Your typical a/v receiver runs at 8ohms, so this speaker could potentially draw too much power from your receiver and blow the amplifier. It's important to match your Ohm/watt ratings, so know your specs.
The "Micro-flanged" center speaker (#4930) is rated at 8ohms/80W max and is only 13 3/5" wide (fitting between standard wall studs) and is a better choice for most systems.
This is the first time I am upset with a monoprice product. We do not control our walls and anyone mounting this speaker where the framers miss measured and shot the studs a half inch closer is screwed. These speakers need to be 15 1/2 across there is space it can be done 18 on center may be in a lot of new construction but most people buying this product are installing in older construction. Change this product Monoprice. Or create one for old construction and one for new construction
PROS: Too many to list!
PROS: Great Sound
CONS: Why the change to 4 Ohm?
I read the reviews, and read the comments about the speaker not fitting between the studs in a "16 on center" home. I also read the comment that you can cut the side posts off and install the speaker without a problem.
I went ahead and purchased the speaker. I removed the screws within the posts and cut them off with a dremel. Then I cut the required hole in the drywall. I trimmed the drywall past the studs without damaging the studs. The speaker installed easily after that. The speaker sounds great and exceeds my expectations! (esp. given the price).
The only negative, is that with such a tight fit, if your studs aren't centered to the room, then your center speaker may not be perfectly centered with your screen. Mine is off by less than a speaker width. However, the stud placement in the wall will most likely be out of your control unless you are building the room from scratch... but then this wouldn't be a problem if you can put the studs wherever you like...
Great speaker, great price, simple modification to get it to fit.
Ive done this with my main in wall speakers to get them mounted where I needed and it worked out great.
But if you don't want to go through the hassle, then probably getting the micro-flanged center channel (product id 6317) is probably an easier choice.
PROS: Excellent sounding speakers at an amazing price
CONS: Like others, the installation of these is an issue. Some have said to disregard that and rate it only based on the sound quality. However, with these marketed as in-wall speakers and the fact that they don't fit in-wall between standard studs, then it is indeed an issue.
PROS: The price of the product and the quality. Easy installation
CONS: Not as much bass as I would have expected, but that is why I have a 12" powered sub.
Keep in mind that if you want these centered under a TV, there may be a stud in the way anyway.
PROS: Great sound. I put in a 7.1 system with this center, Kevlar 2 way in-wall fronts and Kevlar 2 way in-ceiling for mid and rear. I'm driving it with a Denon 7.1 home theater receiver and couldn't be happier. I could have spent a lot more money and not noticed a discernible difference in sound quality. I shopped everywhere and this was by far the best deal.
CONS: Size as per my review and the fact that I could get Kevlar for all of the others, but not for my center channel. That should be rectified by Monoprice.
