Features & Specifications

One of our most popular in-ceiling speakers (just look at the reviews), customers often install our ICE640s in 5.1 or 7.1 home theater rooms, although these speakers are also great for whole house audio. With excellent power handling capability (150W), the ICE640’s can produce very smooth bass notes, an even soundstage and realistic sound resolution even at high volumes. Features include a 6½" cone with butyl rubber surround, a 1" silk pivoting tweeter, and an advanced crossover network for clear dialog. Built from the ground up, OSD products offer the most thought out, totally dialed in sound while providing year after year of sonic excellence!

Pivoting Silk Dome Tweeter
The job of the tweeter is to deliver the higher frequencies of music and soundtracks. Many of our customers prefer the silk dome design because of the smoother vocals it produces. 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.

Powder Coated Aluminum Grille Will Not Rust
Many OSD in-ceiling speakers include powder-coated grilles that will not rust. This makes these ceiling speakers ideal for bathrooms, laundry rooms or even covered patios. Keep in mind, however, that these in-ceiling speakers are not outdoor speakers and should be exposed to a lot of moisture.

Should I Purchase special cable for in-ceiling speakers?
Wiring requirements will depend on your local building codes, but OSD Audio offers 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. Whether you choose our cable or another brand, try not to be tempted to use regular speaker wire. This type of wire was never designed to be run inside of walls or wall cavities.

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.

For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

By Heather from Vancouver, Canada on October 18, 2011
it says weather resistant but how resistant are they? could they be installed on the ceiling of my patio?

By Customer Service - Q&A on October 19, 2011

Answer:
The speaker grille is treated for moisture and will not rust but these speakers are not specifically built for the outdoors. They can be mounted in areas like bathrooms, laundry rooms or covered patios as long as the do not experience a lot of moisture as the butyl rubber surround will degrade over time.

Does OSD make a back box for these speakers? If so, how would I get them?

If you go to our first tab- Category>then in the drop down >Speakers> then In-ceiling Speakers> then Back Boxes. Or you can do a keyword search for BB6 - The Ice640 will work well with the, BB6 ( Back Box 6.5" Ceiling Speaker)

By Chad from Wisconsin on March 21, 2012
How do I get the speaker grill off?

By Customer Service - Q&A on March 22, 2012

Answer:
Hi Chad,
One way is to hold the speaker with your hands on the opposite sides of the frame. Before it is installed in the ceiling, the frame is flexible enough to work the grill out by twisting your hands back and forth, moving in opposite directions of each other until the grill is slowly worked out. Another way is to turn the speaker over release two of the dog ear clips and slowly push the grill out with the head of the install screws. Option one is better because there is less chance of denting the grill. Good luck.

By ANDY from gadsden, AL. on November 12, 2012
I want to add 4 of these speakers (ICE640) in a den ceiling as the main home theater speakers. I have a floor sub woofer I can use with these as well. Can my existing receiver (rated 4x100 watts)sufficiently power these speakers to create an above average sounding home theater experience? I am guessing that you CAN'T use a simple Blue Ray $150 home theater receiver with these speakers, if you disconnect the speakers provided in the set and replace with these ICE640'S?
By Customer Service - Q&A on November 14, 2012

Answer:
Hi Andy,
The ICE640 are our best polypropylene speaker and are commonly used in home theater. Your standard 100W receiver will drive these speakers; however, we recommend a surround sound receiver to experience the full enjoyment of the 5.1 or 7.1 audio soundtracks. We carry the Yamaha the RX-V373: http://www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com/home-theater-receiver-yamaha-rx-v373.html
If you’re doing all in-ceiling arrangement, consider using three angled matching speakers such as the ICE660 for your Front Stage (center, left and right). This will maximize the audio quality and give you the ultimate home theater experience.

Hi
I am planning on hooking these speakers up to a SONOS system, at 55 wats per channel. These speakers are rated at 150 watts per channel. Will they still work or is there not enough power to power them?

By Customer Service - Q&A on December 16, 2012

Answer:
Hi Stef,

The second specification you want to look at is sensitivity. The ICE640 is rated at 91dB. The higher the number, the more efficient the speaker and the less power you need to drive the speaker. This will work perfectly with your SONOS Connect Amp.

Do I need add a wood box to cover the speaker body in the ceiling to make the sound qulaity better?
By Customer Service - Q&A on December 8, 2011

Answer:
Charlie,
These speakers do not require back boxes but those can be beneficial to sound quality.

By Jon from stacy, mn on December 31, 2012
I was interested in these for my 5.1 surround however I have my center channel in the wall under my wall mount tv. Do you have a wall mount that would pair with the ceiling ones...Since the center is the most important?
By Customer Service - Q&A on December 31, 2012

Answer:
Hi Jon,

A couple of choices can match with the ICE640 series speakers. The first would be to utilize two of our IW545 LCR speakers that feature dual 5.25" mid-woofers and a 1" soft dome tweeter, which is the same woofer and tweeter material featured in the ICE640 speakers. Simply mount them horizontally with one woofer above the other. The second, more affordable, choice would be to use IW680, which shares similar cone materials and tweeter design as the ICE640. The IW545LCR is priced as each, and the IW680s are priced as a pair.

If you have your heart set on in-ceiling speakers, we recommend using the ICE660 Angled LCR speaker, which was created for Front Stage Left Center and Right speakers. The angled woofer/tweeter allows the speakers to be mounted closer to the wall where the monitor is mounted, so it will work better with your center channel speaker. The ICE640 would have to be mounted almost directly overhead from your optimum viewing/listening area. This would create a weird disconnect with the center channel speaker. Be sure to check out our learning section for some excellent information on front stage speaker placement: http://www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com/home-theater-learning.html

The speakers look and sound great. Tweeters can be angled or aimed to a specific location in the room. The cone speaker belts out plenty of mid-range and bass. The ICE640 worked out wonderfully in a 5.1 surround installation with a simple sub woofer on the living room floor. No disappointment with these speakers!

Best Bang for Your Buck
January 10, 2012
Bose, Infinity, Polk, Boston Acoustics, Klipsch, Outdoor Speaker Depot. "Which one of these things is not like the other?" Well, the last one, of course. What the last one has that the others do not is BEST value. Who would have ever thought OSD would be listed with these names? Not me, but I tell you what, I put OSD ahead of these when i recommend speakers from now on. These speakers are used for my surround in my home audio system. They are powered by an Onkyo receiver~110 watts per channel. It's difficult to assess the overall sound output as these are used mainly for background effects, but when I play music in all channel stereo mode, I would say these speakers do just fine. They have well constructed frames, materials, and a neatly made crossover unit. They have a pleasant sound, highs sound crisp and clean and mids are as smooth as they get. Mate them to a powered subwoofer to get the most from the overall sound because I do not get much for bass output with these speakers. If you do not have a subwoofer, it might be best to enclose them in their own enclosure with your installation as mine are only backed by insulation. Overall they do not sound as good as the ICE660 I also purchased from OSD, but do the job for surround and background music.

Attractive Design, Easy To Setup, Good Power Output, Easy to Mount

Used in our Master suite, sounds good for that size room, for a ceiling application you need to keep insulation off the rear of the cone. Getting the grille back in place is a little difficult but I guess a tight fit is a must.
