In-Ceiling and In-Wall speakers are easy to install and virtually invisible. Paintable speaker grilles mean that you’ll barely notice that you even have speakers in your room.

Since then he has put in a Jubilee HT system in his home, bought and sold almost every HP, KI, KPT speaker ever made, and has set up Klipsch PA systems at churchs, youth camps, and music venues. He also has plenty of experience with Klipsch in-ceiling and in-wall speakers as he has them installed in his home.

Greetings Forum Family,

 

This is indeed a great opportunity for forum folks to have first access to speakers donated by Klipsch in support of the museum.  Please note that the prices are but a few dollars over half price.  Roy knows that I have Klipsch in-wall and in-ceiling speakers in my home and have installed them in friends' homes and asked me to share with you.  Each of these speakers was voiced by Roy and, therefore, share the Klipsch signature sound.

 

I will be purchasing some of these for additional applications in my own home.  My Klipsch pro theater is in need of some ATMOS height speakers and a couple of you have asked about ATMOS height.  ATMOS height runs from about 100Hz up and all of the speakers on the list are capable of serving as ATMOS height.  I will be purchasing two of the DS-180CDT.  The DS-180CDT and the DS-160-CDT both permit modest aiming of both woofer and tweeter.  That will allow us to aim the speakers back a bit.

 

The CSM speakers are two speakers in one chassis.  There are two tweeters mounted in a dual-voice coil woofer.  Both left and right channel are present in one speaker, much like the AWR-650-SM rock speakers.  I will be buying two of the DS-180CSM to install in the ceiling over a covered patio and two more for a friend's patio ceiling.

 

The DS-250W LCR look very interesting with similar configuration to the venerable KG-2.5, a real over-achiever.  These should make great LCR speakers in the wall around a TV and even better with a sub.

 

For the DIY and tinkerers, any of these speakers could be mounted in a little 1 to 1.5 cu ft cabinet for a variety of applications, like a pair of garage speakers.  The in-wall speakers were all designed to be installed in a wall cavity with 16" OC studs and 8' ceiling.  That totals about 2.7 cu ft.  A little floor standing DIY cabinet 12" wide, 12" deep, and 42" high yields about the same volume.  You could build a little mini tower and pop in one of these speakers.  I'm sure y'all will have more creative uses.

 

Please let me know how I can help or answer questions . . . . 

 

Bill

Considering how hard these are to get I am surprised there aren't more takers. I hope a few are available when I start my shed.

They are moving a little bit at a time. I am going to measure this weekend for a couple of areas and give them a go.

 

@bhendrix got some for his place but I haven't heard if he has done anything with them yet.

***Exposure to this thread should hope out. We get architectural and ceiling/ wall speaker questions most days here.

Will remember this posting...

Slow but steady. I think people have put construction  type projects on hold for awhile.

Thinking of getting these in ceiling speakers to replace my rear surrounds when I do my remodel. How do they sound?

Great, he knows that stuff really well. He has spoken to Roy and Trey about the entire line. In addition he has intake some of the speakers in his home and helped a friend install them in  a high- end home that I believe is new construction.

Hi David,

 

The in-ceiling speakers work well for side or rear surrounds.  I would go 8" instead of 6.5" for fuller sound.  I purchased  the DS-180CDT from the Klipsch Museum to replace my original RCW-3 (6.5").  The DS-180CDT (8") sound better and I love the snap-in mounting system.

 

I originally tried a complete in-ceiling system in a family room and found I am not a fan of in-ceiling for the front LCR with a video application.  In-ceiling is great for ambient listening or for the rear or side surround, but the LCR needs to be either in-wall or a cabinet speaker, imho.

 

Hope this helps . . . .

 

Bill

I have CDT5800 II as side and rear surrounds in my family room. I know that is not what is being offered here but just to respond to @Fido ---they sound good to me. I am no HT connoisseur by any means. I have RF7-II and RC64 II up front and did not want more speakers hanging on the walls in our family room.

I am not into HT that much either but my wife likes watching a lot of TV and we will not have a wall to put the rear surrounds on with the remodel we are attempting to do. Still all sound is important to me so if ceiling speakers give that surround sound effect we will be quite happy.

If it is just an occasional movie in 5.1 the in ceilings will do you just fine. I don't know how much TV is in 5.1
