I own four of the 8" Elite Series speakers and I can say they are worth well more than the price offered here. I think I paid around $400 a pair when I did my install.
I'm not saying the monoprice speakers are bad because they aren't but to say they are on the same level means you likely don't hear the difference between lossless and 320k MP3 files.
These speakers are for the audiophile who can't really afford the massive tens of thousands of dollar entertainment system.
I will also say for my installation I went with speakercraft for my ceiling setup because they have better adjustment than the pioneer but they cost twice as much too.
Here is a picture of the set of Pioneer speakers I own. At the time no center channel was available so I bridged two full range speakers instead and it sounds amazing..especially when finished off by a pair of subwoofers one. For high bass (10" 150watt pioneer) and one for the low bass to add a punch to explosions (12" 350watt Klipsch).
.rev - woot is where the crap is.
