1 Answer
Hi Kevin: Not this exact one, but we are looking at both a Dual 5.25" and Dual 6.5" version of the Trim-less designed in-wall.Most likely sometime during First Quarter 2018. There a few other options but you need to contact our internal customer service people and ask about other options not listed on-line. TL/4614

1 Answer
Hi Douglas: This speaker is being discontinued with a two new speakers in its place one being a direct replacement; Dual 5.25" MTM (Mid-Tweeter-Mid) Trimless LCR and the second speaker a step up Dual 6.5" MTM Trim-less LCR speaker. They are due in this month (May). Stay tuned, we will update the page to announce the new replacements.

from Miami asked:
May 12, 2015
I am considering buying this as my center channel, but my question is what speakers to purchase for L & R channel? Two others like this or just regular in-wall speakers. I have a Pioneer SC-81 receiver 7.2 and a 20'X15' family room (open concept floor plan). Main uses include home theater, some light gaming, and music to entertain guests inside and outside of the house.
1 Answer
Hi James, I believe this model is discontinued and replaced by our MK-IW550LCR. You would best match this lcr with the MKW-850 or MKW-650 as your front L/R.

Can this product be installed in the ceiling, or would this affect the sound or is it a solely a wall mount? If it cannot, could you offer an alternative for a center channel comparable to this?
1 Answer
Hi Scott, The design of this speaker works best with in-wall installations, due to the separated tweeter and woofers. Typically a ceiling speaker is going to be coaxial and have a round design for better stereo imaging. If you are limited to the ceiling, I would suggest going with the MK670 as your center channel and even as your front left and right if you haven't purchased those already. These MK670 will give you top notch sound and the angle of the speaker will project the audio directly at your listening area. -BM 2293

I am building a house and need to install 7.1 speakers. The three front speakers should be mounted on the wall but the 4 back speakers are in the ceiling. What speakers should I order? I like the specs of the IW550LCR - could I find the rest of the speakers to go with it?
1 Answer
Hi Dave, The Kevlar models are our best selling speakers and a great choice for your home theater. If you want to go with in-ceiling, our ICE650 or ICE670 are a good match. The in-wall version is the IW690. We also have an 8" available. What are the dimensions of your room? CL/MA 1857

Is this model magnetically shielded?
1 Answer
HI Joe, This in-wall center channel is magnetically shielded. Magnetic shielding was more of a concern when mounting these near a CRT screen where the magnetic would have issue with the screen. That is no longer an issue with flat screen monitors. But either way you are covered with this speaker. TL/MA - 1518

I'm putting in a surround sound system with this speaker, what other speakers would complement this to make my theater complete
1 Answer
Hi Ruben, The answer depends on whether you are doing an in-ceiling or in-wall speaker set. We have 6.5" and 8" size options as well. The ceiling would be ICE650 and the in-wall would be IW690 for 6.5" speakers, both of which are great for rooms approximately 20 x 20. Here is a link to our bundles. We may have exactly what you are looking for. CL/MA 1312

Is there a paintable grill cover included?
1 Answer
Hi Nim: There is a paint shield that is included with all of our in-ceiling and in-wall speakers. It also doubles as the cut out template. There maybe a cloth on the inside the grill you will want to remove before painting. The paint shield fits over the baffle where the grill would normally be so you can paint the outer frame. We usually recommend spray paint for the grill. TL

What is the construction bracket that you use for this model? It looks like the model listed doesn't bring anything back in the search window.
1 Answer
We do not have a bracket for this speaker; instead it comes equipped with dog-eared brackets, so it’s retro fit. with no addtional bracket needed. My suggestion would be to go ahead with the drywall and make the cut-out afterwards. CL
