Fs = resonant frequency of loudspeaker moving mass (in free air)
Re = electrical resistance of voice coil
Qts = total Q of loudspeaker ((Qms x Qes)/(Qms + Qes))
Qms = measurement of the control from the speaker's mechanical suspension system
Qes = measurement of the control from the speaker's electrical suspension system
Vas = equivalent air volume of moving mass suspension
Cms = stiffness of the mechanical suspension
BL = motor strength of the speaker
EBP = Fs / Qes
XMAX = maximum linear excursion
SD = surface area of the cone

Two could probally cover a two car garage but four will fill the space better
If your SB is hooked up digitally, toslink optical or HDMI, then it is designed to handle all of your audio program and adding speakers may cause more problems than it will fix.
If it is analog, dual RCA, then you can add one of our Unity series amplifiers in line from the TV then line out to your SB.
If you are looking for 3D immersive sound like Atmos™ or DTS-X™ then you will need to use a receiver with a digital out from the TV. The SB becomes a pseudo LCR + Sub. We offer several 3rd party branded AVRs. Looks like a Denon model is the least expensive.
I must say that speakers look great. They were packaged very tightly with a total of 3 boxes. Needless to say that none have come broken or have needed RMA.
Comes with speaker stencil to mark your drywall easily.
Speakers install easily into ceiling that uses 4-5 screws that have legs that pop out and tighten onto the inside of drywall.
Easy to use connectors to connect your audio wires. I used the closed type found here on Monoprice (currently on sale PID 9436)
I dont know much about sound but so far the two I have installed sound great (to me). Quality sound for quality price, you cannot find two in ceiling 8" speakers any where for this price, except MONOPRICE.
I have turned up the speakers to about 75% and they get loud (two in stereo) and I will not go louder until I fully break them in (which is recommended).
The shipping, ease of install, design quality, price and Monoprice warranty is enough for me to keep buying and recommending these to anyone.
Thank you Monoprice
