Sonance In-Ceiling Speakers?


I am needing to put some in-ceiling speakers at the home. I know there are many brands out there but don't know what's considered good, better, best, etc in terms of sound quality, etc.

The guy at Best Buy recommended:

A. Sonance - 6-1/2" (Model: MAG6R) 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers or Sonance Reg Price $599 Sale $75
B. Sonance Magnolia 8" Passive 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair), (Model: MAG8R). Reg Price $899. Sale $150

Outside of big difference in reg vs sale price, are these speakers comparable to any of the other name brands?

I'm assuming price wise its a good deal. But even at at good price, am I sacrificing quality / sound for being inexpensive?

Lastly, he mentioned 8 " speakers are better than 6'1/2" as they provide better sound, better base, etc.

Are the sale numbers the final price or the discount offered?

And yes, generally large woofer models will have much better bass, fuller sound, and play louder in terms of efficiency and power handling. Could even say they have lower distortion at similar levels because so.

Leave it at 8 ohms and call it a day :)
