Features & Specifications

This 8-inch in-ceiling, weather-resistant speaker pair is great for high-humidity areas, including outdoor patios, bathrooms and laundry rooms. With high power handling and an 8-inch polypropylene woofer in each, these speakers deliver superior sound that covers large spaces. The ICE800WRS 8-Inch Weather-Resistant Ceiling Speaker Pair works well with a CL-3 in-wall rated speaker wire, which is designed to run inside walls.

What Kind of Cable Is Needed?
We recommend purchasing our CL-3 in-wall rated speaker wired designed to run inside walls. The National Electrical Code (NEC) specifies fire-retardant wire in all crawl spaces or wall cavities. CL-3 rated wire is not much more expensive and includes special shielding specifically for in-wall use. OSD Audio offers CL3/FT4 cable that is UL (fire) rated for all residential and most commercial in-wall and in-ceiling applications. Always check your local building codes before you run wires.

For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.

Tim
from College Grove, TN. asked:
February 12, 2017
With the ICE800WRS construction it is impossible to disassemble the grill from the assembly. How do you spray paint the grill face?......
1 Answers
Hi Tim: The grill is removable since you have to to remove it to access the screws of the toggle brackets to actually mount the unit to your hole cutout. There is also a thin cloth you will want to remove as well from the inside of the grill. Also included with the kit is a template to cutout your mounting hole. This also doubles as a paint shield to cover the baffle allowing you to paint the frame. There are two lines clearly marked Cutout and paint shield.I have been told there are a couple of ways to pain the grill and frame. One with spray paint which might be harder to match and the other the good old paint brush with the exact matching paint. painting with a brush will take a couple of passes and it is recommended to water the paint down a bit. Again remove the inner cloth if there is one. You also might want to check for a You Tube video or ask at a paint store. Good luck TL/4216

Can I mount these in a vaulted patio ceiling (4:12 pitch)?
1 Answers
Hi Keith: Will you be applying a ceiling where you enclose the joists so you have a surface to install the ICE 800 WRS. My recommendation would be would be to use one of our unique AP525 or AP650 Patio speaker where you can aim your sound better for maximum coverage. It will work whether you enclose the ceiling or not. The bracket swivels and also tilts providing maximum flexibility when installing. You can also change the aim after you have installed them. The AP Patio speakers also feature a true crossover and a better sound quality than the ICE WRS speakers. TL/4330

Nate
from Mason, Michigan asked:
March 31, 2017
By pair, that means it comes with 2 speakers correct?
1 Answers
Hi Nate: Yes there are two speakers one for right channel and the second for your left channel. You want to place between 8 and 10 feet apart. Both speakers are in one box. The ICE 800TT WRS is a single stereo speaker that features dual voice coil. It is for an application where you only have room for a single speaker but have both a right (+/-) and Left (+/-) coming into the zone. So you connect the left to one set of inputs and the right to the second set. It is called summed mono stereo Full range output. They have dual tweeters one for left and the second for right. These speakers are sold as each (single). The ICE 800 WRS is sold as stereo pairs. TL/4281

Sam
from Canada asked:
January 5, 2017
I have a 2 channel amp that is 130W/ch @ 8 ohms. Could I run 2 of these speakers per channel? If so, in series or parallel? Thanks
1 Answers
Hi Sam: It depends on the 2 channel amplifier you are using. If it is a high current amplifier that has no problem running two pairs of speakers wired in parallel. That will drop your impedance down to 4 ohms and will get you the highest output. Running two speakers in Series establish (doubles your impedance from 8 to 16 ohms). This also cuts your output in half. Does your amplifier/Receiver have an A/B speaker switch as well that allows you to play both A and B at the same time?. Typically this will connect your two pair of speakers in Parallel (4 ohm). TL/4167

Hi: Juan: They will be too big for your cutout hole. These speakers need a cut out hole of 9 5/16". Your cutout hole is 8 1/2". The 6.5" ICE-600 WRS are 7 5/8" and would not work. Do you have the ability to make your cutout hole bigger? There is a cut-out hole template included with each speaker. TL/4044

I am looking for 2 sets of these speakers, since they are "out of stock" when is the next shipment? Also do you have a comparable unit that I might be interested in. Exterior use, but not exposed to extreme moisture. Thanks Bob
1 Answers
HI Bob: I would recommend looking at the MK840. It features a weather resistant Powder Coated Grill and a Polypropylene cone. I would recommend using a little silicone around the inside of the frame when you mount it in the enclosure. Definitely a step up over the ICE-800 WRS in components and design. And they are in stock... TL/3167

I am interested in spray painting the speaker grill and trim ring of the speaker. Once the grill is removed, I found that it has a felt-like overlay inside. Any suggestions on how to paint these items, without coating the felt overlay, not sure i it is removable. Thanks
1 Answers
Hi Chris, There really is no way to paint it correctly as long as that cloth is attached. It is best to remove the cloth as gently as possible to keep it intact and then paint the grill. After you have painted it and it has dried, you can use an adhesive spray to reconnect the cloth to the speaker, although it is not required. Thanks! BM 2749

Scott
from Miami asked:
December 8, 2013
I have about a 2 foot eave on the back of my house. For a cleaner look I was thinking of installing a pair of these speakers instead of ones such as the AP650's. My only concern is since these will be facing directly downward I won't hear them as well in my pool which is about 15 ft from my house.
1 Answers
Hi Scott, You are correct in assuming that you would not hear the speakers as well in a down-firing form than you would in a patio style. I would recommend running the AP650 patio speakers so that the audio will travel out towards the pool and will also supply more bass response. Another idea would be to run the patio speakers or rock speakers out beyond the patio to cover the yard and then run the in-ceiling speakers in the patio ceiling to cover the patio. Call us with questions. Thanks! -BM 2385

I am building a new house that will have a steam generating unit in a custom shower. Will these speakers have sufficient moisture resistance for a steam room environment?
1 Answers
Hi Mike, For areas with higher levels of moisture, we recommend adding a ring of silicone around the trim when pressing the speaker into the ceiling. Before installation, it's also a good idea to spray the grills with a Rustoleum. The grills come with a powder coating but the additional paint will give your investment added protection from the elements. CL/MA 1830

mayra
from hamilton michigan asked:
August 28, 2012
I'm buying this speaker for my porch but I don't know what accessories I need to buy for this project.
1 Answers
Hi Mayra, Assuming you have a covered patio that has a ceiling with a hollow space behind it, all you need is something to cut a hole in the ceiling to mount the speaker. The speaker features a mounting system that requires removing the grill so you can access the mounting screws that are attached to the dog-ear brackets that secure the speaker to the ceiling and frame. This takes a Phillips head screwdriver. You will also need two-conductor speaker wire from your source (either receiver or amplifier) that will connect to each speaker. The two-conductor is color coded positive (red) and negative (black). You will need one from the Right output and one from the Left output of the receiver/amplifier. OSD Audio offers CL-rated cable designed specially for in-wall and outdoor installations. We hope this helps. TL/MA 1260

Does this spekaer have an IP rating?
1 Answers
Hi Magnus, These speakers do not have an official IP rating and are typically used in covered sealed patio areas not exposed directly to the elements. They utilize aluminum grills and an ABS plastic frame, and the driver is polypropylene and the surround is butyl rubber. The back of the speaker is sealed from the elements by the weatherproofed driver and surround under the grill. If I had to create an IP number for this speaker, I would say IP51. I hope that helps.

Speakers are very good quality and sound is excellent
Speakers are very good quality and the sound is crisp. Installation was very easy, my only suggestion is using a drop of oil inside the brackets so that the screws slide easier, without the use of oil it feels like the crews may break the plastic mounting brackets because there is a lot of friction.

Great flush outdoor speakers!
I'm a professional audio installer, who has over 20 years of experience with speakers and how they need to perform. What I like the best about these speakers are how full they sound at low volumes! I usually install these speakers for back patio sound and have been very pleased with how they perform. They are very clear and have awesome mid bass at any level you want to drive them which is great for patio environments! I highly recommend them!
ProsGreat midbass! Allow time for them to break in.

Surprisingly great sound
I am running 4 ICE800WRS speakers from the ceiling of my covered patio in South Florida. The covered area is roughly 35' X 15'. I am powering the 4 speakers from an AMP200 amplifier and running it as a Sonos system zone. I originally wanted to add a powered subwoofer to the setup but struggled with the wire run and gave up on the idea - so glad I did! These speakers deliver the highs and deep lows with precision...and volume! I recommend layering at least a 6" think insulation blanket above the speakers. I am extremely pleased.

Excellent value speakers, great sound!
I've bought two sets of these speakers and they did not disappoint. They were easy to hook up, and sound absolutely fantastic out on two different patios. One small issue: the dog ears that swing out and grab onto the sheetrock ceiling. There is an akward time as you begin screwing the clamps to tighten, where they swing out of the hole but are not fully seated in the channel as they clamp down. I broke three of the eight tabs (2 speakers) before I figured out you need to pull the screw down into the channel before starting to tighten it. Once seated, these speakers sound great, look good, and seem to stand up to the weather.
