Next is the Polk Audio RC80i In-Ceiling Speakers and Subwoofer Combo! This kit is unique because it comes with a powered subwoofer along with the traditional ceiling speakers. The Pyle PDIC81RD Round Wall and Ceiling Home Speakers are an incredible value for 1000 watts of power ( 250 watts per speaker, 1000 watts per 2 pairs of speakers). You need not worry about a loss of sound quality as long as you keep your speakers within 25 feet of your receiver. However, if you have reason to do that, you can still fight against a loss in quality by using a 12-gauge cable. In conclusion, when it comes to the best in-ceiling speakers, there is a lot to consider. However, our top choices are from Bose, Sonos and Klipsch. From value ( price to performance), design, and ease-of-use, we highly recommend one of these brands. Speakers such as the Polk Audio RC80i 2-way Premium In-Ceiling 8” Round Speakers on this list can have rubber seals for this purpose. Such speakers prevent moisture access to the interior components and you can install them without worrying about water damage.

Polk Audio RC80i Review — STOZZ AUDIO

Normally, you’d want your speakers to be as close to each other as possible. However, you can’t just fill your ceiling up with speakers, and even if you can do that, you most likely won’t raise the volumes as they would be too loud for your room. So what do you do? If this is your first time setting up a home theater, you may be scratching your head right about now. You may be wondering what these pieces of equipment do and what makes them different. We have a thorough guide explaining amplifiers and receivers if you want more detail, but the basics are below. Sound is good especially considering the speaker depth, though the streaming services I believe are only standard def, and they are visually pleasing - I wanted a minimalist look and eventually hope for them to have Alexa integration. The best in-ceiling speakers are a great way to provide rich sound in locations that may not have the floor or table space. These speakers also help with keeping the focus of your home on your decor, blending in with your ceilings and walls, and keeping ugly cords and bulky speakers out of sight.Perhaps the most important consideration for buyers is the sound quality and audio performance offered by the speakers. Top notch ceiling speakers will give regular speakers a run for their money.

Polk Audio RC80i In-Ceiling Speakers Editorial Review

Not all in-ceiling speaker installations are in living rooms or home theaters. Polk Audio's RC80i speakers are available for those looking for true whole home placement. A powerful 8-inch woofer rests underneath its grill, along with a swivel-mounted tweeter, enabling the ability to direct sound to the perfect location.

Bose are pretty bottom of the pile for home audio!

The 10 Best In-Ceiling Speakers of 2023 - Audiostance

If your ceiling boards are thinner, then the weight of the speakers are vital. Ones that are too heavy will rip a hole in your roof. Most manufacturers account for this possibility and manufacture models that are lightweight but still produce excellent sound quality like the Klipsch CDT that has 1-inch titanium tweeter. The easy speaker installation saves a ton of time compared to regular conventional speakers and the Controlled Dispersion Technology will direct the mids and highs straight at the listeners to create a listening position sweet spot with no effort at all. In general, the best ceiling speakers are made by dependable names in audio like the Bose Virtually Invisible 791 In-Ceiling Speaker or the Sonos Architectural 6.5-Inch Passive 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers .

The speaker comes with template for cutting the correct size whole in your wall or ceiling. Everyone agrees these are very easy to install. But the grill is a little difficult to remove. User William C Belivins suggest this method instead of the paper clips that Polk Audio suggest. “There are four clamp-screws that need to be accessed from the front. Use these four screws to gently push the grill out from behind. Once you get the grill out a quarter-inch, you can peel it out the rest of the way from the front.” How Does The Polk Audio RC80i Sound?For example, a soft dome tweeter or silk dome tweeter drivers will allow for more precise high notes. As for the low-end bass, make sure the materials are rigid but still have enough give. Our experts use cerametallic spun copper woofer and 1″ titanium tweeter as an example. If you don’t have the tools, hiring someone to complete your home theater is also better. Just to give you an idea, the tools you may need are jab saws, pliers, a measuring tape, a carpenter’s level, and more. These aren’t usually tools we have laying around the house, which is why enlisting an expert is a better and safer choice. Additionally, Bose claims that their “Stereo Everywhere” performance should cover any room with balanced stereo. And, it should have no sound drop-offs.
