Step Up Features You'll Love!
Trimless SpeakersThe Architectural Ceiling Element (ACE) Trimless Series of ceiling speakers are ideal for new construction or retrofit. These elegant, flush mounted speakers blend effortlessly into any room interior and offer outstanding audio performance. The secret behind these stealthy speakers are the micro flange grilles attached by extremely powerful magnets that stay put for quick and easy installation.
Butyl Rubber SurroundWith almost double the shelf life of foam, butyl rubber is the choice of speaker designers. Butyl rubber allows the use of unique cone materials like Kevlar® and mineral-filled composites. Butyl Rubber also 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.
What Type of Wire and What Gauge?We recommend 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.
For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed. Please note: Use cut-out diameter according to the bullet point on the website.
