Our take on the Infinity ERS HV250 by Crutchfield's Tom Mathew
Get enveloping surround sound without cluttering your room with bulky speakers. The ERS HV250, sold individually is ideally suited for home theater, and installs directly in your wall so it doesn't take up even a single inch of floor space. It can be positioned horizontally for use as a center channel speaker, or vertically for front and surround speakers. Get up to seven ERS HV250s and an Infinity powered subwoofer for a complete voice-matched home theater speaker system.
This high-performance in-wall speaker features a 3/4" tweeter, plus dual 5" woofers for clean bass response down to 45 Hz. All of the drivers are made with Infinity's exclusive Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm (C.M.M.D.™) material. C.M.M.D. woofers and tweeters are stiff yet responsive for warm, resonance-free performance across the entire audio spectrum. It's the same driver material used on Infinity's flagship Prelude™ loudspeakers, costing thousands of dollars a pair.
The ERS HV250 is designed for easy installation. It features mounting clamps that swing out and securely grip your wall from the inside. An optional in-wall bracket is recommended for installing the ERS HV250 in a new home under construction (or in a room that's undergoing major renovation).
I bought this because it had the tweeter in the middle, and could be installed vertically. Love it.

Ceramic Metal Matrix Diaphragm (C.M.M.D.): Infinity's C.M.M.D. technology delivers accurate performance with dramatically reduced distortion for incredibly lifelike sound. Additionally, the C.M.M.D. drivers can withstand extreme temperatures, moisture, humidity and sunlight.
Woofers: The 5" C.M.M.D. cone woofers virtually eliminate coloration due to cone flexing, resulting in less distortion and superior accuracy. For a smoother response and improved durability, each woofer uses a rubber surround.
Tweeter: The speaker has a 3/4" C.M.M.D. dome tweeter that offers superior stiffness and damping compared to traditional metal domes.
Waveguide Design: The ERS HV250 incorporates a proprietary waveguide design to ensure smooth distribution of sound throughout the listening area.
Installation: The speaker requires a cutout of 13.9375" by 6.1875", with a depth of 3.386" (including the thickness of the drywall). 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 rough-in-frame kit (item 108IW55RIF).
Paintable: The grille and flange can be painted, allowing this speaker to match any decor.

1 question already asked
I have this speaker as both the center channel as well as left and right. I am very happy with the performance although I am not using a full surround sound system. I like the fact I can mount this speaker either vertically or horizontally, you can paint the speaker grill and it has good performance. Hope this helps, coming from more of the opinion of a novice.

It is a "serviceable" center channel. Once installed, I was not blown away, but was not disappointed either. I wasn't expecting the world at this price range. I can say, however, that the first one I received was bad. The speaker emitted bad static at all volumes. Crutchfield support asked a few questions and sent me a replacement immediately. I was 5 star pleased with their support. [ RONNY J Nov 13, 2014 ]
This is my exact setup for my 7.1 system and it sounds great in my media room. Enjoy the speakers. [ BRAD Nov 13, 2014 ]
