Transcript of the Video above:

“Now I want to talk about the JA-C6A 6.5 inch aluminum cone speaker from JA Audio. These come two in a box and we are just going to tear into it and talk about the pieces as we get through. Everything comes with a grill. I don’t know if you realize that on the site. That’s one of the things we always get asked when we get calls.

First thing: It comes with an installation guide, telling you what kind of tools you need and it gives you some basic instructions on how to install the thing. The speakers come in two separate boxes inside. So it’s a really nice package. Inside these are packed in such a way that… let me get to the other side to show you… the grill doesn’t get damaged in shipping. And this is really important. We are shipping a lot of speakers. When you look in here, first thing you’ll notice is this hole in the middle and you can see the grill. And as you take it of, you’ll notice there is another one and then it gets to the frame. That’s to protect the bulge. There is a slight bulge on all these speakers. It’s not a perfectly flat surface on top. So that’s how that comes packed. And then inside you get the speaker all wrapped up in plastic. And we’ll take it apart next and show you all the goodies inside.

Each one of the speakers also comes with a template. You might notice there is a perforated edge around each one. The inside one goes inside of the grill to act as a paint shield. The outside perforation acts as your cutting template. So when you get it, make sure when you cut this out that this slips over the outside rim right here. So that you get a nice install into your wall without any mistakes. Then you won’t have to recut your dry wall. First thing, the grill comes installed. So what you are going to do to get this grill of – this another big question we get – you take the dog ears on the back, turn them sideways, push them through, and what happens is the grill pops of and comes right out.

On the back of the grill there is a cloth type material in there. It covers up the look of the speaker once you get it installed. Otherwise you get this black and white kind of look on your speaker face when it’s in the ceiling. This goes over the top and kind of hides some of that look in there of the contrast. Inside you’ll notice, it does have a logo but it’s not to gaudy when you when you do the grill the right way. No problems with that showing through. It does have a pivoting tweeter. Make sure you are not pivoting these. It’s one of the bad bells and whistles out there. Because as you send high frequencies one direction and low and mid frequencies the other, you get phase problems as you walk through the room. So we recommend to just leave them straight down. It doesn’t really directionalize things that much. You can try it if you want. The nice thing is it’s movable, so you can move it back and forth. Aluminum grill. It’s got a butyl rubber surround which means it is super flexible and very durable. It will last for a long time. This will move very quickly in and out and last for a long time doing it. Aluminum dome tweeter in there. This aluminum set-up makes for a really nice transition from the low’s to the high’s. This is one of our best “bang for the buck” kind of speakers we have. On the back we see the crossover module. You probably don’t know too much about crossovers. There is not too much to focus on on these other then to know that this is a pretty high-end module. It is an 18 dB type crossover. You can look that up on the net what that means. But generally you can tell when you have an 18 dB crossover because you have two coils and a cap for the modules. This has a nice set up with wire connections. Here is how your wires connect in. A lot of people don’t know what these are but you just screw them out and as they screw up they expose a hole inside, you put your wire in there and then just clamp down onto it. That is better than the spring type channels especially when you mount them into the ceiling. You want to leave them there. You want to have a nice solid connection. So that’s another good feature on this guy. Dog ears style mounts. It’s got four of them which is one more than the cheap ones. The cheap ones have three dog ears.

So in summary on some of these features, the JA Audio is a 6.5 inch 2-way in-ceiling speaker, 2-way meaning a tweeter and a woofer. Its over all dimensions are just slightly under 9 inches. Depth is about 2 11/16 inches. So if you had to, you could put it into an indoor wall. It comes with a 19 mm aluminum dome tweeter. And that’s about 3/4 of an inch if you have to compare. 6.5 inch diameter woofer. It’s got the high-end butyl rubber surround. It has a 18 dB crossover on the back. They measured it to go about 50 Hz to 20,000 Hz. It is an 8 ohm speaker. Maximum power input about 100 watts. Sensitivity around 90 dB. It comes with a white aluminum grill. This is also good outdoors if you want. Underneath the lanai, it won’t show as much rust as some of the other things. So, all in all it’s a very solid speaker. Very nice sounding. For the price especially.”

  1. Really appreciate the team at the inwallstore.com. Most recently they helped match new speakers to an existing 20-year-old set of speakers and existing hole in the wall. New ones fit perfectly and sound fantastic. Have purchased multiple sets of speakers from inwallstore.com and all have been fantastic.

  2. Simple to install. Great sound from the speakers in a room that has tile/laminate flooring. Could not have asked for a better product. The family is absolutely loving the 7.1 surround (4 in ceiling w/ 2 front tower speakers and a BOSE center channel). Just like going to the movies without cutting your leg off to pay for it.

  3. Ceiling speakers are for my finished basement. They fit in nicely, have great sound quality and a good value for the money.

  4. Testimonials:

    “The entire process of working with inwallstore.com was very easy and enjoyable. They were very knowledgeable and made the process painless. I didn’t really know anything about what I needed, but they walked me through each step of the way to be sure I had everything i needed. The speakers sound fantastic. Friends and family are amazed with the sound quality every time they come over. I have recommended you guys to several people already and will continue to do so.”
    – Dennis

    “I’m a contractor in Wisconsin that builds about 5 custom homes per year, with audio and home theater installations included in each one. I’ve been purchasing from you for a couple of years now … you guys do a great job on orders and service information. I appreciate the product info you have on the website and have never had an issue with an order or product. Our clients love the systems … they’re easy to install … work great right out of the box.
    Jeff A., Artisan Home Builders

    “Dear Inwall guys,
    I received your follow-up email today. I have to say the JA 6.5″ speakers recommended byBrian are as good as advertised. I installed them in an approximately 16′ x 16′ / 10′ ceiling family room in a square pattern 10′ o.c., and the sound is great! A B.I.C. center channel completes the 5 speakersystem; it picks up dialog and high frequencies very well with our Pioneer receiver.The only question I had prior to install was handled via e-mail. All in all, we put together a greathome theater system for almost half what the “big box” stores would charge with their install included.The sound is so accurate we don’t feel the need to use our sub-woofer. The JA speakers will get yourattention quite well on their own. Again, thanks for the prompt service and quality products.
    – Alan and Pam B.

    “We¦re very happy with the quality. The shipping and tracking worked well. The sound is wonderful. Crisp highs and full lows. I recommend your site for anyone looking for a good value in speakers. Good sound at a reasonable price.”
    – Jay L.

    “My expectations were more than met, this is the 4th or 5th time I have ordered from you, and I keep getting happier with you. The installation was very easy. I love the quick lock tabs for ceiling speakers. Very quick and painless for an installer. The speakers sounded much better than I expected. I am extremely happy with them. We are coming from external wall mount speakers and my wife’s first comment when I fired up a THX movie was, ‘Wow! It sounds like we’re in a theater!’”
    – Kevin C.

    “I just wanted to say that my purchase couldn’t have been smoother. You guys did a great job getting my order to me in a timely manner. The installation was straight forward. The quality of the speakers was phenomenal and the prices low and competitive. Keep up the great work!!”
    – Jody J.

    “The speakers I ordered were shipped promptly and have been installed. Very good service and product and I would recommend Inwall to anyone.”
    – Jeff H.

    “I am very happy with the quality of the speakers and the ease of installation of both the speakers and the volume controller.”
    – Mark M.

    “My installation went great. The house is still under construction so I have only been able to install two set of speakers and they sound great. I will be placing an order for four more sets later this week.”
    – Tom R.

    “The installation was very easy and the speakers sound great.”
    – Mitch D.

    “I just finished installing the speakers and they sound great! The installation was a breeze, I just went up in the attic to make sure there were no obstructions, and proceeded to install them. I should have purchased a few more of them, but I know where to get more.”
    – Bob F.

    “I just fired up the system. Wow, better than expected!!! Install went flawless, very easy for anyone with sight to do. Love it!! Thank you,”
