Aria In Wall Speakers 6.5 Inch Polypropelene 2-way (pair)
Give your home theater a clean and professional appearance using these 6.5" 2-Way In-Wall Speakers from Monoprice!
These in-wall speakers feature a 6.5" polypropylene main driver combined with a 1" titanium silk membrane tweeter. The polypropylene construction resists the effects of moisture and mold, making them well-suited for humid locales. They handle a nominal 40 watts and a maximum of 80 watts. The 65 Hz ~ 20 kHz frequency response means that these speakers will handle low-frequency audio material as well as anything but a dedicated subwoofer.
- Precision molded, moisture resistant, polypropylene cone woofers with rubber surrounds for well defined mids and bass
- Titanium silk membrane dome tweeters for sweeter highs and pure sonic clarity
- Advanced, high capacity crossover network
- 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
- 40W nominal and 80W maximum power handling capacity
- 8 ohms standard impedance ensure they can be safely driven by even the most modest home theater receivers

I will not hesitate recommending these to friends and family and I will definitely be using them in the future.
PROS: -Great tonal balance
-Easy to install
-Adjustable tweeter padding
-Better than average crossover components
CONS: -Uninstalling can cause the plastic clips on end of screws to fall behind wall *BE CAREFUL to not knock the end caps off*
-No matched Center channel means you have to buy an extra set to use one as a center
The benefits of these over the kevlar are that these require less power and are lighter weight. I cannot comment on the sound quality vs eachother as I have not heard them side by side (although a friend of mine has the kevlar, I cannot notice a difference).
I am -not- using these speakers as a center channel though, and the center is where most of your discernible sound comes from, so keep that in mind.
These do come with some cons: first, he build quality of the frame - it's plastic and the plastic latches don't feel very sturdy, but they work. Also, the grill is very tight and snug, so getting the grill back in place was a pain, and I had to bend in the back flange of each side of the grill to get it to slip back in without feeling like I was going to push the speaker through the wall. Lastly, there's a slight popping noise when a signal initially passes through to the speakers - I only attribute it to these speakers because I never heard it with my old speakers in the same receiver, although it's possible that, because of my thicker gauge speaker wire, I have somehow grounded the speaker wire to the board of the speaker. I have triple checked this (I have access to the unfinished room behind the speakers) and don't see it, but it's possible.
I recommend 16-gauge or thinner speaker wire. The 14-gauge I bought was a bit thick for the receptacles.
PROS: Inexpensive, lightweight, good sound, lower power requirements
CONS: Plastic frame, grill too snug, slight popping sound when initially receiving signal each use
PROS: High quality construction, solid and heavy, beefy and powerful
CONS: They need to be installed
PROS: Great sound, easy install with basic wiring knowledge.. makes the livingroom look awesome!
