Caliber In Ceiling Speakers 6.5 Inch Fiber 2-Way (pair)
Monoprice brings custom in-wall speakers to new levels of afforability with our line of Monoprice Brand Premium in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. These new high fidelity units deliver the high quality craftsmanship and construction you've come to expect from Monoprice brand products at a fraction of what you would expect to pay for them retail.
In-wall and in-ceiling speakers allow you to expand your listening environment throughout your entire home as well as remove the clutter of giant box speakers giving you back your living space. In either case it's a win-win situation for those who desire high fidelity and those who put emphasis on decor.
DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber cones are light weight yet extremely rigid providing very precise audio with minimal distortion normally caused by cone flex. Our Kevlar® speakers are matched with an equally precise silk membrane dome tweeter made of titanium fiber thread and a high quality crossover network to ensure high fidelity and low distortion. The lower distortion levels allow the speaker to be driven harder and handle higher peak power levels. The main benefit our Kevlar® speakers are the clarity and fidelity at which they produce audio.
Note that you can improve the bass response and overall sound quality of in-ceiling speakers by using an enclosure. The Monoprice In-Ceiling Back Enclosure (PID 11941) is designed for use with this speaker.
- Light and rigid, well balanced, yellow woven Kevlar® Cone Woofers for distortion free reproduction
- Oversized magnets for more impactful bass
- Precision titanium silk membrane dome tweeters for sweeter highs and pure sonic clarity
- Pivoting tweeters allow you to point the acoustics to the prime listening position for a more accurate and immersive sonic experience
- Adjustable crossover switch allows you to match the speakers to the sonic characteristics of your listening environment and the location in which you place them
- 60W nominal and 120W maximum power handling capacity ensure that these drivers won't be overdriven or easily blown out
- 8 ohms standard impedance ensure they can be safely driven by even the most modest home theater receivers

1st my system:
speakers: B&W 603s3, LCR s3, 601s3, and Velodyne HGS 10.
components: Rotel 1066rsp processor, RMB985 amp, Sony 222es sacd, Panasonic 85 bluray player.
wires: Kimber Kable Hero connectors and Tara labs RSC Prime Bi-wired.
ok now that's out the way perhaps it gives a better understanding on my ears..lol
listening: 1st off these speakers need atleast 60hrs of break-in period, hi's sound crisp and bass sounds pretty good for a wall mount speaker what they lack is depth and a dynamic response. NOW i don't use these as my main speakers, I use these as my rear speakers for movies and they do the job well!
These speakers are excellent for home theatre use and as additional speakers to be put around the house as zones. The build quality is excellent and the installing them was a breeze. I highly recommend these speakers and you won't be disappointed!
PROS: easy to install, quality, and price!
I hooked it up to A niles 1230 amplifier which is capable of setting each channel as L, R, or L-R. I compared one vs. the other both hooked up mono. I then set one to L and one to R and would raise and lower the volume between the two speakers. Both were very loud.
It is a very tough call. Im not an audiophile, but the 3 way seemed slightly fuller. The cheaper 2 way speakers seemed to have better highs. We kept playing both back and forth to try to determine which sounded the better if there was no difference in price and found it very difficult to decide. They are both excellent speakers and an excellent value. Im still not clear which sounds better. They just sound different, so I think Ill have to go with the 2 way for the rest of the house just because its less expensive.
I have an extensive background in custom car audio, worked in mobile audio engineering-tech, home theater installation and have modified many, many crossover networks.
These speakers are well built but the sound quality is lacking.
Upper mids are attenuated, at 3k-5k, as well as bass response below 150hz.
I was going to rebuild the crossovers, but settled on a fairly simple solution.
My testing was done with a 33 band RTA with pink noise as well as music.
Modify only the low-pass filter on the larger mid range speaker!
Cut one lead on the capacitor rendering it inoperable, bypass the coil with one short piece of wire soldered at the input of the coil to the output of the coil. This will totally bypass the lo-pass crossover. The highs in the mid range will now rolloff as a function
of the mids natural rolloff and the speaker's inductance.
In my opinion............
Not elegant but the RTA curve and subjective sound quality were vastly improved.
This will not approach the inherent lack of bass, it can only be solved with the addition
of a dedicated low frequency driver.
There is now a slight bump at 3k-5k, a more lively sound.
I have had these speakers for 4 months running like this, no problems.
If done as prescribed, mod is totally reversible
I just put a set or 4103/6.5" into another large room, and while they are just as well balanced and clear as the first set, my mistake was not going with the 8's for more room filling sound.
Luckily, that's the perfect excuse to put these 6.5's into a smaller area, and order 8's for the large room as I should have in the first place!
If there's a better value out there, I'm not sure where you'd find it.
PROS: affordable. Kevlar woofers. Silk dome tweets.
CONS: grill a little hard to get off. limited swivel on tweets.
have to buy 6 speakers for a 5.1 system.
Monoprice has become my 1st stop shop for any electronic gadgets / accessories.
PROS: Excellent product quality and sound is perfect for house rooms.
PROS: Cost and sound.
CONS: They didn't install by themselves?
PROS: Everything about them is perfect.
