With your selected receiver and room size, these JBL would not be "overkill" based on their size. You should try out some different speakers to see how you like your sound. It is hard because you don't know exactly how a speaker will sound in your walls, but you can get a feel for a companies tonal signature from their bookshelf speakers.

Depending on how you are setting up the room, 5 identical speakers would work well, but you could also buy a matching center. People typically install round ceiling speakers for looks, although there are all kinds of crazy atmos setups.

I wouldn't necessarily jump on these until you try some polk and klipsch speakers to see what you like. I personally can't stand Klipsch horns and would not want them in my walls. You might think Polks and JBL sound muddy compared to Klipsch or Energy.

Are you doing an acoustically transparent screen and a projector? Or just a tv. If just a tv, you might want to go with in room speakers up front for much better price/performance, and modularity if you get a bigger tv. I am not a fan of in wall center channels below a tv! The center should be just as low as it needs to be to get out of the way of the tv.

Planning on installing a new hts for my new place next year in April. The room that it will be in is about 170 sqft with 10 foot ceilings, and I'm planning on doing a 5.1.2 setup (maybe 5.2.2 if budget permits). Receiver will be a Denon x1500h or x2500h or something of similar specs/features.

Someone tell me if I should jump on these or would I be able to spend similar for equal quality between now and April 2019? (or if these will be overkill) Main usage is movies, gaming, and streaming on a Samsung ks8000.

bonus points on a recommendation for a center channel that will match these! Thanks!!!

I must resist..... but I think wife will be happier with this than huge floor speakers.
Could these work for rears too?

Wow thanks for the in depth response!! The plan is to run out of money so I will be rocking the 60" Samsung ks8000 at least for several years

I have the SP8II for in wall fronts, Micca 8 in ceiling center and Klipsch 6.5 in ceiling rears with Denon X3400.

The SP8II are far superior to the Klipsch 6.5 in ceiling speakers. I may get another set of SP8II when I get a receiver for the livingroom.

I buy piecemeal when things are on sale. It all sounds good to me when my wallet is not so empty. I have gone to Fry's sound rooms, but it all sounds good to me. I have a Polk 8 ceiling center, but the Micca 8 sounds better to me - crisper. more authentic, like sitting right at the concert in the orchestra seating.

If I were buying, I'd spring for the 8" if any music is in the plan. Both will need a sub but 8" will help fill obvious crossover holes with music.

I am currently using monoprice 8" Amber speakers in my living room and I am very pleased with the sound they provide. They also have a magnetic grill which gives a more cleaner look than the JBLs.

Whichever you choose, I recommend the Denon X2500H (or last year's model the x2400H which will save you $ and their isn't much difference between them). The X1500H doesn't have enough power to drive either speaker.

Make sure you read up on the Audessey feature that comes with the Denon X series, and learn how to properly calibrate it, it makes a world of difference.

I bought 4 of these for in ceiling. I'm not an audiophile so my needs are not that advanced. I have a Klipsch woofer but need a center. What should I be looking at? Ideally I would like something at a similar price point as these ones. Thanks!

All that work for sound and going with that TV.... I assume you already bought it?
the ks8000 has been long discontinued, but is generally considered a very solid performer. So the snark is unfounded.

But I do believe that only the 55" and 65" quality for those solid reviews. I believe that the 60" had a completely different panel...

Anyway, I think the speakers are a pretty good deal for his setup, but agree with something more modular for flexibility
