Our take on the Energy EAS-6W

by Marshall Chase
Energy

The Energy EAS-6W in-wall speakers have a reputation for deep bass and crystal-clear highs, making them an outstanding choice for décor-friendly audio to your home system. You'll get room-filling sound, too, because Energy designed the EAS-6W for wide dispersion. Use them as stealth surround speakers or to bring music alive through a multi-room audio system. You'll hear the intricate details in your favorite songs, as well as every whisper of dialogue and each roll of thunder from movie sound tracks. You can even paint the included grilles to match your space perfectly.

Features

Drivers: The Energy EAS-6W rectangular in-wall speakers are equipped with the following drivers:

  • Tweeter: 1" aluminum dome tweeter
  • Woofer: 6-1/2" Injection-molded Homopolymer woofer

Surround: The woofer uses a NBR (Nitrile-Butadiene-Rubber) / SBR (Styrene-Butadiene-Rubber) surround.

Speaker Terminals: The speaker has a pair of spring clip terminals that can accept pin connectors or bare wire up to 12-gauge.

High Frequency EQ: A switch on the EAS-6W's circuit board (on the back of the speaker) allows you to contour the high frequency output. The 0 (zero) position maintains a flat, even frequency response, while the +3dB position will increase the sound output to the tweeter. The +3dB position should be used in rooms with excessive sound absorption material, such as thick carpet, drapes, couches, etc.

Break-In Period: Energy recommends that you play the EAS-6W for a 50 to 100 hour break-in period before playing at high volume and making final sound adjustments. This is easily done by putting your compact disc player on repeat mode while playing a CD with a wide dynamic range at normal listening levels.

Mounting Options

Installation: The speakers can be installed in new or existing construction; each speaker requires a cutout of 7-1/2 inches wide and 10-7/8" high, and is held in place with six plastic mounting clamps. The required depth to install the speaker is 3-1/4" from the mounting surface (this includes the thickness of the drywall). Behind the opening there must be a 7/8" clearance around the speaker to accommodate the mounting clamps. Speakers should be installed in drywall at least 3/8" thick. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout.

Two-Part Procedure: The speakers install in two stages. First, the speaker can be removed from the bezel, so that the bezel can be installed into the prepared cutout using a Philips screwdriver to tighten the mounting clamps. Once the bezel is installed, the speaker can be installed into the bezel, and attached with the six flathead mounting screws (supplied) using a Philips screwdriver.

Paintable: Both the bezel and aluminum grille can be painted to match the wall; a cardboard paint mask is included.

Worth every penny!!!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Bought this pair of speakers for living room since the room already had a pair of B&W that previous owners had installed. These speakers sound great will good enough bass, but will need a subwoofer to do justice. I am no audiophile but based on my needs and usage, the sound is clean and crisp and the speakers can handle 100 watts which is more than enough for the room they are installed in.

I purchased these speakers to expand my 5.1 home theater to a 7.1 and they sound great. Very easy install. I have owned energy speakers for the last 10 years and they still sound great that is why I stuck with the brand.
