Lifetime Tech Support

This 8-inch in-ceiling, weather-resistant speaker pair is great for high-humidity areas, including outdoor patios, bathrooms and laundry rooms. Great for covered porches patios! 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 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 8" 150W Weather Resistant Outdoor In-Ceiling Speaker w/ Built-in Crossover, Pair - ICE840WRS

Tommy D. • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Will these work with an OM SUB200?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Tommy: I would be more inclined to add a pair of OS800 Omni full range speakers that have a lower frequency response (42Hz to 50Hz for the OMSUB200). It would give you more coverage with the 360 degree coverage x 2. That would work better with the ICE840 WRS. The OS800 is $14.00 less than the OMSUB200. So 2 each (or a stereo pair) would be more but they are also in stock. You could add an OVC300 outdoor volume control before the speakers and then wire the OS800 in parallel with the ICE840WRS. I hope that helps TL/4967
Tim • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q What type of mounting brackets will I need to mount these speakers under my carport (new build)?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Tim: The NCCB8 will be your best choice if you want to use New Construction Brackets. They are ideal for speaker placement before your ceiling is closed up. It provides a template to cut out the speaker locations. But the speaker has the mounting brackets that will allow you to mount the speaker without the New Construction Brackets. It may be a little harder to find your location after the ceiling has been closed up. TL/5342
Ed Pittman • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q We live within a block of the beach. Are the exposed parts rust proof?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Ed:The Speaker Grills are Aluminum and will not rust. I would suggest adding a dab of weatherproof silicone to the exposed head of the mounting screws of the Dog Ear mounting clamps after they have tightened and the grill has snapped in place. You also might consider putting a bead of the silicone on the backside of the frame, so you create a seal around the cutout hole.Good choiceTL/5524
