Lifetime Tech Support

This 6.5-inch in-ceiling, weather-resistant speaker pair is great for high-humidity areas, including outdoor patios, bathrooms, kitchens, and laundry rooms. Great for covered porches & patios as well! With high power handling and an 6.5-inch polypropylene woofer in each, these speakers deliver superior sound that covers large spaces. With swivel tweeter adjustment, you can easily create sweet spot for your listening area. Better crossover, tweeter and woofer materials add sound quality. The aluminum grill cover is rust-resistant for wet application. These weather-resistant indoor/ outdoor in-ceiling speakers work well with a CL3 in-wall rated speaker wire, which is designed to run inside walls.

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. 

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.

8 Questions asked on 6.5" 150W Weather Resistant Outdoor In-Ceiling Speaker w/ Built-in Crossover, Pair - ICE640WRS

Cody • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Is the grill and trim paintable?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Cody: Yes they are, there is also a template that works as a combination cutout template or paint shield included in the package. There is also a cloth attached to the inside of the Grill that needs to be removed after you paint the grill. It would be considered part of the paint shield to be removed if you do paint the grill (but remove after you paint as I said). You may also want to use an exterior paint if it for outside use.

Alex • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I bought the NCCB6-K speaker rough in brackets. Will that work with these speakers.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Alex: The latest version of the NCCB6-K is 7 3/4" which the same cutout as the ICE640 WRS. But confirm the measurement of the bracket you have. If it is also 7 3/4" it will work. TL/4870
Bryan • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Do these need an enclosure to be mounted for sound or are they free air speakers?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Bryan: These speakers feature Infinite Baffle design which means it will adapt to almost any size enclosure. You do not want to have two speakers sharing the same cavity so at least make sure the two speakers are isolated from each other with something like a fire break. TL/5034
Tom C • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Can these be wall mounted or are they only for ceilings? I'm looking for in wall speakers for a screened porch. No direct weather exposure, but it does get humid here.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Tom: Why not, the only difference is the In-wall speaker is rectangular or square versus round. The 3.5" clearance needed inside a studded wall is covered. The ICE640WRS is listed at 4" depth but you have to deduct for the 1/2" to 5/8" for the sheetrock or wallboard depth. We also feature weatherproof speakers that are only 2.75" total depth and feature a square grill option. Check out the OSD Audio Premium site for the R62SM (shallow mount) and SQ6 square mount kit.

A Thank you. Are any of your interior speakers rated for this application, or would you recommend staying with the outdoor line?
