5 out of 5 eggsFantastic sound and solid quality

Pros: Great speaker for surrounds.
Crisp, clean sound.
Key-hole mount.

Cons: The grill is curved and gives the appearance of a half circle. I prefer the angled look without the grill.

Other Thoughts: I have two of these paired with an Onkyo TX-NR809 receiver, 2x RF-82 II, 1x RC-62 II and a BIC Acoustec PL-200 sub.

I used some hangman bearclaw speaker screw mounts to utilize the key-hole mounts. These speakers are just shy of 15 lbs and the bear claw mounts are rated at 30lbs for drywall and 100 for studs. I had a stud on one side and just drywall on the other. I am also using the 3M command hook picture hangers on the bottom of the back to keep the speaker from jumping up if it is inadvertently knocked or there is an earthquake.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat surround speaker

Pros: Amazing set of surround speakers. Very powerful and crisp, lid as hell too almost as lid as the RF-62II speakers I have for the fronts.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have it currently setup wit a full klipsch system in 5.1 surround. Using 2x RF-62 II, 2x RS-52 and a RC-52 on a onkyo TX-NR809 reiciver.
