Product code: OSD-MK670
In the single speaker category the MK670 sports a truly innovative design. The MK670 single speaker includes an angled 6.5” Kevlar® woofer, set at a 15° degree angle and a pivoting 1” aluminum dome for amazing imaging and staging. It is by natural the perfect setup for Dolby Atmos firing down speaker setup. The critical high and midrange frequencies are pointed toward the listener, not the floor, so when your video tracks left to right, the sound tracks right along with the video. With power handling up to 175, this is an ideal speaker to build a great ultimate home theater.
Why an Angled Speaker? The beauty of an angled speaker like the MK670 is that you can tailor the sound to your room. Suppose your sofa is not positioned directly below your ceiling speakers. The angled speaker allows you to point the audio directly at the "sweet spot." Also sometimes customers do not have room for an in wall center channel and use three MK670 in-ceiling speakers for front surround. This configuration is especially helpful when the listening area is close to the rear speakers.

If it needs to be light, strong, or safe, it needs to be Kevlar® . Kevlar® Cones are featured on both our MK Spitfire and Kevlar® Series Speakers.
Testing the Sound Quality of In-ceiling Speakers
Many customers like to test the sound quality of their new OSD Audio in-ceiling speakers before they install them. Keep in mind, however, that these flush-mount speakers are designed to be used in the wall or ceiling. Uninstalled in-wall/in-ceiling speakers will sound weak and tinny because without the proper enclosure (in this case your house wall) the speaker can’t produce the sound pressure level it needs. If you want to try them out, we recommend mounting the in-ceiling speakers into a box of about 3 cubic ft. or larger; or simply mount them in the ceiling and then listen. This will give you an accurate measure of the sound quality.
Paint the Grilles for a Custom Touch!
Many of our customers like to paint the grille of their in-ceiling speakers to match their room décor. Painting the grilles/trim won’t harm your speakers but be sure to use spray paint; never a brush. Brushing the grilles can clog the holes and interfere with sound quality. We also recommend using a fine spray paint gun, the inexpensive kind that you can pick up at your local hardware store. Our in-ceiling speakers also come with a paint shield to help guide you.
For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.
Introducing LCR Ceiling Series Speakers. With this revolutionary design you can get imaging and staging that would be lost with regular, down-firing ceiling speakers. We accomplish this because our woofers are set at a 15° degree angle. The critical high and midrange frequencies are then pointed toward the listener, not the floor. So, when your video tracks left to right, the sound tracks right along with the video. You can even use them for rear and side surrounds in a 5.1 or 7.1 system.
