I will try to make this short and to the point. I have a brand new home that I had wired out prior to completion with the expectation of running ceiling speakers. After looking around and comparing prices from all over, I came across these. The ratings where high and the reviews all sounded great so I pulled the trigger and bought 4 sets of these allowing me to put two in the master beroom and the other two sets in the living room.

After using the supplied cutout and marking off the hole all that was left was to make the cuts and hook them up. Each unit took roughly 5-10 minutes to put in the ceiling. The units were very well constructed and the cardboard template was very nice rather than the flimsy paper ones that some supply.

As for the sound, WOW! That's all I can say. I hooked these up to my roughly 4 year old yamaha and that rocked out hitting notes that were high all the way down to mid's and lows. I turned my sub off to see what kind of bass these would put out and it was very good and not distorted even at almost maxed out levels on the reciever.

If your looking to spend money on ceiling speakers and don't want to spend a fortune but want great sound, these are for you! I would buy these again without even thinking twice. Hope this helps

This speaker is good only at this price point. If price is at any higher than what it is, it'd make it not worth it. I'll review this based on the price first. The build quality of the frame looks very good. Feels like it'll last for a long time. The woofers are said made of polypropylene which feels like heavy paper. Again for the price, it's good.

As for the sound, for the price again, it sounds acceptable. You will probably not find any better sounding speaker at this price point. This doesn't have any circuitry (crossover) behind the speaker at all, hence the front only picture. The back side of the speaker has some "cheap" feel/look to it but I'm guessing that's necessary for their price target.

Now comparing it to a slightly more expensive competition, to a yamaha priced at $20 dollars higher (IW280C). The sound of this speaker is lacking clarity compared to the said yamaha. I compared them side by side using same speakerwires and on the floor before install. This pyle performed acceptable but still way below yamaha's especially in terms of clarity. With the yamaha I could hear vibrating guitar strings more clearly and also the swoosh of the wind blowing were more noticeable than they were on this speakers. The details of sound are very different. I guess a good analogy would be TV Screen, it's 1080p vs 720p. Different to people that can notice.

Now for people looking for very shallow round speaker, this is for you. It's only about 3.5 inch deep because of lack of circuitry behind (crossover). You won't find any shallower round speaker than that. For me, I had special need for shallow one and this one fit perfect.

Now, the 2 stars, it's because it performed significantly lower than the slightly expensive competition. Maybe 4 times lower. It's not angled speakers (a must for surround), no circuitry behind (to help on sound routing), paper-like woofers (easier to blow out), not enough richness (for hi def feel), and cheap wire connectors (to make good signal transfer). Not worth the $20 savings against yahama's cheapest model.

There's no doubt that this is the best at this price point. Pyle has been making car speakers for years and this is what it exactly looks, feels, and sounds like. Remember though that cars have different acoustics than living rooms that's why speakers in your car sound fantastic. But in open areas, they won't perform as well. In your car you are "sandwiched" between speakers while in living room you are showered with sound (as far as ceiling speakers go).

My recommendation, add extra couple bucks to go to the next cheapest, so you leap yourself forward to a future-proofer system. No extra couple of bucks? Hold off and save. Can't hold off anymore? Then this is the perfect speaker for you. No doubt.

I hope this is helpful enough for people trying to decide.

For less than $50, these are an outstanding deal - cheaper than what I could have bought at Home Depot/Lowes. Wanted a set of white inexpensive ceiling speakers for the formal dining room - wife holds occassional card games and other women group functions in there and wanted some background music. These Pyle speakers were perfect: inexpensive, sounds good (though it does lack bass - but hey when you get a gaggle of women playing cards they don't care or appreciate the fact that the bass level is lacking). Very easy to install (it takes more time to run the speaker wiring up in the attic than to install the speakers). Make sure you have a wall board hand saw, a good stud finder (make sure there are no studs located on the other side of the ceiling where you want to install the speakers), and a Shop Vac (for the clean up). I would definitely buy these again and would recommend them.

I recently installed these in a 12x16 room and was pleasantly surprised at the richness of the bass and overall sound. Installation was straight forward with no problems using audioquest flx in-wall speaker cable. I use them for music and was quite satisfied beyond my expectations since I thought I would need a subwoofer to round out the sound quality to my liking. Seems like the more I play them the better they sound. I don't blast my music so not sure what the upper range of loudness is like but I turned them up pretty good and they still sounded great. I would buy them again.

Got a big roll of quality wire. Ran lengths from stereo in family room (to a speaker channel selector) then to the attic for second floor in ceiling speakers to supply tunes for 2 of the bedrooms. Now we don't have to have the music turned up super load to hear the music upstairs!
These speakers do the trick. Nice for listening to talk radio in the morning getting ready for work or having whole house music for parties / doing chores on the weekend.

The cost on these speakers was absolutely great. Have a new home and needed several of them to complete our surround system. They look very throughout our home.

I am a professional installer and have used these speakers in many installations. They work Perfectly/Awesome/Incredible. Purchase a high quality center channel and sub and you will rock !! A Great Deal!

I was somewhat skepticle about purchasing these speakers to install throughout my home as part of my audio video system. As many of you may have aksed the question, what is the difference between premium speakers and inwall speaker with a lower price point. After reading several reviews, i purchased and installed 12 of pyle speaker, they were easy to install. After powering the speaker up, i must admit they sound great for their price. I glad that i did not purchase premium speakers.
