If you are looking for a flushed look in your ceiling this is definitely the speaker. I wanted my speakers mounted in the ceiling and didnt want the distraction of bulky bookshelf speakers hanging down. I opted for the JBL in ceiling and i'm glad I did. Pretty simple for installation. It comes with a cutout you put on the ceiling/wall and trace the outline. Then you use a drywall saw cut the hole, place the speaker in and tighten the screws. The screws turn the locking tab mechanism that holds the speaker into the ceiling. The sound is very good not tinny as ive read with some of the Polk in ceiling speakers. IT does lack some mid range as it is a 2 way speaker but fills rich highs and good bass. Overall tinkering with the EQ on my receiver set the sound just perfect. Plenty of power for home theater use actually purchased 3 pair for a 7.1 system. You wont go wrong with these speakers!!

I bought these speakers on JBL's ebay store. They were remanufactured and I got them for a steal. I bid on my speakers and got them for under $100 for the PAIR! Installation is easy once you get the speaker cable run and they sound fantastic. I was planning on getting a powered subwoofer to run off of my harmon/kardon receiver, but I really don't need it. They have plenty of bass response and the mids and highs are crystal clear. I especially like how you can swivel the tweeters to achieve optimum staging.

Great speakers for any room in the house. I have them for home theater and the house shakes! not recommend if people live on the other side of the wall/ceiling/floor from you; they will complain. hahaha

I was expecting a little pop in low end with these being 8 inches. I have some Polk 6inch ceiling speakers that have more bottom end it seems. Gonna try and build a cabinet of sorts in the rafters to see if that helps

As an A/V installer these speakers put out a good amount of sound & get the job done at the sell price- However, the main reason I give them only 2 stars is simple..... The metal mesh speaker grills WILL fall off of the speakers at some point!!!! In my experience with this unbelievable DANGEROUS liability is that even if you put putty around the grill it can still fall causing a huge potentially bad situation & enormous inconvenience!! Hey Harmon, ever hear of magnetic grills?!!!!!! Yes one fell off & hit a patron.

Installed four of these as part of a media upgrade. Crank these up, they can handle it and provide perfect surround sound. Super easy to install.

Ordered 3 pairs for my home theater system and just absolutely love them. The speakers look very nice once mounted. The sound is awesome. My family and I have seriously enjoyed our home theater all in thanks to the sound system. Puts out awesome audio. In fact, I currently don't have a sub woofer cause it blew and the sound still sounds awesome. I get alot of compliments on these speakers on the way they look and the sound they reproduce.

I installed a pair of these in my master bathroom and the sound is incredible! I have them hooked up to my HK Receiver and the sound is crisp and the bass is solid. In my opinion, I can not imagine a better set of ceiling speakers out there. These speakers also have movable tweeter cones so you can point the highs directly where you want them to go. I highly recommend.
