    Amber In-Wall Speaker 6.5-inch 3-way Carbon Fiber Column with Ribbon Tweeter (each)

    3-way In-Wall Column Speaker


    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.

    Carbon Fiber Drivers
    High Frequency Attenuator
    Magnetic Grille


    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.

    Hi, I was looking for a solution for a small condo living room. I was hoping to combine this AMP with a pair of in-wall speakers. Will the Amber 6.5-inch Carbon Fiber 3-way In-Wall Column Speaker with Ribbon Tweeter Product # 15700 work well, or is the amp not powerful enough? Would you suggest smaller speakers? Would you suggest adding a powered sub-woofer? Or a bigger AMP? How loud is 50wX2?
    Thanks!

    BEST ANSWER: I can't speak to those speakers, but this amp has ample power and cranks pretty good. I have it in my office on a pair of JBL G200s, and it rattles the entire house without too much effort. If you are planning to use as a main audio system in a living room, I would definitely consider a powered subwoofer as the in-wall speakers won't give you the bottom-end you're probably looking for.
    Can this speaker be used as a horizontally mounted LCR?
    Peter C on Dec 8, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your interest in this ribbon speaker. The speaker is designed for vertical use. The lager than 16-inch length was not a accident. The port cover is removable for more bass response if not using a sub. Be on the lookout for a complete line of ribbon in-wall and ceiling speakers including a 3-way center, 14.5" wide, Shhhh. Don't tell anyone.
    Any plans on making a larger set of these? And a Center channel? Amber In-Wall Speaker 8-inch 3-way Carbon Fiber Column with Ribbon Tweeter (each)???
    Casey D on May 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Target ETA 10/17.
    I am interested in these speakers, but from the pictures it looks like the ribbon tweeter is mounted incorrectly and should be rotated 90 degrees. It looks like a folded ribbon tweeter or AMT. This type of tweeter is always mounted so the folds are oriented vertically and the opening is taller than it is wide. These appear to have the folds horizontal and the opening is wider than tall. This will give the speakers a broader vertical dispersion and narrower horizontal dispersion which almost never what you want. Can someone confirm this?
    Gilbert R on Dec 6, 2016
    BEST ANSWER: I have these speakers. I also have amt type ribbon speakers. The ribbons in these monoprice speakers are not the same. These ribbons are flat and have (hidden by the louvres) magnets over them. In any case, these speakers seem, to me at least, to have better horizontal dispersion than my amt ribbons.

    Hope this helps.
    Would these speakers be excessive for surrounds on a 7.1 system? It seems to me that these might be a bit much, but maybe bigger is better. Also, is there a good way to mount one of these vertically as a center channel? As others noted, it's too long to mount horizontally between studs. I suppose I could put it vertically underneath the TV, but good grief, that would look weird.
    A shopper on May 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: These speakers will work very well as any part of your home theater system.
    Any idea what size enclosure these can be set in? I will be installing L/C/R in the same cavity and would prefer to separate them.
    benjamin b on Mar 21, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It really depends on your preference in sound. The bigger the box the better the bass response. Use the removable port cover for more bass in a smaller enclosure. There are several DIY sites for speaker building.
    What Ian best center channel speaker to match these speakers? When will the Amber center channel be release?
    Lawrence W on Jul 24, 2017
    Does anyone know what the crossover frequencies are set at?
    Dave H on Jan 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this in-wall ribbon speaker. The Mid/High crossover is 4kHz and the Low/Mid crossover is 650Hz
    How would these work in the ceiling for atmos height speakers? I wander how the dispersion would be with the ribbon tweeter. I'm using the 3 way ambers for front LCR channels. Would these just be overkill or would it be worth it to match all speakers? Anyone doing this same setup?

    Amber In-Wall Speaker 8in 2-way with Ribbon Tweeter (single)
    BEST ANSWER: These will probably be overkill for your height speakers. If you can wait I have a complete line of ribbon 2-way in-wall and ceiling speakers scheduled for Oct. release. The ceiling speakers have 1x1" ribbons that have a very close signature as the 3x4 ones in your 3-way. The in-walls have the same 3x4 ribbon.
    Hi Dave - it seems you have all the answers regarding the Amber ribbon speakers. Are there any more details you can provide on the upcoming ribbon in-wall and ceiling line? I am mostly interested in dimensions. I have contractors finishing my basement and I getting close to needing to run low voltage and I have already purchased Alpha speakers (13683, 13616, 13618) for my home theater and would like to replace them with these ribbon speakers when they become available - can't wait until October to install though. I have depth limitations for the rear surrounds (3.5" total clearance) which is why I had to get the 6.5" alphas. My concern is that I don't want to have a larger hole in my wall than what the ribbon will need.

    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!

    Alpha Ceiling Speakers 8-Inch Carbon Fiber 2-way (pair)
    BEST ANSWER: The new Ambers are still in development. We have not finalized dims at this time. I am trying to keep the dims similar to the Alphas. 3.5" is my target depth for all of the installed speakers to fit within 2x4 studs.

    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.
    Could this be used in a system as a Center channel? Mounted horizontally of course. I was trying to keep a consistency among my speakers when installing and was thinking that if this could act as the Center, I could use the 8-inch 2-ways as Left and Right. Any suggestions or answers would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
    Patrick F on Jan 6, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Patrick,

    I have 2 of the 3-ways mounted as front L & R. I don't see why you can't use one as your center. Sound-wise, it makes sense. However, you need to consider the fact that the long dimension, mounted horizontally, will exceed the typical spacing between 2 wall studs. So, if your wall has typical framing, you can't mount it without a structural header etc. I suspect this is why most center spkrs are external, not wall mounted.
    Do these for certain have magnetic grills? The other Amber speakers say they do, but users report they do not.
    Brian S on Apr 12, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Yes, they have very nice magnetic grills. We painted our grills to match the dark walls in our theater room. That made the bright silver magnets behind the grills very visible through the grills. A little work with a black sharpie made them disappear.
    Can the speaker grill fabric be replaced or removed to change the color to black for matching other room speakers?
    Jon G on Apr 27, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Its not fabric. its metal and it is listed as paintable.
    Can these speakers be used outside on a deck? No water can reach it besides normal dew in the morning.
    Jeremy S on Sep 19, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The rear of the speakers are not sealed. I personally would not consider that application. But these do sound awesome as an in wall interior application
    Would 3 of these fill my front if my room is 16x20 (screen is on 16 ft wall)? We sit about 13 feet away. Planning to build a box for them and integrated into existing acoustic panels. Center speaker will sit horizontal.
    Toan T on Aug 13, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in these ribbon speakers. 3 of these speakers in a LCR set-up will do your room quite nicely. I would use a sub with them like our 12-Inch 150-Watt Powered Subwoofer.
    12-Inch 150-Watt Powered Subwoofer, Black
    12-Inch 150-Watt Powered Subwoofer, Black
    I'm planning to install the 7.2.4 atmos set up. The LCR will be these speakers. I haven't decided on the in-ceiling speakers yet but might be the 13687 model below. The new speakers that will be releasing in October, will the line up include a single 5.25" or 6.5" with the ribbon tweeter? The current 8" would be an overkill for the setup. And is October still the correct release date?

    Thanks in advance.

    BEST ANSWER: The alphas are also great speakers. The new Ambers are still slated for Oct. Ceiling mount versions will be available in 6.5 and 8 inch.
    can i mount these in the ceiling?
    A shopper on May 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: You probably could but they are designed to wall mount due to the design of the speaker woofer tweet woofer. This sounds best when directed straight at you. The ceiling speakers will work better for you and sound great.
    How is the tweeter dispersion if this speaker is turned 90 degrees and used as a center channel? By the product description posted, it seems like it would work horribly. If there were a rotated version (or if this were engineered with a rotatable tweeter mount) I'd snap these up in a heartbeat.

    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?
    David M on Jan 5, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: The tweeter is flat it would work fine for a center if you have room between studs. As for the port if it goes in a back box I think then I would try taking it off.
    I have installed like 3-4 pairs.
    Monoprice has a 4 inch pair of speakers that have different tweeter but has the same grills it what I used for a center on two different installs. Sounded great. Been installing for 15+years
    What is the exact diameter of the black body? (I have an existing 7.5" wide opening)
    A shopper on Aug 28, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in this in-wall speaker. If you click on the specs tab of the product page you will see the cut-out dimensions are 6.7" x 17.7" (170 x 450 mm) and the overall size is 8.2" x 19.2" x 3.6" (207 x 487 x 91 mm).
    Hi, want to get this speaker for L/C/R for a theater setup up. But after reading other questions, I'm a bit confuse regarding its use and mounting position. Can it be use as Center channel? Mounting positioning, vertical only or can it be mount horizontal? If it can't be use as Center can you recommend a Center that matches the L/R speakers?
    Lawrence W on Jun 18, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: I'm using these now in my 7.2 setup and they operate excellently as a center channel speaker (I've mounted them vertically behind an acoustically transparent screen). I can't rate them highly enough.
    Any thoughts about how these compare to the Alpha speakers in either 6" or 8"?
    Doug P on Mar 10, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: Thanks for your interest in this speaker. The carbon fiber drivers are the same as the Alpha series so low mids and bass will be very similar. These ribbon HF against the titanium silk HF of the Alpha will be a little smoother. If you use the attenuation on the Alpha you may be able to get it pretty close. Several other users have commented favorably on using the these with Alphas.

    Wow....Amazing. DO NOT hesitate to purchase these speakers.
    I looked at these speakers for about 2 months before finally purchasing them. So, to be completely honest, I really thought that Monoprice was deleting negative reviews. But I decided to give the following speakers a try ( 2 sets of Alpha In Ceiling Speakers 8 Inch Carbon Fiber 2-way (pair), 2 Amber In Wall Speaker 8-inch 2-way with Ribbon Tweeter (single), 1 Alpha In Wall Center Channel Speaker Dual 5.25 Inch Carbon Fiber 2-way (single), and 2 Amber 6.5-inch Carbon Fiber 3-way In-Wall Column Speaker with Ribbon Tweeter (each).) I purchased these speakers for a Dolby Atmos Home Theater set up. I have these speakers connected to a Onkyo TX-RZ810 receiver. I cannot say enough good things about these speakers. They are very Crisp, and have a very clean and clear sound. The speakers look absolutely amazing as well. I wish I could upload some pictures to show how well they look. I would not hesitate on purchasing these speakers. You WILL be satisfied.

    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)

    Great sounding but flimsy tabs
    These sound great as Left and Right channel speakers. The only thing is that, like other posters, the tabs broke on about half of them when installing. There is a flaw and/or cheap materials that cause them to pull out to the side instead of locking down. It was a little frustrating. You just need to be careful and insure that they are locking instead of breaking. The screws are so cheap that they bent. Additionally, they both came damaged on the grills. There is not protection (bubble wrap, styrofoam) However, I was able to bend the grills back in to place. All said and done I would order more in the future,. Just keep the mounting tabs in mind.

    Sounds great but mounting screws are bad
    I installed 3 of them as LCR in my wall just last week. I had a very hard time during the installation because the dog ear screws are poor quality and they've bent when I was screwing them. So I had to loosen them up, replace those screws with my own store bought screws and install them. Took lot of time, but after installation I liked the sound quality of these speakers.

    Excellent speakers!!! Great value for the price.
    I got theses speakers for my in wall theater LCR setup. I installed the center speaker vertically because it is too wide for 16 in wall stud. Works great. The sound quality is excellent. For the price, I would get them.

    i just installed these and so far they sound great. they are a little on the mid-high side but i'll try removing the port covers to see how they sound then. the drivers are massive and the crossover network is nicer than most that cost more.

    Best Monoprice speakers yet!
    These sound absolutely amazing. Especially if you build sealed boxes for them with a little sound dampening on the back wall of the boxes (typical speaker box construction). I put 8 of these, plus 3 of the 10" Monoprice subs in the ceiling of my main floor (spead across three connected rooms, with volume controls in each room), and the house sounds like a concert when turned up. It's incredible.
