Pyle Home PIC8E 300 Watt High-End 8-Inch Two-Way In-Ceiling Speaker

Polk Audio 265RT (Ea) 3-way In-wall Speaker


+ Space saving in-ceiling set.
+ High quality build including stain resistant white covers.
+ Integrated mounting hardware.
+ Competitively priced.

+ High performance handling.
+ 3-way class pair.
+ Easy installation.
+ Reflective Room tech.
+ Power port bass venting.
+ Well built.


They feature decent sized woofers and a fab crossover, which allows for EQ tailoring to suit the individual.  They are a great way to go in a larger home system set-up given that they have no footprint, providing you are happy to install within your ceiling.

We impressed before with products from the Polk Vanishing series, they are very well designed put together they provide a wide frequency response, and even sound pretty good as a stand alone pair.
