On sale while supplies last. A very popular single speaker for home theaters and whole house audio, ICE640TT in-ceiling speaker includes a 6 1/2" polypropylene woofer with butyl rubber surround, dual 3/4" silk dome tweeters for smooth vocals, and 150W power handling. This single in-ceiling speaker uses dual 16 ohm voice coils and includes a switch for 16 ohm stereo operation or 8 ohm mono bridged setup.
Why Dual Voice Coils?
The beauty of the DVC design is that it allows you to connect both a left and right stereo signal. This makes it an excellent choice for locations with room for only a single speaker (i.e., bathrooms, narrow hallways or even a walk-in closet). Once both voice coils are connected, the stereo signal is summed into a single mono stereo full range output. In addition, dual tweeters doubles the dispersion pattern of the high frequencies, creating a broader 360-degree sound field. Add this to the overall sound quality of the Kevlar Woofer and you have one heck of a great sounding speaker!
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.
Do I need 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.
