Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
The Focal's sound great, but getting them installed was a challenge due to the width. My ceiling construction is open web joists installed 16" on center. That left almost exactly 12-5/8" clearance for the speakers. Two of them required permanent modification to squeeze them in. I was concerned that having the speakers in a 9' ceiling would result in the sound disconnected from the TV picture. If you focus on it, it's noticeable; but if you don't, it's nearly seamless. I attribute this to the selectable position adjustment and the adjustable tweeter on the speaker. I'm very impressed with the speakers overall and would definitely buy them again. Also, the greater the volume, the better the experience.
Pros: Sound quality. Setup for home theater.
Cons: Can be tricky to install solo. Width may be an issue depending on ceiling construction.
