Ceiling Speaker 2-Way 8" Contract Series Single ICE800

Builders Series Speakers are a cost effective way for the builder or home owner to add speakers to every room for a fraction of the cost.
The Ceiling Speaker Single ICE800 is one 8-inch speaker for in-ceiling use that has a polypropylene cone woofer with butyl rubber surround. Users will find the power handling to be top notch. The ICE800 Series is a good choice for production homes and very big commercial spaces, and contractors favor this model for its combination of quality and economy. Add a lot of speakers into a home without spending a lot of money. Installation is easy. In-ceiling speakers that are 8 inches are an appropriate choice for rooms that are bigger than 140 square feet. Increasing the cone size will bring with it a richer bass sound. 8-inch cones are also great for home theater setups. Butyl Rubber Surround is good for sound damping, a wider frequency response and superior durability. It's not uncommon for someone to get a quarter-century of use out of speakers with Butyl Rubber Surround.

Choosing the right Speaker Size
For rooms larger than 140 square feet, an 8" in-ceiling speaker is an excellent choice, although our 6.5" models also perform well in large areas. A 5-1/4 cone is excellent for small rooms and whole house audio, but the larger the cone the greater frequency response (the range of musical tones a speaker can produce) you'll get. Bass response or the ability of a speaker to crank out those low notes will improves as cone sizes increase. An 8-inch speaker can be used in home theaters and distributed audio, which is where an 8-inch cone shines. After all, whole house audio systems don't have the benefits of a separate subwoofer like home theaters so the added bass really makes a difference in sound quality.

Benefits of Butyl Rubber Surround
Surrounding the speaker cone, Butyl Rubber Surround is a tough, moisture-resistant rubber that helps reflect energy and provides excellent sound damping characteristics. Most professional agree that Butyl Rubber Surround is a step up from typical form surrounds and benefits include superior durability. 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.

For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.
