Features & Specifications

This 8-inch in-ceiling, weather-resistant speaker pair is great for high-humidity areas, including outdoor patios, bathrooms and laundry rooms. With high power handling and an 8-inch polypropylene woofer in each, these speakers deliver superior sound that covers large spaces. The ICE800WRS 8-Inch Weather-Resistant Ceiling Speaker Pair works well with a CL-3 in-wall rated speaker wire, which is designed to run inside walls.

What Kind of Cable Is Needed?
We recommend purchasing our CL-3 in-wall rated speaker wired designed to run inside walls. The National Electrical Code (NEC) specifies fire-retardant wire in all crawl spaces or wall cavities. CL-3 rated wire is not much more expensive and includes special shielding specifically for in-wall use. OSD Audio offers CL3/FT4 cable that is UL (fire) rated for all residential and most commercial in-wall and in-ceiling applications. Always check your local building codes before you run wires.

For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.


Other Product Info

8" In-Ceiling Weather Resistant 150W Outdoor Rated Speaker. The water resistant design can be used in high humidity areas such as Outdoor patios, bathrooms or laundry rooms 10yr Warranty! Great for covered porches & patios!

Hi, Will these speakers work with a 70V Transformer?
1 Answer
Hi Dylan: Any 8-ohm speaker will work with 70V as long as you add an inline Transformer like our Weatherproof OSD-EW70V. It will give you 5 tap setting (2.5, 5, 10, 15, 20W) based upon how much wattage you have available and how many speakers you are planning to use in your system. You typically know how many watts your 70V amplifier has. Let say it is a 240-watt amplifier like our PAM245. Which is rated at 240-watts. The rule of thumb for 70V tells us you have 80% of 240 watts available. That would leave you with 192 watts to work with. If you set the tap at 20W that means you can do 9 speakers at 20W to work with (total, 180W) your 192 watts. If you set each speaker to 15 watts then you could have 12 for 180 watts and probably could go one more for a total of 195 watts which is close enough. One last note you do not have to set all taps the same so you have some flexibility in the setup where one speaker at 15w would play at a lower volume than another speaker set to the 20W setting. Hopefully, that helps, good luck TL/

I plan on using these in my soffit, would the sound quality be better with the soffit as my speaker enclosure or building a small wooden enclosure for them to be in, in the soffit. Something just a little bigger than the speaker. Thanx Rich
1 Answer
Hi Rich: The soffit should work fine, we now also have a step up speaker to the ICE800WRS called a ICE840WRS. Another option would be to use an AP650 Indoor./Outdoor Patio Speaker that features a two way mounting system that both Swivels and Tilts. Your best sound quality would come from a speaker aimed at your optimum listening area. And it includes the tuned cabinet. The down side it might not be as stealth as the in-ceiling speaker. The AP650 comes in a white or Black option. It also is our highest rated weatherproof speaker since is a sealed enclosure with no ports. TL/4647

Rich Coleman
from Southern MD asked:
November 13, 2017
How many watts does each speaker consume, I understand that they are 8 ohms each and rated for up to 150 watts. I plan on using about 12 of them. Thanx Rich
1 Answer
Hi Rick: These speakers have a range of 10 to 150 watts, plus at 90dB sensitivity they are fairly efficient. As an example it would take twice as much power if it were rated at 87dB. What does the rest of your system look like. We can help with any system design. Just let us know if we can help, Think about layout and images of your project and what equipment you already have or are planning to purchase. Include Brand and model number where available.

February 12, 2017
With the ICE800WRS construction it is impossible to disassemble the grill from the assembly. How do you spray paint the grill face?......
1 Answer
Hi Tim: The grill is removable since you have to to remove it to access the screws of the toggle brackets to actually mount the unit to your hole cutout. There is also a thin cloth you will want to remove as well from the inside of the grill. Also included with the kit is a template to cutout your mounting hole. This also doubles as a paint shield to cover the baffle allowing you to paint the frame. There are two lines clearly marked Cutout and paint shield.I have been told there are a couple of ways to pain the grill and frame. One with spray paint which might be harder to match and the other the good old paint brush with the exact matching paint. painting with a brush will take a couple of passes and it is recommended to water the paint down a bit. Again remove the inner cloth if there is one. You also might want to check for a You Tube video or ask at a paint store. Good luck TL/4216

Can I mount these in a vaulted patio ceiling (4:12 pitch)?
1 Answer
Hi Keith: Will you be applying a ceiling where you enclose the joists so you have a surface to install the ICE 800 WRS. My recommendation would be would be to use one of our unique AP525 or AP650 Patio speaker where you can aim your sound better for maximum coverage. It will work whether you enclose the ceiling or not. The bracket swivels and also tilts providing maximum flexibility when installing. You can also change the aim after you have installed them. The AP Patio speakers also feature a true crossover and a better sound quality than the ICE WRS speakers. TL/4330

By pair, that means it comes with 2 speakers correct?
1 Answer
Hi Nate: Yes there are two speakers one for right channel and the second for your left channel. You want to place between 8 and 10 feet apart. Both speakers are in one box. The ICE 800TT WRS is a single stereo speaker that features dual voice coil. It is for an application where you only have room for a single speaker but have both a right (+/-) and Left (+/-) coming into the zone. So you connect the left to one set of inputs and the right to the second set. It is called summed mono stereo Full range output. They have dual tweeters one for left and the second for right. These speakers are sold as each (single). The ICE 800 WRS is sold as stereo pairs. TL/4281

I have a 2 channel amp that is 130W/ch @ 8 ohms. Could I run 2 of these speakers per channel? If so, in series or parallel? Thanks
1 Answer
Hi Sam: It depends on the 2 channel amplifier you are using. If it is a high current amplifier that has no problem running two pairs of speakers wired in parallel. That will drop your impedance down to 4 ohms and will get you the highest output. Running two speakers in Series establish (doubles your impedance from 8 to 16 ohms). This also cuts your output in half. Does your amplifier/Receiver have an A/B speaker switch as well that allows you to play both A and B at the same time?. Typically this will connect your two pair of speakers in Parallel (4 ohm). TL/4167

Hi: Juan: They will be too big for your cutout hole. These speakers need a cut out hole of 9 5/16". Your cutout hole is 8 1/2". The 6.5" ICE-600 WRS are 7 5/8" and would not work.

HI Bob: I would recommend looking at the MK840. It features a weather resistant Powder Coated Grill and a Polypropylene cone. I would recommend using a little silicone around the inside of the frame when you mount it in the enclosure. Definitely a step up over the ICE-800 WRS in components and design.

I am interested in spray painting the speaker grill and trim ring of the speaker. Once the grill is removed, I found that it has a felt-like overlay inside. Any suggestions on how to paint these items, without coating the felt overlay, not sure i it is removable. Thanks
1 Answer
Hi Chris, There really is no way to paint it correctly as long as that cloth is attached. It is best to remove the cloth as gently as possible to keep it intact and then paint the grill. After you have painted it and it has dried, you can use an adhesive spray to reconnect the cloth to the speaker, although it is not required. Thanks! BM 2749

I have about a 2 foot eave on the back of my house. For a cleaner look I was thinking of installing a pair of these speakers instead of ones such as the AP650's. My only concern is since these will be facing directly downward I won't hear them as well in my pool which is about 15 ft from my house.
1 Answer
Hi Scott, You are correct in assuming that you would not hear the speakers as well in a down-firing form than you would in a patio style. I would recommend running the AP650 patio speakers so that the audio will travel out towards the pool and will also supply more bass response. Another idea would be to run the patio speakers or rock speakers out beyond the patio to cover the yard and then run the in-ceiling speakers in the patio ceiling to cover the patio. Call us with questions. Thanks! -BM 2385

Hi Mike, For areas with higher levels of moisture, we recommend adding a ring of silicone around the trim when pressing the speaker into the ceiling. Before installation, it's also a good idea to spray the grills with a Rustoleum. The grills come with a powder coating but the additional paint will give your investment added protection from the elements. CL/MA 1830

I'm buying this speaker for my porch but I don't know what accessories I need to buy for this project.
1 Answer
Hi Mayra, Assuming you have a covered patio that has a ceiling with a hollow space behind it, all you need is something to cut a hole in the ceiling to mount the speaker. The speaker features a mounting system that requires removing the grill so you can access the mounting screws that are attached to the dog-ear brackets that secure the speaker to the ceiling and frame. This takes a Phillips head screwdriver. You will also need two-conductor speaker wire from your source (either receiver or amplifier) that will connect to each speaker. The two-conductor is color coded positive (red) and negative (black). You will need one from the Right output and one from the Left output of the receiver/amplifier. OSD Audio offers CL-rated cable designed specially for in-wall and outdoor installations. We hope this helps. TL/MA 1260

Hi Magnus, These speakers do not have an official IP rating and are typically used in covered sealed patio areas not exposed directly to the elements. They utilize aluminum grills and an ABS plastic frame, and the driver is polypropylene and the surround is butyl rubber. The back of the speaker is sealed from the elements by the weatherproofed driver and surround under the grill. If I had to create an IP number for this speaker, I would say IP51. I hope that helps.
