Features & Specifications

In our 6.5-inch category, the ICE610 Contractor speaker with polypropylene cone woofer is a cost effective way for the builder or homeowner to add speakers to every room with a fraction of the cost. In spite of the low price, however, customers continually review the ICE610s as exceptionally solid sounding speakers. Contributing to this is the larger 6.5-inch polypropylene cone woofer with butyl rubber surround and ½” PEI dome tweeter. Surrounding the speaker cone, Butyl Rubber Surround is a tough, moisture-resistant rubber that helps reflect energy and provides excellent sound damping characteristics. The ICE610s are an excellent choice for price-conscious customers who appreciate a good value

Cable and Gauge Considerations
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.

The thickness of your speaker wire depends on how far the wire has to travel from the receiver to the speaker. The lower the American Wire Gauge (AWG) number, the thicker the wire. Significant power losses can occur over the long runs, resulting in lower performance. While this probably won’t be a problem in most single-room setups, it could be an issue for multi-room systems. Consider these guidelines for wire gauge:
Less than 80 feet: 16
80 to 200 feet: 14
More than 200 feet: 12


For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Chris Carothers from Confluence PA on March 11, 2012
We just received our ICE610 ceiling speakers and volume slides. The house was pre-wired during remodeling. Can you recommend an amplifier that would be appropriate to use with these speakers? We have 4 separate zones. We're installing this system ourselves and have limited knowledge about stereo equipment. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

By Customer Service - Q&A on March 11, 2012

Answer:
Hi Chris:

Thank you for purchaing ICE610 in-ceiling speakers. We would recommend a combination of the AMP120 and ISS4 Speaker Selector. It sounds like you purchased Impedance matching slider style Volume Controls hopefully from us. They need to be impedance matching to make this work properly. You will need to run CL3 Rated speaker wire from the amplifier (Speaker Output A) to the Input on the ISS4 speaker selector. Then connect speaker wire from each zone output to the volume control input located in each room. We would recommend using our 4 conductor 16 gauge CL3 rated cable to handle this connection to the speaker selector then to the volume controls. From the volume controls you will need to run 2 conductor 16 gauge CL3 rated cable to each speaker (right and left in each zone). Each Volume controls has a impedance matching switch which needs to be set to 4X. Make sure the protection button on the ISS4 Speaker Selector is in the off position (disabled). The Volume Controls do all the protection the amplifier needs. Please feel free to contact us if you need further assitance.

How can i assess the quality of the speaker without hearing it?
By Customer Service - Q&A on March 18, 2012

Answer:
Hi Samuel:

Good question... we have a thrirty day satisfaction gurantee, you can return them within thirty days of your purchasing them from us if you are not satisfied. But really these speakers should sell at twice the price if you were to looking for in-Ceiling speakers at retail. They do feature a Poly woofer with Butyl rubber surrounds. Note compare these to our ICE640 speakers at $69.95 a pair (double the price). Look at the images for both. The ICE610 does not have a true crossover network (just a small capacitor that protects the tweeter while the mid bass driver rolls off naturally). The ICE640 has a true crossover network seperating the the high and low frequencies. The ICE610 is rated at 100 watts and the ICE640 at 150 Watts. The ICE640 features a more accurate 1 inch silk soft dome tweeter versus the 1/2 inch of the ICE610. Note the Frequency response, the ICE640 goes down to 38Hz versus 60 Hz for the ICE610. If you are looking for a good background speaker for the price the ICE610 is an excellent value. But for more critical listening the ICE640 is the better value with the performance to back it up. Thank you for considering OSD Branded Speakers.

I just bought two pair of these speakers, and I want to connect both sets to one volume controller (already purchased). How do I parallel wire these since there is not output on the speaker?
By Customer Service - Q&A on March 20, 2012

Answer:
HI Jill,

You can terminate both pairs of speaker cables into the Volume Control (a tight fit using 16 gauge) or you can connect the first pair of speakers to the volume control and then connect a second speaker cable from the first pairs inputs twisting the two cables together. It will output audio signal to the second speaker from this connection. So you either home run both pair back to the volume control or daisy chain the second pair from the first pair. I hope that helps.

Great Ceiling Speakers!!
June 6, 2016
These are amazing speakers for the price! Purchased 3 sets (6 each) and installed them in a medical office setting with standard 2' x2' ceiling tiles at 8' height. These speakers are so well made with excellent install trim & mounting legs, did not need any back or support brackets for the ceiling tile install. The center cone swivels for directional audio. Connected the speakers to a Yamaha receiver and the sound is perfect, regardless of audio source (FM, I-Pod, Pandora)
Pros:
Great mounting set up, holds firmly. Cut outs provided for easy installation. Well made product.
Cons:
None to date.
Best Uses:
Indoor ceiling & wall use.
