Features & Specifications

The ACE500 5.25-inch trimless thin bezel ceiling speaker from OSD Audio is ideal for background music in an office space, commercial environment or public building. It has a clean, contemporary appearance that seamlessly blends into any de´cor, and the size even matches nicely with recessed lights. These trimless recessed speakers have a 5.25-inch woofer and .75-inch tweeter, and can handle 75 watts of power. These ceiling speakers are made from durable ABS plastic material. Flush-mount speakers use the ceiling as its speaker enclosure, and the absence of trim on this model makes it completely unobtrusive within the architectural design of the room. If you're looking for a 5-inch in-ceiling speaker, the ACE500 may be the perfect choice.

Outdoor Speaker Depot is a leading manufacturer and supplier of innovative and high-end audio equipment and home entertainment systems. We're here to assist you in selecting the perfect products to fit your sound system needs.

Why Go Trimless?
It's really a matter of aesthetic preference. Our Architectural Ceiling Element (ACE) Trimless speakers do not include the the 3/4-inch trim you typically see around in-wall and ceiling speakers. This gives the speakers a much stealthier appearance. Adds less visual impact on your architectural audio installation.

How does this speaker mount in the ceiling?
Customers often ask us if they need special installation mounting brackets on their OSD ceiling speakers. The answer is no and here’s why. All our in-ceiling speakers feature a dog leg (L-shaped) mounting system that is part of the frame. Before you install the speakers, remove the grille and you’ll see several the mounting screws near the front frame. These screws need to be loosened to activate the dog leg clamps. Use a screwdriver to loosen (turn to the left) these screws and the clamp will come loose. When the speaker is in position in the ceiling, tighten (turn to the right) the screw and the speaker will be secured to the ceiling.

Cable Notes
You'll need to purchase in-wall cable before you start your install. Wiring requirements vary with local building codes, but we recommend using our CL3/FT4 cable that is UL (fire) rated for all residential and most commercial in-wall and in-ceiling 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.

Gauging the Length and Size of Wire
For runs up to 100 feet for background music, 16-gauge will do just fine. If the run is approaching or exceeding 100 feet, step up to a 14-gauge wire.

Testing the Sound Quality of In-ceiling Speakers
Many customers like to test the sound quality of their new OSD Audio in-ceiling speakers before they install them. Keep in mind, however, that these flush-mount speakers are designed to be used in the wall or ceiling. Uninstalled in-wall/in-ceiling speakers will sound weak and tinny because without the proper enclosure (in this case your house wall) the speaker can’t produce the sound pressure level it needs. If you want to try them out, we recommend mounting the in-ceiling speakers into a box of about 3 cubic ft. or larger; or simply mount them in the ceiling and then listen. This will give you an accurate measure of the sound quality.


For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Phil Blythe from richmond, va on May 4, 2012
Were the installation brackets included? Thanks
By Customer Service - Q&A on May 5, 2012

Answer:
Hi Phil:

All our in-ceiling speakers feature a dog leg mounting system that is part of the frame. You do not need a new constructing mounting kit to install these. Remove the grill and you will see the three mounting screws that need activate the dog ears. Look closely at the image on the product page of the back of the speaker. The mounting ears are at 3:00, 7:00 and 11:00 o'clock when you are looking straight at it.

I usually have trepidation about purchasing over the internet. This merchant, however, provided an excellent service, e-mail confirmation, and the delivery was on the date promised. The product, in ceiling speakers, performed as promised. I will visit this company again for additional purchases.
