Features & Specifications

The unique design of the MK660 LCR speaker positions the 6.5” woofer at a 15° degree angle, which creates a more realistic sound stage when front surrounds are installed closer to the wall or right above the monitor. It is by natural the best setup for Dolby Atmos firing down solution. Not only is this speaker affordable, it offers customers with smaller or odd shaped rooms more placement flexibility to optimize their home theater experience. The critical high and mid-range 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. You can even use them for rear and side surrounds in a 5.1 or 7.1 system.

Why Use An Angled In-ceiling Speaker?

The angled speaker can be a real problem solver because not every space is ideal for custom home theater sound applications. The angled in-ceiling speaker features a 15 degree angle for the mid bass driver plus a pivoting tweeter for placement flexibility. This speaker can be part of three piece set to handle the front stage of the surround system when both on-wall and in-wall are not a favorable option. The angled design allows the ideal placement in the ceiling closer to the wall just above the monitor. This creates a more realistic sound image when compared to normal in-ceiling speakers that are mounted closer to or directly above the viewing area. Standard in-ceiling speakers are generally placed at least three feet from the wall to avoid reflective sound. The angle speaker can be placed within a foot of the wall

What Is Butyl Rubber Surround?
With almost double the shelf life of foam, butyl rubber has been the choice of speaker designers looking to optimize the sound based upon materials that go together. The Surround is just one of the integral parts of the speaker's motor structure. 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.

Should I Purchase Special Cable for In-ceiling speakers?

Wiring is not included with in-ceiling speakers so you will have to purchase some. While wiring requirements will depend on your local building codes, OSD Audio offers CL3/FT4 cable that is UL (fire) rated for all residential and most commercial in-wall and in-ceiling applications. (The exception is you cannot run this cable in heating or cooling ducts in commercial applications.) This cable includes a heavy-duty outer jacket approved for in-wall/in-ceiling installation. The high quality plastic jacket is also very flexible so it's easy to run the wires inside the wall.


For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.

Other Product Info

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 mid-range 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.

i have an exist 5 ceiling speakers arrange in my theater and 1 subwoofer on the floor in front. Is it possible to add 2 atmos ready speakers so as to implement dolby atmos 5.1.2 ?
1 Answers
Hi Pius: It all depends on your Receiver as long as it has a DOLBY ATMOS processor. The output is listed as Height or ATMOS speaker. Some of the newer Receivers also feature DTS:X. The angled speaker would be mounted 3 to 4 feet in front of the optimum viewing/listing position. The ACE-670 is a Trim-less version which will work as well. TL/4442

Can you use this speaker as a center channel speaker?
1 Answers
Hi Eddie: The angled speaker was created as an LCR option where you could not use in-wall, on-wall or Floor standing speakers This would be Left, Center and right speakers. As you may know you want your three front stage speakers to have matching characteristics like same woofer material, Tweeter design and crossover components for proper timbre match. But you will notice we list these speakers as Surround sound and Effects (like for ATMOS or DTS:X) due to the placement flexibility of the angled speaker. The key to all channels is that the speakers needs to have the tweeter pointed at the optimum listening/viewing area. That us why all of our speakers feature both pivoting or swivel options on the tweeter. Good luck TL/4164

I just purchased 5 of the ICE660 for my 5.1 install, in a bit of an odd configured room, and not visually satisfying to my spouse for my nice Polk Audio speakers attached to the wall/ceiling, so going with the angled in-ceiling ICE660 OSD speakers. Understand, the speakers should be pointed toward the listening area and should be 6-10 feet apart. What about the distance btwn the center and L and R speakers? [I can see the L and R speakers, say 8 feet apart, and center splitting the diff, at 4 feet??]
1 Answers
Hi Dennis, Yes that is a good amount of distance for your front LCR set up. The important part is that the front speakers are equal distance from the listening area. CS 2532

Can these speakers be used for all 7.1 or do I have to pair them with something else
1 Answers
Hi Rick, Yes. These are sold as a single speaker just for that purpose! You can run 3 upfront as your center and left/right, two as the surround, and two as the back. Just make sure they're all installed so that the angles are directed at your primary listening area. Let us know if you have any follow up questions. Thanks! -BM 2366

March 30, 2013
Will these fit in a 8.5 inch cutout? If I use this as a center speaker in a 5.1 set up, what should I pair it with for front and back sets?
1 Answers
Hi Randy, The ICE660 LCR ceiling speaker has a cut-out diameter that measures 8 1/8" inches. When using the ICE660 as a center channel, customers typically install two more ICE660s for a first-rate front stage, (center and left and right). Add a pair of ICE640s for the rear channel and you'll have an excellent 5.1 surround sound speaker system. CL/MA 1749

The speaker connectors, do they require banana plugs and if they do or, what type would be required?
1 Answers
John This would be a bare wire screw type connection. Customers often put banana plugs like the OSD-HB-002 on the other end of the speaker cable, with a wall plate like the OSD-WP8 where your amp or receiver is located. CL/MA

Great speaker and value.
I really like every speaker I get from OSD! The only concern or problem I had with these speakers is that the customer noticed the rim of the speaker is "off white" and kind of stood out against their pure white ceiling. I told them that it is because they are paintable and I think that will solve the concern.
Merchant Response:Yes - it is paintable.

Good Sound
I bought these because they are angled and will be using them as surround sound speakers. I wanted the sound directed into the room instead of at the floor. The only reason that I am not giving them 5 stars is because they are not white. They are more like a yellowish white. I spray painted them because they looked awful against the white ceiling.
ProsGood sound for the money
ConsNot white

Looks and Feels like a great product.
I uploaded the plans to my house and I was contacted the same day by there customer service. They suggested how many and which speakers I should install based on my budget. They made great recommendations and didn't attempt to upsale me items I didn't need. So I went ahead and purchased these items after some careful review. I have yet to install these speakers but they look and feel as if they are made really well. I am very happy with the purchase and I look forward to doing more business with OSD. Fast shipping and great price.

Excellent speaker to minimize floor space
Installs easy. I bought these to replace my traditional floor standing speakers. My goal was to maximize the floor space in the entertainment room, I put two in the ceiling by the projection screen and two in the wall for surround sound. Primary use is for movies not for music, but the speakers sound great for both.
ProsLow profile on living space
ConsNeeds a few inches in the wall or ceiling to accommodate bulk of speaker ~ 6 inches behind wall or in ceiling. Do not use screw gun to secure in dry wall, use traditional hand tool to mount.

Unexpected surprise
I purchased these speakers for my rear surround channels. They sound amazing! Now my problem is that I need to upgrade my other speakers as these sound so much better and overpower my front channels.

Best Bang for Your Buck
Bose, Infinity, Polk, Boston Acoustics, Klipsch, Outdoor Speaker Depot. "Which one of these things is not like the other?" Well, the last one, of course. What the last one has that the others do not is BEST value. Who would have ever thought OSD would be listed with these names? Not me, but I tell you what, I put OSD ahead of these when i recommend speakers from now on. These speakers are used for my Left and Right Channels in my home audio system. They are powered by an Onkyo receiver ~110 watts per channel. The overall sound output of these speakers are fantastic. They are a bit overpowering compared to the ICE670 speaker I use for my center channel, but was fixed after attenuation adjustments on my receiver. They are also mounted closer to the corner of my room, so this may contribute to the improved sound output directed to the seating position. I play music in all channel stereo mode as well, and these speakers just sound fantastic! They have well constructed frames, materials, and a neatly made crossover unit. They have a fierce sound, highs sound crisp and clean and mids are as smooth as they get. Mate them to a powered subwoofer to get the most from the overall sound because I do not get much for bass output with these speakers. If you do not have a subwoofer, it might be best to enclose them in their own enclosure with your installation as mine are only backed by insulation. Overall, they are the best sounding speaker from my purchase with OSD.
ProsEasy to Mount, Great Sound Quality, Good Power Output, Easy To Setup, Attractive Design
ConsWeak Bass

Put these speakers in as rear surrounds. Was worried about them sounding out of place because the ceiling is 10ft high, but they sound awesome! Having the speakers set at an angle makes a huge difference compared to normal in-ceiling speakers.
