The simple fact of the matter is that you really can't go wrong with JENSEN in-ceiling speakers for your home theater system, especially if you're trying to recreate that cinematic experience in the comfort of your own home as closely as possible. Choosing the correct rear in-ceiling speakers for your environment however, does bring with it a variety of different benefits.
The Benefits of Rear In-Ceiling Speakers
Perhaps the biggest benefit of rear in-ceiling speakers is one of convenience. While you may have the space in your current home theater room or area for floor standing speakers and a separate subwoofer speakers up front, the same isn't necessarily true for the rear. To get the most accurate crystal clear sound field possible from high quality Blu-ray home video discs and HDTV content, your rear speakers really do need to be behind you - not located right next to the chair or the couch that you plan on sitting on. This subtle difference is hugely important for accuracy, which ultimately adds to the immersive movie quality that you're trying to achieve in the first place.
Rear in-ceiling speakers won't take up any floor space at all, opening you to a wide range of additional options that you wouldn't have with a set of rear floor standing speakers. You also won't have to worry about how you're planning to mount smaller speakers for the rear or even about things like running (and ultimately hiding) speaker wires. Installation is a breeze with JENSEN in-ceiling speakers as all of your speaker wires will run up through the wall and across the ceiling, so you'll get the sleek presentation you've always wanted.
Picking the Right In-Ceiling Speakers
As a rule of thumb, it's always a good idea to try to buy as many pieces of equipment for your home theater speakers from the same provider as possible. If you already have JENSEN floor standing speakers and a subwoofer at the front of your setup, for example, it would be wise to invest in JENSEN in-ceiling speakers to complete your sound field from the rear. These components are typically designed to work together and complement one another, so making sure that you stay within the same family of products is always a good thing. The JENSEN in-ceiling speakers range is sleek and discreet, while being fully paintable and humidity and dust proof. Not to mention the awesome 5-year warranty.
Next, you'll want to match up the power of your rear in-ceiling speakers with the current technical specifications of your home theater system or your surround sound needs. If you already have a receiver, make sure that the speakers you're buying aren't more powerful than what the receiver can actually support. Doing so won't necessarily result in rear speakers that don't work, but you will be paying a bit of extra money for additional wattage that you won't be able to take full advantage of. JENSEN in-ceiling speakers start with the EHT-2, suitable for indoor or alfresco situations, and containing a powerful 6.5” subwoofer. The EHT-3 and EHT-6 improve on the features of the former until you reach the EHT-8 in-ceiling speakers, needing a mere 95mm of ceiling cavity these in-ceiling speakers pack a monstrous punch with a monster 8” woofer in built for those ear-deafening action scenes! Follow these tips to ensure you get the most out of your JENSEN in-ceiling speakers.
