On sale while supplies last. Another no-compromise speaker pair popular with builders, the ICE810 Contractor Series in-ceiling speaker is similar to the ICE800 but includes some upgraded features such as a 1 inch soft dome center-mounted swivel tweeter and slightly higher power handling capability. Like the ICE800, the ICE810 pair includes an 8" polypropylene cone woofer with butyl rubber surround and is often used in production homes and large commercial spaces where sound is needed in large areas.
Soft Dome Swivel Tweeter
The job of the tweeter is to deliver the higher frequencies of music and soundtracks. The tweeter on the ICE810 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.
What Size Speaker is Right for You?
If your room is larger than 140 square feet, consider installing an 8" in-ceiling speaker. The larger 8” cone delivers excellent frequency response (the range of musical tones a speaker can produce). In addition, bass response, or the ability of a speaker to crank out those low notes, is vastly improved over small cone sizes. An 8-inch speaker can be used in home theaters and distributed audio. For rooms with high ceilings, an 8-inch cone makes a huge difference in low frequency because whole house audio systems don't have the advantage of having separate subwoofers to handle LFE (low frequency effects).
Benefits of Butyl Rubber Surround
Surrounding the speaker cone, Butyl Rubber Surround is a tough, moisture-resistant rubber that helps reflect energy and provides excellent sound damping characteristics. Most professional agree that Butyl Rubber Surround is a step up from typical form surrounds and benefits include superior durability. 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.
Our Custom Series in-wall and in-ceiling speakers offer high performance and great appearance at a surprisingly affordable price. Every model uses components usually found only in architectural speakers costing considerably more.
Polypropylene cones, PCB crossover networks and weather- resistant construction are standard on many of the models. When price is a concern and other higher-end speakers don't fit the budget, AS series speaker is the logical choice. They are ideal for use in production homes, large commercial background music and video applications. With different models to choose, you no longer need to compromise between budget restraints and great sound.
