The unique design of the MK660 LCR speaker positions the 6.5” woofer at a 15° degree angle, which creates a more realistic sound stage when front surrounds are installed closer to the wall or right above the monitor. It is by natural the best setup for Dolby Atmos firing down solution. Not only is this speaker affordable, it offers customers with smaller or odd shaped rooms more placement flexibility to optimize their home theater experience. The critical high and mid-range frequencies are pointed toward the listener, not the floor, so when your video tracks left to right, the sound tracks right along with the video. You can even use them for rear and side surrounds in a 5.1 or 7.1 system.
Why Use An Angled In-ceiling Speaker?
The angled speaker can be a real problem solver because not every space is ideal for custom home theater sound applications. The angled in-ceiling speaker features a 15 degree angle for the mid bass driver plus a pivoting tweeter for placement flexibility. This speaker can be part of three piece set to handle the front stage of the surround system when both on-wall and in-wall are not a favorable option. The angled design allows the ideal placement in the ceiling closer to the wall just above the monitor. This creates a more realistic sound image when compared to normal in-ceiling speakers that are mounted closer to or directly above the viewing area. Standard in-ceiling speakers are generally placed at least three feet from the wall to avoid reflective sound. The angle speaker can be placed within a foot of the wall
What Is Butyl Rubber Surround?
With almost double the shelf life of foam, butyl rubber has been the choice of speaker designers looking to optimize the sound based upon materials that go together. The Surround is just one of the integral parts of the speaker's motor structure. Butyl Rubber gives the speaker more excursion capability featuring a deeper bass with a wider frequency response, and its shelf life is closer to 25 years compared to the foam at 12 to 15 years.
Should I Purchase Special Cable for In-ceiling speakers?
Wiring is not included with in-ceiling speakers so you will have to purchase some. While wiring requirements will depend on your local building codes, OSD Audio offers CL3/FT4 cable that is UL (fire) rated for all residential and most commercial in-wall and in-ceiling applications. (The exception is you cannot run this cable in heating or cooling ducts in commercial applications.) This cable includes a heavy-duty outer jacket approved for in-wall/in-ceiling installation. The high quality plastic jacket is also very flexible so it's easy to run the wires inside the wall.
For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.
Introducing LCR Ceiling Series speakers. With this revolutionary design you can get imaging and staging that would be lost with regular, down-firing ceiling speakers. We accomplish this because our woofers are set at a 15 degree angle. The critical high and mid-range frequencies are then pointed toward the listener, not the floor. So, when your video tracks left to right, the sound tracks right along with the video. You can even use them for rear and side surrounds in a 5.1 or 7.1 system.
