Great sound and in our ceiling
Rating is based on several experiences with installing speakers in my house; these sound great and have the added mid range that helped with hearing the voice in movies. I replaced some other "expensive line" top brand speakers because I couldn't hear the voices when it was in surround sound mode, it sounded so much better I replaced all of the speakers with these. I really didn't need to put these in the rear but it was so reasonable compared to what's on the market. HTS did a great job recommending these and providing the options I needed to know about. I had to cut a larger hole but the template in the box helped, it took another hour I didn't plan but that's typical. I highly recommend these speakers.
