    Great little speakers for the price

    I have a relative low basement ceiling and wanted to use ceiling speakers for side surround sound speakers for the home theater. All my other speakers are Klipsch. Taking them out of the box, I was first impressed with how well them seem to be made. The instructions are good and these were a snap to install. Truly, they cannot get much easier. If you have to take one out because you forgot and left your flashlight in the ceiling opening,...well, that is easy too. With my surround sound receiver, I am able to isolate the sound of each speaker pair. I am quite pleased with the sound, both with the TV and with music. Both highs and lows are reproduced well. These are not high end speakers so don't expect sound that knocks your socks off but, for the price they do a good job. As surround speakers, they add a dimension that was missing before and do it well. If I have any complaints, the aluminum cover is a bit flimsy and will bend easily so be careful when you are putting it on. The look just fine and unobtrusive once installed.

    Amazing

    I was very skeptical about in-ceiling speakers. In the past, I have known them to sound boxy and vibrate the ceiling or wall where they are installed. These are amazing. Not only are they "vibration-free", but the sound is very crisp as well. I have four of these in the ceiling in the rear of my home theater, with a pair of vintage electrostatic Magnepans (the ones with the true mylar ribbon tweeters) and Pioneer tower speakers for the front channels (A+B), with a Polk center channel. I am powering everything through a Pioneer Elite VX-53 receiver, with a Sony Elite Series STRDA-3100ES as a secondary amplifier/receiver. I have a true 9.1 setup and it wouldn't sound anywhere near as good as it does if I didn't have those rear channel Klipsch's installed. It blends amazingly well. I prefer these much more than my Bose rear channel speakers. The sound quality and clarity is double that of the Bose.

    Exceptional sound for a small surround speaker

    I wanted a less invasive surround speaker. I am a die hard Klipsch enthusiast and still use my 1985 Klipsch Heresy speakers. So, I opted to install these small speakers built into the wall. The result: not only looks better, BUT THE SOUND IS MUCH BETTER than my Klipsch SS.5 that I was using. So, not only did I end up with a better overall look, but I got an improvement in sound quality. This is an excellent speaker if you want to install the speaker into the wall, never have to worry about it again, especially if you can hardwire the connectivity one time, mount a wall bracket, employ the banana plugs, and then you're good to go for the next 20-30 years! And you can paint the speaker rim and grilles to match the paint color on your wall. Outstanding.

    Pleasantly surprised by how good these sound

    I purchased a pair of these Klipsch speakers for sound in my dining room and living room area. I expected decent sound from Klipsch but had reasonably low expectations regarding a nice full sound. Installation of these speakers was very simple and clean. The hardest part for me was running wires but that's due to having imbecile builders that closed up the walls before running the wires. The speakers have a very clean, full sound and considering their size, they have plenty of clean bass for my application. I can play these soft or loud and they sound great. In true Klipsch form they perform with low power better than most small speakers. I can't recommend these highly enough for their performance, fit and finish, and price.

    I bought these speakers to replace some that used to sit on the floor behind my TV viewing sofa. Unfortunately my grandkids decided they were good stepping stools - and since the speakers were facing upwards, well let me just say that was not the best way to take care of those old speakers. Now with the ceiling mounted speakers, I do not have to worry about the grandkids ruining them. So far I am pleased with the speakers and they do work well when I play a Blu-Ray video that has good stereo/dolby sound. I used the boxes they were shipped in - upside down over the speakers, next to the drywall in the attic, to keep the insulation from getting into the speaker area.

    LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT GEEK SQUAD. AT FIRST I WAS A LITTLE HESITANT BECAUSE OF THE CHEAP PRICE BUT AFTER THE INSTALLATION I WAS GLAD THEY DID IT. I HAD 5 SPEAKERS INSTALLED IN MY LIVING ROOM BY GEEK SQUAD. THEY RAN THE WIRES THROUGH THE CEILING AND HAD THE PROPER EQUIPMENT TO DO IT. DIDNT REALIZE IT WOULD TAKE 8 HOURS FOR THE INSTALLATION I WAS GLAD THEY DID IT, BECAUSE I WAS THINKING OF DOING IT MYSELF. LOL.. I WOULD REALLY RECOMMEND THEM! SPEAKERS HAVE GREAT VOICE AND ARE VERY CLEAR. SOMETIMES IT FREAKS ME OUT THOUGH BECAUSE THE REAR SPEAKERS COME UP WITH SOME UNIQUE SOUNDS THAT YOU WOULD NEVER HEAR FROM THE TV. I THINK I MADE A GOOD CHOICE ESPECIALLY FOR THE PRICE. ACTUALLY BEST BUY MATCHED AMAZON PRICE...PRETTY AWESOME!

    I have heard all inwall brands.these are absolutely the best sounding speaker out there for the money.unless you are buying definitive technology which has the best sound period at 3-4 times the price these will play loud and clear for a fraction of the cost.I highly suggest you have professional installation for accurate location imaging.placement is huge on home theater!I have 7 of these in my ceiling for an atmos system.they sound incredible.and thanks to geek squad they where installed properly and imaged well!

    Little over-priced

    Bought this on an impulse without doing any research. Brought it home and for some reason I thought it had 2 speakers. The sound was good when we tested but ultimately needed 2 speakers. Was going to go back and buy a second speaker when I could do the yamaha 2 way I. Ceiling speakers. Ended up returning this one and bought the Yamaha -2 speakers for the same price as this one with fantastic sound. Would recommend this one to those not looking for a bargain.

    Always a fan of Klipsch, bought and installed these and have been VERY happy with the results! Replaced my Klipsch RSX-4 speakers (which were excellent) for a lower profile setup. Installation was easy, thanks to the design and template that comes in the package. Quality is excellent and the profile is quite discreet. For surround speakers, these actually have some notable bass response and general power. Very happy!

    Just What I Wanted

    These speakers were the first thing I bought for my new kitchen, about 9 months ago. I specifically wanted Klipsch because I like their "warm" sound. My LR speakers are also Klipsh. The kitchen is finished and the speakers are in. They sound great and blend into the ceiling nicely. My contractor, who used to do sound for bands, went out and bought the same speakers for his kitchen!

    I now have these speakers in 6 rooms. I had Bose Speakers in one room and surprisingly the sound didn't compare, so they got replaced too. They were easy to install - the most cumbersome aspect was running all the speaker wire to central location. Remember to purchase something to cover the speakers if they are in your attic to keep dust out - A problem here in the desert.

    These speakers look great and sound just fine so far. I did not rate it higher because they come in a color that is an off-brown. I know they can be painted, but the color they come in does not match any color in my house. I thought they would be white. I have no choice but to paint them, and that is messy and a pain. I wish they were simply white to begin with.

    Best sounding speakers out. I never heard of these speakers until I walked into Best Buy. My intent was to look for Bose speakers but found out that these were better and the actual movie theaters use the same speakers. I have them located throughout my house in the ceiling and outside. Awesome sound. Great for my football games.

    These speakers were recommended to us by the Geek Squad when we installed surround sound. The installation of these speakers (3 of them) was very professional and they have greatly improved the sound of our TV and audio equipment. I wish I had installed them a year ago. Additionally, they are much more attractive than other speakers I have seen.

    I bought these over the Polk's because these had a fuller sound. I didn't realize at the store that the color was different between the Polk's and Klipsch's. Probably the Polk's would have matched my ceiling a little better, but still happy with the sound. I use these in the living room just for some basic 2 channel music.

    I bought ten speakers to do my living room and theater in surround sound. The company that wired my house wanted to charge me $99/hr to install speakers. (Their speakers were $160 each!) I think I saved about $500 in labor doing the install myself, and $600 on the speakers.

    This speaker sounds just as good as a high end speaker for a fraction of the price. I have these placed as patio speakers outside and we crank it up when in the pool. It is very clear with no distortion and holds up to the weather elements.

    I installed these speakers in my first home and they were amazing. It was only right that I stick with the great quality speaker that Klipsch provides. If you're looking for great sound for your theater room these are a perfect choice.

    I bought this for the background sound on our 5.1 ceiling mounted sound system. I was surprised how good they were. The salesman really helped me pick the best value/quality. I could have spent more and not gained anything.
