In for information.

My bro-in-law just bought a new house with an unfinished basement, and he wants a home theater setup to rival my own. He likes the idea of in-wall's so I have narrowed it down to Monoprice or the Dayton in-wall's and parts express.

Does anyone have any experience with both brands? Thoughts?

Size of backerbox

I am finishing my basement and setting up a 5.1 home theater. I am sing the new Sony Core bookshelf and center speakers for my fronts. I just purchased a pair of monoprice in-wall speakers, MSQ-650-1Y (6.5" 2-way) new in box from a friend to use as surrounds.

Since my walls are open at this time I am thinking of putting backer boxes in for my speakers. Dose putting these in help the sound? And how big should they be? Should they be air tight or just getting any type of box back there okay? Also should the box I make be empty or filled with something like insulation?

what the reason?

I am tempted to pick up 4 - 7607 speakers for front left and right heights (using the 8 inch 3 ways for regular left and rights) and surrounds, but everyone keeps talking about the 7604's

what gives?

I never saw a response to this and am curious as well. Is there something about the 7604s that makes them a fan favorite? The 6816s are bigger and are three-way; does that by default make them better?

I'm interested as well.

Well...put my money where my interest lies. In for two pair of 6816, 8" 3 way in-walls. We'll see how they do. Going with 6816s for LCR and will have one left over if anyone else is interested. They were on sale over the weekend for $75...may still be. JUNE10 is a 10% off coupon code also.

I've been searching all over on the difference between the 4104 and 4929 8" ceiling speakers. Finally just did a live chat with Monoprice and got a definitive answer-- thought I'd share here for anyone else looking down the road. Long story short, the speakers should be functionally identical except the 4929 speakers are aimed 15 degrees off-axis. The rep said the application is for surround speakers or for vaulted ceilings. Outside of these applications, there's no reason not to go for the 4104 since they're substantially cheaper.
