Features & Specifications

Sold in pairs, the ICE850 in-ceiling speakers are one of our most popular models because these ceiling speakers offer high-caliber sound without the high caliber price tag. With a power handling of 175 Watts, the ICE850s are an ideal choice for both whole house audio and home theaters and are well suited for larger spaces due to the 8" Kevlar® woofer's ability to produce powerful but smooth bass tones. Kevlar® woofers retain their shape even at very high energy levels which means you can turn up the volume and experience spine-tingling sound without distortion or coloration. A sophisticated crossover network provides an exceptional blend of low and top-end frequency response.

Pivoting Aluminum Dome Tweeter
The job of the tweeter is to deliver the higher frequencies of music and soundtracks. Tweeters can be made of many different materials. The ICE850 use an aluminum dome tweeter which is highly accurate sounding on high notes. The tweeter is also adjustable, meaning it can be aimed toward the listening area. This can make a big difference in sound quality especially for dialog and higher frequencies.

Audiophiles Love Kevlar® Woofers
Kevlar® is a super strong material known for its ability to produce powerful but very smooth bass tones. Kevlar® woofer cones retain their shape even at very high energy levels, which means you can crank up the volume and experience spine-tingling sound without distortion or coloration.




For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Mark from Louisianna on November 27, 2011
If I buy this pair , do I still need a subwoofer ???
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 27, 2011

Answer:
Hi Mark:

These have excellent Frequency Response going all the way down to 26 Hz. Eight inch in-ceiling speakers typically have more bass due to the larger cone area of the 8" woofer. But it depends on your application. If these are for two channel stereo sound with a full range signal then they should have plenty of Bass. If you are using them in a Home Theater 5.1 or 7.1 setup they will be limited by the frequncy output of the Audio Video Receiver and will definetly need a subwoofer.

Great Speaker!!
October 30, 2013
Do not be fooled by the reasonable price. These speakers crank. I push them with 60 Watts RMS SONOS amp and they still want to keep going. I have heard speaker twice the price and would buy these three times over. I have been running them for about 3 months now with no complaints at all. Also have had a good experience with my order and support from OSD. Don't think twice , buy them...
Pros:
Go Kevlar - it is a must. Nice solid bass
Cons:
none
Best Uses:
These speakers happen to have sightly better sound than the OSD - MKW - 850 however I recommend both speakers.

Excellent Quality
July 6, 2013
Speakers are high quality with clear, crisp sound. I was installing surround sound in my new home and the Geek Squad highly approved of these speakers. They were easy to install and being a larger size, have great sound quality.
Pros:
High quality, reasonable price, well known product.
Cons:
Can't think of any.
Best Uses:
Where ever you want surround sound. The outside speakers sound as great as the indoor speakers

Great option for 5.1 / 7.1 in ceiling
September 9, 2012
I have installed many pairs of these speakers. They are great sounding option when you're not looking to spend $300.00 per speaker. Or not looking for very finite quality. Used in 5.1 systems mostly. The movable tweeter and fixed tilt are perfect for most surround installs.
Pros:
Full Sounding Good Output, Good Value Lower Priced, Great Sound Quality, Good Power Output, Attractive Design
Cons:
Grills Hard Put In

I have a theater room in ...
August 13, 2010
I have a theater room in my basement and recently replaced my center speaker with a Klipsch R-5800W a $400 speaker that I happen to have. I then searched for 4 round ceiling speakers to replace the 6 1/2" speakers already installed. I called OSD and the tech advised me to match the 8" center speaker so I did with four of these speakers. OH MY GOD!! Talk about a sound so clear and loud that it could drive you out of the room. It matched the Klipsch perfectly. So I got 4 speakers for the price of one Klipsch. OSD is the best. So glad I found the web site. The price they list is for 2 speakers which make a pair. I almost didn't buy them because I thought the price was for one speaker in a pair. Other than that its a perfect transaction with this company. Buy them and you will be pleasantly surprised.

February 2, 2009
The website is extremely user-friendly. As a non-technical shopper, I still felt like I could understand the difference between products and when comparing them to other websites, it was clear that the value was greater for the price. The ordering process was very easy and I was contacted almost immediately about a shipping question that I had -- and it was resolved over the phone without issue. The service was outstanding and my shipment arrived quickly as well. I would highly recommend this merchant.

December 1, 2008
Boys and girls I would like to post a comment on these speakers but first I'd like everyone to know what I'm comparing these to. My wife and I just built a 5k square foot house and I ordered speakercraft AIM 7 two(s) and four(s) for the whole house with the exception of our master bedroom and our workout room. I was going to buy something nice for these two rooms. I have Speakercrafts everywhere including AIM cinema 5's, wide 5's, and LCR 5's in my theater room. So I spent some HUGE money to get good sound. On whim I decided to give these a try after reading some reviews on AVSforums. I got these installed on my speakercraft mzc-88 8 zone receiver and MAN I'm IMPRESSED. I should have saved a few thousand dollars throughout the house and went with these everywhere!!! The sound is MUCH richer than the sound from the speakercraft's IMO. You will not go wrong with these speakers....If you don't like them I'd like to know what you believe is better.... I also got some AP850 outdoor speakers WOW...Again, glad I didn't spend the $$$ on speakercraft as I have heard a friends and mine BLOW his out of the H20 ;0).

November 13, 2008
I just installed mine, one speaker toward each corner of my front room's ceiling. I am more than impressed, it's an outstanding sound-field and I wish I'd done it sooner. I sold my old Bose 601 series III speakers today. My front room is filled with crisp highs, deep/rich lows, and I'm very happy. The install was easy with one suggestion. Buy a roto-zip drwyall tool (70 bucks) for the speakers holes and flat panel wire hookup behind the stero equipment. Again, I'm VERY IMPRESSED with this sound system. Thanks

I live in Sydney, ...
September 22, 2008
I live in Sydney, Australia in a beachfront apartment. I needed a pair of outdoor salt proof balcony speakers and an inside pair for my Living Room. I browsed every website I could find searching for stereo speakers with a decent frequency response range that would negate the need for a subwoofer. I had a hard time finding any until I found the Outdoor Speaker Depot. The ICE850Ís with their flush ceiling mount and the AP650Ís with their all weather design seemed to fit the bill and were excellent value for money. IÍm glad I put my fears of an international purchase aside because they sound great. I put the AP650Ís side by side against my $2500 KEF speakers and they sound better than the KEF!!! Warmer, richer, smoother. About four days after I had placed my order I decided to go on-line and track their whereabouts via USPS when I heard a knock on the door and guess what, it was my new speakers! So, no problems with delivery. Wiring them up to the SVC 100 and SVC 300 Volume controls was a breeze too. Customer service was excellent _ they answered all my questions over the email. I can highly recommend the Outdoor Speaker Factory, in fact I already have and I wonÍt hesitate to use them in the future. Simon.
