Infinity CS60R Rock
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
We are extremely pleased with our purchase! Speakers sound incredible.
Enjoy smooth, accurate sound in just about any room in your home. Infinity's CS60R, sold individually, installs directly in your ceiling, making it a great choice for rooms without lots of space to spare. Pick up a pair for great stereo sound in the kitchen, laundry room, or den. Plus, you can paint the frame and grille to blend in with your décor. An optional in-ceiling bracket is recommended for installing the in a new home under construction (or in a room that's undergoing major renovation). For more powerful bass, add an Infinity powered subwoofer.
We are extremely pleased with our purchase! Speakers sound incredible.

Great sound very happy.
Easy to install. Good sound
Product was easy to install and is a great sounding addition to my dolby atmos setup. Comes with a nice thick cardboard template and paint guard, and the speaker and surround materials look to be high quality. Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that the infinity logos are optional stickers, and they fell off after 2 days. I have a matched set of infinity primus speakers, so I'd prefer to keep the logos affixed to the grills.
Pros: Easy to install Great template High quality materials
Cons: Logo is a sticker that falls off upon firing up the speaker Grills difficult to take out once installed in without damaging their finish.
So far so good will know more after install next 5 speakers to complete job.
Not a bad product for the price. Using for general music in a living room. Have insignias in other rooms and they sound a lot cleaner off the 35watt per channel system I have. Would have not used if still made the insignia with that being said in the right application not bad for the price
Perfect overhead speaker for Atmos setup
I own 2 Infinity CS60r and 2 Infinity CS60 speakers that serve as my ceiling-mounted Atmos speakers. Both two-way speaker sets use the same mid-range and tweeters and their sound intertwines with my other Infinity Alpha and Beta speakers very well. Mounting them into the ceiling required painting the bevels to match the ceiling. Rust-Oleum spray paint was used for this purpose. The provided templates for painting were a bit small for the CS60 round speakers. The cut/placement templates provided worked well for both the rectangular and round CS60 speakers. I used 12 gauge speaker wire, but could not use banana plugs to connect to the speakers themselves. You must use the provided clips. I designed, built and installed vented speaker boxes in the attic above all four speakers. The boxes better direct sound into my home theater and minimize weathering from exposure to the heat/cold/dust of the attic. I did not use batting inside any of these speaker boxes, but time will tell if and when I need any to deepen the produced sound. I've been using these new speakers for about a week now and am satisfied with the sound produced. Be cautious of a broken/cracked cross-over electronics board. I had to return one of the CS60R speakers due to a broken board. Crutchfield took care of the problem immediately. Infinity no longer makes the CS60 rectangular speaker that I prefer. The CS60R is readily available.
Pros: Easy installation and great sound. Its a small, yet powerful two way speaker system
Speakers are much more substantial than big box store speakers that I have used in the past. I purchased on sale and am very happy with the sound quality and value. I would recommend to anyone that is not a full fledged audiophile (which I am not).
Crystal Clear & you can't beat the price!
Great purchase for the cost. The speakers really improve the sound quality of my theater room. I would definitely recommend.
Good price,good quality
Fast shipping and excellent product. Installation was easy...
Pros: Great Sounding speakers.
Great service from Crutchfield who advised on great speakers for my system at a reasonable price.
Pros: Great price. Very good quality.
Cons: Off white so needs to be painted to match most ceilings.
Excellent speakers . i am only using them for surround sound but they can be used for so much more. Don't let the low price fool you.
Pros: Just a great sounding speaker.
Not a high end speaker, but the sound quality is much better than I expected for the price. I swapped out my high end in ceiling speakers with these in advance of a move to a new house. Was pleasantly surprised with the sound quality. Great value and easy to install yourself (these were the first speakers I installed myself).
Easy install and great sound
Pros: Easy install and great sound
I installed these speakers in a drop ceiling of a small restaurant & pizzeria. I was concerned about sound quality in an open environment with no enclosure or baffling behind the speakers but, considering the great price and Infinity brand name, I took a a chance. I installed 5 speakers connected to a "vintage" but still great Denon AVR- 5700. NO PROBLEM! I was truly surprised by their performance. We have actually received numerous compliments from customers about how nice the music sounds and several requests to "Turn it up"! As for the speakers themselves, I was really impressed with the quality construction. These speakers would be a bargain at the regular price. For the sale price, the are an absolute steal. An unexpected benefit, they were a absolutely perfect match for the ceiling tiles. I don't think I could have ordered custom painted speakers that would have been a better match. Of course, Crutchfield service, packaging and shipping was perfect.
Pros: Great quality at an "offshore junk speaker" price.
Purchased the speakers for my Atmos project scheduled to start in two months. All my speakers are Infinity.
Pros: I have the utmost confidence that these will do the job.
I ordered these speakers for the surround sound in my living room. Excellent sound and easy installation. We have had them for a couple of weeks and the sound keeps getting better. Clear, crisp, excellent sound! Great speaker for the price!
Pros: Easy installation Excellent sound Great speaker for the price
For the price not bad at all.
Excellent speaker for the price. These are in my ceiling, as part of a 5.1.2 Atmos setup with Infinity Primus speakers as 5.1 Powered by an Onkyo Tx-RZ710, 4k Blu-ray and dolby mixed audio sounds spectacular. Very crisp, and clear.
Easy installation, great sound quality. The speaker acts as my center speaker with Bose surround sound. Speaker works well and holds its own next to the Bose system!
Pros: Easy clear installation... crisp clear sound quality
Cons: None seen yet
Great speaker for the price!!!!
Pros: Easy to install!
Awesome pair of speakers. Crisp and clear sound. I love them.
Excellent product. Delivered by Crutchfield in perfeat condition.
Great product at a great price.
Great sound, easy install. Would be 5 stars if not for the color, item is not "white" its actually beige?
Pros: Great sound, easy install
Cons: not true to color stated in description
Lots of bang for the buck. I used them for overhead Atmos in combination with my Infinity Primus Surround system
Pros: Easy to install
I got these speakers to be the top middle of my Atmos setup. They replaced the Onkyo Atmos speakers I got in September. I must say that I was not impressed with the reflective sound technology on Onkyo speakers. After struggling with my drop ceiling to fit the speakers, I calibrated surround and was amazed at the difference. I played the Fifth Element which was remastered in Dolby Atmos and was blown away. Now all my speakers match and I can't wait to re-watch my growing library of Atmos movies with new setup. I was on the fence for a while with this technology, but after getting these in-ceiling speakers and getting away from reflective speakers, I am sold. Very happy. In fact, my wife said that she has never seen me this happy in 17 years, so that must count for something. Thanks again, Crutchfield!
Pros: great sound, blends well with my other Infinity speakers, once holes are cut in ceiling the install is easy.
Cons: none at this point
Great sound quality at a great price. Easy install too. Highly recommend!
Pros: 100% Satisfied from purchase through use. The sound great with my Marantz system
Right price and QTY available. Already had the in ceiling boxes just needed to fill the holes with quality speakers. Now to setup for wireless playing. Shipping was quick to Alaska, about 6 days total including the weekend.
Pros: easy to install, price spot on
Cons: Nothing at this point
Great speaker for the money. I use in my surround sound 7.1. It is fantastic. I also have them placed throughout the finished basement running trough Sonos amps. I would highly recommend these speakers.
Use them as top speakers in a7.1 surround system with Klipsch speakers and a Onkyo receiver and a Polk bass cube The Crutchfield tech person recommended the speakers saying they would match up well with my system he was right I could not be happier weather listening to music or a movie they just add one more dimension and finish it off at a very reasonable price
Pros: Easy installation good sound
good sound...use as rear spe
Great value. Tough to find a better in-wall/ceiling speaker for the money. They were super easy to install.
Pros: Easy to install, good sound
Cons: Not the top of the line speaker, but I you do get more than you pay for with these.
Accurate sounding ceiling speaker. Good value for the price. The high and midrange are very good. Lacking in low end.
Pros: Good Speaker for the money.
Cons: Lacking in low end!
great bang for the buck!
Pros: price, sound
Good sounding speakers-I'm using them as height speakers for atmos. They sound great!
Pros: Clear highs & mid range
Cons: May be a lil light on bass if you're not using a sub.
Great product , easy installation ,sound fantastic
Pros: Easy install
Awesome sound for small speaker. Using 2 of these at pool cabana and is very loud.
Really open soundstage, and great detail for an in ceiling. Better high's and midrange detail than my polks'. Light in the base, as this is a 6.5" inch driver. Plan to use a subwoofer.
Pros: Clean and detailed highs and midrange. Open soundstage.
Cons: low bass
Excellent speakers for price great sound , really rock the room
Pros: price, quality , sound
Perfect addition to complete a surround system
Pros: In ceiling and out of way
Cons: None yet
I bought 7 of these. 5 for a 5.1 system and 2 more as surrounds in another room. I knew they would't be ideal as left center and right, but in this room it was more important that they were out of the way rather than perfectly placed. They work OK but don't sound that great off-axis. I probably should have gone with a speaker that was more aimable. The other disappointment is they aren't quite white. They are a bit gray and stand out. They are paintable but it's silly to have to paint them white when that's what they are supposed to be. As surrounds they work well, but again they work much better when they point directly at the listening position.
Pros: Inexpensive, easy to install, decent sound for the price.
Cons: Off-white color, Off-axis sound.
I bought two pairs of these mainly because they fit in the opening we had made in the ceilings of our brand new house for some high end speakers. I doubt I would ever be able to tell the difference in the what were supposed to go in and these, but the Infinity speakers were half the price. I am not an audiophile, but these sound great to me. The Crutchfield customer service is great as usual. I had the speakers a couple of days after I ordered them.
Pros: Nice sound, good price and fit my 8" openings
I purchased these Infinity's to use for background music in my large living room. They sound great! I was not expecting them to shake the room, but they will get loud enough for my taste. I was surprised by the amount of bass as well. All in all a good speaker for my application.
Pros: Good build quality, good sound quality, easy to install.
Cons: Nothing, performing just as expected.
I had Infinity speakers and subwoofers and now I have installed these 'voice matched' Infinity inwall speakers for my middle side and high-wide left and right front speakers for a 9.1 installation with my new 9.1 reciver. Using round speakers made an better installation since you can't make round crooked ;-}) They sound great and in my 19'x20' theater room they made a very nice improvment. These speakers install very fast, easly and are very sturdy. Mounting simply with four built in clamps that secure on the inner side of the dry wall. The attachment is rock solid and any vibration uses the wall as part of the speaker.
These speakers sound great for the size. Easy to install with included templates. Speakers also look great when installed. I am using these speakers for left and right rear channels in my living room. For my house they are perfect. I have an open floor plan and the ceiling is the only option for my rear speakers. I don't know if these would be great speakers for front channel surround sound applications, but for rear and multi-room applications they are definitely a great fit. After about a week I put the speakers through the paces and they performed great. I am very pleased with the purchase of these speakers and will recommend and install them for others.

Woofer: The 6-1/2" poly laminate cone woofer virtually eliminates coloration due to cone flexing, resulting in less distortion and superior accuracy. For a smoother response and improved durability, the woofer uses a rubber surround.
Tweeter: The speaker has a 1" pivoting titanium-coated dome tweeter with an acoustic waveguide. This allows you to direct the highs to the location where you will listening to music or watching TV.

Installation: The speaker requires a cutout of 7.944" and a depth of 4.095" (including the thickness of the drywall). The speaker frame has a diameter of 9.298". Once the hole is cut, the speaker can be dropped in and the locking tabs can be tightened, allowing you to secure the speaker to the drywall without any extra assembly.
Note: For new construction, you will need to purchase the optional IW6RIF rough-in-frame kit (item #108IW6RIF).
Paintable: The grille and flange can be painted, allowing this speaker to match any décor.

I would try to keep the back of the speaker as clean as possible to avoid the speaker from over heating and or damage to the cone or voice coil [ Dylan Skotarczak Mar 21, 2017 ]
No it isn"t. Anything sitting on the back of the driver will bounce and vibrate when in use, causing distorted sound. Either make a cover to isolate the speaker from the insulation or use styrofoam insulation above your speakers. [ Charles Mar 21, 2017 ]
Yes, they do. I have 4 of them in my kitchen and aimed them slightly to optimize the sound. I love them and am glad I chose them to install. [ Martin C. Jan 28, 2017 ]
The round Infinity speakers have fixed tweeters and they work fine in my Dolby Atmos system. The rectangular Infinity speakers have pivoting tweeters. I have them installed in another room and the pivot feature really makes little if any difference. [ Kent Jan 13, 2017 ]
yes they do, [ paul Jan 13, 2017 ]
yes [ Dylan Skotarczak Sep 07, 2016 ]
Yes they can. Any wall or ceiling that is less than an inch thick will work with these speakers.Most sheetrock is 1/2" thick [ Charles Sep 07, 2016 ]
Yes. The mounting screws draw mounting tabs closer inside the wall/ceiling until the speaker is clamped to the drywall from the back side. They would be great for ceiling or wall applications. [ JEREMY Sep 06, 2016 ]
Yes, we've got 36 of them mounted in both the ceilings and walls thru-ought the house. They sound fantastic! Our AV guy turned us on to them:) [ Karen Sep 06, 2016 ]
I would say yes they can. They have the same mounting mechanism that my wall speakers have. [ paul Sep 06, 2016 ]
Sorry I don't understand question. [ james Jun 28, 2016 ]
Yes, we've got 36 of them in the ceiling throughout the whole house. They are great speakers that were highly recommended by our installer. I now understand why he likes em:) Our system is a bit over the top with 8 Sonos amps, 3 full surround sound systems so we wanted the best speakers. These did not disappoint! [ Karen Jun 23, 2016 ]
I used these in the ceiling for rear channels and they work well. You may not get the complete sound that you want using for all channels as due to the size the bass response will not be as great. Definitely get a sub woofer. You mentioned prewired but are the drywall holes already cut? If not you could go larger size for front left/right and center. You may have more options to consider. Give Crutchfield a call about other products if drywall has not been cut yet. [ VICTORIA Sep 16, 2015 ]
I have 2 in ceiling for my old style analog receiver. I would think that if you have a fancy system you should go for a better quality midrange for the center speaker. [ KAREN Sep 08, 2015 ]
Yes you can but personally I would recommend getting a better pair of speaks for the left, right, and center. The Infinity work well as surround/complementary speakers [ Joseph Sep 08, 2015 ]
Chris, you don't mention the dimensions of your living room. But unless you have an enormous room, these are very adequate as long as you have a decent Subwoofer attached to your system. Enjoy your CS-60Rs, I sure enjoy mines. [ Harold A. Sep 08, 2015 ]
RAted for inside [ VICTORIA Sep 16, 2015 ]
We bought it for inside. I think you may be able to use for outside, but we bought special outside speakers that we a larger size. [ David Mar 04, 2015 ]
Indoor. Doesn't really have the water resistance needed to be considered outdoor. [ CHAD Mar 03, 2015 ]
in ceiling indoor speaker [ KAREN Mar 03, 2015 ]
These speakers should work well in most locations of a 7.1 system. Feel free to reach out to an Advisor for specifics on placement within they system and to ensure that you get the best speakers for your system and room. [ Jeff Nov 27, 2013 ] Staff
