OEM Systems designs and manufacturers the ArchiTech SE-791E as well as many different lines of in wall speakers. They’ve been in it as long as anyone. They started in a beach community in California and eventually moved east to escape the fantastic weather to settle in Reno, Nevada. It’s probably that they’re smart businessmen knowing that everything from rent to taxes are less problematic in the desert neighboring state. It pays off when you look at the value you tend to get with their brands.
This speaker is priced in the budget range but when you look further into all the aspects, it gives great value. Polypropylene is by far the best woofer material when you want good sound without the inflated cost of a more esoteric speaker material. The soft domed tweeter they use is also a smart choice, keeping the costs under control. The ArchiTech SE-791E gets high marks for being a sensible design.
