For rooms larger than 140 sq. ft., an 8" in-ceiling speaker is an excellent choice. These high-powered models 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 Pro 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” 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.

What do dog ear brackets do? Customers typically purchase OSD Audio ceiling speakers for new construction or retrofit. In new construction, studs or joists are exposed and sheet rock or ceiling tiles have not been installed. Retrofit refers to speakers installed into existing rooms. In retrofit construction, customers will use the dog ear clamps (sometimes referred to as retrofit brackets) that are included in the frames of all OSD Audio ceiling speakers. Once you are ready to install the speakers, after the ceiling has been installed and your hole has been cut, remove the grill so you have access to the four mounting screws that activate the dog ears. In new construction, a mounting bracket is often used although it is not required when you purchase our ceiling speakers. The two advantages for using brackets are: 1) you can determine the exact placement of the speaker while providing a template to cut the mounting hole; and 2) mounting brackets provide additional support. If you do not want to use mounting brackets, you can you can put up the drywall or ceiling, cut the hole and use the dog ear clamps to secure the speakers. (Note: the dog ears are also used in conjunction with the new construction brackets.)
For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.
