PROS: Excellent sound quality for in-wall speakers. Great mid-range. Pleasant/clear upper range (without sounding fatiguing). Unreal value.
CONS: Wall mount brackets aren't as nice as some other in-walls I have had.
I found that by turning the mounting screws into the plastic ears that mount the speakers in the wall, prior to installation, made for a smoother install. I would hold the ear in my hand, turn the screw in a few turns and then back it out before I placed it in the wall. This made for a much smoother install. Also, I was able to paint the grills to match my wall with a sponge. I cut interior latex with a little bit of water to thin it out, then I used a drywall sponge to dab on the paint. I was able to paint four grills in ten minutes without clogging up any of the holes. Worked like a charm...Hope this helps...
PROS: Great Value
On a side note, I ran the speaker wire down the wall to behind the baseboard (i have a 4" tall baseboard) and i ran all the wires into my media closet. This worked out quite well and allowed for in-wall installation where the attic couldn't be accessed above.
PROS: The mids are warm, the highs are crisp and it can handle my 1008 quite well. I have only hooked these up as surround channels though, and haven't ran them hard like main speakers.
CONS: I wasn't able to take the speakers out once they were installed.
PROS: Extremely well built. The first thing I thought of when picking them up was B&W (google it if you don't know what it is). They sound fantastic. Super easy to install (just miss the studs in the wall). Did I mention how well they are built?
CONS: Absolutely none.
PROS: Sound. Build Quality.Appearance. value
CONS: Mounting hardware just OK
PROS: Excellent value
Very good home-theater quality
Extremely easy to install using the provided template
CONS: Hi-freq reproduction comes up a bit short
Compared to other 'inexpensive speakers' the arms that hold the speaker in place work much better and I didn't have to solder the speaker wire to the speaker.
The provided piece of cardboard doubles as a cut out pattern and a board to cover the speaker while you paint the trim, if you're so inclined.
It isn't too difficult to paint the grill, if you're careful and patient.
I couldn't be happier with the results.
PROS: Great construction
Provides template for cut out and a paint guard to paint trim without painting speaker
PROS: * Easy installation
* Sound great
CONS: No gripes about these speakers - just a observation. Monoprice doesn't have a center-channel speaker that matches (in terms of style, rating and impedance) these speakers. Their 8ohm CC speaker has the narrow flange and is only rated 80W. I'm looking for at least 100W (although 150W would be nice), with the large (1 inch) flange - most 5.1 sources have the majority of the sound on the center channel (dialogue, etc).
PROS: Inexpensive but not cheap
Easy to Install
Sound is fantastic
CONS: Painting the speaker grills to match interior wall was a challenge.
PROS: Easy installation. Sound awesome. Easy to paint.
CONS: Wall clips are a little flimsy
