Product code: ACE870
There’s a reason our ACE870 has so many rave reviews customers love the look, sound and power of this heavy-duty Atmos-ready home theater ceiling speaker. Designed for high-end audio systems, larger home theaters or commercial spaces such as bars or restaurants, the ACE870 can handle up to 175W of power so you can push volume levels without any sign of stress.
The beauty of the MK870 is in the design. The mid-bass driver is angled at 15 degrees, which gives you more placement flexibility than standard in-ceiling speakers. This makes the MK870 ideal for Dolby Atmos surround sound systems because you can place the speakers in multiple places to create an all-enveloping 3D sound experience.
In addition to crisp, detailed mid and high frequencies, this single ceiling speaker kicks out impressive bass due in part to the 8” Kevlar woofer and heavy-duty and efficient magnet structure that focuses energy within the voice coil gap. Other audiophile features designed into the MK870 include front-mounted contour switches, so you can tailor bass and treble to your preferences as well as butyl rubber surround that gives the speaker more excursion capability for deeper bass and wider frequency response. The MK870 installs easily into ceilings with four easy-to-lock-in dog-eared brackets and includes a cut-out mounting template.
What Are the Advantages of Angled Ceiling Speakers?
Not every room or space is the ideal setup for custom home theater sound applications. When traditional in-wall or on-wall speakers are not practical or even possible, in-ceiling speakers can be a great alternative. The problem with in-ceiling speakers is noticeable in a LCR (front stage) setup, because they need to be installed away from the wall to avoid sound reflection. This can create a disconnect between the screen and the sound coming from the speakers. An angled speaker can be installed closer to the wall, just above the screen, and the speaker assembly can be aimed toward the listening area. The angled design is also ideal for a Dolby Atmos down-firing speaker setup where overhead sound is an essential part of the 3D experience.
