High-performance home theater or stereo music no longer needs to mean sacrificing lots of space to bulky speakers. Niles designed their impressive DS8HD 8" in-ceiling speaker to deliver satisfying performance. Install one each for your left, right and center channels in a custom-installed surround sound system, or use a pair for a music system that has low visual impact, but big sonic impact.
Niles' Directed Soundfield™ technology lets you pivot and aim both the woofer and the tweeter/midrange array for more precise localization of movie sound effects. A new patent pending pivot mechanism adjusts smoothly and holds the drivers securely in position. There's also a "dialogue" switch that enhances vocal presence when using the DS8HD as your center-channel speaker. And there's another switch that lets you tone down the tweeter if you prefer.
Three-way design featuring IMPACT driver technology
The DS8HD employs a large 8" IMPACT (Improved Aluminum Ceramic Technology) wooferfor rich, full bass. A 1-1/2"dome midrange provides enhanced detail, great for movie dialogue and vocals. The 1" IMPACT dome tweeter hasa vapor-deposited ceramic nano-coating to move unwanted resonances outside of the audible range, for better clarity. Its zero-diffraction assembly pivots up to 15° (30° when the woofer is also pivoted to the maximum). Top it off with the included magnetic snap-on grille and you're good to go. And with its weather-resistant design, this speaker can safely be installed in humid or moist environments. It's even covered by Niles' lifetime warranty.
