    Should I use this OR the newly-released Alpha In Wall Surround Speaker Dual 5.25 Inch Carbon Fiber 2-way Vari-Angled (Product # 13687)? I can't decide between these two for my front speakers as part of a 5.1 home theater setup.

    I live in a small apartment (1,066 sq ft) and the living room is rectangular in shaped, I am just not sure if angled front speakers work better here.

    Thank you in advance.

    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The differences between Kevlar and Carbon Fiber will be Kevlar will be lightweight and rigid. They will have great power handling, sound great and have a wide frequency response. Carbon Fiber speakers will also be lightweight and will have a better response and will be more durable. Both sound great, I feel you would be happy with either.

    Will the 8” version of this fit in 2x4 studs?
    A shopper on Sep 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I used these in walls framed with 2 x 4s.
    Can the Alpha 6.5" in wall speakers be installed in walls with un-faced insulation? Can the back of the speaker be in contact with wall insulation?
    Aaron F on Apr 9, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes. My speakers are mostly in exterior walls with blown-insulation.
    I have a 16' x 10' room I want to install these in. Would the 6.5" or 8" be better for this size of a room? I plan on ordering 2 fronts and 2 rears. Thanks in advance!
    Daniel R on Jul 24, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: The 8" woofer will produce lower bass frequencies. In theory, the 6.5" would produce higher mid-range frequencies. If you have a subwoofer, the need for the 8" woofers is diminished as the sub will produce the low frequencies. I have several pairs of the 8" speakers and subwoofers in two different rooms. I bought one pair to try and ended up ordering more. i'm really happy with them.
    Are these good for a dolby Atmos set up?
    Seat S on Aug 21, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I use them as my front speakers and 6" round as my Atmos speakers. These will work well but rectangular speakers may look odd in the ceiling. So I'd go with the Alpha round speakers for the ceiling. But that's up to you.
    Is there an enclosure available to suppress sound from the back side?
    New User U on Aug 25, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this in-wall speaker. We do not offer enclosures for any of our in-wall speakers at this time.
    Should I use this newly-released Alpha In Wall Surround Speaker Dual 5.25 Inch Carbon Fiber 2-way Vari-Angled or the Alpha In Wall Speakers 8 Inch Carbon Fiber 2-way (Product # 13682)? I can't decide between these two for my front speakers as part of a 5.1 home theater setup.

    Great speakers, easy to install.
    I've been looking for a great set of in-wall speakers and after trying these, I have to say that I'm very pleased with them. They were easy to install and provide great sound quality. After two weeks of plenty of music and home theater use, I'm still happy on all fronts and will definitely choose again for other rooms. I have also tried a few other popular brands, but these stand out in sound quality and also build quality.

    PROS: Magnetic grill is high quality than typical in-wall speaker grill
    Great sound
    well made

    CONS: none yet

    Awesome
    For the price.......you cant beat it. Very well made, easy to install and the sound is amazing!! I wish I bought a 5th for my center channel. Probably will order one!! Carbon fiber speaker for this price!!!!

    PROS: easy install and sound amazing

    CONS: Only sold in pairs
    March 11, 2016
    Great Value
    Still in the break-in phase, but initial tests are fantastic.

    All the specs, for the price, cannot be beat. Super happy.

    PROS: Great value

    CONS: static tweeter. (doesn't point)

    Spectacular speakers
    These speakers are spectacular. I have two pairs -- one pair in my living room, and another pair in my bedroom. They are WAY better than the Caliber speakers, which I used for 8 years in both locations. I consider Alpha in-wall speakers to be a bargain.

    I have Denon AVR-S930H receivers.

    Great stuff!
    I've purchased other brands before, for my previous home, and they were a good quality speaker (can't remember the brand) that sounded great. These sound just as good if not better and also seem to be of greater quality. The magnetic grills are AWESOME and so are screw tabs on the back end of the speaker. Highly recommend!

    Great in wall speaker
    I purchased these after messing up a previous install. I'd installed all my prior speakers in the ceiling and it'd made it sound like a diety was talking to me for movies. So decided to just leave the speakers in the ceiling and add these to the wall. I did move the center channel. These speakers rocked. It made a big difference getting the front speakers actually in front of me instead of above me. Don't make my mistake. The quality of them was great with a solid feel. The magnetic covers worked great and fit perfect. I'm probably going to paint them because they stand out a little on the wall.
