. They are a solid 3.5" deep, and in my application the magnet was pretty snug.

    I've got them hooked up through a Onkyo TX-SR606, which utilizes Audysey for calibration. But first I did hook them up as mains to give them a listen. I had my quipment torn down so I just hooked an ipod up via the headphone out into the AUX in on the Onkyo. The sounds quality was much better than I had anticipated. Had a much fuller and richer sound than expected. The tweeter does have a switch to add or subtract the trebble level, which I chose to leave flat. I listened to a wide variety of music from Coltrane to Dr Dre to Hendrix to Weezer. They did a great job with the Coltrane and Hendrix and an acceptable job with the Dr Dre and Weezer. I then hooked all my gear back up and broke out the mic for Audysey.

    Once I had it set up I tossed in Avatar on Blu Ray. First off, I can't believe I went this long without surround. Second, I can't believe these speakers were $50 a pair!

    They really did mesh well with the other speakers in the room. Considering you can outfit a entire 7 channel theater with these for under $200 is amazing to me. I've been toying with the idea of surround for the bedroom, and I think these just may have made the decision that much easier.

    In closing, buy without fear. They don't come out of the box as a cheaply made speaker, they present themselves as though they were meant to cost four times or more, than they do.

    PROS: Strong build
    Good sound quality
    Great price

    CONS: May be too deep for some applications

    Great product for the price, but has some faults
    These speakers would have gotten a 10, had the drywall fasteners been a bit better designed. Actually this is the only flaw with this product. Lets start with the good first These speakers are well made, can accept 14gauge speaker cable, have directional tweeters and are an outstanding price. Monoprice included a wall cut out template and grill remover. These are a huge help.

    The bad These speakers are a bit big and clumsy. Not a problem if youre installing these on an internal wall. The problems arise when you install these in a wall that is an outside wall to your house (that is, a wall with insulation). Since these speakers are so big, you have to be careful where you choose to install them. Studs on exterior walls are not always 16 apart. And this is where the drywall fastener issue comes in. If you try to install these speakers in between two studs on an exterior wall, you will find that you will have a fitment issue. The issue is with the drywall fasteners. They are designed to only be positioned in one way. So if you need to attach this in the up position (like in tight places), you may not be able to. This is my main complaint with this product. I fixed this by just using a dremel to cut off the ends of the fasteners.

    I have these speakers mated with an Onkyo 706b (they are surround speakers) and it actually sounds great. You really cannot beat the price.
