2-Way Active Wall Mount Speakers (Pair) - 25W - Black
Active loudspeakers eliminate the need for a separate power amp providing easier installation options than when using traditional passive speakers. They also have the advantage of having an amp that is custom tuned to the speakers they are driving.
This Monoprice powered stereo loudspeaker is just such a speaker set. It consists of an active loudspeaker with a custom amp built in for one channel and a passive slave loudspeaker for the other, to complete the stereo pair. It is an ideal choice for AV applications such as meeting rooms, multi-media usage, small presentations, and even as a powered speaker for your computer or portable music player. The active loudspeaker package comes with volume and tone controls and built-in a stereo Class D 2x 30 watt amplifiers. They are also magnetically shielded to prevent interference with other devices.

PROS: These speakers are very good for the money. Easy to set up and look good too.
CONS: The supplied speaker wire for the companion speaker is shorter than expected. Simple fix by buying the length of speaker cable you need.
PROS: Fantastic sound, tremendous price, comes with mounting hardware, looks great, easy to set up.
CONS: A bit hard to adjust controls that are on the back - especially if the mounting is in a corner. (But for me this is a small issue - once it is set - it is where I generally intend to leave it.
I do wish the controls were not on the back - I like to switch the speakers off when I'm not actively using them, and that requires me to fumble around the back looking for the power switch. But overall, I really like these speakers.
PROS: Price, build quality, sound
CONS: Location of controls
PROS: Very satisfied
PROS: These speakers are amazing for the price. We re-ordered 15 of them to outfit the classrooms in my school. Definitely worth it. The volume and range of sounds fills the room and more.
PROS: Loud without distortion. Good price. Many input options.
CONS: Bigger than expected.
PROS: These are a good sounding speaker with many input options and sturdy mounting bracket. A few people mentioned that they did not like phoenix style connector to the second speaker but being an installer I think they are great and pro quality. The low impedance balanced input is a great feature for professional installs and using the parallel button allows a mono signal (to the bottom balanced input) to go to both speakers.
CONS: I would have liked more detailed info with the speakers but Monoprice support will take care of any questions. Yes the supplied speaker wire for the second speaker is short 3ft but nice to have for testing. These speakers do not have any UL listing or equivalent safety rating so would not pass an electrical inspection even though they are well made.
The wall speakers are extremely clear and handle the mid/high sounds with ease.
In conjunction with the sub the sound quality is excellent. Best purchase from Monoprice yet!
PROS: Sound clarity
CONS: the bass in these speakers by themselves are not the best, but considering the price and size its not bad!
CONS: Connecting speaker wire between 2 speakers too short and they are a little bigger than expected.
This speaker set could be made very high performance with a little re-design. I have now put them in the original box and stored it away. Very disappointing.
PROS: Has control for volume, bass and treble. Separate on/off switch.
CONS: Speaker wires provided are too thin. Bass becomes muffled when the signal is strong. In my view, this could be due to saturation of output transformer at low frequency. If there are no transformer for this design, then it could be due to d.c. imbalance in the output circuit.
