I would take Prestigeaudio's advice by a grain of salt. He concluded with extreme prejudice without any testing, listening impressions and comparisons that the Micca 8 are...
They don't even have a real crossover and use a cheap silk dome tweeter, cheap mica woofer, and small magnet - just like every other "contractor" entry level cheap in-ceiling on the market.
I asked him if he's ever heard them and he avoids the question. I even gave him a link to the speaker which clearly
shows a 6th order crossover network. There are capacitors and resistors. In his mind, spending hundreds more is the way to go. That may be true to a certain extent. But, how much more
are you getting? 50%? 70%?...20% He has no idea because he hasn't compared them to anything else. Now, if he tested the Micca to these other offerings with honest, unbiased testing, then I can take him a little seriously. But at this point, he's a joke.
