Product Details

Dayton Audio ME820C 8" Coaxial Ceiling Speaker Pair

Fill your home with rich, audiophile-quality sound from Dayton Audio's Micro-Edge Series coaxial ceiling speakers, while offering a modern, stealth look for today's contemporary décor.

Tough woven Kevlar cone woofers were selected for their inherent transient response quickness and ability to convey a warm response in the critical midrange, while delivering a bass punch that is missing from most ceiling speakers.

1" silk dome tweeters provide pristine clarity for the top end of the frequency response spectrum. Additionally, ME820C ceiling speakers may be used as rear and/or side channel speakers in surround sound applications. Two full sets of grills, one round and one square, are included.

All Dayton Audio Micro-Edge Series speakers are timbre matched to provide the best possible home theater experience.

Dayton Audio ME820C 8" Coaxial Ceiling Speaker Pair
Dayton Audio ME820C 8" Coaxial Ceiling Speaker Pair is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great productI purchased these speakers for my living room system. I have 16' ceilings, so I wanted to make sure I had enough speaker to perform. I installed four of these with the baffles to hold back the installation, and they sound great.. I would recommend these to anyone that is looking to do the job themselves and save the money these 'audio installers' charge you for such a simple job.

Do you have a rough in bracket available for these?

Asked by: Ict5
I am sorry, we do not currently offer a preconstruction bracket for these speakers at this time.

I already have 8 inch speakers mounted using baffles. Will these speakers mount using my baffles and the existing holes?

Asked by: ClydeW
These will not interchange with a typical 8 inch ceiling speaker. They require a 10 inch cutout in the ceiling and do not require additional baffles or grilles.

A good amplifier for this would be the AudioSource AMP100 which has two inputs and can drive four 8 ohm speakers.
