      I was looking for 4 ceiling speakers to complete a 7.2.4 Atmos system when I came across these. The rest of the system is as follows: Front L/R: BP8040ST Center: CS8060HD Surround L/R: BP8040ST Surround Back L/R: SR8080BP Subs: 2 x SVS SB2000 Given that everything except the subs comes from the Definitive Technology 8000 series, I had originally been looking at the DT8R. The Polk VT60 has very similar specs (though single tweeter vs dual tweeters in the Def Tech), but at $50 a piece on sale versus $200+ for the DT8R I was willing to give them a try. Apart from cost considerations, the cutout for the DT8R is slightly bigger than for the VT60, so it wouldn't have been the end of the world to swap them out if I ended up not liking the Polks. Upon opening the boxes, I was quite impressed with the construction quality of the VT60s. This doesn't look or feel like a $50 or $100 speaker, and I will note here that there is a Polk V60 which appears to be identical in every regard but which lists for $200 each. The VT60 is a Best Buy only model. I'll spare you the gory details of what "fun" it was installing the 4 Polks into an existing construction ceiling that wasn't wired for speakers. Let's just say that it wasn't an afternoon that I would care to repeat. With everything hooked up and Audyssey XT32 run to calibrate it all, I ran some Atmos demos. Incidentally Audyssey set the crossover for the Polks at 80Hz so they can definitely get down low for such a small speaker. I immediately knew that this was a good decision. If you've ever watched the Amaze demo, the rain seemed to be coming from above - not in an easily locatable way, but in a diffuse, enveloping way. Awesome! Just for fun I tried listening to some music with all channels engaged. Missy Elliott's "Get Your Freak On" was huge fun with "Holler!" rolling around the room from every side and also from above. Not how I usually listen to music, but actually a very cool twist for certain genres. Recently we watched the "Last Samurai". There's a scene where assassins are attacking Katsumoto's village, and they're creeping up the roof to begin their attack. This isn't an Atmos soundtrack by the way, but the Dolby Surround Upmixer does a phenomenal job sending appropriate content to the Atmos speakers. My wife about jumped out of her skin as it truly sounded as though the assassins were on our roof! The Polks did a fantastic job of producing every subtle footfall in phenomenal detail, and equally well at louder, deeper sounds as the attack was in full swing. I could continue to praise the performance of these speakers with legitimate Atmos soundtracks like Passengers, Life, Gravity, John Wick, Oblivion etc (Life makes a lot of use of the height speakers with off-camera voices as well as effects). Suffice to say that they're staying right where they are, and I'm about to get a third pair for when 7.2.6 is realistically affordable. Don't let the price put you off. These speakers are legitimate performers, affordable as opposed to cheap, and I suspect you'd have to spend an awful lot more to get a minimal improvement.

      Quality product & good price but Geek Squad issues

      I gave these speakers 4 stars since they have not been installed yet. I already have Polk speakers, so I know the quality of their products, and Best Buy offered them at a great sale price. My issue is with the Geek Squad. I had an in home consultation, and while nice folks, I was very disappointed! The consultant recommended speakers that were not the best compliment for my existing speakers, A/V equipment, and the physical layout of my media room. I ended up looking at what was available and making my own recommendations. When I asked my consultant, he agreed with my choices (I asked him to feel free to disagree if he thought my picks were not the best). I noted the rear speakers I chose were listed as “not available”. My consultant said he could get them, but after 5 days when I saw no progress, I reached out to share this info only to then get a call back telling me they weren’t available (wasted time). The next step was an on-site survey. I expected that the person who was coming out would make sure installation could be done the way I wanted it done. What I got was someone who wasn’t sure of anything, so he had to call someone for assistance over the phone. The survey ended with my being told that it might be ok, but on the day of the install if they start cutting holes in my ceiling for the speakers and find something unexpected, the install would not be done. This is info that should be known before any holes are cut. I decided to bring an electrician in who did a 5 minute survey of my walls and ceiling, and said based on the way my home was constructed, as well how my previous electrician installed my current in wall rear speakers and recessed ceiling lights, that the install could be done without any issues, so I canceled out with Best Buy. Again, all nice people, but based on my experience, the Geek Squad should not attempt to offer high end audio video solutions.

      Finally got around to replacing three in-ceiling speakers (left /center/right). The existing speakers were builder's grade that came with the house. When I finally tested the existing speakers and determined they were functional, the home theater bug kicked in and I decided to attempt a meager upgrade. The Polks were on sale for $60 each and seemed like a lot of bang for the buck considering they're listed on the mfr website for $200. At least I believe they're the same speaker as the model number is slightly different on the mfr's website, but the appearance and specs are the same. Installation was relatively simple as I was replacing existing speakers. Just had to enlarge the holes an inch. They sound decent with a moderate AV receiver. After I installed them I listened to a pair of B & W ceiling speakers at Magnolia and the difference was appreciable. As was the price. You pay for what you get, but for $60 each I believe they're hard to beat. In summary I think they're decent for the money. I may purchase two more to replace the builder grade surrounds and possibly add some insulation around them as recommended by the mfr.

      I purchased these for my living room, installed everything and got it tuned right and I must say I’m very impressed with the sound. They are great speakers for the price. I purchased on sale for 59.99, defiantly even worth the 99 a speaker. Build quality is excellent as well. The mounting hardware takes away drilling so many holes and adding drywall anchors. The simple screw and clip on the rear of the speaker is genius design. Overall if your thinking of adding surround sound to your place and don’t want to pay $199 for each speaker get these and you won’t be disappointed.

      Purchased these to replace JVC ceiling speakers that were installed back in the 70’s. Yes they were that old. They still had a decent sound but I knew technology had greatly improved over the years so it was time for an upgrade. I had looked at these a few times and had been debating on these or the Yahama speakers. I decided on the Polk because I purchased Polk outdoor speakers for the patio last year and was not disappointed. Same for these. These speakers have an excellent sound and excellent bass response. I have never gone wrong with any Polk purchase. Would most definitely purchase again.

      Purchased 6 pairs of VT60 speakers to replace existing surround sound speakers. The sound is great from this setup...very loud and clear. Prior experience with in-wall speakers hasn't been that great (contractor grade speakers and 16 yrs old). The installation was extremely easy. Trace the template, cut a hole and slide into place. The sound quality is very good. I will admit, I'm not an audiophile, but I did find the music to be clear and the quality is very good enough for my kitchen and bedroom. The open box excellent price was perfect and the sound is also very good. I highly recommend these speakers.

      Polk a well known brand that last and do what they are suppose to do, Without breaking the bank, bought these to support Dolby Atom also running Polk L/C/R in front, the rear surround another brand but sound very good alone with a Velodyne VX sub for added sound effects & bass. My theater has all Polk.

      If you have access in your ceiling, these speakers are easy to install. I installed these devices as surround speakers for my TV room. The low-profile covers for the speakers make them disappear into the ceiling. Have had a number of visitors and I have to point out the speakers for them to be noticed. These speakers provide clear sound and make great surround speakers as well as all-channel stereo music to fill the room.
