Big sound from little speaker
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Using these in an in-wall 5.1 setup and, while I haven't had them for very long, so far I'm EXTREMELY impressed. There is a LOT of sound coming out of these relatively small speakers, including decent bass, which is the most pleasant surprise of all! And so far the only distortion has been occasional vibration from an adjacent wall (the wall's fault... not the speaker's). These speakers feel solid and high-quality right out of the box, probably thanks to the noticeably heavy bass driver magnet. Setup couldn't be easier provided you're decently skilled with a wallboard knife and a screwdriver. I probably would have preferred binding posts to the supplied, old-school spring clips just for added cable security once these are up in the wall, but that's a quibble-- the spring clips are larger than most and easily hold 14-gauge wire (and, I assume, even larger).
Pros: Great sound-- they disappear and easily fill the room.
Cons: If I'm really being a nerd... Spring clips, really? The 1970's called... they want their HiFi back.
