Klipsch ME-800-C

Purchased 4 for home theater installation. Haven't finished the project but I am impressed with quality of construction. Insulation is thick inside and I'm sure it will help to direct the sound into my room and not up through the floors.

Worth the Price

Installed these along with a set of the CDT5800 when I was finishing my basement. I can say that the combination of the speaker enclosure and the speakers themselves sound fantastic. I am running them as my rear channel in a 5.1.2 setup. If you are doing in ceiling speakers spend the extra money and get the enclosure, do it right the first time, it can't hurt. I did have to add some wood bracing in the ceiling so that I had something to screw into when I installed them. I also took it a step further and added some sound insulation above and around the speaker box, just to help prevent sound transfer to the first floor.

Pros: Great fit, awesome quality, serves its purpose

Cons: None

Well built!

Very well made enclouse. Built with heavy gauge steel. Be aware that your joists in the ceiling shoudl be 16" on center and not doubled up. In my case, my customer had an older house and the joists were reinforced by doubling up the beam. This led to a very tight fit, just barely made it. And I was not able to use the wire clamp connector. Instead I drilled a 3/8" hold from the top of the enclosure. This is absolutely no fault of the product but rather the house's construction but just letting people out there to check their mounting circumstances. For grin, I tried it in my house, which is much more modern and it fits perfectly. My house has wooden I-beam joists if that helps. The speakers have not been installed yet so I don't know the effect it has on the sound but I'm sure it would be much better than mouting the speakers freely in the ceiling.
