Have had them for several months now so they've had time to break in, and these are nice, natural-sounding speakers. I listen to music CDs or concert DVDs more than movies and, when in pure stereo mode, these 960s have a very life-like staging. If you have a passive subwoofer or one with relatively low power, you may want to opt for an 8-inch single-woofer model, like the Polk MC85, that will give you a deeper response; if you have a decent sub and need your fronts to concentrate on the mids and highs, the 960s should be quite pleasing. And with handling of 150W, they can fill a decent sized room with no problem.
As far as installation, these were a breeze. Supplied is a template - simply trace it and cut out your drywall. Attach your speaker wire to the binding posts, press the speaker into the hole and tighten the 6 screws. And if you're painting them before installation, Yamaha includes a plastic tray that fits snuggly into the groove where the grill fits - just put that in place and spray paint the frames, and do the grills as well. I'd suggest spraying both sides of the grill to make sure you've covered the inside of the holes.Read more ›
If you are putting them horizontally in a stud wall, you will need to cut at least one stud out to get the clear width needed to put these in the wall. Mounting vertically they will of course fit within one stud cavity but this didn't seem right for the center channel.
I had trouble with two of the six clamps. It could be because I was installing in a commercial building with 5/8" drywall (instead of standard 1/2" in a house) because when I loosened the screw far enough to get clearance two of the toggles refused to turn to the clamp position (friction between the screw and the toggle is supposed to make it turn so it clamps the edge of the hole). Nonetheless 4 clamps seem to hold it well enough and I give it 5 stars for the appearance and sound. I'd take off 1/2 star for the mounting system if Amazon allowed it.

I'm very happy with these speakers. I'm currently using them as the front three speakers of my 5.1 set up. Mounting was very simple, especially vertically. Read morePublished 2 months ago by The Dangsta
Sound from this speaker is great. It is being used as the center speaker in my home theatre room. Fantastic deal for the price versus sound reproduction.Published 3 months ago by Jeffrey C
I use this speaker as a ceiling mounted front center speaker in a 5.1 surround system just in front of 120 inch screen. It is more than adequate with good sound and good coverage. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer
Looks good but it is not for after build install, it's over 2 feet long and would require you to cut at least one stud. Read morePublished 5 months ago by Amazon Customer

They are by far the loudest and clearest speakers I've ever heard. MUST BUY!
