We've been in the professional Home Audio Installation business for 25 years, and have been a speaker wholesaler for the past 10. We know speakers, and currently use only three different models for 90% of our home audio installations.
This speaker is exactly the same size as our compact speaker, but has special features.
This speaker is used in many of our hi-end home audio installations. It is very efficient and out performs many other models.
10 Detailed Photos are below.... but be sure to read these details:
This is a most versatile ceiling speaker indeed. Although originally designed for bathrooms where very high-humidity accumulates (the speakers are totally protected as you will see in the photos below, even the rears have protection), we also use these speakers in hallways, on outside decks, and and anywhere else we need to hear "both left and right channels" in a small area. The goal in designing this unit was to be able to maintain "true stereo", and not simply to combine the signals together to achieve mono from stereo. Take a look at the many photos below. You will easily notice that EACH TWEETER is slightly angled to project that channels sound in a slightly different direction. As hi-end frequencies reflect, it works very well. For the low-end, two separate woofer-coils are stacked on top of each other to operate the same woofer cone.
The unusual design specifications of this speaker incorporates both high-humidity tolerance AND dual voice coils. This was because two speakers can look "over done" in many smaller bathrooms, so this unit was designed with TWO TOTALLY INDEPENDENT INPUTS. Being in the installation business for over 25 years, personally I still recommend using two speakers (yes even in bathrooms) for optimum separation and sound dispersion. People tend to take for granted the difference good separation makes. In one of the photos below you will see a small bathroom with 3 speakers installed above the shower. Two of these are this dual-voice coil speaker, and and the center one is the 61 series we also sell. While this is not a typical bathroom installation, the end-sound is totally awesome. If you do decide to use two of these in your room instead of one, you must wire the two inputs on the same speaker in parallel (then the dual tweeters will really spread out the sound nicely). But if you know you only want to install JUST ONE SPEAKER for decor purposes, you will still be quite pleased with the result.. This speaker is 9 inches (total footprint on ceiling after installed) so it also matches large recessed lighting fixtures well. This speaker uses the exact same cutout template as our 61 series speaker we sell at www.private-ebay.com (the only other 6.5" round unit we sell). That unit also works well in bathrooms, but has one tweeter/input channel as opposed to this units two.
Concerning the weatherproof rating of this speaker, it is well protected. Far more than necessary (for bathrooms) in my opinion. In fact since we normally install two speakers in bathrooms, I often use the 61 series speaker we sell at www.private-ebay.com for them (single channel) so they totally match the rest of the speakers in the house (we do entire home installs). We do, however, use these units for when customers insist on only one unit in a bathroom, and most commonly we use these on outside decks which are NOT covered and protected from the elements. And of course we use these anywhere else we NEED to get stereo sound from the same unit; the separation really is excellent. If you are considering this unit for an outside deck, it is a great choice, BUT: If your deck is covered and protected from direct weather, I suggest you go with the 81 series larger 8" (about 11" after install) speaker we sell at www.private-ebay.com. It holds up very well outside so long as it is a COVERED deck. For uncovered decks where direct weather hits the speaker, this weather-rated speaker (the listing you are viewing now) is the best option in a ceiling-mount.
Important One-Year Warranty Note:
Buying online can sometimes make it difficult in the event of getting something repaired or replaced under warranty. Because of this I include one warranty registration card with each speaker ordered, so that if you need this 1 year warranty, you can send your unit right back to the manufacturer without having to track us down here on eBay. We thought of everything - if you read our feedback you'll see that we truly care about our customers and strive to treat them as we would want treated ourselves. On a separate note: These speakers have a high rating, and it is NOT often we find these going bad. I seriously doubt with this speaker, you'll ever need the warranty, but it is nice to have.
The Easiest Installation: These units could not be easier to install. Use the heavy 7 2/3" cardboard template circle, which we include with your order, to make a circle on the the ceiling. Then cut the hole and run the wire. Then put the speaker in the hole, and tighten the attached screws. Four thick wings on the back of the speaker (see the photos below) fly out and securely hold the unit in place and prevent the unit from vibrating or moving in anyway. The lip of the speaker (see the photos below) is extra wide to cover any imperfections in your cutting. Then snap on the included white grill and you're done. Since these are 8-ohms, you can use 18 gauge wire for runs <50', or 16 gauge for 50-100'. Unlike with other speakers, NO HARDWARE IS NEEDED in anyway whatsoever, it is all attached to the speaker itself (see the photos). The speaker hardware can hold the speaker securely to drywall, plaster, drop-ceiling tiles, or anything else. We've been installing these for years now, and are totally pleased with the mounting system - it is the best we've found.

Wiring Note for this speaker: It is absolutely essential to get the correct polarity on this speaker. Negative to Negative and Positive to Positive. Reversing polarity will destroy the speaker since 90% of all power would be given off in heat dissipation instead of sound (if wired incorrectly). So if running TRUE STEREO SOUND to one of these speakers, ensure - to - and + to + on each input, and if running this speaker as ONE CHANNEL, then connect the two +s together and the two -s together and run them back to your receiver. Also note that since the voice coils are 8ohms each, wiring them together into one channel will give you a 4ohm load. We know our products inside and out.
