Installed these as my rears. The look great with the thin bezel and shallow mounted grill. My wife approves and says the wall looks a lot cleaner. They took me about 15 min to install for each side including clean up.
If you are hesitant or do not think you can install these yourself, do not worry, it was honestly easier than mounting a speaker on a wall mount.
The sound is what I you can expect with NHT. Sublime... Every speaker I have owned from NHT has never disappointed including these!
