Dayton Audio CS620EC 6-1/2" 2-Way Enclosed Ceiling Speaker
Dayton Audio CS620EC 6-1/2" 2-Way Enclosed Ceiling Speaker is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from They sound very good... A+, but PE failed to inspect B4 shipping.In the past we never liked to used enclosed ceiling speakers, but because of the location where these are being installed, (between 1st & 2nd floor) we had to use enclosed ceiling speakers to prevent sound and vibration from being heard above. The sound quality is excellent. Bass sounds very good. No plastic sound like you usually get from enclosed ceiling speakers. The speaker is just perfect, we really were not expecting such good result.HOWEVER!!! Although this has nothing to do with the speaker performance itself, I think it is worth mentioning that PE has dropped the ball on this one. We ordered two of them, and one of them came with some major manufacturer defects in the screw clamps mechanism. We tried to fix them, but after about 5 minutes of testing with about 5 watts of power, the speaker fell right to the floor, breaking the ring around it. Well, now we can't even use it nor return it.OVERALL!!! I think the speaker is excellent, the sound quality is top notch and we will definitely order more. Unfortunately, PE has dropped the ball and failed to catch the defects before shipping. No big deal! We have plenty of time to order a new one before installation is completed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Preliminary View is ExcellentPreliminary view is that these are excellent speakers for the price. Will install (6) in several educational rooms at our church with projectors and if we change our view, will post another comment. 8 ohms means you can connect several in parallel and still not blow your amp. We purchased the little 20 watt per channel stereo Lepai TA 2020 ($30) and it drove a pair of them very well. Sisnce it's output goes up as you add speakers, another speaker on each channel should just get better. They look so good you could even use them as pendant speakers, hanging them from a high ceiling like a pendant lamp, getting them closer to their audience. Add a little 50 watt powered Sub and you have a very nice setup at a very low price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for high ceiling/no ceilingI mounted these in the bathroom, with about a 10' ceiling and the attic above it. A speaker without a baffle or box would have had no low end response at all. These make some bass happen. The 9" grill on the ceiling makes it look like you have some large speakers up there, but in fact it is necessary to cover the port, etc. I think they are a good value and sound great for the bathroom. An 8" ceiling speaker, in an infinite baffle like an insulated attic would present, would have no bass.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good in-ceiing speakersI installed these speakers in the bathrooms in my gallery/event space. They sound great. A little bassey, but good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for whole house audioI bought these speakers for bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen in order to pipe music/tv/etc throughout the house. A breeze to install and they sound great. The fact that they have their own enclosure was a nice feature since i had insulation blown in my attic so the speaker is protected. On that same note, this 6.5" speaker has a 9.5" diameter grill because of that enclosure. So be sure you have enough space to install them

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound greatI was apprehensive because these speakers were so inexpensive but they sound really great in my master bedroom and master bath.

Dayton Audio CS620EC 6-1/2" 2-Way Enclosed Ceiling Speaker

At 7+ lbs, do you think there will be any problem if I attach them to the standard drop-ceiling tiles found in most commercial buildings? (The tiles are those paper/fiber like stuff that's about .5-.75" thick)

Asked by: andreleblanc
These will be a bit heavy for mounting directly to a standard ceiling tile and will likely cause sagging over time. Since tile bridges are not available for these, I would recommend cutting 1/8"-1/4" HDF into sheets that match the tile size, and then cutting holes in this to act as a bridge.

Is there a title bridge available for this speaker for mounting it in a drop title ceiling?

Asked by: Adamsoundguy
Unfortunately no, we do not have any tile bridges available for this model.

what kind of mounting brackets do theses come with?

Asked by: flor
These have standard "dog-ear" type tabs that grip the back of the drywall when they are screwed down. These do not include any pre construction brackets.

are these angled?

How do you install these to create a good sound stage if they are not angled? Could they work with a 15" sub or would there a "whole" in freq Range?
Asked by: NCaudio2
These are not angled, there isn't anything you can do to aim these unfortunately. They will work fine with a 15" subwoofer, these will play into the low 40's without much of a problem.

What center channel is timber matched?

I am looking to matchDayton Audio CS620EC 6-1/2" 2-Way Enclosed Ceiling Speakerwith a in wall ceiling speaker. Which in wall center channel speaker will timber match these?Thanks
Asked by: rileyman2001
If you are looking to use the CS620EC speakers as front L/R and surrounds the center will not make much difference. The ceiling speakers will have a vastly different frequency response at the listening position the center will likely sound a bit different even if the same speakers are used. I usually recommend in wall speakers for the LCR to combat this, ceiling speakers are fine for surrounds. A nice center I would recommend is below.
