Features & Specifications

For rooms larger than 140 sq. ft., an 8" in-ceiling speaker is an excellent choice. These high-powered models are built to fill larger spaces and include high fidelity components. The Pro Series is perfect for customers who expect excellent sound but want to watch their budgets. Sold in pairs, the Pro ICE840 in-ceiling speakers can be installed in home theaters and the low price tag allows many of our customers to install these in-ceiling speakers throughout the house. The 8” cone delivers excellent frequency response (i.e., the range of musical tones a speaker can produce); plus, bass response or the ability to crank out low notes, is superb.

Enjoy High-end audio at an Amazing Price
Other features of the ICE840 found on competing speakers costing twice, even three times more include a polypropylene woofer with rubber surround and pivoting 1” adjustable silk tweeter for very smooth vocals. This in-ceiling speaker performs brilliantly in large spaces and also includes a gold-plated compression posts, a sophisticated crossover for clear channel separation and a heavy magnet to improve bass and sensitivity. Take a look at the reviews. We sell a lot of in-ceiling speakers and are able to offer these speakers at a price you won't find anywhere else.

What do dog ear brackets do?
Customers typically purchase OSD Audio ceiling speakers for new construction or retrofit. In new construction, studs or joists are exposed and sheet rock or ceiling tiles have not been installed. Retrofit refers to speakers installed into existing rooms. In retrofit construction, customers will use the dog ear clamps (sometimes referred to as retrofit brackets) that are included in the frames of all OSD Audio ceiling speakers. Once you are ready to install the speakers, after the ceiling has been installed and your hole has been cut, remove the grill so you have access to the four mounting screws that activate the dog ears. In new construction, a mounting bracket is often used although it is not required when you purchase our ceiling speakers. The two advantages for using brackets are: 1) you can determine the exact placement of the speaker while providing a template to cut the mounting hole; and 2) mounting brackets provide additional support. If you do not want to use mounting brackets, you can you can put up the drywall or ceiling, cut the hole and use the dog ear clamps to secure the speakers. (Note: the dog ears are also used in conjunction with the new construction brackets.)


For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

6 Questions & 6 Answers
Geoffrey
from Lehi, UT asked:
October 27, 2017
This may appear to be a basic question, but how do you remove the grills? All the speakers I ordered came with the grills pre-installed and the none of the instructions that came with the speakers provided any instruction on removing the grills. Thanks.
1 Answers
Hi Geoffrey: Most of the speakers are shipped with a dedicated grill pulling tool that looks like a paper clip that has been stretched out to form a ring on ones ens and a small 90 degree bend at the other. The bend fits into the holes of the grill allowing you to pull the grill away from the frame. Another way to remove the grill is to take the speaker in your two hands and alternate your hands back and forth. You will note the grill will flex enough to allow you to slowly push the grill out from the slot around the speaker. Just do it slowly side to side. TL/4613

Is 175 watts the max power per speaker or the rms power per speaker?
1 Answers
Hi Joe: I am thinking to be on the safe side these are 125 watts RMS with peak of 175 per channel (each speaker). TL/4567

Nick
from Idaho Falls, Idaho asked:
November 7, 2016
For New Construction would I need to use a box to place the speaker in if it will be in a ceiling that will have blown in insulation placed after the drywall is finished?
1 Answers
HI Nick: It would be a good idea to build an enclosure for each speaker especially if you have the access during pre construction phase. You might also want to utilize our New Construction bracket, the NCCB8. This will help make sure to line up the speaker with your enclosure. The enclosure can consist of a back board and two sides. I am thinking about 12"x 17" for the backboard. Maybe use a little Silicon to seal the enclosure. You will also be able to tune it by adding fiber fill (like the material they sell for pillows at a craft store). The fill will make the speaker think it is in a larger enclosure. Typically in-ceiling speakers with open back feature a woofer that works in an infinite baffle so it adapts to whatever size enclosure it is installed in. Your application is more for protection of the back of the driver. Good luck TL/4117

Can these be used outside under a patio? The patio is covered and water is not an issue. Just curious because it does get hot and humid during the summer time.
1 Answers
Hi Quincy: Yes, you can mount these under a covered patio. You will want to use a little silicone around the back of the frame to help seal them to the edges of the cutout hole. Good Luck TL/3746

what size of receiver is needed for these speakers. I will only be using these two speakers for the receiver
1 Answers
Hi Preston, A basic receiver with a 100-watts per channel like the Sherwood RX4105 would drive a pair of ICE840s very nicely. CL/MA 1892

Are these suitable for installation in the ceiling of an outdoor patio near a pool?
1 Answers
Hi Scott, You can install the ICE840s in a covered patio. During installation, we recommend using a ring of silicone around the trim that goes against the wall; this prevents water from getting behind the speaker. CL/MA 1432

Beat the Name Brands
We moved into our house which already had name brand ceiling speakers but not in many of the rooms. Purchased 2x840 and 2x640 and they sound great!!! Even my wife and daughters commented on the rich and authentic sound from these speakers but not a word about the other speakers already in the house. I will definitely be adding more speakers from OSD - incredible quality and value.
Prosrich full authentic sound and very easy to install
ConsNot enough of them in our house

General Speakers
As general speakers installed around the house, these are such good value for money it's unbelievable, so glad I found OSD on the net & went with my instincts after much research of other speakers as well. A very satisfied customer... thanks boys & girls for your effort !!! (I also purchased 2 x sets of the MK850's for the theatre room ... excellent too)
ProsThe speaker grill "removal device" (Thin strong spring steel puller). The easy flip out holder tabs. Kevlar dome makes them last forever .... providing the coils don't pack up !!!
Consout of 3 sets of speakers two of the flip out tab screw heads stripped using a battery screw driver ... was unable to tighten right up.
Best UsesMusic plays throughout the house without turning the amp up, when you're at the other end of the house !!!

Garage Installation - ICE840
I have installed a pair of these in a large 2-car garage with finished walls and ceiling. The installation was easy and the sound quality for the space was better than expected. I push 100 watts per channel and they seem to produce well in all ranges. Probably notice more base with more power but no complaints. Customer service was exceptional and helped with my selection. I wanted to buy four for the space and they talked me out of it. Great overall experiance!
ProsEasy to install, good value, solid wire connections, excellent sound quality.

Great speakers at a great price
We were moving and I had several pairs of high-end SpeakerCraft in-ceiling speakers ($1000/pair) that I wanted to take with me. So I searched for "cheap" speakers to replace them with that would fit the existing holes. The ICE 840s fit the bill - the right size and unbelievably inexpensive. But let me tell you there is nothing "cheap" about their build quality or sound. They give my SpeakerCraft systems a run for their money. They are 1/10th the price and I would say about 90% as good sound quality...just maybe missing a slight bit on the bass end. All in all I replaced about $4000 of extremely high end equipment for about $500 and only an audiophile would be able to tell the difference.

Awesome Sound!!!
I just installed the ICE840 8" speakers in my living room. The only thing that I would complain about is the 4 dog ear brackets could use a better design. When I was installing these speakers one dog ear on each speaker didn't release from the top. I would recommend you to cycle the screws through the dog ears before installing. The sound on these speaker are incredible! I can not tell the difference between these speakers and the high dollars speakers that I listen to at best buy. Don't waste your money on those expensive speakers.

Very Happy with the entire experience
Great shopping experience. Quick delivery and easy installation. Sounds great. The only con was the mounting screws misaligned but that was easily fixed by simply running the screws all the way through the plastic first before mounting.

Excellent value. Speakers sound very good. Exceptional bass and good tremble. The room I built is right at 230 square feet. The 8" speakers are too large for the room, 6" would have been adequate and saved me even more. Installation could not be simpler.

I was concerned that maybe the reviews were not real. I was very surprised at the low cost of the 4 speakers I purchased. I thought if they don't sound good then I'll use them in the basement and get a good pair for the family room. No need. They sound great. I have only had them hooked up for about 5 days but have already enjoyed several movies. I hope the durability is as good as the sound. They were very easy to install. I was concerned that I might have to mount brackets and then mount the speakers to them but they easily mounted directly into the sheetrock. They look great and sound great. I will be buying the in-wall speakers next for my basement. I hope they sound as good as my in-ceiling speakers.

Ordering was easy, everything arrived as stated. (I like that you notify of shipment and tracing info if needed) Installation was so simple a child could do it. ATC8Ís sound phenomenal. I was concerned about having enough bass and my fear was unfounded. The bass and treble are superb, after installing and testing these speakers out I realized I could have utilized the 6î but I have no regrets. Thank you for the excellent service and product. I will purchase more of the same in the future and everyone that has listened has been floored by the sound.

I had a bid from my local Boulder high end retailer. They wanted $400 bucks a pair for speakers. I bought 6 pair of the Phoenix Gold for $89 . The installers were here yesterday for the labor only install, and they were looking at the spec sheet for the PG speakers. The performance numbers were better than the product they were going to sell me. I saved $311 a pair x 6. Thanks for the flat screen Tv the difference paid for. The house rocks. Thanks

I ordered 9 pairs of Phoenix Gold wall, ceiling, patio speakers, a speaker selector and volume controls over the Web after some initial consultation over the phone. The staff was friendly and helpful. The order was shipped promptly after receiving order and shipping confirmations, except for the speaker selector (a Russound PRO-12HP) which was not in stock and had to be drop shipped from the manufacturer. For the price, the speakers are very hard to beat. The the build quality is good, sound quality is very good, and I used the money I saved to buy a new receiver. I would not hesitate to order from them again.
