The Downside
Considering the balance of price and performance and versatility, there isn’t too much bad to say about the MC-615-70. The bulky rear enclosure is perfect for my theater, where I want to keep sound out of the space above my ceiling, but I can see where many people may run into the issue of not having enough room to fit these speakers in the ceiling. If are sure you want in-ceilings but are unsure of the amount of depth that you have to work with, you might want to poke a small hole in the ceiling and measure. For these speakers, you will need about a foot of space. This may not seem like a lot, but in older homes without a great deal of height between the ceiling and the roof above, especially older post and beam type houses, this could certainly be an issue.

Conclusion
The RBHs have a more distinct, rich flavor than many of the comparably-sized Niles and Sonance speakers that often get specced into medium-level theaters. They were a perfect match for my RBH front-end system, but they have also worked just as well with several different front-end speaker systems I have had in my room, including those from Paradigm and Energy. The speakers have a quality look and feel, from the smooth clean appearance of the aluminum woofer to the terminals on the back. The low-profile grilles can easily be painted to match any decor and blend into the ceiling like chameleons. They may have been created for commercial applications, with their heavy-duty rear enclosures, but you won’t feel like you are hearing your music through the PA system at a grocery store. These are quality speakers at a reasonable price that can be easily heard but hardly seen.
