Aspire® 8" 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers

The Aspire line strikes a perfect balance between performance and price, delivering pristine,
impactful sound quality, with minimal impact on your décor thanks to paintable zero-bezel
grilles. Round shaped grilles are included, while square grilles are available as an option sep-
arately. Streamlined installation of each speaker is facilitated through a three-point, spring-
loaded toggle clamp mounting system optimized to minimize interference with obstructions
within the ceiling space.

The Aspire IC8 model provides a pair of 2-way in-ceiling speakers featuring 8 inch woven
poly-glass composite woofers for rich, impactful low end, and 1 inch advanced synthetic
polymer dome tweeters for crisp, soaring highs. Offset post-mounting of the tweeters
reduces midrange frequency response anomalies normally caused by interference between
the woofer and the back of the tweeter. Precisely tuned 4th order crossovers ensure a full,
warm and detailed response across the spectrum. Power handling is an impressive 150 Watts
(program), with a wide frequency response from 48 Hz to 20 kHz (±3 dB).
