ACE (Architectural Ceiling Element) series ceiling speakers combine elegant, modern style with outstanding audio performance. Features include an 8” Kevlar® Woofer with Rubber Butyl Surround for long life, 1" Pivoting Titanium Dome Tweeter and up to 175W power handling. The micro-flange grilles have a thin (0.15") trim, giving the ACE speakers a clean and sleek appearance that seamlessly integrates into any design space. These flush mounted speakers are hardly noticeable; that is until they're playing. 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. Our learning center has some great tips on how to install your speakers and how to paint the grilles as well.
What Is Kevlar® ? 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.
Please note: Use cut-out diameter according to the bullet point on the website.
With a look deriving from famous World War II British Spitfire Jets, a new sophisticated crossover and the best component materials available, the ACE850 Spitfire Ultra Reference Series are the best ceiling speakers on the market. Premium technologies such as Kevlar® woofers, pivoting Titanium dome tweeters and sophisticated crossovers provide deep bass and exceptional top-end frequency response.
Kevlar® is the best component for woofers. It responds note for note without coloration and has big cranking power so you can dial up your system for higher listening levels.
You won't find yourself wishing for more or less treble, mid-range or bass output from one speaker just because you don't happen to sit right between them.
88dB is correct. 92dB was based upon a Universal Owner's Manual that was posted in 2016 that had not been updated until later. Sorry for the confusion.
