Lifetime Tech Support

In our 6.5-inch category, the ICE610 contractor series speaker with polypropylene cone woofer is a cost effective way for the builder or homeowner to add speakers to every room with a fraction of the cost. In spite of the low price, however, customers continually review the ICE610s as exceptionally solid sounding speakers. Contributing to this is the larger 6.5-inch polypropylene cone woofer with butyl rubber surround and .5'' PEI dome tweeter. Surrounding the speaker cone, Butyl Rubber Surround is a tough, moisture-resistant rubber that helps reflect energy and provides excellent sound damping characteristics. The ICE610s are an excellent choice for price-conscious customers who appreciate a good value.

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. 

What Is Butyl Rubber Surround?
With almost double the shelf life of foam, butyl rubber has been the choice of speaker designers looking to optimize the sound based upon materials that go together. The Surround is just one of the integral parts of the speaker's motor structure. Butyl Rubber gives the speaker more excursion capability featuring a deeper bass with a wider frequency response, and its shelf life is closer to 25 years compared to the foam at 12 to 15 years.

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.

ray • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM My cutout is 8 1/2, will 6 1/2s work or do I need to go 8?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Ray, The ICE610 ceiling speakers cut-out diameter is 7 3/4ths inch. We list this in the features and specs under 'view more'. It is easier to make a pre-existing hole larger than smaller. As an alternative, our ICE530 ceiling speakers have a cut out of 6 5/8ths which is almost perfect for your application. CL/MA 1899
David • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM when they say pair is it 1 or 2 speakers
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi David A pair means 2 speakers, a left and right stereo pair. If the speaker is labeled pair, a quantity of 1 equals one pair (2 speakers). CL/MA 1938
Bruce • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM I am going to paint the speakers. Do you recommend latex paint or spray paint from a can? I am worried about the latex paint and the grill. The spray paint seems to be a better choice.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Bruce: Spray paint works just fine. Make sure there is no cloth on the inside of the grill. If so it needs to be removed and discarded. TL-2098
Jack • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM can I hook this direct to my flat screen tv ( osd audio ice610 )
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Jack, The ICE610 is a passive device and would need an amp or receiver to power it. CS 2408
Phil • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Do I need to purchase impedance matching volume controls? I'm installing speakers in 8 rooms...I already have the splitter, just not sure about the volume controls.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
Hi Phil: It depends on the Speaker Selector Box (splitter)you have. Some are better than others for internal protection. While some speaker selectors work better with Impedance Matching Volume Control. As an example when you use our ISS and DSM speaker Selectors and you enable the Protection it cuts the power handling from 140 watts down to 70 Watts. While the TSM series features higher power handling and selectable protection settings. So we recommend using Impedance matching Volume Controls for the ISS and DSM speaker selectors and the TSM Speaker selector on its own. Note: you have to use Impedance Matching Volume Controls for all eight zones. We also offer the ATM7 (7 zone with IR Remote control) and SPW8 (a splitter box) which have no internal protection so we recommend using Impedance matching Volume Controls with both. Good Luck TL/3927
