HSU HIW-1 with Klipsch RP250C?

Will the HSU HIW-1 Horn In-Wall Speaker (horn tweeters) pair well with my existing klipsch reference premier 250C? Would be using the HSU in walls as Front L/R and Surround L/R.

If it helps, I am also running dual PB-2000's and will be purchasing 4 additional in ceiling speakers for atmos.

Believe it or not, despite them both being Horn speakers, they couldn’t be farther from each other regarding sound profile. The horns that HSU use are very soft, with a natural treble roll off, causing the speaker to actually sound warm vs Klipsch’s slight brightness.

Right just because it's a horn design does not mean they will sound the same. The same can be said for soft dome tweeter speakers, ribbon based speakers, etc. For surrounds they may be okay but I would check with Klipsch on the best in-wall speakers to pair with the 250-C.

If the in wall speakers are voiced the same as the other hsu speakers, then they are pretty laid back. I have 3 of the hc1's up front and hb1's in the rear. Just got a chane a2.4 center to try something different, and the chane is much more forward in the treble than the hsu's. And the chane's are considered neutral. But coming from the hsu's, the chane definitely seems bright. But that could work out ok for you. Having the brighter center for movies, and more laid back speakers for music.
