Amber In-Wall Speaker 6.5-inch 3-way Carbon Fiber Column with Ribbon Tweeter (each)
In-wall speakers are the ideal combination of sound quality and styling. Rather than cluttering the room with large box speakers trailing speaker wires, the speakers are virtually invisible, while filling the room with high fidelity audio. Featuring a removable and paintable grille, this 3-way speaker uses a carbon fiber woofer cone with rubber surround for deep, impactful bass, a carbon fiber mid-range driver for tight, articulate mids, and a ribbon tweeter for sweeter and smoother high frequencies.
Ribbon Tweeter: A ribbon tweeter is composed of a very thin metal diaphragm suspended in a powerful magnetic field. It is capable of very high acceleration, which means that it is very responsive to musical nuances. Ribbon tweeters have a wide horizontal dispersion and a very tight vertical dispersion, thereby increasing the size of the audio "sweet spot".
Carbon Fiber Drivers: Carbon fiber is a very lightweight and rigid material, making it ideal for speaker drivers. The lightweight ensures that the driver can respond quickly to musical nuances, while the additional rigidity results in improved accuracy and a flatter frequency response. The result is a is deep, impactful bass, and tight, articulate mids, without a hint of distortion.
High Frequency Attenuator: The high-frequency attenuator can reduce high frequencies by 0, -3, or -6 dB. This allows you to fine tune the speaker's high-end response to compensate for a particularly "bright" listening environment.
Magnetic Grille: The removable grille attaches to the speaker using powerful magnets, to ensure that the powerful bass does not cause rattle. The grille is paintable and features a slim bezel, allowing it to more easily blend into your home's decor.
Higher sensitivity, deeper bass,
and higher power handling
Carbon fiber is a lighter and stiffer material than what is normally used in speaker drivers. This means that the drivers can respond quickly to musical nuances, are more accurate, and have a flatter frequency response. The result is deep, impactful bass and tight, articulate mids, without a hint of distortion.

Hope this helps.
On another note, does anyone use these speakers (15700) as left front and right front speakers? I want to get these but am concerned they will overpower the alphas I will be using everywhere else. It would be great to know all the dimensions (depth included) of the upcoming ribbon speakers so that I can make sure I future proof my setup and have my contractors allow for them. Thanks!
The use of the Amber 15700 with Alpha surrounds seems to be a pretty popular formula. If you scroll through the reviews you will see quite a few folks doing just that.
I have 2 of the 3-ways mounted as front L & R. I don't see why you can't use one as your center. Sound-wise, it makes sense. However, you need to consider the fact that the long dimension, mounted horizontally, will exceed the typical spacing between 2 wall studs. So, if your wall has typical framing, you can't mount it without a structural header etc. I suspect this is why most center spkrs are external, not wall mounted.
Also what's the deal with what appears to be a capped port/vent at the bottom of the speaker? Is that meant to be uncapped if the speaker is mounted with a back box?
I have installed like 3-4 pairs.
Monoprice has a 4 inch pair of speakers that have different tweeter but has the same grills it what I used for a center on two different installs. Sounded great. Been installing for 15+years
PROS: Great Speakers, Great Price, Look beautiful.
CONS: Shipping is higher than it should be. (Not really a default of the speakers, but I wish Monoprice would have better shipping rates)

Also, on one of the two of these i bought the mounting tabs that are inside the wall broke during installation. I mounted 4 speakers and only this one broke, so I'm guessing it is defective. I'm requesting a replacement so hopefully I can give these a higher recommendation. They really are great little speakers for the price. I have them in a fairly large room with vaulted ceilings and they do sound absolutely fantastic. 5 stars for sound and looks. 4 stars for mounting. Very disappointed I'll have to return one speaker and have to live with a hole in the wall until I can get a replacement.
