Lifetime Tech Support

The unique design of the ICE660 LCR speaker positions the 6.5" woofer at a 15 degree angle, which creates a more realistic sound stage when front surrounds are installed closer to the wall or right above the monitor. It is by natural the best setup for Dolby Atmos® firing down solution. Not only is this speaker affordable, it offers customers with smaller or odd shaped rooms more placement flexibility to optimize their home theater experience. The critical high and mid-range frequencies are pointed toward the listener, not the floor, so when your video tracks left to right, the sound tracks right along with the video. You can even use them for rear and side surrounds in a 5.1 or 7.1 system.

What Are the Benefits of an Angled In-Ceiling Speaker?
The angled speaker is a real problem solver because not every space is ideal for custom home theater sound applications. The angled in-ceiling speaker features a 15° angle for the mid bass driver plus a pivoting tweeter for placement flexibility. This speaker can be part of three piece set to handle the front stage of the surround system when both on-wall and in-wall are not a favorable option. The angled design allows the ideal placement in the ceiling closer to the wall just above the monitor. This creates a more realistic sound image when compared to normal in-ceiling speakers that are mounted closer to directly above the viewing area. Standard in-ceiling speakers are generally placed at least three feet from the wall to avoid reflective sound. The angle speaker can be placed within a foot of the wall.

Pivoting Silk Dome Tweeter
The pivoting silk dome tweeter generates abundant detail and clarity, projecting a solid and focused image for all sources. Pivoting design means the tweeter can be aimed for a spacious sound stage.

How Does this Speaker Mount in the Ceiling?
Customers often ask us if they need special installation mounting brackets on their OSD ceiling speakers. The answer is no and here’s why. All our in-ceiling speakers feature a dog leg (L-shaped) mounting system that is part of the frame. Before you install the speakers, remove the grille and you’ll see several the mounting screws near the front frame. These screws need to be loosened to activate the dog leg clamps. Use a screwdriver to loosen (turn to the left) these screws and the clamp will come loose. When the speaker is in position in the ceiling, tighten (turn to the right) the screw and the speaker will be secured to the ceiling.

What Type of Speaker Wire and What Gauge?
Wiring is not included with in-ceiling speakers so you will have to purchase some. We recommend our OSD Audio CL3/FT4 cable that is UL (fire) rated for in-wall and outdoor speaker installs. This type of 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. As for the gauge, for runs up to 100 feet for background music, 16-gauge will be fine. If the run is approaching or exceeding 100 feet, we suggest 14-gauge wire. 

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.

Testing the Sound Quality of In-Ceiling Speakers
Many customers like to test the sound quality of their new OSD Audio in-ceiling speakers before they install them. Keep in mind, however, that these flush-mount speakers are designed to be used in the wall or ceiling. Uninstalled in-wall/in-ceiling speakers will sound weak and tinny because without the proper enclosure (in this case your house wall) the speaker can’t produce the sound pressure level it needs. If you want to try them out, we recommend mounting the in-ceiling speakers into a box of about 3 cubic ft. or larger; or simply mount them in the ceiling and then listen. This will give you an accurate measure of the sound quality.

For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.

13 Questions asked on 6.5" Angled Flush LCR In-Ceiling Speaker, Dolby Atmos® Ready & Pivoting Tweeter, Single - ICE660

John • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q The speaker connectors, do they require banana plugs and if they do or, what type would be required?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A John This would be a bare wire screw type connection. Customers often put banana plugs like the OSD-HB-002 on the other end of the speaker cable, with a wall plate like the OSD-WP8 where your amp or receiver is located. CL/MA
Randy • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Will these fit in a 8.5 inch cutout? If I use this as a center speaker in a 5.1 set up, what should I pair it with for front and back sets?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Randy, The ICE660 LCR ceiling speaker has a cut-out diameter that measures 8 1/8" inches. When using the ICE660 as a center channel, customers typically install two more ICE660s for a first-rate front stage, (center and left and right). Add a pair of ICE640s for the rear channel and you'll have an excellent 5.1 surround sound speaker system. CL/MA 1749
Rick • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Can they be installed in direct contact with insullation?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Rick, They are designed for open-air installations, but if you want to be safe, you can install a speaker insulation protector such as the one here: http://www.parts-express.com/pro-wire-isf-147-insu-flate-ceiling-speaker-protector--300-265 -BM 2351
Rick • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Can these speakers be used for all 7.1 or do I have to pair them with something else
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Rick, Yes. These are sold as a single speaker just for that purpose! You can run 3 upfront as your center and left/right, two as the surround, and two as the back. Just make sure they're all installed so that the angles are directed at your primary listening area. Let us know if you have any follow up questions. Thanks! -BM 2366
Dennis Moore • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I just purchased 5 of the ICE660 for my 5.1 install, in a bit of an odd configured room, and not visually satisfying to my spouse for my nice Polk Audio speakers attached to the wall/ceiling, so going with the angled in-ceiling ICE660 OSD speakers. Understand, the speakers should be pointed toward the listening area and should be 6-10 feet apart. What about the distance btwn the center and L and R speakers? [I can see the L and R speakers, say 8 feet apart, and center splitting the diff, at 4 feet??]
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Dennis, Yes that is a good amount of distance for your front LCR set up. The important part is that the front speakers are equal distance from the listening area. CS 2532
