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

Chefjim51 • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Can these be used on a pontoon boat?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi: The ICE640WRS will work if you have some sort of enclosure to mount them into. Or you can look at something like our AP650 Patio speaker with its unique mounting system. The question is regarding the amplifier/Headunit which you might be using which may want to see a 4-ohm speaker (all car audio/marine speakers are typically 4 ohms). They play louder than the 8 ohm speakers. So check out marine speakers before you decide. TL/5134
Jeremy • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Is the 150 watts  power rating that is listed continuous or peak ?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Jeremy:The power rating worse case is 75 to 100 watts Continous with a peak of 150 watts, but you may want to consider the other specifications when making a decision. Like Impedance, these are 8-ohm so you can connect two pair in parallel for a 4-ohm load at the amplifier. Sensitivity is also essential; these are rated at 90dB (anything above 90dB is very efficient) meaning they take less power to achieve full output. Last you want to check Frequency Response; these rate at 40Hz to 20kHz, the 40Hz is suitable for a 6.5" speaker, the ICE840WRS is only 38Hz to 20kHz. Typically a matching 8-inch in-ceiling speaker is 5 to 10 dB lower than the 6.5" version. These three specs; Impedance, Sensitivity, and Frequency Response weight heavest in our system designing.TL/5600
Mike • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Could these speakers be used in a residential steam shower application?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Mike:Yes, these speakers should work for your application. They feature rustproof Aluminum Grills, and weatherproof components would recommend adding a bid of Waterproof Silicon around the cutout hole so, it forms a seal with the frame when installing the speaker.TL/5674
