    8-inch Carbon Fiber In-Wall Speaker

    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

    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.

    8-inch Carbon Fiber In-Wall Speaker

    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.

    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.

    A shopper on Sep 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I used these in walls framed with 2 x 4s.
    Is there an enclosure available to suppress sound from the back side?

    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

    CONS: Only sold in pairs

    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!

    Speakers
    The vibrating cone on speakers I've seen advertised are made from everything from paper to titanium. The carbon fiber cone in these speakers sounds fine to my ears and the speakers are reasonably priced. You will need to have pin connectors on your cables.
