Alpha In-Wall Speaker Center Channel Dual 5.25-Inch Carbon Fiber 2-way (single)
This carbon fiber in-wall speaker is the perfect combination of performance and style. The use of carbon fiber for the woofers means that the speaker can hit harder, go lower, and handle more power with significantly less distortion than conventional drivers. The silk dome tweeter produces clean, crisp, and clear highs and mids. You can fine tune the blend of sound using the built-in high frequency attenuator in case the sound is too bright. The metal grille can be painted to match your walls and attaches easily using magnets.
Louder with Less Power | Higher Power Handling with Less Distortion
Control High Frequencies | Easy to Install | Use up to 10AWG Cable
Dual 5.25-inch Carbon Fiber 2-way In-Wall Speaker with Magnetic Grille
Sound Quality: Life is too short for speakers that don't sound great! We believe that the whole point of listening to music is to hear it as the artist intended. Our engineers and audio experts have spent countless hours listening to and comparing various speakers until we were satisfied we had found models that fit our demanding standards.
Style: While Monoprice believes in function over form, there is nothing wrong with having speakers that look good, too. This in-wall speaker helps reduce clutter by getting your speakers off the floor or bookshelves, and the magnetic metal grille can be painted to match your wall, so it virtually disappears from view.
Simplicity: Installation is as easy as it can get. Use the included cutout template to mark your wall, make the cut, then using only a screwdriver, secure the speaker to the wall with the easy install mounting tabs.
Carbon fiber gives you higher sensitivity, deeper bass, and higher power handling.
Carbon fiber woofers are lighter and stiffer than conventional materials used in speaker manufacturing. The speaker cones are more sensitive to power, which means that you get more volume using less power. Additionally, the stiffer material means deeper bass and higher power handling, with significantly less distortion.

Questions and Answers
Our knowledgeable Technical Support staff would be more than happy to assist. Thank you
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.
For $60 am I getting a $10,000 speaker? Not by any means. However, you are getting a setup that 99.99% of the population would be perfectly happy with. Only real audiophiles would find something not to like about them. For those of us looking to get very good surround sound, good for music sound, and not take out a second mortgage, you can't go wrong with this line of speaker.
I have only had them in for a day. Most BluRays are still packed away. I did get Transformers (1st one) and Aladdin in. You can hear the sound going around the rear speakers perfectly fine. Listening to the Genie sing, you can hear all of the background sounds as well. I was very impressed.
PROS: Price Ease of Installation sound quality from an inexpensive speaker
CONS: The middle wall post next to the speaker post makes it difficult to attach the wire. It is not difficult, but it is just a stupid design location.

I decided to shop around for in wall and ceiling speakers and was recommended by a friend to checkout Monoprice.
I did my homework and decided to purchase the Alpha in ceiling speakers. I hired a professional to install them and coordinate with my existing pre-wired lines. They have been installed and I have watched a movie since in surround sound. It was a wonderful experience and felt like a theater instead of my family room.
I`m extremely satisfied and would highly recommend Monoprice and Alpha in ceiling speakers.

Found this speaker on Monoprice and took the chance that it would work. Not only did it fit my limited vertical space with a little behind the wall structural adjustments, the sound is good from the system and it seems to blend in nicely with existing wall speakers. It has been in use for a few days now and we will see how the speaker holds up in the future.
I am not an audiophile, so the satisfaction with sound quality may not be the same for others. Worked well for me in my existing system. As I move on to refinish my basement, I will use Monoprice speakers instead of the high priced high end speakers for that system.
Installation of speaker was easy, I added center lines on the template to aid in making the opening in the wall.
While the grill of the speakers is not a match to existing speakers, I am contemplating painting this grill to match wall color.
PROS: Low cost,
Ease of installation
CONS: No centerline markings on cardboard template.
