Someone did a test of the Monoprice vs the Polk vs Micca Reference series and found that the Micca speakers really came out way ahead. I'm curious to try a pair myself. Luckily I just bought 4 (lightly used) Definitive Tech DI8R's for $75 each earlier today. =)
I am in the same situation as you looking for a reasonably priced inwall/ceiling speakers for HT/living room.
I am leaning towards the BIC Acoustech. 75 approximately for each. The specs on these are pretty impressive as well as the reviews. Any something to consider. I also have talked myself into placing the front R/L and center in wall as opposed to the ceiling. I plan on using this BIC for those 3 speakers http://www.bicamerica.com/showpage.p...pe=9&spkrID=27 .
Ok, I talked with an audio installer who does mostly commercial, but does some residential on the side. He said the Monoprice speakers are actually really nice. At $45 per pair, what are all your thoughts. Would I notice a big difference in quality between those and the Boston Acoustics HSi 460
