I have the 8" speakers and like them a lot. They provide plenty of bass when powered properly and have a smooth natural sound. I would go with 8" speakers unless you have a subwoofer. The extra two inches of speaker will give you a little bit deeper bass.

I agree. If you have a subwoofer go with the 6 1/2" speaker if you don't go with the 8". I've used both the micro-flange and older style monoprice speakers. The micro-flange were better, but not that much. It would be worth the extra effort to get the 4104s if you are not planning on using a subwoofer.

Thank you, based on this and Daniel's comments I'll probably go with the 8".

What do you mean, "powered properly"? What's the best way to figure out how to power a particular set of speakers? Will the popular AudioSource AMP 100 be sufficient, and how can I tell?

Please, teach me to fish...

Hello I installed 12 of the 4103's (6.5' ceiling speaker) in my brand new house. I have to say these things sound pretty bad. I cant believe they have such good reviews. Can anyone recommend a replacement for these?eek.gif

A little more info is needed. What are you using to power them? What is the room(s) size? Is out for while home audio use for music or theater applications? Do you have, or plan on having a subwoofer?

im powering them with a yamaha rxv-675. This is in a pretty big living room/kitchen. about 15'x30' with 9' ceiling. hardwood floor everywhere. I am using an 18" uxl-18 in a sealed box. When I added the subwoofer the sound obviousely improved a lot but to me it just sound off. like there are frequencies missing or something

You are powering 12-speakers with a 7-channel amp. What are you using for impedance matching? Are you using volume controls on each zone? If so how do you have the impedance correction jumpers set up?

Also do you happen to have any Audesey settings in use on your Yamaha? I noticed when I first used the 7604s I had the equalizer setting on my receiver set to the audysey calibration from my old speakers and it sounded horrible. I turned of the equalizer it sounded better, then ran audysey and it was much better.

Hi, I've never had a home theatre system, but will be putting 7.1 system into my new house.  I was attracted to the low price and positive reviews on these monoprice in-wall and ceiling speakers, and would like some advice/suggestions on my proposed setup.  My seating area is about 7.5 feet from the wall with the tv and lcr speakers, the surround speakers are even with the seating area on the left and right, and the surround back  about 2 feet behind the seating area on the ceiling.  

 

6317 for the center channel

6816 for the front left/right and side surround left/right speakers

4929 for the surround back left/right

4928 for the sub w/an audiosource 100 amp/bridged to drive it.

 

I will use the Sony STR-DH740 as the receiver to drive everything.

Does this setup sound reasonable, am I making any obvious mistakes?

 

Thanks

One idea may be to tweak the switch on the speaker that raises and lowers the treble for different wall and ceiling types.

Second idea would be to play with the listening modes such as 5.1, all channel stereo, etc. (equalizer settings too).

Third would be to investigate your sources. The six inch speakers should be crossed over at 80 Hz or higher. That will conserve valuable power from the AVR.

Are your sources 5.1, MP3s, Pandora?

I wouldn't waste my time with an in-wall subwoofer. The Monoprice Premium Subwoofer will outperform the 4928 in-wall at less money. If you have any extra money I'd suggest upgrading to a HSU or SVS subwoofer.

Agreed. Or if you want a lot of bang for your buck, check out the BIC F12 (on Amazon for about $200) -- that's probably what I'm going to get to go with my Monoprice in-walls.

I'll look into it.  My girlfriend doesn't want any visible speakers because it's such a small area.  She thinks we should just use the TV speakers or get a soundbar.  I've talked her into the in-wall option, I'll see how she feels about a subwoofer in the corner.  

 

Thanks.

^^ have you considered a DIY sub?? I made mine into an oversized end table and my wife loves it. You could easily integrate a sub (or two) if you hide them as room decor.
