    Do these work with the 6.5 inch 3 way, PID 7605?

    ABS Back Enclosure (Pair) for PID 4103, 6.5in Ceiling Speaker
    ABS Back Enclosure (Pair) for PID 4103, 6.5in Ceiling Speaker
    BEST ANSWER: Yes
    I have a 7.1 setup now and looking to upgrade to 9.1 or 11.1. Can these speakers be used for front and rear presence speakers in the ceiling or should I use a smaller speaker?
    Stephen B on Feb 16, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your interested in our ceiling speakers. This 3-way speaker will work very well for your presence speakers. The 3-way design will give very good clarity and articulation when the bullets start flying.
    Can this speaker work as a center channel speaker in the ceiling? Is anyone using it for the center channel/voice application?
    Jamie A on Jun 17, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I would much rather have a left and right channel handling something as important as dialogue. Currently my setup has the 3 way Caliber in wall speakers on either side of the TV as the left and right channels. I used 4 of these Ceiling speakers as the surround channels and it sounds great. I really feel that too much emphasis is put on a centre channel these days. Just my $0.02.
    Can your inceiling speakers work in a high ceiling living room?

    My ceiling is 20 ft. high.
    Faisal S on Feb 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thanks guys, did you guys all use these in the high ceiling? Richard, did you use it in the 20 feet high ceiling and found it not working for you?
    Is there a back cover available for this speaker? Product # 7605
    Google E on May 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I bought two pair of these a few months ago. There were no back enclosures made specifically for this speaker at that time. Be aware they are quite large, 12" diameter mounting hole, plus another inch required for mounting tabs.
    Do I need to purchase a mounting kit to install these in the ceiling of a 1-story home?
    Jason J on Mar 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Nope, the speaker has tabs that swingout pinching it between the drywall. Use the included template to trace a pattern on the ceiling. Cut the pattern , connect your speaker wires and place the speaker in the hole. Tighten the tabs with a screwdriver and your set
    Would it be possible to install these speakers in a drop ceiling or should I be looking for smaller/lighter speakers for such a situation?
    Ryan F on May 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, however you need to do something to take the weight off the ceiling tile. I usually get some half inch plywood and cut it to lay in the ceiling grid above the tile and mount the speaker through both.
    Is the grill magnetic?
    A shopper on Dec 4, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: This speaker has a press fit speaker grill that holds firmly to the speaker. It also has a removal tool that comes with it to remove the grill from the speaker. I have not had problems with these grills. The finish is tight and true.
    What range of amp wattage (continuous/rms) do you recommend for each size of these concentric speakers?
    New User U on Jan 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. The nominal input power (RMS) is 80 watts, I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us!
    would this 3 way speaker do better than a 2 way for a center speaker in ceiling?
    A shopper on Dec 2, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, either pair will work great. But if you do not have a dedicated sub, I would use the 3 way for the best sound clarity. Thank you for your question and I hope that clarifies it for you!

    Good speakers, and not just "good for the price"
    I'm also posting this identical review in the 6816 speaker section...

    So I've been building a budget home theater for some time, the idea is to find things clearanced, floor models, or reasonably priced.

    I bought a Monoprice Sub and was happy with the quality and sound so after much review, I bought the 6816s as my front and the 7605s for the rear. The 6816 went in the wall flanking my 100 inch screen while the 7605 are 23 feet away mounted in the ceilings. The 6317 is under the screen as my center channel. All are being driven by a Denon 2313 (bought as a 1 month old floor model at Best Buy for $400).

    My take? The 6816s sound great. I'm not going to preface it with the "for the money" because a pricetag doesnt qualify my standard of what sounds good and what doesnt.
    The room doesnt have alot of furniture or carpet in it yet so the midrange is a bit high but I believe once those items are in and with a bit of tuning the sound will greatly improve. I isololated each set of speakers and made the following observations: The 6816s are perfectly suited for front use, they have the necessary upper and midrange to hear all of the effects and sound good with music. The bass response is good to the point that I had to tighten up a metal stud that they were vibrating in the wall. The 7605'have much more bass to them (could be the ceiling mount, my basement has prefab composite rafters which give alot of airspace above and around the speakers) and may sound better overall. The center channel does well with dialog as it is intended. The sub sounds good and a 2nd with the crossovers set to a different range may really fill in the sound. Overall I'm very happy. I bought a set of Bose AM5 series II 25 years ago that these speakers replaced. My cousin was the manager at Silo and his cost plus 10% on these was $400 and they sold for $900 so that gives you an idea of markup (nearly 300%) on speakers. Cut out a few steps in the distribution line and you can sell a qualitiy product at a good price.

    One trick on the install, to remove the grills put the pull wire tool in parallel to the base and pull, dont try pulling from the part of the grill facing you, its hard to remove that way. One quick pull and its out.

    PROS: Really EZ to install
    Good bass response
    Good wire connector setup


    CONS: Big and heavy, have the room to needed behind and to the sides.

    A lot of sound
    I purchased these speakers for a buddy who was looking for something in-ceiling, affordable, and able to hit a broad frequency range. These speakers did not let me down! The sound was very clean and room filling. The additional driver helped to fill out the bottom end without sounding like they are trying to be a larger size. The speakers are being used as stereo sound only in this case, but i wouldn't hesitate to use them in a 5.1 or 7.1 setup. The size of these speakers are very impressive. It is the only drawback i have about them as well, being that it was difficult to find desired placement due to the fact that there isn't much room to play with when mounting in between 16" on center studs.

    PROS: Good Bass
    Clear Voice Reproduction
    Great Quality Speakers
    Clean and Impressive Appearance

    CONS: A little tough to mount speakers in desired locations
    July 26, 2011
    Great speakers.
    Please consider supplying your speakers with mounting system your subwofers come with. Nice metal frame to fit in the opening, long sturdy screws make the installation a breeze instead of gym workout.

    PROS: Great sound, beautiful micro-flange, good price

    CONS: Well, the first thing you'll see is the size. How for the love og God are these 6 1/2" speakers. They are 12" speakers, so make sure they' will fit in place before you buy.

    Next thing is.... The clamps. My ceiling is plastered with two layers of gypsum board each 3/4" thick. There was no way the clamps could have accomodated. I had to turn them upside down, that got me some clearence.

    But since I unscrew the screws and then installed the speakers to make sure they fit, then took them down and finaly tried to install them for the last time, the screws ate up the plastic in the clamps got loose an were not engaging the clamps anymore. Ohhh was that the pain! Literally. It felt like I was lifting 100lb after some time.

    Well, it is installed now, so all is good.

    Good but nor great
    These speakers get loud and are clear but you have to be able to tune them perfectly for your needs. Many said they are too big but if you live in a one story house they shoudld fit fine in the celing. While they are larger in size, the design is excellent and well thought out. Some said you could use these as a center channel speaker which i did. It is not great for a center channel speaker for ordinary daily watching. If the front channel speakers are playing background noise it is hard to hear dialog of from the center channel speaker because it becomes distorted. I would suggest getting a different speaker for a center channel that is wall mounted rather than inceiling mounted. I did not have that option as i had to mount all my speakers in the ceiling. Over all they are great speakers and for the price you will not find better.

    PROS: Loud and Clear
    January 29, 2013
    Much bigger than expected
    Had ordered these as rear surrounds to compliment the 6 1/2 inch dual woofer in wall speakers. Had read other reviews that they were snug in a 16 on center ceiling joist, but thought that I would be okay. After getting them, noticed that they were VERY large and got kind of worried since I was planning on installing these in the ceiling near a wall which was at the exterior end of my house. After getting in the attic and realizing I did not have enough room for them, I ordered the round 5 1/4 kevlar speakers to handle my surround duties.

    I re-purposed these in another room as zone 2 (from the reciever, Denon AVR-1912) and couldnt be happier.

    Great speaker, just make sure they'll fit where youre trying to put em!!!

    PROS: Sound great, easily compare sound to speakers 10x the price.

    CONS: Be aware where you plan to mount these, they are HUGE!
    December 8, 2011
    Awesome
    I mounted these as surround speakers in the ceiling of my great room. They sound great. I was surprised how easy they were to mount. The flange covers a lot more than you would expect. It is only supper small on the front. the back side mounting whole is actually much smaller than the total diameter. This means your cutout circle's don't need to be exact. Very easy to mount and get a clean looking install.

    PROS: Great sound, much easier to install than expected.

    CONS: Price, they are a lot more expensive than the 7604s for the same drivers.
    September 3, 2013
    Ammmmmmazing sound
    People keep saying a con is they're too big. But I say go big or go home. I have a couple inches on their side of the joists. They sound amazing. They look great. Use a small spatula type device for patching walls to get in the grill when you're done.

    UK Installation
    5/5

    PROS: Great sounding, Meat Beat Big and Bouncy - a very good performance at the price point

    CONS: Grill could be easier to install, Costomer service for a UK customer was not great
    October 10, 2011
    5/5
    I built 18" x 22" x 9" back boxes around them in the attic and then packed insulation over/around the back boxes. They sound great and fill the whole room with sound (12' x 12' kitchen) without leaking sound from the attic to the outside of the house.

    PROS: They sound great after a few hours of burn in and look nice once painted and installed.

    CONS: They are larger than you might think! It can be difficult to place them where you want because of the size.
    October 27, 2011
    Fantastic
    Installed 2 speakers into older wood lath and plaster ceiling. 1.25" clamps barely fit! Used screw-down banana clips from monoprice on monoprice's 12 gauge in-wall speaker cable. Since the drivers are angled, took some doing to figure out how to direct the mid and highs into my space. Once I did they sound WAY better than I expected from in-ceiling speakers. We have a long narrow living room with an open kitchen on one end. With the speakers about 1/3 of the way into each end of the room and mids facing each other (space between speakers is same as ceiling height of 9') they sound amazing when you're between them. I have some floor standing 3-way NHT's and these approach their quality for 1/10th the price. When you move around the room the sound is ok, but as is to be expected from in-ceiling installation, it is more of an atmosphere sound than it is a focused stereo sound. One good thing about the angle of the drivers is that you can direct the mids and highs away from an area you might want quieter. For us that means you can have the house rocking, but still carry on a conversation in the kitchen only a few feet away.



    We have an open attic above with blown insulation, so I created a mesh enclosure over the speakers. Four "posts" of wood about 14" high screwed to the rafters then stapled some screen door mesh over them to keep the blown insulation out. Lastly, I rolled pieces of R30 fiberglass insulation (without paper backing) over the boxes. Assume this is helping fill out the sound, but haven't experimented without the insulation yet.



    DO NOT use a screw gun to tighten the clamps, you need to be able to feel them engage and they are plastic and deform/break pretty easily.



    Also, the switch on the speaker is used to dampen the tweeter in case they are too loud compared to the woofers. You can take off 3 or 6db of volume to try and balance them for your needs.



    I love these speakers and if you have the space for the 12" cutouts I highly recommend them.

    PROS: Sound is excellent, build is solid, connectors are much improved over my older 8" in-ceiling speakers from monoprice

    CONS: Heavy, clamps could be more robust, more clearance for the clamps to accommodate thicker materials would be better, some guidance as to how to position the angled tweeters and mid-range would be nice.
