Hi,

 

Got a hard deadline of Tuesday to have speakers installed :(

 

New (first) system - picked up a  Yamaha RX-V673 7.2-Channel Network AV Receiver  on Black Friday, and have 5 in-celing 6 1/2 holes to fill in living room (large open space) plus 2 in kitchen (connected), 2 in sunroom (connected) and 2 for patio.  Last 6 are on a separate zone.

 

Would greatly appreciate some recommendations on in-celing speakers for these.

 

Not looking for high-end system, just decent.  I've heard that it's not worth paying for higher-priced ones, as I have already lost a lot due to not wall mounted?  Is it worth paying more than $150/pair?

 

I looked at HTD/Monoprice but shipping is killer, so locked into Amazon or local Best Buy.

 

Not sure what to look for?  2-way or 3-way?  Different ones for front/back/zone 2?

 

Here are some I found:

 

Energy EAS-6C 6.5-inch In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair, White) $80/pair (listed $300)

Polk Audio MC60 High Performance In-Ceiling Speaker $89 EACH

Polk Audio RC60i 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair, White) $118/pair

Yamaha NS-IW280CWH 6.5" 3-Way In-Ceiling Speaker System (White, Pair) $79/pair

Yamaha - 6-1/2" 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair) - White NS-IC600 WH  $106

OSD Audio MK650 Spitfire Ultra Reference Series Kevlar Home Theatre 6.5-Inch In-Ceiling Speakers (Pair) $155

 

Thanks again!

Just noticed these - rediciously low price, but very good reviews.  Thoughts?

I had to go with in-ceiling speakers for my rear speakers. I chose the Polk RC80i and I've been impressed with them. They have a smooth sound and not too harsh.

Im currently using Polk RC60is for rear surrounds in my basement theater with a similar receiver (Yamaha RXV-661). Very satisfied! Hope this helps.

Definitive technology in-ceiling refurbished models which are angled toward the listening area are a good buy.

Hi,

I'm looking to buy some ceiling speakers for my back extension (family / meals / TV).

Looking at a maximum outlay of $350 for a pair.

Ceiling is 3.5m above floor level, room is 8.1m long, 7.5m wide.

I have been considering the opus one platinum based on some research and heard them at a friends house and they sound very good.


They will largely be used for music and time to time for the odd movie on TV etc.

Can anyone make any suggestions on other brands / models that fit into the price range based on their actual experience with the speakers?

I'm located in Melbourne is that helps.
