Not a well-known company.

Someone else makes these speakers for Theater Solutions (just like most other speaker companies). If you search the specs given for these speakers, maybe you can find a match from another company, for comparison (e.g. silk-titanium, mounting depth 2.875, etc.).

These in-ceilings aren't 'sealed' - they use the space in the ceiling as a baffle. Good if attic above, not so good if bedroom above. You may want to consider in-ceilings that come with an enclosure.

The range on these in-ceilings looks good - 30-20,000 Hz, but you don't know if it's legitimate.

Without a well-known brand name, you don't know if they're 'contractor-grade'/'architectural grade' speakers that are being marketed as something better.

I don't believe the specs, right now. Of course, I'm a skeptic. I don't believe much that people tell me - read my signature below.

The 8" look similar to the Phoenix Gold AS8C ($75), Phoenix Gold ATC8 ($100), AudioSource AS8C ($100), and TheSpeakerCompany IC-8 - going by looks. I can't find a shot of the back of any of these. Dimensions and cutouts all very similar.

I think these Theater Solutions speakers you linked are really 'architectural grade'. They show the back of the speakers, on their website (The TS80C, labelled the E80C on the back of the speaker). The electronics seem extremely simplistic, similar to architectural grade speakers. They aren't bad, but it seems Theater solutions offers some nicer speakers, at higher prices. You'd be better off spending less on another brand of cheap speakers. I don't believe the range.

Thanks Guys.

You are right the range looked like a misprint but it was on both of them at different numbers for the two sizes.

I am thinking of going with the Polks. A little more but safer.
The RC_ _ i series.

As you say safety in name brands.

The house is a one story so there is an attic above.

I am getting new stuff for a second video area.

I got energy RCLCR center and two RC mini for L & R, Prices too good to refuse.
The sub Woofer is a Yamaha thin line, I had a space issue it is 9 inches wide.
A Denon AVR790.

So I am left with a decision for the rears.
Mostly the room is for Directv, Sports and news and XBOX, No Blu-Ray.

I am not ordering till next week so if you have any ideas please feel free to pass along.
