    I purchased these speakers to improve the audio imaging in my 24x24 garage. Initially the speaker system was comprised of JBL left and right speakers and a POLK subwoofer placed in the back of the garage. The sound was OK, but I knew that it could be better. I chose these Klipsch speakers to mount in the ceiling in the front of the garage. These ceiling speakers would blend in better to the surroundings so as to not make it look like I had speakers everywhere in the garage. I want the attention placed on the listening experience rather than looking at an eye catching speaker system. These speakers meet my needs. They disappear and now the music surrounds me... PURE JOY! Just enough sound reinforcement to do the job. Because the ceiling is open to the roof trusses, I needed to place these speakers in an enclosure. Not being an expert in acoustics, I chose to purchase the Klipsch accessory (fire rated) speaker enclosures made for these speakers. This way I can be certain that the speakers would be able to deliver the acoustic quality that they were designed to deliver across the entire audio spectrum. Best Buy missed the mark on this vital accessory because they don’t carry it as far as I can tell. So I ordered it from the Big “A”. Boy am I glad that I did! A very high quality speaker enclosure that is easy to install. Other notable attributes include speaker efficiency @94. They sound great and don't place heavy demands on the 30 watt amp that drives them. The speaker grills are held in place tightly by magnets... nice. You will never need to ever be concerned that the grills will not become loose over the years... vital for ceiling speaker placement. Also you get 2 sets, either round or rectangle so you can choose the shape that best complements your interior design. They are white in color but can easily be spray painted to any color you choose.

    Surprised

    I had Polks in the wall and wanted to change up because I wasn’t getting the range I thought I should have and when it came to playing music, the room wasn’t getting filled as I thought I could be. I have Polks in the ceiling for surround but thought I would take a plunge and try these for right and left front speakers for watching movies and to use the for 5 channel stereo when listening to music. I’ve been pleasantly surprised when it came to having them installed in the ceiling. Not disappointed at all. I’ve owned this brand for a long time and wasn’t disappointed with the tower speakers that I had but gave away. I regret doing that but I needed to make some room when we bought the new house. At any rate, these speakers are heaven sent. All I have to do now it clean up the wall that I had the Polks in. I will be putting the Polks in my master bathroom just to keep from wasting them but when it comes to clean sound and the enjoyment of movies, these fill the gap I had before and the room with music. I listen to a lot of jazz and they are just magnificent.

    I recently purchased a new home and decided to upgrade my home theater. Purchased the SVS ultra bookshelf, center speakers, 2 subs and a denon 3300. I had limited choices for surround speakers due to placement so I decided to install ceiling speakers despite reading ceiling speakers do not immerse the listener in the home theater. Purchased the klipsch and put 2 slightly behind the couch and 2 on side and ran the audyssy eq denon tool and very happy with the over all sound. The klipsch match quite well with the svs speakers and the audyssy tool tool did a great job correcting the distance, eq etc. I do think my surround bubble requirement is met and not bad for the price. I was considering some of the higher end klipsch where you can aim the tweeter but don't think they are needed once I got these installed because the sound is what I prefer. Hope this helps someone. Thx

    Recently purchased these to round out a 5.1.2 sound system in a room that is roughly 15x20. I installed these for my Pioneer Elite SC-LX502 AVR in the "height" input. This addition was to add to my ATMOS capability for middle overhead height speakers. For the price point you can ask for anything better. I have been a long time fan and procurer of Klipsch speakers and these do not fail to impress for a 6 1/2" in ceiling single direction speaker. I would have loved to upgrade to a multi-direction in ceiling speaker but for this specific setup and sound space it was not necessary. Setup was incredibly easy, the blueprints match exactly what you need! Took about 2 hours to cut the holes in the ceiling, run wire through walls to AVR and hook up. Cheers!

    The pros: Good clean clear sound for the price, and very easy to install. Looks great with the magnetic paintable flush mount grills and was happy they came with additional square shaped grills as well. The cons: these are very basic speakers they don't have swivel tweeters or drivers to aim the sound. There isn't and visible crossover or coils on backside of the speaker. I was very surprised that these are marketed as Reference series especially without the copper colored cones. But they do sound great for the rear channels of my surround sound and get the job done they blend and fill in evenly. But there are better alternatives for a little extra money.

    We were finishing our basement and in home consultant recommended some other speakers for our surround sound system. The cost was more then we were willing to pay. We then came across these speakers and after researching them and speaking with consultant opted to purchase them. We have not been disappointed. Great sound and makes it seem like you are in the theater. Well worth the price and you can't really tell difference from the original speakers we were recommended to buy. Pairs great with Klipsch subwoofer!

    With a vaulted ceiling extending to 18+ feet, even the spoken voice transmits effortlessly in the room we had designed to accommodate true surround sound. While it is well known that the Klipsch name is "legendary" for sound production, it is still hard to believe that only 6-1/2" speakers present such power. In combination with all the other equipment, the audio experience is being within a concert hall - not just a member of the audience with sound projecting out - but within the orchestra itself.

    I personally am a huge Klipsch fan. To me they produce the right sound, and compared to like speakers at a similar price, these speakers are great. If your looking for a budget speaker for home audio, I highly recommend these. I bought these for the middle and rear speakers of my home theater 7.1 front are Klipsch towers and center. Pros: great highs, good mid. Clean look. Sound good for movie or music. Cons: fixed position tweeters.

    I built a new home and needed some rear speakers for a 5.1 configuration that could be hidden providing a balanced surround sound . These speakers have a great sound in a small package. The other speakers are Klipsch bookshelf speakers, a Klipsch 10" woofer with a Klipsch - Reference Series Quad 3-1/2" 400-Watt Passive 2-Way Center-Channel Speaker combining to make a great surround sound.

    Bought the speakers about a month ago and are very satisfied. Sound is great and about an easy of an install as there can be for in-ceiling speakers. These are the third set of Klipsch speakers I've purchased (got one for my computer - Pro Media 2.1 and a pair of bookshelf ones to complete my surround sound set up) and I've yet to be disappointed.

    Great to install and super smooth feeling. Price point is ok but spending a little less on Polks gave me better sound. I have a full Klpisch system for my theater room and it make the Atmos sound amazing. Probably taking them back to buy more Polks for the additional speakers but again easy and ok for price.

    I installed them about a 2 weeks ago for Dolby Atmos. Great speakers. If you are looking for speakers with ability to modify direction, then check out the other Klipsch speakers. They will be more expensive.

    I love these speakers. I ordered and installed these to have rear surround with the rest of my Klipsch system in my living room. For the price, you can't beat these. Installation was straightforward even though it required cutting out junction boxes and guessing which wires in my A/V cabinet went to these particular speakers.

    Have a klipsch reference premiere system with rp-250f, rp-450c, rp-250s surrounds, 12” sub and now two of these in the ceiling and they match perfectly and sound great. Glad I didn’t spend any more than needed. For $200 a pair these are all you need.

    Easy to install in a ceiling and very good performance for rear surround speakers for the price. Much better sound than the wireless rear link I was using with the same home theater setup. These speakers add a spaciousness to the surround without drawing your ear to any specific location of the source.

    I bought an open-box pair of these speakers as rear surrounds for a 7.1 system. I especially like that the Bet Buy version (RIC-650) comes with BOTH the round and square face plates. They sound great - I even wish I had used these instead of the much more expensive CDT line in my ceiling.

    I used two pairs (4 total speakers) for my new dolby atmos set up. Once I ran the speaker wire in the ceiling the installation was easy. Speakers come with a template. Trace, cut around, drop in speaker, tighten clips, done! Takes only about 20 minutes max per speaker if even that!

    I was skeptical of in ceiling speakers opposed to floor speakers that I grew up with. Paired with the Klipsch Sub and six of these in ceiling speakers, the sounds are amazing. Dolby Atmos is phenomenal...so get a receiver with Atmos as a feature.
