Add the ACE400 in every room in the house and you'll still have money left over to throw a big party! About the size of a light can, ACE400 offers impressive sound for its small size and price. Part of our Architectural Ceiling Element, this speaker includes micro-flanged grilles with a very thin trim line, about .15". The ACE Series comes in every price point, from our very lowest like the ACE400 you see here, to our top-of-the line 8" trimless thin bezel Spitfire ceiling speaker. Sold in pairs, the ACE400 is a great speaker for large areas where you need a lot of speakers but don't have an endless budget. This speaker is rated at 60W with a 3" woofer, so it's best for background music; however, in spite of the low price, customers often compliment us on the very solid sound the ACE400 in-ceiling speaker provides.
8" 150W Pro Series In-Wall Home Theater Subwoofer, Easy Install and Paintable Grille, Single - IWS8
In-wall subs are a great way to experience low frequencies effects without filling up floor space. An excellent in-wall subwoofer at an excellent price, the IWS8 is an 8" passive sub with power handling up to 150 Watts. Installation is easy with our dog-ear bracket system that mounts to the sheet-rock after the cut-out hole has been made. The grille is also paintable to match your room decor and we include a cutout template that doubles as a paint shield.
Why Go Trimless?
It's really a matter of aesthetic preference. These flush mounted speakers are hardly noticeable; that is until they're playing. Our Architectural Ceiling Element (ACE) Trimless speakers do not include the 3/4-inch trim you typically see around in-wall and ceiling speakers. The micro flange grilles are attached by extremely powerful magnets that stay put for quick and easy installation. Adds less visual impact on your architectural audio installation.
How Does this Speaker Mount in the Ceiling?
Customers often ask us if they need special installation mounting brackets on their OSD ceiling speakers. The answer is no and here’s why. All our in-ceiling speakers feature a dog leg (L-shaped) mounting system that is part of the frame. Before you install the speakers, remove the grille and you’ll see several the mounting screws near the front frame. These screws need to be loosened to activate the dog leg clamps. Use a screwdriver to loosen (turn to the left) these screws and the clamp will come loose. When the speaker is in position in the ceiling, tighten (turn to the right) the screw and the speaker will be secured to the ceiling.
Subwoofer Amplifier Suggestions
OSD Audio in-wall subs are passive devices, meaning they do not include a built-in amplifier like you would find in our active "box" subs. You will have to provide additional power, specifically a subwoofer amplifier, to drive it. We recommend our SMP200 dedicated subwoofer amplifier that features 120 watts (mono) and front panel controls, phase switch, frequency control knob (35 Hz to 160 Hz) and volume control.
