Features

2-Way Driver Design: The JBL C-series C8IC in-ceiling loudspeaker employs a 2-way driver design with a 0.5" soft-dome polymer tweeter and one 8" poly cone woofer for powerful, room-filling JBL Signature sound. The JBL C-series in-ceiling loudspeaker delivers high power handling and high sensitivity for full, dynamic, and wide dispersion sound.

Applications: The JBL C-series C8IC can be used in a distributed audio application, as well as a 2ch stereo speaker setup. It can also be utilized in a home theater application as a rear surround channel, surround back channel, or overhead channel.

Moisture Resistant: Built to last with quality materials, including a moisture-resistant design, make the C8IC in-ceiling loudspeaker perfect for bathroom installations. 

Paintable Grille: The JBL C-series in-ceiling speaker comes with with a paintable grille to blend into your wall and decor. A paint shield is included. The grille protrudes 0.6875" from the ceiling.

In-Ceiling Installation: The JBL C-series in-ceiling loudspeaker is designed for standard drywall ceilings and drop ceilings with at least 3/8" thick wall material. In drop ceiling installations, JBL recommends to replace the ceiling tile with plywood or medium density fiberboard to prevent sagging ceiling tiles. Standard "dog-leg" locking mechanisms are utilized to secure the speaker in the ceiling.

  • The C8IC requires a 9.375" (diameter) x 3.3125" (depth) cutout. It has an overall outer diameter of 10.75".
  • Make sure to leave at least 1" of open space (without obstruction) around the cutout above the ceiling, so the speaker's locking mechanisms will have room to engage fully.
  • Be sure that there are no studs, lengths of conduit, pipes, heating ducts or air returns in the ceiling cavity that will interfere with the speaker.

Spring Clip Terminals: The JBL C8IC is outfitted with a set of spring-clip terminals to attach your speaker wire. The spring-clip terminals will accommodate bare wire (up to 12AWG) and pin-connectors.
