Lifetime Tech Support

Relax in the tub and enjoy beautiful sound with this water-resistant 8" in-ceiling speaker! With 150W power handling, this in-ceiling speaker is the solution to bringing quality audio to high moisture areas, and is constructed of durable, moisture-resistant materials for use in high-humidity areas such as bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens, patios, under outdoor eaves or covered porches. Sold as a single speaker, the ICE800TTWRS offers excellent stereo sound and takes up half the space of a standard speaker pair, while still delivering smooth, 2-channel sound. The aluminum grill cover is rust-resistant for wet application. This weather-resistant speaker was created specifically for an application where you have a right (+/-) and left (+/-) stereo signal coming into a room/ space where you only have space for a single speaker. Just connect one pair of conductors to one set of inputs (+/-) and the second pair of conductors to the second set of inputs.

What Is a Dual Voice Coil Ceiling Speaker?
A Dual Voice Coil (DVC) Ceiling Speaker uses a special voice coil cone design that allows both channels of a stereo system to drive one cone. Sounds complicated but it's not. Basically, a DVC speaker plays both right and left channels through one speaker cone. You get both channels but without the acoustic separation that happens with two speakers. There are places like bathrooms, closets or hallways that just can’t accommodate multiple speakers, so a DVC speaker solves the problem and produces great sound.

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.

41 Questions asked on 8" Weather-Resistant Outdoor/ Indoor Dual Tweeter Stereo In-Ceiling Speaker, Single - ICE800TTWRS

Erlin • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Hello, What is the RMS watt power for this speaker? is 150 watts Max Power or RMS? also, can it take 2 4ohm channels to equal 8 ? Can the Tweeters pivot? Thanks,
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A HI Erlin: The speaker is rated at 150 Watts Peak 75 watts peak. I not sure there is a 4 ohm output on an amplifier or Receiver. It may be 8 ohm typically but have the ability to go to 4 or even 2 ohm. But it depends on the load you apply and in this case the speaker is a dual voice coil speaker that when connected to your amplifier it will show a 8 ohm load. So no problem. Note your amplifier may show a 4 ohm load and list an 8 ohm load which maybe half the power. These speaker at 8 ohm speakers would put less demand and only draw half the power than your rated 4 ohm spec. TL/4499
ryan • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q New to the speaker world....So I am installing a covered 13x36 gable style patio with a pool behind it in the yard. Want to have speakers in the ceiling . How many would I need in this area? I plan on having a Tv out there and would like to be able to have the volume play either over the tv or over the speakers. Also would like to play songs from iphone when needed. What kind of equipment will I need and how many speakers should I get? I would like to hear music while in the pool as well.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A HI Ryan: Checkout our Upload Your Plans option on our Outdoor Speaker Depot Web Site. I would suggest submitting a blueprint or diagram of your area plus as many images of the area you can take from different angles. You will need to determine where your equipment will be located as far as amplification and sources. My contact info: tim@osdaudio.com TL/4519
Christian • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Hello, Do you see any reason why I wouldn't install these indoor for main areas in my home? I am looking for 8" stereo speakers and the ICE840TT is currently out of stock and this speaker seems to be the same but it is weather proof? I really don't want the trimless so I didn't want to go with the ACE840TT. I was just worried that the sound quality would not be as good as the indoor rated.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Christian: You should to checkout the new ICE840TT WRS, the step up Indoor/outdoor speaker. It has a similar crossover as the ACE840TT. Sound quality is very close. TL/4644
Dave • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I have two of these hooked up currently. Unfortunately I only hooked up one side of each of these speakers and now I’m regretting it. Unfortunately it was a huge pain in neck to run the wire and I just can’t do it again. My question is can I run a two wire cable from one speaker to the other, like a jumper cable? Would that work?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Dave: A tricky problem, first will need to know what amplifier you are connected to and if it can be bridged mono? You might be able to get away wiring these in series-parallel but will need to know if you can have abridged mono output so you are connecting only the 2 positives from your amp's speaker A, Of course, the amp has to have stereo/Bridged mono switch and be labeled on the output side in order for this to work. Please let me know so I can supply you with a diagram how to wire it. You need four connections for this to work and you have 2 connections per speaker. And it will involve running the additional wire between the two speakers while utilizing the current two conductor cable you already have. tim@osdaudio.com TL/5027
Byron Carlson • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q If I use a 2 channel amp connected to the ICE800TTWRS and then further connect (in parallel) an AP670's off each side of the ICE800TTWRS, I have 3 questions: 1) Will my AMP experience a 4ohm load? 2) Will my AP 670's keep their stereo separation? 3) Would Volume levels at the AP670 be impacted by this setup. See diagram for clarity.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A HI Brian Good questions; 1) Yes, the Amplifier will see a 4-ohm load 2) They should keep their stereo separation if you are concerned then you might run a four conductor speaker wire to each input for the ICE800TTWRS and terminate two of the conductors to one of the input connections. Then take the remaining two conductors and extend them to each AP670 with a new Two conductor speaker cable. You would terminate the two sets of four conductor cable directly to the right and left output of the Amplifier. This connection would become your parallel connecting point. 3) Both the AP670 and ICE800TTWRS have similar specs; I would assume your performance level would be affected by the quality of the Power Amplifier you are using. Our AMP300 and AMP200 would have no problem with a 4-ohm load since they are High Current Amplifiers that are 2-ohm stable. TL/5327
