Product Description

HT-8W in-wall speakers were specifically developed to exceed the demands of in-wall speakers. They incorporate pivoting 1-inch titanium tweeters that are center-mounted in their massive magnet 8-inch woofers. Their tweeters offer highs beyond audible range. For assistance in reproducing mids (lost in many other in-wall speakers), the HT-8W also include dual .5-inch poly midranges. Self resetting thermal cut-offs protect them from over-load. Metal mounting brackets are included for post-construction. Optional M-8R rough-in-kits are available for pre-construction. Ideal for use with all surround and music formats.

I recently purchased the BIC America HT8W In-Wall speakers after researching a lot of speakers. I had floorstanding speakers on my 1st floor living room but wanted something which will go in the wall as I have a 21 month old son and the in-wall look much better visually in the living room. I purchased one set of HT8W (note that when you order, one box has 2 speakers in it) and installed them as surround speakers. I was so happy with them that I turned around and purchased 2 additional speakers and installed them as the front speakers in my living room. My living room is 17feet by 20 feet with 9 feet ceilings and these speakers fill the room with beautiful sound. Their tweeters are amazing and can be pointed towards the listening position. The woofer inside the speaker gives out decent bass but you will need a subwoofer to provide adequate bass. I have a polk PSW505 subwoofer and it matches well with these speakers. Overall I am really happy. I love to listen to music and I am hearing sounds which I have never heard before. I have not installed a in-wall center speaker because I am using an existing infinity PC350 center.

Installing them in the wall was easy. I had one place where there were 2 studs which were about 7 inches apart and I got some contractor and he was able to install the speaker by mounting the screws into the 2 studs instead of using the wall bracket which comes with the speaker. For the other 3 speakers, I was able to easily mount the speakers with the bracket provided. You will need about 30 - 45 minutes per speaker for mounting if you are doing this for the first time.

These speakers should work great for movies too.. I have not watched a movie yet with the new speakers but I will update the review after watching a couple of movies.

The Bad:
The mounting system for these speakers is terrible and substandard. I mounted four I'd these. Three off them were awkward and the fourth was a nightmare that took about an hour and ended up using self tapping screws to finally finish the installation. By far the worst mounting system I've seen on any in-ceiling/wall speaker.

Once installed, they look very nice with a clean finished look. However, when the speakers are turned up, the grill covers rattle out and fall to the floor. They are made of metal, so falling onto hardwood bends the grills. In all fairness, the speakers were turned up pretty loud both times the grills fell out.

The Good:
The sound these speakers put out is amazing, even at very high levels. I just listened to the $6000 Bose TV demonstration, these speakers sound even better. I can't say enough good about them. I'd even purchase them again, despite the industry's worst mounting system and grill falling out. It's a great speaker.

Some people say that Acoustech, or Bic-America in general was trying copy Klipsch with their Acoustech line of speakers. I saw these when I was looking for some in ceiling speakers for a small bathroom. They were priced FANTASTICALLY, and I decided for that price, I might as well try them out (2 come in 1 box). I got these promptly and decided to hook them up to an Onkyo Receiver before cutting holes in the sheetrock. Within 10 seconds of hearing them, I decided to put them in the ceiling. These give my last generation Polk Audio towers a run for a smooth, punchy sound. They are a little bit bright, but the overall sound is great. I may not be an audiophile, because if I was, I also wouldn't be looking at in-wall/ceiling speakers. I do consider myself someone who appreciates a good sounding system, and I would gladly use these for surround or front's in a 5.1 or 7.1 system. These may be made in china, but they feel EXTREMELY solid. The driver, at 8" doesn't rattle your bones, but is plenty in a small to medium sized room. If put in a home theater, obviously they'd need a sub or two. The material is a metallic, heavy, piece of graphite composite. The midrange, is well secured, and you can adjust the directionality of it. The tweeter didn't feel super solid, but then again, very few are, and for good reason. I have the wiring going through an attic to a closet, where there is an Airport connected to a 110W Onkyo Receiver, so I can Airplay from Spotify over Wi-Fi. If you crank the volume up on these things, they don't even break a sweat. The only part of these that I don't like is that the instructions and mounting system are a bit confusing. If you're somewhat mechanical and intuitive, you shouldn't have an issue figuring it out.Read more ›

I bought a second pair of these for in-ceiling audio. They are very high quality and sound fantastic. Easy to mount. I don't run a lot of power through them, but their frequency range is impressive with the low-end being very surprising. One pair serves as the front L/R of a 5.1 surround system. Very suitable in this application. The other pair (in-ceiling) primarily are used for music and do a very respectable job without the need for a sub in the pool room. I will be buying more of these as I expand more audio to more rooms.
