Studio 2 55IW is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great speaker, but production/shipping issues Love the speaker, but hate Harman's shipping process. For some reason, speakers take at least three to four weeks to ship. In addition, their customer service center in Asia has no clue about shipping delays.

I am planning an in-wall/in-ceiling 5.1 system. What is the better choice for the LCR units, the Studio 2 8IW, the Studio 2 55IW, or a mix of the two? Can the Studio 2 55IW be mounted horizontally between two 16" studs?

Asked by: TerryT
The STUDIO 2 8IW speaker can handle up to 100 watts while the STUDIO 2 55IW can handle up to 120 watts per channel. This means that any receiver with a power output of 100 watts per channel or less will work fine with these speakers. So as long as your receiver puts out 100 watts per channel or less, you can have a mix of the two added to your existing home theater system. The STUDIO 2 55IW can be mounted horizontally between two 16" studs. It will sound great. The best bet would be a pair of 81W’s for the front left and right, with a 55IW for the center.

Can I join six of these speakers in to one system? And how to join them.

Asked by: Faham
As long as your receiver can accommodate six speakers, you can use six of the STUDIO 2 55IW in to one system. To hook up the STUDIO 2 55IW, you just connect the speaker wires to the appropriate outlets on the A/V receiver. The speaker wires must be connected correctly on both the receiver and speaker. For example, the positive speaker terminal (red) on the receiver must be connected to the positive terminal on the speaker and the negative terminal (black) on the receiver connected to the negative terminal on the speaker.
