Dayton Audio CS620W 6-1/2" 2-Way In-Wall Speaker Pair
Dayton Audio CS620W 6-1/2" 2-Way In-Wall Speaker Pair is rated 4.4118 out of 5 by 34.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent surroundsI was rebuilding my HT and decided that to save space I would do in walls for surrounds. The price on these was great and the reviews were not wrong. I wasn’t expecting a lot from an in wall speaker but these sound great! Easy to mount and look good. I watch movies loud and they have never distorted in any way. If I ever add channels to my HT setup I'll buy more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent Set Of Cheap In-WallsInstallation was easy enough. Getting the wire there is the hard part. If you can read a tape measure and a level, these will be a walk in the park to install. The baffles warp easily so watch the screw torque. Overtightening makes the grille fit tight, or not at all.Sound quality out of the box is annoyingly shrill.STOP READING HERE. DO NOT TRY THIS AT HOME! Padding the tweeters by 6dB makes them sound much better. Unfortunately, making them sound better voids the warranty, but at the price, who cares? Just insert a 10 Watt, 8 ohm resistor between the input side of the tweeter's filter and the amplifier connection.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dayton CS620W In-Wall SpeakersI purchased these to install in a bathroom. They are driven from a AudioSource AMP100 amplifier which autodetects a signal from an Apple Aitport Express. The speakers sound ok although they are a little 'bright' for my taste. The same amp is also driving some Wharfdale bookself speakers in the bedroom that sounds much better. As mentioned in other reviews, the install method isn't very good. I chose to make a much smaller hole and uses double sided tape to secure the metal mount to the inside of the drywall while I screwed on the front panel. The grill is VERY HARD to remove once installed and will likely damage my paint job when I do. So, for the money, a nice set of speakers, but you have to ignore the installation instructions for a better fit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good overall, but poor mounting instructionMounting instructions inside the package do not match content! Pictures on how to mount on website are more useful, but still inadequate.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great SpeakersGot 2 pairs of thse for the home theatre. We moved and the small stellite speakers that came with the Yamaha HTIB did not go with the decor...I got two pairs of these, one on either side of the 50" plasma as the front/main speakers, and another for in the ceiling over the couch for the rears. I kept the original sub and re programmed the receiver to 4.1 from 6.1 and it sounds great. I could have gotten 3 pairs of these but 6 would have been overkill in the space.The speakers are very well made, ie no cheap plactic parts, everything is metal and sturdy. Easy to install using the template provided in the box. Two tips: first, plan to stuff some insulation in the walls. I used unfaced attic roll on above and below the speaker in the stud bay, not right up against it but just enough to block the stud bay from being a resonator. Otherwise you will hear these all over teh house. Next, sweetie wanted the grills painted to match the walls, and iut was very difficult to paint with thick latex paint. I thinned the paint and used compressed air to keep the grill holes blown out. Will definitely buy again at this price, great value for the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for the moneyI bought these as a low cost option for a "workout" room in our basement. TIP - If you have a hard time re-installing the screens, try loosening the six mounting bracket screws a couple of turns. Over-tightening the screws (as I did initially) will warp the speaker frame just enough to prevent the screen from being seated properly.Overall, I am very satisfied with their performance and look.

I am putting these in my ceiling. Can they be in direct contact with insulation?

Asked by: LeeW
yes the insulation should be no problem later unless the cone can touch the fiberglass and get into the backside of the woofer frame

Preference

I know you don't like to state a sound preference, especially among competing brands, however... I will be installing a pair of ceiling-mounted speakers for myself, not a customer. I need your advice regarding overall sound quality because once they're installed it's a done deal. My two options are QM650C or CS620W. In my experience speakers with separated tweeters vs coaxially mounted ones are generally better sounding, especially regarding bass response. These however are going in the ceiling where the round design would be much less noticeable. The conundrum is sound quality vs aesthetics. Please, please give me your thoughts on these two products. I have no other point of reference.
Asked by: RollandRahr
In that situation I always go for sound quality.Although the QM650C co-axial speaker is designed in such a way as to remove most of the limitations of the standard coaxial speaker types, it has a bit less power handling and is less efficient than the CS620W. The CS650W also has a better crossover circuit. All these things point toward the CS650W as being the better choice in my opinion, and is the one I would choose were I doing this install.

Can you paint the grills (covers)?

Asked by: johnelloco
Since they remove, the answer is yes.

Can these speakers be quick mounted?

Asked by: megaPhone
Not sure what you mean by 'quick mounted'. You have to make a hole in your wall which isn't a quick process! I don't actually like the way they suggest to mount them so I made up my own way using a smaller hole in the wall than they suggest. You can see from the info on the PartsExpress website that they suggest a big hole where only the very top and bottom of the speaker are held in place. That leads to flexing if you do up the middle screw too tight #as mentioned in another review#. My way has the speaker supported all the way round. No flexing and less resonance.

Enclosure Volume

Is there an optimal volume of space that should be behind these speakers? In other words, should the volume of space iint he wall be thought of as a "sealed cabinet" of a specific volume for best bass perfomance?
Asked by: jonheal
These (and other) in-wall speakers will typically use a woofer with a high "Qts" parameter, which means they're suited to large enclosures, or no enclosure at all. To my knowledge, there really isn't an "optimum" sized cavity for them, however, one could test fairly easily with a couple pieces of scrap wood or foam insulation board or some such.
