Amber In-Wall Speaker 6.5-inch 3-way Carbon Fiber Column with Ribbon Tweeter (each)
In-wall 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 3-way speaker uses a carbon fiber woofer cone with rubber surround for deep, impactful bass, a carbon fiber mid-range driver for tight, articulate mids, and a ribbon tweeter for sweeter and smoother high frequencies.
Ribbon Tweeter: A ribbon tweeter is composed of a very thin metal diaphragm suspended in a powerful magnetic field. It is capable of very high acceleration, which means that it is very responsive to musical nuances. Ribbon tweeters have a wide horizontal dispersion and a very tight vertical dispersion, thereby increasing the size of the audio "sweet spot".
Carbon Fiber Drivers: Carbon fiber is a very lightweight and rigid material, making it ideal for speaker drivers. The lightweight ensures that the driver can respond quickly to musical nuances, while the additional rigidity results in improved accuracy and a flatter frequency response. The result is a is deep, impactful bass, and tight, articulate mids, without a hint of distortion.
High Frequency Attenuator: The high-frequency attenuator can reduce high frequencies by 0, -3, or -6 dB. This allows you to fine tune the speaker's high-end response to compensate for a particularly "bright" listening environment.
Magnetic Grille: The removable grille attaches to the speaker using powerful magnets, to ensure that the powerful bass does not cause rattle. The grille is paintable and features a slim bezel, allowing it to more easily blend into your home's decor.
Higher sensitivity, deeper bass,
and higher power handling
Carbon fiber is a lighter and stiffer material than what is normally used in speaker drivers. This means that the drivers can respond quickly to musical nuances, are more accurate, and have a flatter frequency response. The result is deep, impactful bass and tight, articulate mids, without a hint of distortion.

Questions and Answers
Hope this helps.
On another note, does anyone use these speakers (15700) as left front and right front speakers? I want to get these but am concerned they will overpower the alphas I will be using everywhere else. It would be great to know all the dimensions (depth included) of the upcoming ribbon speakers so that I can make sure I future proof my setup and have my contractors allow for them. Thanks!
The use of the Amber 15700 with Alpha surrounds seems to be a pretty popular formula. If you scroll through the reviews you will see quite a few folks doing just that.
I like the uniform look having all three the same size gives, plus when watching movies and the dialogue or sound effects pan across the from stage it's seamless having the same drivers all across the front. Your choice though.
Also what's the deal with what appears to be a capped port/vent at the bottom of the speaker? Is that meant to be uncapped if the speaker is mounted with a back box?
The port is capped and appears to be glued as well but it does have screws to take it off. I guess it's slightly glued to be sure it's sealed (it could be sealant). I didn't take the cap off but just place them in the wall as is. I'm very impressed with these speakers. You will need a sub though if you want low end bass.
Thanks in advance.
Hope that helps.
PROS: Great Speakers, Great Price, Look beautiful.
CONS: Shipping is higher than it should be. (Not really a default of the speakers, but I wish Monoprice would have better shipping rates)
