Lifetime Tech Support

This 8-inch in-ceiling, weather-resistant speaker pair is ideal for high-humidity areas, including outdoor patios, bathrooms, laundry rooms, and covered porches! With high power handling and an 8-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 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.

Keith • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Can I mount these vertically on a wall?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Keith: Yes the can be mounted in-ceiling or In-wall. I still think based upon the image that you sent our AP patio speakers either the AP525 or AP650 will be best for your application. TL/4331
Ryan • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Your 8" outdoor speaker new construction bracket not on accessory page and unavailable on amazon. Just sayin
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
HI Ryan: The NCCB8 New Construction Bracket is listed under Speakers/In-Ceiling/New Construction Bracket (listed as in stock). It is not currently listed under AMAZON Canada. We can check with AMAZON Canada about adding them, but it is up to our internal AMAZON salesperson and AMAZON Canada. TL/4432
Rich Coleman • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM How many watts does each speaker consume, I understand that they are 8 ohms each and rated for up to 150 watts. I plan on using about 12 of them. Thanx Rich
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Rick: These speakers have a range of 10 to 150 watts, plus at 90dB sensitivity they are fairly efficient. As an example it would take twice as much power if it were rated at 87dB. What does the rest of your system look like. We can help with any system design. Just let us know if we can help, tim@osdaudio.com. Think about layout and images of your project and what equipment you already have or are planning to purchase. Include Brand and model number where available. We have an option called Upload your Plans, check it out. TL/4646
Rich Coleman • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I plan on using these in my soffit, would the sound quality be better with the soffit as my speaker enclosure or building a small wooden enclosure for them to be in, in the soffit. Something just a little bigger than the speaker. Thanx Rich
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Rich: The soffit should work fine, we now also have a step up speaker to the ICE800WRS called a ICE840WRS. Another option would be to use an AP650 Indoor./Outdoor Patio Speaker that features a two way mounting system that both Swivels and Tilts. Your best sound quality would come from a speaker aimed at your optimum listening area. And it includes the tuned cabinet. The down side it might not be as stealth as the in-ceiling speaker. The AP650 comes in a white or Black option. It also is our highest rated weatherproof speaker since is a sealed enclosure with no ports. TL/4647

Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
HI Steve: Yes these will work for your application. We confirmed the clearance is 1.5". TL/4708
