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 4.4286 out of 5 by 35.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent SpeakersI bought a set of Dayton speakers a number of years ago to put in the wall of a sun room we were building. My expectations were pretty low, but the speakers sound fantastic. This time I went with a less expensive set for a TV in my game room. Again, no disappointment! These are really nice sounding speakers and pretty easy install (as long as you notice that there is a top and bottom to the mounting bracket. Highly recommended.

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.

Dayton Audio CS620W 6-1/2" 2-Way In-Wall Speaker Pair

I want to use these for a 5.1 set up, wondering how well one would work acting as the center channel.  Or is there any other suggestions ?  I am concerned on the appearance of the frames to be similar. 

Asked by: Mark Mark
One of these would work well as the center channel as long as it is mounted vertically.

Can you paint the front edges of the speaker (not the grill)? If so, how might I do this to not damage the speaker?

Asked by: brianjlowry
Yes the edges can be painted to match any decor. You will have to tape and mask off the rest of the speaker in order to not damage anything. We recommend spraying them to apply the paint.

replace a blown tweeter?

I blew the tweeters on these, and was wondering if there is a tweeter I could buy to replace instead of replacing the whole speaker.

Unfortunately we do not offer a replacement tweeter for our in wall speakers.

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
