    Aria In-Ceiling Speakers, 6.5in Dual Input Stereo 2-Way (pair)

    These in-ceiling speakers feature a triple driver design with two pivoting titanium silk membrane dome tweeters for superior sonic performance. The woofer is constructed of an advanced glass composite to deliver high fidelity, distortion-free audio. Each speaker features two sets of speaker wire terminals, allowing you to wire each speaker for single-speaker stereo. When using single speaker stereo, you can achieve good stereo separation by pointing the tweeters in different directions to allow the sound to reflect around and fill the room.

    Features:

    • Exotic glass composite woofer for distortion free reproduction
    • Oversized magnets for more impactful bass
    • Dual precision titanium silk membrane dome tweeters for broad frequency spectrum, sweeter highs and pure sonic clarity
    • Pivoting tweeters allow you to point the acoustics to the prime listening position for a more accurate and immersive sonic experience
    • 40W nominal and 100W maximum power handling capacity provides ample headroom so these drivers won't be easily overdriven or blown out
    • 8 ohms standard impedance ensure they can be safely driven by even the most modest home theater receivers

    Installation Notes:

    1. To wire a speaker for single speaker stereo mode, keep the jumper set to the "Standard single speaker stereo" selection. Wire one of the sets of speaker terminals normally, with red/positive wired to red/positive. For the other set of speaker terminals, connect the wires in the reverse to a normal connection with the red/positive source connected to the black/negative terminal and the black/negative source connected to the red/positive terminal. This ensures that you will not exerience any phase cancellation of the audio from each driver.
    2. For normal operation, set the jumper to the "parallel connection" option. Wire the speaker normally, with red/positive going to red/positive and black/negative going to black/negative. It does not matter which of the two terminals sets you connect to the audio source.

    If I wire this for "Stereo" ie. left and right channel, each is an channel is an 8 ohm load?
    A shopper on Nov 22, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Yes that is correct, this speaker has a standard 8 ohms impedance for both left and right channels.

    Are these speakers considered to be fire retardant?
    James N on Nov 23, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Hello, thank you for your question. Unfortunately no, these in ceiling speaker are not specifically manufactured with a specific fire rating though the wiring inside them is. I hope this helps, and of course if you have any more questions feel free to contact us!
    Is this speaker suitable for bathroom? Not directly over the shower but 2-3 fee away.
    Krasimir J on May 11, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, that's exactly how I installed mine. Do note that the item Monoprice is selling here is for a PAIR of speakers, which is a little silly because the whole point of a stereo point speaker is that you only need one. Still $80 is a good price even if you only need one. I still have the second one from my pair sitting around waiting to find a place to be used. Tried selling it on Craigslist but nobody responded. Maybe I'll post it again at some point.
    I am only wanting to put one speaker in each room of my house. I was about to order the 2 way speaker pairs from this site for $49 before I realized there would be an issue with left and right channel hook ups. Someone told me to maybe just use single imput stereo speakers. From what I understand these speakers do both? Really confused on what I need. I hate to spend $100 a speaker for single ones, but I do have a mono switch on my amp, so would it be easy to merge 2 way speakers anyways?
    A shopper on Mar 14, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your interest in our ceiling speakers. The simple answer (and cheapest) is if your amp has a mono switch then engage that switch and sum both left and right together. You can buy the standard speakers and drive each with one channel of your amp. Both speaker will receive both left and right signals.
    If the amp's mono mode is a "Bridge Mono" then this will not work. You will need to get these stereo speakers. You will run left and right wire pairs to the first speaker then attach left and right to the second speaker in parallel. Your amp will need to be stable to 4Ω, should be if it will run bridge mono.
    If you still need further assistance contact customer service for further explanation.
    HI, are there new construction rough in rings for these speakers or any other monoprice in wall / in ceiling speakers? I am building a new house and the installer is insisting them.

    thanks

    Derek K on Jun 26, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Hey Derek, I asked the same question and never got a straight answer. I used the supplied template to make my own. Maybe calling them and asking a tech will get you a better answer. Hope that was some help.

    So do you need a 4 strand or 2 strand wire for these? Parallel sounds like 4 strand but it says it doesn't matter which pair goes to the source meaning the other pair does not go to the source it goes somewhere else? Like to the other spkr input? IDK
    Pierce M on Aug 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I used the two strand
    Would these benefit acoustically from an enclosure if I have them open to the attic? I have insulation behind them, but wondering if I should build an mdf enclosure...
    george p on Jul 31, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this ceiling speaker. A speaker enclosure will provide better bass response from the Arias. If the ceiling is over 12' high you may not hear the bass extension.
    I have installed preconstruction speaker mounts the diameter of the holes are 8" the diameter for these speakers say 8.1" will I be able to fit these speakers in my ceiling cutout or will I need to modify, how true is that 8.1" diameter spec?
    A shopper on Jun 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. The diameter of the ceiling cutout would have to be 8.1". It will likely require some modification to your ceiling cutout.
    What enclosure do you sell that is compatible with this speaker?
    Richard M on May 30, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your interest in this ceiling speaker. If it is a back can you are looking for then you can probably use PID 11941. If you are looking for a cabinet to install this Aria speaker in then I am sorry, we do not carry anything that will work for this model. This unit has a cut-out dimension of 8.1" if you need to look for a speaker box for it.

    This or Caliber series speakers?
    If my rooms have two speakers in the ceiling, meaning I don't need to run a single speaker in stereo, why would I choose this versus the Caliber series - 4103 or 4104 for instance? Which is the better option if I am going to have two speakers in the room already?
    thanks

    BEST ANSWER: Ifor you have two speakers in the room there is no point installing the stereo speakers. You would also need 2 pairs of wires per speaker to make use of them.
    Can these inceiling speakers work in a high ceiling living room?

    My ceiling is 20 ft. high.
    A shopper on Feb 15, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, as long as you have the clearance for the depth of the speaker. They are directional so the higher the ceiling, the better they will perform.
    I need two in-wall surround speakers to replace my on-wall surrounds, which stick out too far. If I wire these per the "Parallel" instructions, with only one speaker cable going to the speaker, will the configuration be bipole or dipole? (from the tweeters at least)
    Also, what impedance would the AVR see?
    Ralph C on Feb 4, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: When wired as a mono unit the impedance remains 8?. The tweeter are in phase as a bipole system.

    Utterly surprised & delighted
    I've been using these speakers for several months and I'm delighted with them.
    I had anticipated tepid performance at best I could not have been more
    wrong. We have fairly large rooms. I installed the speakers (two pairs)
    in a room of 36' x 51' x 17' (ht). I augmented them with a Klipsch C3 and
    a Klipsch subwoofer KSW-10 as their speaker drivers approximate the
    characteristics of the 4619's.

    About all that we watch in that room is the evening news, so I had fully
    expected this combination to prove adequate. What a surprise. Once I
    got the receiver (150W RMS x 5) "dialed-in," I realized that I had grossly
    underestimated the 4619's. I played some acoustic music DVD's and
    was very pleasantly surprised. (I've performed acoustic music since the
    1960's.) I then tried The Stones', Bridges to Babylon and Voodoo Lounge
    DVD's. Very impressive not only in raw SPL but presence, too. And, yes, I
    intentionally over-drove them (albeit, briefly) but the speakers took it
    all in stride.

    I strongly urge that you construct/buy substantial enclosures for these.
    Without belaboring the physics involved, stay away from cubical dimensions.
    I'd suggest that you consider modeling your efforts on the Polk RTI-A3's
    doing so worked well for me. Do construct them from mdf or something
    of similar density. Make sure that they will "sit" square to the ceiling to
    obviate "buzz." Lowes has a 3.5 gallon bucket which will do in a pinch
    (51596-03205, I think!). Be sure to remove the handle first, lest the result
    sound as though a squadron of angry African bees has taken up residence
    in your attic. (I used these buckets as a stop-gap until I got around to
    making more proper enclosures.)

    This thread offers excellent installation recommendation specifics do follow
    them. Most specifically, make sure that you run-in the four screws on each
    speaker before attempting to install them. True to form, I got a speaker
    with one completely un-threaded screw. (Make sure that any substitute
    screw has an un-threaded gap ... or, at least, reduce the torque setting
    on your driver-drill. A fine thread will result in better and uniform binding
    force, though it's not likely to prove critical.) To minimize mess, you might
    consider putting your keyhole saw through a large diameter paper cup and
    cutting from the room-side of the ceiling.

    On a more general note, I've been buying from MonoPrice for quite some
    time and their service has always been exemplary.

    Change the mounting screws and enjoy.
    Many things add together to total a review, and this is no different. As always for the price, the speakers do very well, but some of the corners cut to achieve that price point can cause some headaches. To avoid those headaches, do a simple and still relatively inexpensive fix.

    The major issue with these speakers are the mounting screws. They are thin, very light weight, and phillips head. I have installed many in wall and ceiling speakers, but when using these, the screws tend to bend and the bending pops the locks out the tracking. After running into this issue with about 25% of the screws, I replaced them with quality torx screw from Lowes. They are very inexpensive, and from now on when installing these speakers, I will do this with every screw before hand.

    Do yourself a favor and pick up a half of pound of screws for an extra few bucks. You won't regret it, and you will have plenty left over for fixing things around the house.

    Have been looking for the right ceiling speakers. Found these by surfing the net, wasn't sure at first because of the price, read the reviews and thought I'll give them a try. What an amazing sound the bass is really good. I've installed 4 of these to try now the customer wants another 18 to be I stalked around the house. A must buy for anyone. Trust me do not hesitate you will not be disappointed .

    PROS: The price is outstanding. Well packaged and no problem with delivery

    CONS: Non as of yet

    Excellent Sound
    I put these speakers in earlier today and they were easy to install. For the quality of the sound, you could easily pay four times as much. These mounted into the drywall ceiling. Holes were easily cut with a keyhole saw I purchased for $10 at the local box store. I had easy access to the speakers through the unfinished attic. I dug an open area in the blown in insulation, and gently replaced it laying a piece of plywood over the top to keep the bass from escaping. I'm using the speakers in a small kitchen primarily for music and talk radio. The kitchen borders an open floor plan dining room. Sound fills the kitchen easily and you can hear the music well in the dining room as well.

    PROS: Economical great sound.

    CONS: A bit difficult to reinsert the metal grill after installation of the speaker in the ceiling. But overall, not so bad.

    I bought these speakers for my 7.1 System in my living room and for house speakers (kitchen, bathrooms, bedrooms, hallways) throughout the house. All my house speakers I have a Left and Right Speakers so I cannot speak for the speakers in the Stereo Setting (only one speaker in a room). I am not an expert in sound quality but I think the speakers sound great and everyone who has listened (with Directv, DVD, Pandora, FM Radio) to the speakers think they are great (7.1 system and house speakers). My living room system has a subwoofer but the speakers I am using for the house speakers seem to have pretty good base to them. I only bought a couple speakers for the house speakers to listen how they sound before I buy the remaining house speakers I need. I will definitely be buying these speakers to finish the remaining house speakers locations throughout the house.

    PROS: - Cannot beat the price
    - Great Sound Quality
    - Very easy to install, some people say they had issues with the screws on the speakers, I had no issues.
    - Quick shipping and the speakers were not damaged during shipping.


    CONS: - The jumper cables between Stereo (one speaker in a room) and Parallel settings on the speakers can be difficult to move from one setting to the other. When I switched the speaker settings from Stereo to Parallel setting, I broke off the Mono Stereo connection points on a quarter of the speakers I installed. Not a big deal because I am going to keep them on the Parallel setting but might be an issue for people who are going to be change the speaker settings back and forth.

    Monoprice in-wall in-ceiling speakers
    I was very impressed with the quality of the monoprice speakers. The materials used were very good, and the sound is excellent. The prep for the installation (cutting the holes) was not as easy as I had hoped. Even if you decide it's too advanced for you, and decide to hire an installer, I would still recommend buying the speakers from Monoprice as you'll end up with a better quality product when it's done.

    After first installing the speakers and firing them up from my receiver amp, I was a little disappointed by the sound, but after going through the speaker tuning process on my receiver I am very impressed with the field of sound. I'm assuming that their dynamic range is far superior to my previous speakers, so make sure to tune your receiver after installation.

    PROS: Price! These are half the price of the same speakers sold at Lowes/Home-depot/BestBuy!

    Quality! These speakers are beefy, and well made with quality materials!

    Installation (once holes are made [see Cons]) is very easy and looks great.

    Aesthetic! Quality materials means a heavy duty speaker grill made of a thicker gauge material than comparable speakers, meaning that don't easily "dent" or bow.


    CONS: Drilling/cutting the holes necessary for installing these speakers is not a beginner level task. Dry wall and/or plaster work is much harder than it seems, if you want the finished installation to look good. Having the right tools is essential! For the round speakers, you can order a specific large radius hole cutter tool. I recommend: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B003LR5U7C/ref=oh_details_o04_s00_i00

    Great quality and performance
    I purchased four sets of these speakers (8 individual speakers total) for my home multi-zone audio system. All of my speakers are powered by Sonos ZonePlayer 120s. To make a long story short, when I was purchasing the ZonePlayers I had an involved conversation with the customer service rep. about what speakers to use. I was leaning toward Monoprice but he obviously wanted me to buy from his store. He persuaded me to by a single Niles CM710Si speaker to test out before before committing to Monoprice. The specs of the Niles speaker are very similar to the Monoprice 4619s (except the Niles speakers doesn't have swivelling tweeters from what I noticed). Anyway, the Niles speaker cost me $110 CAD for a SINGLE speaker, compared to the $67.09 CAD for the two monoprice 4619s. In the end I noticed no discernible sound difference between the two speakers and I've been using both of them for over two months. In fact, I like the sound of the Monoprice speakers slightly more, they seem to have a better bass response. I'm happy I bought the Niles speaker just to compare the Monoprice speakers to, because now I know I made the best decision going with Monoprice. However, at the same time I wish I just would have went with Monoprice in the first place because the speaker quality and sound is no different than the more traditional Niles speaker.

    I am very happy with the sound quality of my Monoprice speakers and I would strongly recommend buying these. The sound quality is top notch and easily matches (if not exceeds) certain retail-purchased speakers.

    As far as installation goes, I followed the recommendations listed in the other reviews and they were a great help. THe most important bit of information that I learn from these reviews was to loosen (or rotate) the screws that activate the clips that hold the speaker to the ceiling BEFORE placing the speaker into the ceiling. Sometimes the initial torque that you place on the screw can cause it to jump out of the cylinder that guides it. Therefore, if you rotate the screw around beforehand, it works its way through the cylinder and loosens it up so that when you put the speaker in the ceiling the screw won't jump from its housing.

    PROS: Great quality/craftsmanship, great performance, much cheaper than similarly priced retail models.

    CONS: Minor Issue: The screws used to activate the clips that hold the speaker to the ceiling sometimes pop out of their housing if not properly loosened before installation (see review for more details).

    Who needs a fancy brand name on the grill?
    I'm 55, and no longer trying to impress people with the brand names. I was looking for a 3 way speaker and this was the best one I found, considering I already have a sub-woofer. We did a remodel and hung these speakers in the ceiling for a surround sound system for TV and stereo. Hooked it up to a Yamaha receiver. I'm very pleased so far. They can handle a lot of power, so my teenager will have a hard time blowing them, like he did with the 'hang on the wall' speakers that came with the system. However, I had to go elsewhere to find a cover, which keeps attic insulation from falling into the speakers. Monoprice should offer a similar product.
    September 16, 2013
    Purchased these speakers for a remodel to replace cube speakers previous owners had installed. They look great and install very easily... contractor was impressed with quality right out of the box!
