When you need the very best drop ceiling speakers, these 8-Inch angled ceiling speakers are a very smart choice. The ICE870 (left, center, right) speaker provides imaging and staging that would be lost with regular, down-firing ceiling speakers and is designed for high-end audio systems and larger home theater rooms or commercial spaces such as bars or restaurants. Audiophile features include an 8-inch carbon fiber woofer, 1-inch aluminum dome pivoting tweeter, and this high performance speaker can handle 150W of power. These drop ceiling speakers are designed to look as good as they sound and will complement various kinds of decor and room finishes, such as a wood floor, carpeted floor or stone floor.

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 Titanium Dome Tweeter
The job of the tweeter is to deliver the higher frequencies of music and soundtracks. The tweeter is also adjustable, meaning it can be aimed toward the listening area. This can make a big difference in sound quality especially for dialog and higher frequencies.

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.

joe L • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM does the pivoting tweeter allow further directionality of the speaker? Similar to the SpeakerCraft system?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Yes the pivoting tweeter does allow further directionality of the speaker. It allows you to aim the high frequencies to certain areas of the room
Stefan • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Has anyone tried to paint over these to match the ceiling better?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Stefan: All of our in-ceiling and in-wall speakers are paintable. Included in the box is a cutout template that also doubles as a paint shield that can be placed under the grill while you paint both the frame and grill together. Spray painting is recommended. TL
Matt • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I'm looking to install either 6.5" or 8" speakers in the celing tiles of a drop ceiling in my basement. Do I need to use a bracket or will the ceiling tile support the weight of the speaker?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Matt, The optional bracket would be great support for speaker in a drop ceiling. For the ICE870, we list the OSD-NCBC8-K. (Brackets are listed in the features and specs for each speaker) CL
Nick C • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Looking to install a 7.1 system in a 17.5 X 12.5 room. Can I use 6 of these for my surround sound or do you recommend a different configuration? Also I live in single story house and my ceiling is open to the roof with only insulation between will I have a problem with sound loss? Was thinking of using Mineral wool to try and block sound any luck with that?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Nick, These should work perfect for you application the angle allows you to place the speakers closer to the wall above the Monitor for the left and right assuming you have a different speaker for the center channel (you can use a ICE870 for center channel as well, we sell them as each). They also work well for surrounds again allowing to be placed closer to the side walls. the center surrounds should be mounted to the left and right of your seating area and the rear surrounds placed four to five feet behind the seating area with the pivoting tweeter aimed at the seating location. The Mineral wool would help in the ceiling as long as it would not be shedding. CL
Nick C • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Do these accept 12G speaker wire?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Nick: The push terminals will accept 12 Gauge. We do sell a 12/2 CL3 rated speaker wire as well. TL
