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.

PROS: Great looking...Haven't had them long enough to talk about sound quality.
CONS: Prep before you install
Only problem, as with all Alpha series, is the mounting devices. The 'dogs' used to connect to drywall get hung-up easily. It is a minor problem in the big picture but it would make all of my reviews 5-stars instead of 4.

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)
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.
