Black Back Ceiling Speakers 8-inch 2-Way Fiber with Covered Crossover (pair)
In-ceiling speakers are the ideal combination of sound quality and styling. Rather than cluttering the room with large box speakers trailing speaker wires, the speakers are virtually invisible, while filling the room with high fidelity audio. Featuring a removable and paintable grille, this 2-way speaker uses a woofer cone made with DuPont™ Kevlar® fiber, with a rubber surround for deep, impactful bass, and a Silk Titanium tweeter for sweeter and smoother high frequencies. The crossover cover protects the speaker's electronics and driver from debris that can fall and damage components while installed in ceilings.
Protective Back Cover: The back cover protects the electronics and driver from debris that can fall and damage components while installed in ceilings.
Kevlar Woofer: The woofer is made from Dupont™ Kevlar® fiber with a rubber surround, which helps the speaker produce deep, impactful bass.
Silk Titanium Tweeter: The silk titanium tweeter delivers sweet and smooth sounding mids and highs, while the variable high-frequency attenuator can accommodate for particularly bright sounding rooms.
Magnetic Grille: The removable magnetic grille is paintable and features a slim bezel, allowing it to more easily blend into your home's decor.

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
