Well written. I have some in-ceiling speakers from monoprice and they are good speakers (for in wall) If I could have fit in bookshelves I would have but for the application I use them in I am happy with them.

Erin,

Nice review. I've always wondered if the Monprice speakers were any good. I've always stuck with 'name brand' speakers, including for in-walls. Will have to try some out for the price.

Erin,
Good review. I did want to point out a few (possible) clerical errors. In the beginning you list the speakers as being $53.13 each (2-9 speakers) then in the final thoughts section you list them as $55 shipped per pair. That is about 1/2 the price mentioned earlier. I would suggest only listing the price once or at leastr change the price in the beginning to a "per pair" price. I checked Monoproce and they list the price as: $54.40 (pair) for one set or the $53.13 (2-9 pairs) and even more savings as you buy more pairs.

Also the link on the HTS home page to get to the actual review is missing. The review seems to be broken up into posts (looks more like a forum posting for each section).

Hate to pick it apart - the content was great but just needs a little polish for HTS's normal quality and a typical reader's expectations.

That's actually the Monoprice link itself. I didn't title it. I just provided the link to the product and that's how it's provided on their site. I'll give the link a name to remove their words.

I'll have to talk to Sonnie about that. I didn't even know he linked it to the front page.

Edit: Looks to be working for me. LMK if it still is broken on your end and I'll pass the info along to Sonnie.

I'm not offended. ;)

Yea. They're not hi-fi by any means but if you want sound at a really budget price, I think they'd be tough to beat. I don't have a lot of personal experience with in-wall speakers so all I can base my assessment on in regards to value is response and distortion vs price. Hopefully as I go I can test some more in-wall speakers. I think that's going to be (if not already) a pretty common application and a lot of people would benefit from the testing.

Thanks for the review Erin, I have seen lots of positive thoughts on these speakers, but usually not from someone who has experience with (for lack of a better term) "good speakers" to use as a baseline. They seem to fall pretty much where I thought they would, as a great budget performer, but not ideal for critical listening. You certainly can't blame them for that at $50/pair.

Thanks for the feedback guys. It's given me motivation to do some more in wall speaker testing.

bump this up...

I installed these in my garage about 6 months ago and so far they're still doing well. I use an old Denon AVR-587 receiver to power them and listen to the various sources (radio, PC, etc) through them when I'm working in the garage. So, if someone is looking for a hidden install setup for garage/patio/etc tunes, I'd have no problem recommending them for that. Still, though, I wouldn't use these as a hi-fidelity in-wall speaker.

This is a great idea Erin! I usually used old, de-commissioned speakers in the garage, but these would be great for 'background' music and not take up any extra space.
