Found it surprising that the connection recommendations were nothing more than bare wire sliding into a hole. For $400 I expected much more. C'mon man!
Performance for the size and price cannot be beat. Love the speaker!
For anyone looking to buy and install this (very easy install), keep in mind that the mount plate is NOT centered with speaker. If you use the included template, you'll be ok. However, if you use the mount plate to level and mark your holes, you will need to account for the offset (otherwise your speakers will be off-center to the right). This is not to say the instructions aren't clear, it was definitely clearly marked on the template. This was obviously user error in assuming the mount plate would be centered with the speaker...and you know what happens when you ASS U ME.
I bought this to pair up with the T301 R/L speakers and I purchased the set in white. They look awesome and my only complaint visually on the center channel is that the dead space on the white part of the speaker is not symmetric.... which makes it look like just a R/L speaker tilted 90 degress (which indeed is what it is). That is a minor gripe, otherwise I'm fully satisfied.
The speakers are very low profile which at first would make you suspicious of the sound quality, but once set up I was amazed at the sound. I'm certainly not an audiophile but the center channel paired up with the T301 R/L speakers replaced a very large BIC America sound bar (which was also nice but was too large for my new layout). This is set up in a great room that is over 3000 ft^3 so If wasn't expecting them to fill the room but I was presently surprised, these leave me wanting for nothing, I highly recommend them.
It is a great looking / sound speaker but 3 minor issues:
1- I wish the side white front panel were on both sides to give it a more balance look. The right side could be removable for those who like the single side look.
2- During installation I had only one option to rout the wire behind the speaker which I needed to rout from the other side.
3- The white box looking side panel in front of the speaker (I think) has the main electrical component and for some reason it collect dust. I think it creates magnetic filed that's how it attracts dust but it can easily been whipped away. I'm talking about maybe once a month depending on where you live.
