Great Product


from New Jersey  -  Audiophile

I received 2 sets of these speakers as a gift, which was perfect because I was looking to replace my current front and rear surround speakers. The install was quick and easy and they look and sound great. My surround sound never sounded so good. I watch a lot of movies and listen to a lot of music and I have to say these speakers rock. I also have a yamaha 7.1 receiver and a powered subwoofer and they all comp-liment each other great.Thank you Yamaha for making such great audio equipment.

Excellent Product


from Trenton, MI  -  Audiophile

This product was fairly easy to install. Being Tech Savy but not mechanically inclined, I had the ceiling tiles cut by a carpenter and then installed the speakers. The two speakers were mounted into the ceiling and working within 30 minutes. Hooked right up into my remote transmitter for my wireless back end of my Home theater system. Music, 5.1 broacasts from television, and movies all sound great.

Great Sound and Easy Install


from Memphis TN  -  Practical

Easy install with the template provided and the instructions were easy to understand. For the price I couldn't have found a better speaker for my daughter's stereo. Having installed a set of wall speakers earlier these certainly added to the sound quality!

Good sounding speaker, great value


from Houston  -  Practical

Bought these since they had good reviews. Sound is excellent, and helps to have adjustable tweeter direction. Priced right! Installing in ceiling was very easy. The only negative is the aluminum grill. Not easy to install and bent one trying to get it in. Gave up on using the black glue strips - too messy/difficult. Yamaha said they would ship a replacement. Good service.

Questions about this item:

Dave V  Is it possible to get a white grill? Thanks Dave
MICHAEL K  The speakers come with a white wire mesh grille that covers the speaker components. The instructions state that the grille can be painted to match your walls or ceilings. We have white ceilings in the rooms we installed into and they look great. Sound good and look good Good luck
