Examining the Micca M-8C

The standout feature is the sound quality that these speakers deliver. It’s rich, crisp, and detailed, making this product just as good for music or for watching films. The sound is down to the high-grade drivers that are inside each speaker unit. There is an 8” woofer and a 1” tweeter. The woofer is made from mica poly and offers a high-excursion output.

Klipsch R-5502-W II


+ Low Price
+ High-Quality Drivers
+ Max Power Output of 100W Each
+ Ideal for Music or Movies
+ Crisp Sound

+ 3-way class L/C/R set-up.
+ Next level quality.
+ Crisp audio.
+ Straightforward set-up.
+ Magnetic grilles.


These speakers are cheap but deliver the quality you’d expect from a premium product. We were particularly impressed by the exceptional sound quality that the two-way system delivers.

In terms of quality this 3-way L/C/R is pretty hard to beat, they really sound natural and the highs are audibly pristine.  They mount extremely close to the wall, with next to no profile and the magnetic grilles couldn't be simpler to attach.
