Enjoy stereo sound without sacrificing an inch of floor space with the Klipsch® R-2800-CSM. Its 8" polypropylene woofer pumps out rich bass, while its two 1" silk dome tweeters faithfully reproduce both left and right channels of a stereo signal. It easily installs in your ceiling, so it's a great option for places in your home where you want stereo sound, but don't have a lot of space. Put one in your kitchen for background music while preparing meals, or one in your den to fill the room with your favorite tunes when entertaining guests. And you can paint the grille to blend seamlessly into any room's décor.

An optional in-ceiling bracket is recommended for installing the R-2800-CSM in new construction (or a room that's undergoing major renovation).

    Mounting Options


    Stereo Input: The Klipsch R-2800-CSM stereo input in-ceiling speaker can be used in bathrooms, hallways, or anywhere mounting multiple speakers is not practical. The dual spring clip terminals accept signals from both left and right channels; the dual voice coil woofer sums the low frequencies from the stereo input to mono and the coaxially mounted dual-tweeter array reproduces the left and right channels independently.

    High Efficiency: The high-efficiency design of the Klipsch speakers offers more output than most in-wall and in-ceiling models. Due to the long speaker wire runs common in whole-house audio systems, the power coming from the amplifier is often significantly reduced by the time it reaches the speakers. The 94 dB efficiency of this speaker means it will play louder at low power than less efficient speakers.

    Speaker Terminals: The speaker has two pair of spring clip terminals for stereo input; they accept pin connectors or bare wire up to 12 gauge, Klipsch recommends 18 gauge minimum.

    Basket/Frame: The R-2800-CSM has a sturdy ABS frame. The frame can be painted to match any decor (a clear paint mask is supplied to protect the drivers from overspray). The metal mesh grille is also paintable.

    Mounting Options

    Installation: The speaker can be installed in new or existing construction; it requires an opening 9.75" in diameter. For new construction, purchase of the IK-800-C installation kit (item number 714IK800C) is recommended. For existing construction, the mounting surface should be at least 3/8" thick. When mounting into a drop ceiling, Klipsch recommends replacing the original panel with 1/2" or 3/4" plywood or MDF. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout.
