Smooth range and clear sound.
During intense DVD video (audio) action, these speakers shake the speaker grills out of the speaker frame.
My wife said I could not use free standing speakers for our new home. She did not want to vacuum around them or their cables. I thought that was the end of HI-FI music and great theater sound. My search for a solution brought me to the AB855's. I've had these speakers installed for a year now. I'm using them for my front and for my surround speakers. WOW! These more than fill my 16' x 25' room. Very clear and steady highs and midrange, Suprisingly good lows although the wife did allow a powered sub woofer to complement the fantastic 855's. I'm HAPPY

-Crystal clear highs, deep powerful lows (deep for a 6.5" woofer) -Seemless installation makes them nearly invisible. You can paint them to match the wall in which they are installed so you will hardly be able to tell they are there.
None that I can think of.
Outstanding!! These speakers sound better than the standalone Polk Monitor speakers that I had before them. The fact that these speakers are installed in the wall, and that the wall essentially becomes one huge speaker enclosure, helps to give these speakers tremendous sound with awesome bass and crystal clarity.
