I have an 8 ohm receiver and I purchased two speakers. Is this the correct wiring pattern? These are two on my rear porch in the ceiling.
1 Answer
Hi Brandon: Thank you for the drawing. I am not sure if that is the proper way since you are crossing your right and left connections. I am assuming you have the two speakers far apart and are not worried about stereo separation. I am thinking; you have already installed the speakers and run a two conductor wire between the two speakers. What Receiver are you using? Will it do a 4-ohm load if we connect both speakers in parallel (this would take a four conductor or two two conductor cables to wire in parallel). Do you have a Mono stereo switch on your Receiver? If we were able to convert the output signal to Mono and switching the speakers to our step up 8-inch ICE840 WRS weatherproof outdoor speakers ($99.00 a pair). If you can not switch to mono on your receiver, I would suggest adding our Pre One Preamplifier with a stereo-mono switch. I will send you diagrams and additional email in a sperate email. My email is Note there is 30-day performance guarantee on the ICE800TT WRS. Let me know about the Receiver/Source and how far apart are the speakers? TL/5368

If I use a 2 channel amp connected to the ICE800TTWRS and then further connect (in parallel) an AP670's off each side of the ICE800TTWRS, I have 3 questions: 1) Will my AMP experience a 4ohm load? 2) Will my AP 670's keep their stereo separation? 3) Would Volume levels at the AP670 be impacted by this setup. See diagram for clarity.
1 Answer
HI Brian Good questions; 1) Yes, the Amplifier will see a 4-ohm load 2) They should keep their stereo separation if you are concerned then you might run a four conductor speaker wire to each input for the ICE800TTWRS and terminate two of the conductors to one of the input connections. Then take the remaining two conductors and extend them to each AP670 with a new Two conductor speaker cable. You would terminate the two sets of four conductor cable directly to the right and left output of the Amplifier. This connection would become your parallel connecting point. 3) Both the AP670 and ICE800TTWRS have similar specs; I would assume your performance level would be affected by the quality of the Power Amplifier you are using. Our AMP300 and AMP200 would have no problem with a 4-ohm load since they are High Current Amplifiers that are 2-ohm stable. TL/5327

I have two of these hooked up currently. Unfortunately I only hooked up one side of each of these speakers and now I’m regretting it. Unfortunately it was a huge pain in neck to run the wire and I just can’t do it again. My question is can I run a two wire cable from one speaker to the other, like a jumper cable? Would that work?
1 Answer
Hi Dave: A tricky problem, first will need to know what amplifier you are connected to and if it can be bridged mono? You might be able to get away wiring these in series-parallel but will need to know if you can have abridged mono output so you are connecting only the 2 positives from your amp's speaker A, Of course, the amp has to have stereo/Bridged mono switch and be labeled on the output side in order for this to work. Please let me know so I can supply you with a diagram how to wire it. You need four connections for this to work and you have 2 connections per speaker. And it will involve running the additional wire between the two speakers while utilizing the current two conductor cable you already have. TL/5027

I am looking for 8" stereo speakers and the ICE840TT is currently out of stock and this speaker seems to be the same but it is weather proof? I really don't want the trimless so I didn't want to go with the ACE840TT. I was just worried that the sound quality would not be as good as the indoor rated.

Hello, What is the RMS watt power for this speaker? is 150 watts Max Power or RMS? also, can it take 2 4ohm channels to equal 8 ? Can the Tweeters pivot? Thanks,
1 Answer
HI Erlin: The speaker is rated at 150 Watts Peak 75 watts peak. I not sure there is a 4 ohm output on an amplifier or Receiver. It may be 8 ohm typically but have the ability to go to 4 or even 2 ohm. But it depends on the load you apply and in this case the speaker is a dual voice coil speaker that when connected to your amplifier it will show a 8 ohm load. So no problem. Note your amplifier may show a 4 ohm load and list an 8 ohm load which maybe half the power. These speaker at 8 ohm speakers would put less demand and only draw half the power than your rated 4 ohm spec. TL/4499

from Siler City, North Carolina asked:
December 28, 2014
I have a master bath (spkr 1 & 2) and a Master Bedroom (spkr 3 & 4) that have both been pre-wired for sound. The two speakers in the master bath can be wired in parallel or in series as I have stereo running to each and two speaker cables running between speaker 1&2. Goal #1 I would like to have stereo sound out of both speaker 1 and speaker 2. I’d like to use: ICE800TTWRS for these as the speakers are weather resistant and can be wired so both produce stereo out of a single speaker. I also like the fact that they are 8” cones so I may be able to get better base response. Goal #2 I would like to have 3 & 4 start life as stereo speakers over the bed, but then become rear surround sound speakers at a later date. Goal #3 I would like to run 1,2,3,4 off of a single amp to start. I would then like to have that amp become just the bathroom amp when I get a surround sound receiver. Questions: 1) Would AMP120 be able to run 1&2 in parallel at 4 ohms and 3&4 in stereo at 8 ohms simultaneously? 2) Does AMP 120 have enough power to push the 8” cones to drive some low end? 3) Should I go with the ICE800TTWRS for 3&4 in the master bedroom or is there another / better option for my goals of good stereo sound today and good surround sound speakers in the future Thanks! Mike P.
1 Answer
Question # 1) Would AMP120 be able to run 1&2 in parallel at 4 ohms and 3&4 in stereo at 8 ohms simultaneously? Answer: No the AMP120 would only allow you to play speaker A or B and would have a problem playing just the two Stereo/Mono speakers from the Master Bathroom. Question #2) Does AMP 120 have enough power to push the 8” cones to drive some low end? Answer: This Amplifier is meant to play at 8 ohms and typically does not supply the current to power the bass response you are looking for either zone. Checkout the AMP200 which would be a better fit for your application and can also be used for your surround channels in the future. The AMP200 is a High Current Amplifier that is stable down to 2 ohms and could handle two stereo speakers from the bathroom as well as the stereo pair in the master Bedroom (which would produce around a 3.6 ohm load). The AMP200 would also be able have plenty of output power for your lower frequencies. As far as surround channels when you select a AVR (audio Video Receiver) you will want to make sure it has pre amp outs for your surround channels so you can connect it to input #1 of the AMP200. I would also look for an AVR with a second zone pre amp out which would connect to Input #2 on the AMP200. Now Line 1 input would take priority when the AVR is playing surround sound until it is turned off then Line #2 is enabled and can play your background music through either the Master Bathroom or Master Bedroom or both. The only change you will make will be to switch the source from the AMP200 to the AVR. We can help you with that when it is time. Question #3) Should I go with the ICE800TTWRS for 3&4 in the master bedroom or is there another / better option for my goals of good stereo sound today and good surround sound speakers in the future Answer: I would recommend the ICE840TT (also weather resistant) as a better choice because it allows you to connect the two speakers as either two Summed Mon/stereo speakers or as a stereo pair. The speaker features better components as well as a true crossover and the 8ohm/16ohm dual application switch. In the 16 ohm setting you connect both voice coils on the speakers and connect both four conductors from the two speakers to Speaker A Output (left and right) of the AMP200. You can also see if the speakers might sound better connected as a stereo pair. To accomplish this you connect only two conductors of the four to one voice coil of each speaker then connect one speaker to right and the other to the left. In the Master Bedroom I would recommend using a ICE840 eight inch 2 way speaker with Pivoting 1" Tweeter. This would work for both application and also be an eight inch with more base response. Plus if you connect it as I suggested the speaker will play surround information plus still be used for background music, a win, win. I hope that helps... Good Luck TL/3074

I have purchased two of these. When I pulled them out of the box I realized that there are 4 inputs which I did not realize thats what dual tweeter speakers would do. I only have 4 spots left on my amp, which is two rights and two lefts. Do I just hook up to one set of inputs on each new speaker? Is there a way to run a jumper wire for each new speaker? Should I just get single tweeter speakers? Also if I have 2 of these plus 1 of the omni subs, plus two omni planters, what size amp do I really need? Thanks for all your help!
1 Answer
Hi David: The AMP200 would work best for your application. I would exchange the ICE-800TT WRS for the ICE-800 WRS stereo pair. You can run the speaker A to the ICE-800 WRS pair and then connect Speaker B to the four input conductors of the OMNI Sub 200 then connect the two OMNI Planters speakers to the two outputs (each a two conductor red and black cable) of the OMNI 200 sub. That would the best setup. You would have on off capability on the amp front panel; speaker A or Speaker B, played individually or at the same time. You can run the OMNI SUB 200 with the ICE-800 WRS rather than the Planters, your call. TL/4336

Please help! I'm not that great at this, so this may sound like a dumb question. I just bought two of these and went to install and noticed they have 4 inputs, hence the dual voice. My amp has 4 spots total so two wires running to each speaker. Can I just hook up one pair to each speaker or do all 4 inputs need to be used?? Can I use a wire to connect the two inputs on the speaker, like a jumper? Or should I just get the single voice coil to make it easier! Thanks!
1 Answer
Hi Dave: Good questions, the ICE-800TT WRS is a Dual Voice Coil summed Mono stereo speaker that is used for applications where you only have a single speaker location but a stereo signal (4 conductor right & left +/-) coming to the location. The speaker takes the two signals and sums them into a full range signal. Ideal for bathrooms, Hallways and small rooms like a walk in closet. You can use these as pair and both will be full range. The limitation is the amplifier you have for your source. If you have an amplifier that can run a speaker A and B at the same time then you can wire both speaker together in parallel. Two options, first run a four conductor cable to the first speaker and connect both inputs/voice coils. Then from the same input take another four conductor and run it to the second speaker and connect both inputs. And just connect to speaker A at your amplifier/Receiver. Second option is to run a four conductor cable to each speaker one from speaker A and the second from Speaker B. It would help if you could let me know more of what you are trying to do and what components you have (Brand and model number help). My email is You do have an option of returning the ICE-800TT WRS in exchange for the ICE-800 WRS stereo pair with the single input. Good Luck TL/4333

What is the maximum ceiling material thickness these will mount in? I'm hoping to use these on a tiled ceiling, and would therefore need to mount to about a 1" ceiling thickness.
1 Answer
Hi Ryan: The dog ear brackets measure 1 3/8" from landing pad to frame. 1" ceiling tiles are actually less than a full inch. We have a showroom filled with speakers mounted to drop down ceiling tiles. There is also a trick to mounting the ceiling tiles where you actually place an 2" x 3" x 1/8" thick piece of scrap wood under each dog ear so the landing pad has a broader more stable base to sandwich between the tile and frame. So you should not have any problem with depth. TL/3904

I have 6 of these speakers installed on my 1200 sq ft wrap around porch. What amp do I need to run them all? Thanks Brian
1 Answer
Hi Brian: Two options will work for you, one is our MX-1260; a 12 channel, six zone power amplifier which you can connect a stereo amplifier to each Dual Voice Coil speaker that you have. It feature two universal buss inputs and you can add optional volume control in line for each zone as well. There will be no need to have Impedance Matching Volume controls since each dedicated zone will see an 8 ohm load for the ICE-800 TT WRS connected to it (x6). The other option would be our High Current Power Amplifier the AMP300 combined with our SSVC6D a six zone speaker selector featuring internal impedance matching volume control per each zone. This will allow you to turn any one of the six speakers/zones on/off or turn down the volume levels for each individual speaker. I am assuming you do not have Volume controls already in your system. If you do than option two (AMP300) with a ISS6 Speaker Selector without Internal Volume controls would work. In both cases I think the Option 2 gives you more control. Let us know what you think...

Is the grille and bezel paintable? I have a dark brown/bronze ceiling and would love to paint them to blend in. Chris
1 Answer
Hi Chris: The WRS series speakers feature Paintable Grills and Frame. The speakers come with a Cut-out Template that doubles as a paint shield It covers over the Bezel and speaker when you are painting the frame. You can paint both with a paint with the exact matching paint or you can try to color match with a can of spray paint. You will want to use a fine spray can that features a fine mist. Also you will notice a cloth covering the inside of the grill that faces the speaker. It will usually take a couple of coats to paint the grill after which you need to remove the cloth and throw it away. This is of course if you paint it your self, otherwise consult a professional painter who should have no problem painting both the grill and frame. Good luck TL/3722

1 Answer
Hi Mark, That would power the 2nd tweeter, but you'd still be hearing only one channel, not full stereo. You need both channels from the amp wired to the speaker to actually hear stereo. Certain sounds are recorded for the left channel while others are recorded for the right channel, thus you would be missing out on a lot of specific sounds. With your wire scheme, you would want the standard ICE800WRS which come as pairs. See link below: BM 2638

I also have another two that will be installed inside a small workshop area with the same distance between. There is electrical wiring from a series of can lights near each speaker location. Will this affect the quality of sound? The wiring can be moved only slightly. If the quality is affected does, would placing the speaker wiring in conduit help? Also, what size amplifier should I get to run these? Finally, can I use these speakers to run TV sound through? A wall mounted TV will be nearby. Tom
1 Answer
Hi Tom, The electrical wiring can start producing interference with the speaker wires if they are running along side with each other around 25 feet. The best form of action is to keep them as far apart as possible. Also keeping the distance of each wire run as short as possible. The AMP120 would be a great amp to power these speakers.

I wanted to hook two of these speakers up along with two single rock speakers to a Sony reciever for my out door music. I would like to have one volume control for the two in ceiling speaker and one for the two rock speakers. What speaker selector and outdoor volume controls would you recommed? Would I run the speakers in parallel? What do you recommend?

Hi Ty, You are asking about two single stereo speakers summed mono (the ICE800WRS) and two other single speakers, which I am assuming are also single stereo speakers that feature dual voice coil right and left inputs (like the ICE800WRS). If this is true, you’ll want to use our OVC-300 and wire the two existing speakers in parallel to the volume control (four conductors from each speaker spliced together with the four conductors from the output of the speaker selector). Then use four conductor back to the amplifier from the two Volume controls parallel into the single output of the receiver or run one volume control off of speaker A and one volume control off of speaker B. In both cases the impedance-matching setting for both volume controls would be 4x. If your two single speakers are meant to be connected as a pair (right and left single input), then connect that through a single OVC300 and connect the same way to the Sony receiver. The setting would still be 4x for both volume controls. I hope that helps and please do not hesitate to ask additional questions. Good luck! TL/MA

If i am using these speakers with your impedance matching volume control, can I hook 4 of these speakers to a single volume controller?
1 Answer
Hi Michael: We need a little more info, technically you would need at least two Volume Controls both set to 4X and connect both Voice coils of all four speakers. How big is your area, how protected (assuming it is an outdoor patio) are the speakers from the elements. Is it important to use single stereo speakers.. Please let me know so I can assist you further. TL

Hi Salvador: That is pretty good size area. Considering theoverall patio cover area with no knowledge where your Fireplace and TV will actaully be placed under the overhang I would recommend the otimum of 6 each of the ICE800TTWRS connected with our ISS6 Speaker Selector. I would power them with our AMP200 which features Automatic Source switching between two independent sources. You could choose between the audio of the TV or an iPod or MP3 player as asecond source. Placement of the speakers would be a minimun of three feet from any wall area/surface to avoid reflections. Roughly I would place the first speaker three feet from the house wall and four feet in from the side. Then the second speaker six feet out or 9 feet from the house wall. Duplicate the two speakers on the opposite end. The two middle speakers will be placed the same distance from the house wall exactly the same distance from the two sides (13 feet). I am assuming the 27 feet is running the length of the house and 14 feet from the house wall. This would be the optimum coverage. You could get away with four of these speakers and a smaller speaker selector if more budget minded. These Stereo speakers are nice allowing a more fuller sound from each speaker versus worrying about right and left stereo seperation depending on where your are seated or standing for any length of time. You also need to take into consideration where the seating is and where other obstructions like the fireplace maybe located. Note can supply with everything you need to do the job including CL3 rated spesaker wire. Please feel free to contact us for further clarification. TL

Can you use two on patio or only one because it's stereo ? What else would be good outdoor covered patio with rock speakers?
1 Answer
The choices depend on your source or amplification. These are a dual voice coil stereo speaker meant to connect to the right and left output of a stereo zone. If you’re using a High Current Amplifier (like our OSD AMP200), you can connect two or three of these speakers off a single A or B output. If you are connecting to a typical receiver or amplifier rated at 8 ohm output, you are limited to a single speaker if you have only one output available. If you have both A and B available from your source, you can connect a speaker to A and a second speaker to B. You can also add an impedance-matching volume control (like our OVC100 outdoor impedance matching volume control) in line from your source to your speakers, allowing you to connect two ICE880TT in parallel to a single output. This insures the amplifier/receiver sees an 8 ohm load and also gives you the ability to control your volume levels locally. In-ceiling speakers are typically used for background music where stereo separation is not important. The stereo versions were created for applications where a single location was the only option. However, due to their dual tweeter design with broader sound dispersion and full range sound, it has become more popular to use two stereo speakers instead of a stereo pair. We also offer a stereo speaker in both our Patio and Rock speakers as well. TL/MA
