    5.25-inch Angled In-Wall Speaker

    This carbon fiber in-wall speaker is the perfect combination of performance and style. The use of carbon fiber for the woofer 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 adjustable angle feature allows you to point the speaker towards your ideal listening location, for optimal sound quality.


    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 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.

    5.25-inch Angled In-Wall Speaker

    Carbon fiber woofers are lighter and stiffer than conventional materials used in speaker manufacturing. The speaker cone is 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.

    Are there rough in boxes available for these speakers? Are there rough in boxes for ANY of Monoprice's in wall speakers?
    Christopher H on Jan 24, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for you question. There are some enclosures we offer but they will be only for specific in-ceiling speakers that we offer. We would not carry any rough in boxes for our in-wall speakers. I do apologize for any inconvenience.
    Will these fit in a standard wall with 2x4s? It appears the depth is 6", but not sure.
    Merrick M on Dec 14, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: no they will not, they are too deep to fit in a normal wall cavity that is framed with 2x4s. I have a rear wall with 2x4 framing and drywall on each side. I believe the mounting depth is 5.5" from what I recall. I used 1X4s to create a picture frame around each speaker, basically a rectangle of 1x4 mounted over another rectangle of 1x4 to mount these. A 1x4 is .75" deep, so doubled up it added 1.5" to an existing 3.5" cavity taken up by the 2x4 giving 5" plus the thickness of drywall so I had plenty of depth to mount them. If you are planing on cutting a hole in the drywall and mounting these they will not work but if you can build a simple frame and attach it to studs then allow the speaker to mount to the frame it will.
    Do these speakers include an enclosure, or do I need to provide one?
    peter t on Apr 3, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Most in wall speakers do not require an enclosure. They are made for free air movement no box behind the sheet rock. The speakers would do well to put a cover of some sort of them only to keep insulation basically blown in out of the speaker. I do not have any closure of mine and it sounds phenomenal I hope this helps
    Is this good to use for Left, Center, and Right?
    Andrew K on Feb 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hey Andrew...I bought this same speaker to use only for my center. The reason I chose this speaker for my center is due to the limited room that I had under or above my 70" TV. The only option I had was to go with a ceiling mount speaker above the TV. The best option this speaker offers is the way it can adjust 24 degrees in order to find the sweet spot in the main listening position. I would highly recommend this speaker for a center option if you're limited on mounting options. As far as the left and right goes, you could possibly use this speaker for a Dolby Atmos set up and aim the speakers toward the ceiling so that the sound seems to give you that raining down effect that Atmos seems to create. Other than that, i would look at other options for your left and right speakers...depending on your mounting capabilities. Hope this helps ya...
    can you install this speaker in the ceiling?
    A shopper on Nov 27, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Exactly where I installed mine and I couldn't be happier with my center channel. Much easier installing in the ceiling than in the wall.
    I'm planning to install the 7.2.4 atmos set up. The LCR will be these speakers. I haven't decided on the in-ceiling speakers yet but might be the 13687 model below. The new speakers that will be releasing in October, will the line up include a single 5.25" or 6.5" with the ribbon tweeter? The current 8" would be an overkill for the setup. And is October still the correct release date?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sound great, fit right between ceiling joists
    I needed ceiling speakers for surrounds in a 7,2 system, but had no wall space. I wanted angled speakers but needed better response and more precise aiming. These worked perfectly and as it turned out, fit exactly between the ceiling joists. I put fabric back hats on them from Parts Express so insulation didn't fill the woofers with fiberglass. Other than that, and painting the frills to match the ceiling color, that was it. I adjusted the speaker angle and set up the rest of the system. They work and sound great.

    Couldn't be happier-just what I needed
    Using this as an in-ceiling center channel, 2ft in front of the screen, 8ft from audience. Angled at 45degrees to the listener. Driving with a Onkyo 656 receiver with no issues. Sounds fantastic as my center channel! Crystal clear. Contrary to popular opinion the direction of the sound is not an issue and does not seem like it's coming from the ceiling. I did not have the option to mount in the wall, thus I am very happy that Monoprice offered this directional speaker.

    Decent Speakers, Misleading Info
    I've had these speakers for a week now, and have been using them for music and movies. So far, no complaints about the sound -- They sound fantastic for $50 speakers.

    The only complaint I have is that the description claims they come with a magnetic grill; They do not. This is disappointing because the rest of the speakers in this line come with magnetic grills, and these will not match the rest of my speakers.

    It's not a huge complaint (these will be front LR speakers in the ceiling), so it will barely be noticeable. And with the sound being as satisfactory as it is, I am ultimately happy with the purchase.

    Exceeded my expectations!
    wall real-estate was an issue for me, and with little kids in the house, I couldn't have any floor stand speakers. After installing these speakers I couldn't believe how good they sound! I highly recommend these!

    Bought this speaker for my center channel in my 7.2 surround set up and it sounds great. They are also easy to install

    So I set this speaker up as a central one, right above the TV, in the ceiling. Let me tell you...its sounds great! Worth the money, will not be disappointed. Just make sure you have a clearance to install, as I had half an inch between it and the upstairs insulation after installation...cutting it close.

    59 dollar speakers for real
    I got these about a week ago. Install was a little complicated to hook up the wire. It was also hard to hold the speaker to attach the speaker wire. Having said that. These sound open and airy for inwall speakers. They work great for my application where I had no choice but to do a ceiling mount center, The sound seems like it comes from the tv which is exactly what you want. I would recommend these to anyone who has a similar need. You will be impressed.

    Good but be careful if you paint
    I painted mine and had to scrap the paint off of the cover inserts to get the grill to install. Monkeyed around with it for 20 minutes.
