Has anyone tried these. I am looking at the MLCR version to do all 5 speakers
and get a big powered sub to put them with.

Has anyone heard or installed any of these what did you think of them.

Here is a link:

Thanks for your time.

They are decent in-wall speakers, in my opinion. They are some of the better ones that the core BB stores offer. Others people like from BB are SpeakerCraft.

As far as the in-wall sub, it is passive and I have never liked a passive sub. In fact, I've never liked an in-wall subwoofer. There just seems to be a lot missing with an in-wall sub as far as fullness and decent bass go.

I know this thread is a little old, so I'm not sure if it's still relevant. I have a Sonance Moderno setup, and I'm very impressed with it. I'm using a MLCR for the center channel and four M6 speakers for the left, right, and surrounds.

TiVoHD:
Your speakers are what I am planing on using in my HT
(Sonance MLCR & M6) - they are wiring as I type. What did you use for your sub? Are you still happy going with the M6 for left and right front?
Did you use M6 rears in the ceiling or wall?

Thanks for any more info - there does not to be much out there.

With a name like "Moderno", they must be good!

I just got a pair of the Moderno 6.5 inch in ceiling. There not bad. I would say average build quality. They sound decent for background music though I think I may try the polk rc80i.

I have 5 MLCR's in my ht for about 9 months and have been very impressed. Music sounds very good and movies are excellent. Installation is very straightforward and for the price, I have not heard any better. They are being pushed by a Yamaha RX-v1900 and a 10" Yamaha YST SW315 sub. My living room is very open with a 20' ceiling with hardwood floors and these speakers sound very warm and clean. They fill the room very well. I like them so much that I'm going to have 3 for the front channels and 2 M6R for the rear in my basement set up.

Has anyone ever put cross braces inbetween the joists to create an enclosed box for the inwall speakers? I read somewhere that it improves the speakers performance.

Adding to an OLD thread. The basic M6 in-wall speakers are now clearing out at just $17.99 per pair at Best Buy. Hard to beat at that price.

Bummer I missed the sale, I noticed the brand isn't carried at all. I'm glad I had bought one more M6R SST (single stereo) ceiling speaker when I had the chance.

Has anyone found back boxes for these speakers? I've emailed Moderno, but never heard from them.
