dumb question, my home came with ceiling speakers but they are not that great, I meassured the speakers including the sides and they are about 8". You measure them the same way as car speakers, cone plus side, right?

Btw it seems like these go on sale pretty often
8 inch side to side probably means the old one are 5.5/6.5 inch.

However, the 8.5cs may not be much better than your existing ones. I replaced my 5.5 inch speakes with 8.5cs. The bass is improved a little but the mid and high have no difference. I guess the pricing actually already reveals it. On the other hand, celing speakers are all very similarly constructed with the shadow depth. So don't expect more expensive ones to produce drastically better sound. I also have a pair of Polk V80, which are better than 8.5cs, but not by a lot -- certainly not worth $100 more a piece.

oh man, thanks for the answer, I was about to order the 8". Now I'm just going to wait it out, they are not that bad

I assume you have a receiver? If so, its like any other speaker you've connected to it. You just need to run the wires up through the wall/ceiling. Not hard as long as you have easy access to your attic. Be sure to buy speaker cable thats certified to run through walls!
Running speaker wires through ceilings and behind walls is not a trivial task even if you have an open attic. In my case, I'd like to mount these in a game room on the lower floor where the ceiling is sandwiched between two floors. No access.

Would these be good as an in wall stereo LR set up? One on each side of my wall mounted TV? I have an older pair of Polk 5JRs that sound pretty good, but I'm always interested in reducing my physical footprint.

For those of you with no attic and no way to hide wires for these, here's what I did. I bought a small hand circular saw and put a small(6 inch??) blade on it. I do have crown moulding so I hid most of the wire run behind that but there was no way to hide them from the wall to the speakers on the ceiling. I adjusted the depth of the blade to about 1/4" and cut a groove in the ceiling. I then tucked the wires into those cuts, spackled over the wires and painted it. Turned out great!
That's fantastic

Is this how the pros do it?
Can't believe that I never fathomed of this technique prior!
Can this technique also apply to 16-18ga 12v wire for LEDs? Or would that be against code, or unsafe?

A friend of mine suggested trying this and it worked! I had flat ribbon speaker wire but I didn't really like that you could still kind of see it. I'm sure it would work for 12v wire with no problem. I used 14 gauge wire with my speakers.

Mounted these in my drop ceiling for atmos sound, they do have tweeters you can aim, the grills come off and are paintable as well. All in all I'm happy with them, well worth the 69$

LOL no, pros will do a proper wire run behind the drywall and parallel to studs, or through them
with a long flexible drill. You end up cutting slots every few feet or so to drill and fish wire through behind the dry wall. It leaves less to patch but requires so more tools (fish tape and the long drill)

I think the Monoprice are better ones esp for the feature - "Pivoting tweeters allow you to point the acoustics to the prime listening position for a more accurate and immersive sonic experience"

I have a set of these 6" in ceilings. They sound fine. I removed them only to install a set of JBL's that matched the rest of my all JBL in-wall home theater. Just gonna say that my reasoning for going to all 6" woofers in my in walls vs 8" is basically that you rarely see 8" mid/woofers paired to 1" tweeters. The reason being is that large mid/woofers get "beamy" (directional) at higher frequencies and they don't crossover as well to 1" tweeters vs the typical 5"-6" mid/woofers in most 2 way speakers.

If by any chance someone in Massachusetts is looking to buy these, I bought 2 sets of the 6.5" (4 total) in prior deal but never used them (unopened). Would be willing to make a deal.
If you are still looking to get rid of the four 6.5" speakers, I'm located in RI and am interested.
