Dayton Audio CS620C 6-1/2" 2-Way Ceiling Speaker Pair
How will these speakers perform in a steam shower room?
Steam rooms are a fairly harsh environment.
You are right, a steam shower represents one of the most challenging environments for a speaker (salt water being the most...), however, the materials used to make this speaker will serve you well. The combination of Carbon Fiber cones and Butyl Rubber surrounds will ensure the longest life possible, and the UV rated plastic grille and mounting hardware are designed to withstand the Arizona sun as well as the rain in Washingtonn state! So.... If you'd like a good sounding, durable speaker that shoud provide 6-10 years of enjoyment before suffering environmental related failure. this is a great choice. Enjoy!

What Should Sealed Box Volume be for These?
Thanks Invisible Audio and Nitnub. Unfortunately, I received IA's answer first and made the purchase. They seem to be very good quality. I will let you know how they work and last.What should the sealed box volume be for these? (No stuffing.) I'm just going to make a couple of 5-sided boxes and attach to ceiling joists with openings down. The tiler will be installing Wedi Board (since a steam shower) including interior of box and over opening, then tile leaving a 7 3/8" cutout for me to install the speakers. If they fail, they'll be simple to replace and I won't have to worry about moisture damage behind them.Thanks!
I would recommend a box of .35 cubic feet to .65 cubic feet. Ideally meeting in the middle at .5 cubic feet would be a good overall sound. THe smaller the box the more crisp bass, the bigger box you can expect a little more depth to the bass, but a little more muddy sound. I have never used these speakers before, but these are what I use in other applications for a speaker this size. As far as dimensionally, I would go with a box 11x11x7 deep, interior dimensions, using at least a 3/4 thickness wood. Hope this helps, Cheers!

Will a standard tile bridge for an 8" speaker work with this?
Yes, the bridge we recommend is part number 300-311. As lng as the hole is 7-3/8 to 7-1/2" in diameter it will work with these speakers.
