          Great when paired with the matching natural sound receiver. Sound quality is really good for the price. I bought these to install in a customers whole house audio system. We are both very happy with this system. I will be using it more. I have speakers 3 times the price and these sound just as good!

          These speakers were inexpensive and performed ok, but I returned them and opted for the Bose 191's which were a more compatible match for the other Bose speakers in the same room. I didn't realy give the Yamaha speakers a fair test so can neither recommend them or not recommend them.

                I am in Australia and had these sent over, For their price you can't go past the sound quality and affordability. These are in our lounge room in the house with a Yamaha surround sound amplifier and they crank with movies!!

                  This pair of speakers was purchased to fill the rear speaker slot in a home theater/surround system. They are easy to install, look as would be expected mounted in the ceiling, and the sound is as advertised. The grill is paintable but left it white to match ceiling so can't add any thoughts on that aspect. The price was the best I could find (B&H wins again!), and it was delivered free wihtin about 3 days. Very happy with this entire experience.
