Features & Specifications

The OSD IWS25 In-Wall LCR (left, right, center) trimless speaker is an economical and space-saving option for adding left, center and right channels to a home theater or media room. With its architect trimless design this in-wall LCR speaker can be used as a center-channel speaker in a surround-sound stereo or as a right or left speaker in a high-end system and complete your design looks. Dual polypropylene woofers produce clear, full bass tones with smooth high-frequency roll-off, while the 1" silk dome tweeter gives you distortion-free sound on the high end. The IW525 is capable of handling up to 150 watts so it can be paired with robust sound systems, and it’s easy to install with the included template.

• Space-saving in-wall speaker with 150W of power handling
• Can be used as a left, right, or center speaker
• Dual polypropylene woofers for excellent low and mid-range frequencies
• 1” silk dome for clean and clean and clear high notes
• Easy to install with included template
• Paintable frame and grille blends with the design of any room

Installation Tips:
For optimal sound, separate speakers by six to 10 feet. Carefully plan the layout of your home theater system, as speaker installation requires that you cut a hole in your wall.

For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed


Other Product Info

I am purchasing these for my surround sound, can they be used as a single speaker in a separate room or do I need an actual stereo speaker for this application?
1 Answer
Hi Bob: The iw525 is a full range MTM speaker (Midrange, Tweeter, Midrange). We call this an LCR speaker since it typically a Center Channel speaker but works well for all three front stage speakers (left, center and right). The center channel would be mounted horizontally and vertically for the right and left speaker. These are sold as Each. Note your front speakers should be similar in design, same tweeters, and cone material and crossover components if possible. TL/5255

If I used 3 of these in the front for my LCR what would be a good pair of ceiling speakers to compliment them. The room is in my basement and is 11ft front to back and 15 ft wide. The rear ceiling speakers would be going in a soffit only 7 feet high right behind the seating area.

HI Steve: Your best speaker pair to match the IW525LCR speaker is the ACE670 and angled speaker that has a 15-degree angle and a pivoting tweeter that will pivot an additional 5-degrees (20% total). You want to be able to aim the tweeter towards your optimum viewing/listening location. It also matches the trim-less design of the IW525LCR. Are you limited to just a 5.1 system or can you add effects speakers between the seating area and the front stage speakers for Dolby ATMOS and DTS:X effects? The ACE670 work well for this application. It is all about aiming the tweeters. TL/5137

Hi. Do you have available this Center Channel Wall Speaker???
1 Answer
Hi Juan: We are phasing out all of our standard frame in-wall LCR speakers. I believe we will replace with a good and better version of Dual 5.25" LCR speakers and possible dual 6.5" with 1" tweeter all with new trim-less version. They should be in stock within the next 30 days. Note: You can still call customer service for B stock IW525 and check on a possible grill. TL/5093

If I use 3 of these (IW525) for the LCR what in ceiling speakers would compliment them. The basement area where I’m using them is 11ft front to back and 15ft wide. The in ceiling speakers will be installed in a soffit only 7 ft high behind the seating area. Thank you

Hi Steve: I am sorry you had to submit the question a second time before I responded to your first question... Hopefully, you will check out our ACE670 for your surrounds and maybe you can add a second pair for the DOLBY ATMOS effects speakers if you have one of the newer 7.2 Audio Video Receivers. It makes a huge difference and the angled speakers provide for maximum flexibility for speaker placement. Its all about being to aim the tweeter at your optimum listening/viewing area. TL/5139

I have plaster walls - cutout is no problem, but the wall is 2" thick. would this work? Thanks.
1 Answer
Hi Deborah, The dog-ear clamps on this in-wall speaker have a 1½-inch clearance. You could take the time to notch out the plaster where the six ears need to swing out and tighten. You could also remove the dog-ear post and screw the speaker directly into the plaster. Either way, it would take considerable time to modify the wall or the frame. Modifying the frame would void the warranty and possibility of returning the unit as well. TL/MA #1688

from Laurel asked:
February 14, 2013
I have an opening of 5 inches in height, length and death is not an issue. Will the speakers them selves fit in that opening. I have no way and cannot cut it out more than 5.
1 Answer
Hi Dwayne, The cut-out diameter on the IW525 in-wall center channel speaker is 15-1/4" x 6 7/8" with a mounting depth of 3 1/2". Therefore, this model speaker will not be a good fit for your application. As an alternative, we suggest installing three angled speakers for your center, left and right in the ceiling for your front stage. Take a look at the ICE630 angled ceiling speaker in the same series. We also have a lot of helpful information in our home theater learning section: CL/MA 1636

Can this speaker be installed on a sloped (cathedral ceiling)? I am trying to determine what speaker to use as my center speaker, this speaker will be over the TV, with the couch on the opposite wall. Thanks for the help.
1 Answer
Hi Willie, The OSD IW525 center channel can be used for your application. If you haven’t selected your front left and right speakers, we suggest our the ICE630 angled speaker which gives you 15 degrees on its own with the angled frame of the speaker; plus the pivoting tweeter angles 15 degrees. This way you can direct the sound directly at your listening area. CL/MA 1478
