The OSD Contractor Series is a cost effective way for a builder or homeowner to add speakers to every room at a fraction of the cost. With an 8-inch woofer and high power handling, this in-wall will have no problem covering large spaces or rooms with vaulted or high ceiling and the reasonable price point gives customers freedom to add sound throughout the house.

  • Pivoting silk dome tweeter
  • Easy installation with dog-eared bracket system
Why Choose In-Wall Speakers Over Regular Speakers?
Typically, rectangular in shape in-wall speakers are mounted in the wall and take up far less space than traditional box speakers. Customers love that wires are neatly concealed behind the wall and OSD in-walls can even be painted to match a room décor. Most in-wall speakers use the wall cavity as their enclosure or cabinet, which explains why in-wall must be installed to sound right. In-wall speakers come with special screws (called dog ears) that flip out and secure to the drywall (or other wall surfaces), a nearby stud, or a special frame attached to the studs. Custom installation frames (brackets) can also be purchased for a more secure fit or for lighter wall materials that require more support. In wall speakers are often categorized by the size of the woofer, not the size of the speaker itself.

What Type of Speaker Wire and What Gauge?
Wiring is not included with in-wall 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.

Installation Tips:
For optimal sound, separate speakers by six to ten feet. Carefully plan the layout of your home theater system, as speaker installation requires that you cut a hole in your wall. 

For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.

9 Questions asked on 8" In-Wall 120W Speaker Pair w/ Pivoting Tweeter - IW800

Tom Jeffry • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q Does the 8" contractor series in wall speakers come in black?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A This speaker comes in white only (actually an off-white). It's very easy to paint and color to match your decor. We even include a cut-out template that doubles as a paint shield. TL/MA
Ryan • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM Q I would like to use the IW800 and the IW525 for my Front LCR. What would be the best speakers to use for the Back LR?
Customer Service • 12/17/2019, 2:17:43 PM
A Hi Ryan, You picked a nice matching combination as itís important to have similar speakers for your front stage. We recommend having the same series like you have chosen where the cone material for the drivers is the same and you are using identical tweeters. Regarding the surrounds, it is not as critical to match a series of speakers but rather your choice is usually dictated by access to wiring with our first choice being something in the ceiling. Be sure the tweeter is aiming directly at the listening area (seating). The ideal speaker for this application is the ICE630LCR angled speaker. The best location for these speakers is roughly 3 to 5 feet above and behind or to the side. The angled design lets you place them closer to a wall if that is the most accessible location to run your wires. The speaker is angled 15 degrees with a tweeter that pivots up to another 15 degrees. If you only have an in-wall option, I would look at the IW670 speakers, but make sure they are low enough so that the tweeter is aimed at the listening area. Hopefully that helps. TL/MA
