    Anyone have experience with Earthquake IW846 In-Walls?

    I was first attracted to them because they have an enclosure, most of the other in-walls with an enclosure are out of my price range. Not much info, and I can't find a review anywhere. I could get them for significantly lower than the MSRP shown there.

    Here is a link with a pic at the bottom of the page.

    Coupla thoughts ...

    1) Because of in-walls' basic issues with regard to reflections, etc., I'm not sure it's worth going for such high-quality ones, even if you're paying half of what's listed here

    2) Given the bass response that 8" woofer most likely is capable of, you'll need to do some serious reinforcing of the drywall and studs to keep the resonance down.

    I have 6.5" Cambridge Soundworks 2-way in-walls in my bedroom and I can get the drywall to rattle at decent but still relatively low levels.

    Just my two cents.
