Product code: ICE840WRS
This 8-inch in-ceiling, weather-resistant speaker pair is great for high-humidity areas, including outdoor patios, bathrooms and laundry rooms. With high power handling and an 8-inch polypropylene woofer in each, these speakers deliver superior sound that covers large spaces. The ICE840WRS 8-Inch Weather-Resistant Ceiling Speaker Pair works well with a CL3 in-wall rated speaker wire, which is designed to run inside walls.
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.
Compatible New Construction Bracket
The Speaker Grills are Aluminum and will not rust. I would suggest adding a dab of weatherproof silicone to the exposed head of the mounting screws of the Dog Ear mounting clamps after they have tightened and the grill has snapped in place. You also might consider putting a bead of the silicone on the backside of the frame, so you create a seal around the cutout hole.
