I think people upvote these deals out of nostalgia. This same deal pops up at least once/month. In case you haven't seen this deal before, I'll sum up all the comments from the previous posts from my memory:
"good sound for the price"
"floor-standing or bookshelf speakers provide better sound than in-wall or in-ceiling"
"Yes, you'll definitely need a sub with this. I recommend..." (followed by a plethora of subs ranging from $250 - 4000)
"No, you can't connect bluetooth to this unless you get a bluetooth amp"
"These require speaker wire and will not take aux cables"

I've been a budget-audiophile for 30 years. Over the course of that time I've owned towers and bookshelves from Mirage, PSB, Elac, NHT, Monitor Audio, Pioneer (Andrew Jones), Definitive Technology, Energy, etc, etc...
I initially bought these for my home gym after trying a pair of micca mb45x's (or something like that). Those were horrible. These are NOT flimsy toy speakers. They've got some weight to them and have very rigid baffles. They sounded "ok" in my gym, but it's a terrible room for acoustics though. Square room with all hard surfaces. They're mounted in walls packed with exterior wall insulation. I'm a bachelor and I'm always doing some home renovations without someone nagging me about money, drywall dust, etc, lol. So I decided to take a chance on trying these in my main living room system. WOW! I was shocked at how good they sounded in there. Human memory as far as audio quality is concerned isn't exactly 100% accurate, but these speakers sounded "as good" as any other speaker I've owned. Not only did they sound great, they measured VERY well (relatively flat across their frequency range) using a calibrated microphone from cross spectrum labs and Room EQ wizard. I have mine mounted at seated ear height. They're mounted in interior, non/insulated walls, with the tweeters aimed at the center of my couch. I used three of the rectangular versions as my front left, center, right. I used the round, coaxial versions as my rear surrounds and overhead atmos speakers. I also use a pair of JAMO (klipsch clones) subwoofers.
So to sum up, I could (within reason) buy any speaker I cared to use in my system. In fact I've spent THOUSANDS of dollars over many years doing just that (audio is my hobby). I have ZERO regrets after installing these and I have ZERO desire to upgrade after living with these for over a year now. I can't comment on any other in walls speakers. They may all be junk as far as I know. These are excellent for the money! Good luck!

The Harmon.com price changed to match the JBL.com price.

But you were right, they were initially cheaper at Harmon.com

I put these in my house with other Sonos speakers and I am happy with the results for the price. I bought mine the first time around.

I had the opportunity to audition these in a 5.1 set up, not knowing the brand and model prior.
IMO they have a flat sound with no real detail or volume to their sound. So I wasn't surprised to find out they are $70 6.5" pair speakers with no enclosures.
I believe iamzeus pointed out a good point when he said "floor-standing or bookshelf speakers provide better sound than in-wall or in-ceiling".
That enclosure makes a big difference to giving the sound some bass and detail which is important when it comes to sound. IMO it's even more relevant when it comes to object base sound compared to past codecs. Not saying it wasn't before but with object base sound to create that "immersion sound" that detail and body is crucial.
If all your after is better sound than your tv speakers and want to clean aesthetic look than yes these are decent for the price.
It comes down to what you want out of your sound and for each person that differs.
In-walls are not the easiest thing to put in and change if your not happy. If you haven't actually listened to them, I'm not sure these $70 pair of speakers are worth the hassle.


I will point out that I have had several speakers in the past but for the last 10 years they have been the same ones and never looked back. I'm more the type to tell people go after the best sounding speakers to you, even if its piece by piece and don't look back, I didn't/don't.
I am fortunate enough to be able to listen and tinker with at least 8 different variety of Atmos set ups which they have all gone through upgrades. Each time they have, they all have asked me to help set them up and dial them in, so I get to listen and audition many speakers and equipment.
I actually wasn't going to upgrade to object based sound because I didn't think it was worth it and felt like a good 5.1/7.1 was just as good and in some cases better.
Not until I listened to a proper layout with reference speakers did I understand it was well worth it but only under those circumstances.
Sound is subjective so just giving you my opinion from my experience.

Aren't all speakers "loudspeakers"? Like, when you think about it?
