    Comments about Klipsch 8" Two-Way Pivoting In-Ceiling Loudspeaker:

    I am an A/V enthusiast with way too much money poured into my systems, so I was taking a chance (in my terms) of trying these Klipsch out over the top of the line Sonance. And I am glad that I did. I mounted these in my ceiling in no time in a few rooms for discreet sound, using 2-speaker stereo in my Dining Room and Study as well as in a 5-channel setup in my family room. Bass is a little on the weak side, but considering they are in-ceiling one can't expect much more. Performance is excellent and the highs and mids are very clear. I like how I can adjsut and angle the speaker and tweeter to target the listerner position which adds value. I honestly can't see paying more for anything better, yes there may be a better produce out there for in-celing, but it would be such a small and almost unnoticeable improvement I will buy these over and over again with the bargain that Abt offers on them.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Absolutely outstanding!

        These things are great, the 8" is a must! Do not skimp for the 6", you will wish you bought the 8", my uncle exchanged his after install. The sound is truly amazing. The install is easy, I cannot even use a tape measure and did it. The Price [$] is steep, but... I haggled these babies for a price you would not believe! Get online, then bring them your offer!
