Arena 6IC is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 7.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Arena 61C: Great speaker for Home Theater System! I purchased two Arena 61C speakers to be used as ceiling speakers for my home theater system upgrade. Great packaging to prevent shipping damage, detailed installation instructions, and nice mounting hardware for retrofit installations. I also contacted customer support for speaker location/orientation recommendations and received all necessary information promptly by email :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speakers! I bought 4 of these speakers and I am so happy with them. They have good, strong bass and great treble as well. The magnetic grill is very easy to remove and even easier to put back on. Overall these are a great buy and I would definitely recommend them.

Running about 30' of wire to the speaker. What size speaker wire should I run/ Is 16-2 enough?

Asked by: m1473
That should be good enough as long as the wires are capable of running through the walls.

I would like to get these installed in my bathroom. Will it withstand the steam and moisture?

Asked by: shashank350
This is not an all-weather speaker so we do not recommend using it in a sauna. However, in a typical bathroom, it will work fine. The moisture and steam may slightly shorten the life of the product, but not in a drastic way.

I want to use these for my rear speakers in a 7.1 setup. I don't have a rear wall, close by, as this is going to be a great room. Is there anyway to point these more towards the seating area so they aren't shooting straight down on the floor?

Asked by: LoopBack
In-ceiling speakers cannot be used in the wall due to speaker dimensions. A wall is not deep enough to accommodate the depth of an in-ceiling speaker. For quality listening, we recommend using architectural speakers according to their intended purpose.

Planning a 7.1 system. I already have 2 pairs of SP8II for the walls. I need a pair for the cieling. Will these match up well even thought they are only 6" and not 8" and 80 w instead of the 100 w the others handle?
