I've been looking on getting a pair 6.5" in-ceiling speakers using it ONLY for Home Theater (5.1) and here is the 2 that I've narrowed down. Which brand is better made/sound for home ceiling speakers.

1/ Jamo 6.521K4 = $314 /pr. no tax
Power: 60- 120w

2/ Boston Acoustic: DSi455 = $300/ pr + tax.
Recommended Amplifier Power
10-100 watts
Frequency Response (3dB)

FYI: I'm getting a Receiver: HK AVR-435

Jamo and Boston Acoustics are both good brands that have been around for a long time, although the latter may be better known. You could do well with either speaker. My one concern is that Jamo does not list frequency response specs for their speaker, although I don't doubt that it is a good performer. If I were making the choice based on a blind purchase, I would go with the speaker that has the wider frequency response range, all else being equal. Just my $.02.

THanks Glen B.
Anthusias with JBL in-wall, in-ceiling speakers please holla, especially the JBL HTI6C.
I'm turning toward to the Jamo now, but before I'm getting it sometimes this week, would it be a change of heart?
The contender is the in-ceiling JBL HTI 6C. $157 at
Maximum Recommended Amplifier Power 100 Watts
Sensitivity (2.83V @ 1m) 88dB
Frequency Response (–10dB) 40Hz – 20kHz
Crossover Frequency 2kHz

Low-Frequency Driver 6-1/2" Polymer-coated aluminum cone with rubber surround

Ok, this just can't be true. There must be someone in here with JBL in ceiling speakers. I want some feed back people.

Ok,I had no feed back on Jamo, no feed back on JBL so that I assum both are not very popular to those in here (well, in ceiling speakers are not popular everywhere) Anyways, One dealer offered me $350 for a pair of 8" Paradigm SA 15R. Good buy? Any one have them for surround? !!! HELP!!!

I thought Jamo was another one of those white van speakers? QQcmdZViewItem
