Our take on the Energy EAS-8C pair

by Marshall Chase
Energy

If you're looking for deep bass and crystal-clear highs from your in-ceiling speakers, the Energy EAS-8C are just the ticket. Energy's wide-dispersion design gives you room-filling sound. They make a great choice as stealthy surround speakers or to bring music alive through a multi-room audio system. You'll hear musical nuances in your favorite recordings, and each soft whisper of dialogue and the echoing roll of thunder from movie soundtracks. You can even paint the included grilles to perfectly match your décor.

Features

Drivers: The Energy EAS-8C in-ceiling speakers are equipped with the following drivers:

  • Tweeter: 1" aluminum dome tweeter
  • Woofer: 8" Injection-molded Homopolymer woofer

Surround: The woofer uses a NBR (Nitrile-Butadiene-Rubber) / SBR (Styrene-Butadiene-Rubber) surround.

Speaker Terminals: The speaker has a pair of spring clip terminals that can accept pin connectors or bare wire up to 12-gauge.

Break-In Period: Energy recommends that you play the EAS-8C for a 50 to 100 hour break-in period before playing at high volume and making final sound adjustments. This is easily done by putting your compact disc player on repeat mode while playing a CD with a wide dynamic range at normal listening levels.

Mounting Options

Installation: The speakers can be installed in new or existing construction; each speaker requires a cutout of 9-13/16", and is held in place with four plastic mounting clamps. The required depth to install the speaker is 3-1/4" from the mounting surface (this includes the thickness of the drywall). Behind the opening there must be a 7/8" clearance around the speaker to accommodate the mounting clamps. Speakers should be installed in drywall at least 3/8" thick. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout.

Paintable: Both the bezel and aluminum grille can be painted to match the ceiling; a cardboard paint mask is included.
