 These high-powered 8 inch speakers are built to fill larger spaces and include high fidelity components. The Pro Series is perfect for customers who expect excellent sound but want to watch their budgets. Sold in pairs, the ICE840 in-ceiling speakers can be installed in home theaters and the low price tag allows many of our customers to install these in-ceiling speakers throughout the house. The 8 inch cone delivers excellent frequency response (i.e., the range of musical tones a speaker can produce); plus, bass response or the ability to crank out low notes, is superb. Other features of the ICE840 found on competing speakers costing twice, even three times more include a polypropylene woofer with rubber surround and pivoting 1" adjustable titanium tweeter for very smooth vocals. This in-ceiling speaker performs brilliantly in large spaces and also includes a gold-plated compression posts, a sophisticated crossover for clear channel separation and a heavy magnet to improve bass and sensitivity. We sell a lot of in-ceiling speakers and are able to offer these speakers at a price you won't find anywhere else. 

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.

9 Questions asked on 8" Flush Mount 150W 2-Way In-Ceiling Speaker Pair w/ Fiber Glass Woofer & Pivoting Tweeter - ICE840

Quincy • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Can these be used outside under a patio? The patio is covered and water is not an issue. Just curious because it does get hot and humid during the summer time.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Quincy: Yes, you can mount these under a covered patio. You will want to use a little silicone around the back of the frame to help seal them to the edges of the cutout hole. Good Luck TL/3746
Nick • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q For New Construction would I need to use a box to place the speaker in if it will be in a ceiling that will have blown in insulation placed after the drywall is finished?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A HI Nick: It would be a good idea to build an enclosure for each speaker especially if you have the access during pre construction phase. You might also want to utilize our New Construction bracket, the NCCB8. This will help make sure to line up the speaker with your enclosure. The enclosure can consist of a back board and two sides. I am thinking about 12"x 17" for the backboard. Maybe use a little Silicon to seal the enclosure. You will also be able to tune it by adding fiber fill (like the material they sell for pillows at a craft store). The fill will make the speaker think it is in a larger enclosure. Typically in-ceiling speakers with open back feature a woofer that works in an infinite baffle so it adapts to whatever size enclosure it is installed in. Your application is more for protection of the back of the driver. Good luck TL/4117
Joe • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Is 175 watts the max power per speaker or the rms power per speaker?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Joe: I am thinking to be on the safe side these are 125 watts RMS with peak of 175 per channel (each speaker). TL/4567
Geoffrey • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q This may appear to be a basic question, but how do you remove the grills? All the speakers I ordered came with the grills pre-installed and the none of the instructions that came with the speakers provided any instruction on removing the grills. Thanks.
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Geoffrey: Most of the speakers are shipped with a dedicated grill pulling tool that looks like a paper clip that has been stretched out to form a ring on ones ens and a small 90 degree bend at the other. The bend fits into the holes of the grill allowing you to pull the grill away from the frame. Another way to remove the grill is to take the speaker in your two hands and alternate your hands back and forth. You will note the grill will flex enough to allow you to slowly push the grill out from the slot around the speaker. Just do it slowly side to side. TL/4613
