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.

Will your speakers end up looking like this one. These were exterior rated yet in 3 years this is what happen to them
1 Answers
Hi Brad: It looks like you lost your surround which was weak link. WE have been selling this speaker for more than 10 years and I have never seen one of ours look like that. The key is our surround is sanoprene a synthetic rubber that has holds up longer than foam or cheap rubber. Ours are warranty for 10 years. TL/4577

can these speakers be spray painted?
1 Answers
Hi Don: Yes they can be spray painted. I believe there is a removable cloth glued to the inside of the speaker. This helps when spray painting the speaker but you need to remove it once your done or the perforated holes will be clogged and will block the sound. Good luck TL/4545

August 21, 2017
I have a covered porch and would like to install in ceiling speakers. The issue is that, the ceiling is bead board siding. I'm looking for speakers and a support bracket to install since the siding is to thin to support. Most likely this would be done after the hole has cut out.
1 Answers
Hi Ralph: I would go with Patio Speakers like our AP525 and mount to your beams. The advantage of the sealed patio speaker is you can aim it for better coverage than any in-ceiling speaker. The AP525 has a two way mounting bracket that does the typical swivel and with the unique adjustable mount you can tilt the speaker as well. You can still run your wires in the ceiling and cutting a small hole above the speaker to connect. You will wan to mount the speakers 6 to 8 feet apart. The AP525 and AP650 (the 6.5 inch version ) have the highest outdoor rating. And unlike a in-ceiling speaker the Patio speaker has the tuned cabinet that sounds the same no matter where you place it. If you have good access behind the ceiling you could possibly use new construction brackets but the in-ceiling speaker will not match the mounting flexibility or sound quality of the patio speaker available in white or black finish.

have an existing hole that is a 9 inch cut out. can I make these speakers work in that hole. Thanks
1 Answers
Hi Dwayne, Look at the ICE800WRS. This features a cut-out hole of 9.25", which means increasing your current hole size slightly, then it should pop right in. If you are looking to fill just a single hole then you would want to use our ICE800TTWRS. The ICE800WRS is packaged as a stereo pair; the ICE800TTWRS is packaged as a single speaker. You should also enjoy more bass response from the 8” cone of the ICE800WRS versus the 6.5" cone of the ICE600WRS. TL/MA

1 Answers
Hi Neil: It depends on what you mean by a mono speaker. Is the a single two conductor connection coming into the room? Then yes you can use this speaker for both your bathroom. If you have a four conductor right (+/-) and left (+/-) cable then you would want our ICE 600 TT WRS. This speaker features a Dual Voice coil design that has a separate input for each voice coil. What it does it takes your stereo four conductor input and sums the signal into mono full range output. So it really depends on your speaker wires coming into the bathroom on which speaker will work best for you. Really would need to know what your true input signal is. TL/4410

Dean
from CA asked:
April 29, 2017
Can you use Cat-5 to wire these for sound directly to/from your computer?
1 Answers
Hi Dean: Most computers need powered speakers to connect to. You can add an amplifier like out XMP 100 and wire speaker wire like our CL3/FT4 rated in-wall, outdoor and direct burial wire from the amplifier. Then connect your computer/laptop with a 3.5mm to RCA adaptor cable connected to the Headphone or audio jack of the computer/laptop. Then you can power up to two pair of speakers maybe one indoor and a second pair at you computer. There are A or B speaker buttons that can be pushed in at the same time to play both speakers at once. The XMP 100 is a digital amplifier that runs at 93% efficiency. TL/4335

I'm building an outdoor kitchen/bar and would like to mount these on the front of the bar right under the overhang of the countertop. A blowing rain could possibly hit the speaker. Could these speakers withstand that?
1 Answers
Hi Kyle: These are in-ceiling speakers meant to be mounted to a surface with a dedicated enclosed area behind it. Otherwise we would recommend a patio speaker with a sealed enclosure like our AP525 (5.25" 2 way) or the AP650 (6.5" 2 way). If you are mounting into a surface with the enclosure than the ICE-600 WRS will work for your application. The AP patio speakers will work in any application. TL/4183

Is there a recommendation for added weatherproofing of these speakers? I have used these speakers on a covered outdoor porch for 3 years in the salt air of coastal Florida. The outside grate covering eventually rusted. I am now replacing them and would like to know what else I can do to prevent this. Should I add a coat of rust preventive paint? To do this, I suppose I would loose the mesh cloth that adheres to the inside of the grate. Also, an installer here said he sprays the speakers with lubricant (although bugs stick to it). Any suggestions?
1 Answers
Hi Joe, You can use a Rust-O-Leum paint for extra rust resistance. Yeah, the mesh cloth will have to be removed before painting and glued back on after if still usable.

I want to replace a pair of MK650's with the ICE600WRS. Will this speaker fit properly in the existing holes for the MK650?
1 Answers
Hi Rick, The cut out diameter for the MK650 is 8 1/8" when the cut out for the ICE600WRS is 7 5/8" so it is slightly smaller. It would be able to work still as the outer trim would cover the hole. If you are able to cut a bigger hole, I would suggest the ICE800WRS which the cut out is 9 5/16" CS 2545

How long can these be expected to last under a covered outside porch only 30m away from the ocean? Thanks very much.
1 Answers
Hi Jamie: They should last quite a while as long as you take a few precautions when installing the pair. First you want to line the inner frame with a bead of silicon as you insert the speaker in the hole. You may want to spray a clear coat to the speaker grill which can be done once you remove the grill. make sure there is no cloth on the inside of the speaker. If so remove the cloth and discard. You should enjoy years of listening to your ICE600WRS speakers. TL-2139

HI Greg: Everything is included with the product. You just have to cut your hole using the enclosed template. Then remove the grill so you can access the four mounting screws that control the dog ear clamps that will hold your speaker in place. You will need to use CL3/FT4 rated speaker, which is approved for running inside the walls. FT4 is the Canadian equivalent for CL3. TL-2131

I am planning to install outdoor speakers for a covered patio and pool application. The covered patio will also have a tv on it. I'm not sure how many speakers I need, volume controls, amp, etc. I want the speakers to have a wireless connection to Internet radio, and was thinking of using the Sonos bridge and amp for that connection. I was thinking of installing two speakers in the ceiling over the porch, and two speakers in the eave facing the pool, two zones. What equipment would you recommend for this type of install?
1 Answers
Hi Steve, Sounds like a great outdoor system! We suggest connecting an OV300 volume control to the Sonos connect amp. Then connect a pair of ICE600WRS ceiling speakers and possibly the AP525 patio speakers pair facing the pool. Run these in parallel from the OVC300 volume control and set the impedance to 2X.

I plan to connect to my Yamaha RX-V673 AV Receiver. I currently run my surround sound speakers with my TV and plan to run the other speakers for my audio only.

Hi Jimmer, You’ll need an additional amplifier to drive 7 zones. Take a look at our 8-zone kit that comes with a high current amp (AMP300), ISS8 speaker selector and indoor volume controls. You can also buy the components individually, say if you want outdoor volume controls instead. CL/MA 1697

I am replacing four in wall speakers after 16 years. the cut out hole is 8 X 51/2. They will function and the front and rear surround speakers. I have an old JBL center speaker that works fine. Do you have any recommendations. Thanks Rick
1 Answers
Hi Rick: Your cutout hole would tell us that you are replacing 5.25" In-Wall Speakers. Our best 5.25" In-Wall would be the IW540 but the Cut-Out Diameter is 9 5/8" x 6 1/8". It would help to know the JBL center Channel model number so I can see the specifications. Is it a Dual 5.25" with a 1" Tweeter; what is the cone material used for both the woofer and Tweeter? That will also help to pick out the best timbre matched speakers to compliment the JBL Center. Also do you have the ability to enlarge the hole size to accommodate a 6.5 inch 2 way typically with a Cutout of 7 5/8" x 10 13/16". You have more choices in 6.5" and matches better to a Dual 5.25" Center (if that is what your JBL speaker is). Please let us know what you think. TL #1409

1 Answers
Hi Rafael--Yes, we have enough in stock to cover your needs. The ICE600WRS would be an excellent choice and is treated specifically for environments like you describe. If you're still concerned, you can coat the speaker with clear coat (spray can only) which is available at any local hardware store. New construction brackets are typically used when the studs or joists are exposed before mounting the sheet rock or ceiling tiles. The two advantages of using brackets are: 1) determining exact placement of the speaker while providing a template to cut the mounting hole; and 2) to provide additional support. All of our speakers feature a retrofit mounting system so they can be installed without the new construction bracket. If you decide to use a bracket, the model number is NCCB6 which is in stock. Hope this helps. Namaste! MA/CL

July 9, 2012
I am currently building a covered back porch on my house and would like to know if the ICE600WRS speakers would work for my application. I am going to have 3 listening areas on the porch, each controlled by its own volume control (SVC300?). 1st area is a 12’x30’ covered screened area with a TV and would include 2 pairs (total of 4 speakers) of the ICE600WRS and would like to listen to the TV or music on these speakers, 2nd area is a 12’x45’ unscreened covered area that would include 2 pairs (total of 4 speakers) of the ICE600WRS, and the 3rd area would be the yard and pool outside of the porch and I would install a pair of AP640 (total 2 speakers) facing out under the eave. Is this enough speakers, should I go with the 8” or the stereo speaker such as the ICE600TTWRS? Would I need a switch box like the ISS4 and an AMP like the AMP200? I attached a sketch of the porch layout to help understand my layout.
1 Answers
Hi James: would configure your system as follows: Amplifier: AMP200 connected to the DSM4 speaker selector. You will be driving three possibly all four zones. The DSM4 would be connected to (2) SVC300 Impedance-matching volume controls located in the in the smaller screened-in porch in the wall near the door. One would drive 2 pair of ICE600WRS in the 12 x 30 foot room. A second SVC300 would be connected to 2 pair of ICE800WRS for the 12 x 45 foot room. A third Volume Control (the OVC300, outdoor VC) would be mounted outside at the stairs and would connect to 2 pair of AP650. The wire connection from the AMP to the Speaker Selector to the Volume Controls would be done with CL3 14/4 speaker cable (14-gauge 4-conductor, in a single jacket), then 14/2 from the Volume Controls to the each individual speaker. In all three areas, you can run a single 14/2 to the closest right and left speaker of the two pair. You can then run another 14/2 from the input of the first pair of speakers out to the second pair to the second designated pair in each zone. Each volume control has an impedance-matching setting which should be set at a minimum 4x since you will be driving this with an AMP200—a true High Current amplifier. I can send you a basic diagram to your email that is listed under a separate email. There are some ideas I can discuss with you regarding your sources as well. I hope that helps. TL

February 6, 2012
I am looking for some "outdoor" speakers for my covered patio. I am planning on mounting these in the hardy plank (1/2" or 5/8" thick, I believe) wall that was created when the cover was installed. Behind it is the old roof, it that helps you imagine how these will be installed. See attached picture. Do I need anything else to mount these? Is this a good application? Should I installed these in the eaves instead? Patio is approximately 12 feet deep by 30 feet long. Planning on running these off of my home receiver.
1 Answers
Hi Mike, Based on your photo, I believe a patio speaker would be a better option. In fact, I would suggest two of our AP550TT Dual Voice Coil stereo speakers connected through our OVC300 outdoor volume control. Because this is a stereo speaker with two tweeters, it provides more music coverage (to your large area) with no concern for right and left separation. You can easily mount them 12 to 15 feet apart with the included bracket. The volume control matches the two speakers to your receiver and allows you to control the volume while in the patio. You can connect these to either the A or B speaker output from your receiver. You will need to use our 16 gauge 4-conductor CL3 rated cable. A patio speaker features a tuned enclosure specific to the drivers utilized. The in-ceiling speaker is subject to the area it is mounted in and the enclosure behind it, which (based on the image you sent) could vary greatly. TL

The speakers worked reliably and delivered good sound until just recently when one speaker quit. I removed the speaker expecting to find a rusted mess, but visually the speaker looks fine, except for rust on the metal ring that holds the membrane. Still, the working parts of the speaker seemed intact, so I cannot tell why the speaker failed. The speakers are currently not available, so I don't know if I will by another one to replace it (have to buy the pair) or shop around.
ProsGood sound. Relatively easy installation.
ConsI am not sure what's to be expected in terms of longevity. Mine worked 5 years.

great speakers & great company
I was a little hesitant buying these at first after reading some reviews about them being made in China, but went ahead and gave them a try. I can tell you first hand the speakers sound great and the company was excellent to work with. Speakers shipped and arrived as promised. I installed the speakers in my outdoor patio ceiling. No problems whatsoever. Instructions were perfect and easy to follow.

Enjoying full stereo sound on the patio
My wife and I were looking to bring music to our patio for relaxing evenings outdoors. The ICE600WRS speakers were very easy to install and blend in perfectly. They provide a great full, rich sound quality that we are really enjoying.

Holding up in the Bahamas!
We have these speakers installed under the eaves of our house on Cat Island. I was worried about the housing holding up under those conditions, the island was hit hard by Irene, but they still look and sound great! We are building another house, and these are a MUST HAVE. Our house is right on the beach, but you can really only hear them from the water when right in front of the house. It's pretty nice to listen to music while floating in the sea. I will admit that we turn it up loud when no one is around, but as another reviewer said, the speakers point down, so there is not much sound trickiling over to the neighbor. The sound quality holds up great, even when turned up, no static or rattling. We LOVE em!

Tremendously great sound quality!
I found OSD when searching for speakers to have mounted to a new pavillion roof structure built above my new paver patio. WOW! These have such great sound quality that my contractor says he is buying two sets for his porch. I live close up to other properties and since the speakers are mounted and facing down, the awesome sound doesn't seem to carry and bother the neighbors yet! That may change when my son inches up the volume when I'm not around. I usually don't have time to write reviews, but had to take the time to express how pleased I am.

Great Speaker!!! Great Price!!!!
I purchased one set of these speakers for my home during a remodel. I tested the speakers and was very pleased with them. The adjustible tweeter worked well with my garage ceilings. I purchased the Weather resistant speakers for my garage/workshop.

Installed two pairs of these outside. One pair under my patio and one in the eaves closer to the pool. The sound is amazing. Connected them with individual in-wall controllers, also bought here, so it can be louder out by the pool and not blaring under the patio. Since these are in-ceiling, they fire downward and the sound is retained in my yard which keeps the neighbors happy even when the sound is turned up.

Installed these on a front porch. Great looking, basically you don't see them and they sound great too. The only thing that would have made them better is an even lower price. I'm always looking for a bargain. These are worth the price.

Installed in my bathroom, the sound is excellent and I was hard pressed to install both as when doing a test with only one the sound was so good I hesitated!! Excellent speaker, very highly recommended, very helpful staff at OSD made this purchase a breeze, and the choice very easy. Quick shipping, excellent quality products and easy installation is the perfect combination. I will certainly buy again from OSD next time I need to revise my sound system.
