Innovative design for satisfying sound

The CM8MP employs an 8" polypropylene woofer. Thanks to an integrated woofer/baffle design, it has roughly the same outer diameter as many 6-1/2" speakers from other manufacturers. The extra woofer cone surface area results in richer, fuller bass. The woofer's  butyl rubber surround damps unwanted resonance and provides exceptional durability. A 1" fluid-cooled UltraSilk® dome tweeter offers smooth, detailed highs, plus you can pivot the tweeter for more direct sound in your preferred listening area. Top it off with the included magnetically attached grille and you're good to go. And with weather-resistant design, this speaker can go most places you'd like it to, indoors or out. Plus, it's covered by Niles' lifetime warranty.

Features

2-Way Driver Design: The CM8MP has a light, but strong 8" polypropylene cone woofer. The integrated woofer/baffle design enhances the low frequency response, and allows you to mount an 8" speaker in locations where many competitor's speakers with the same frame diameter can only use a 6.5" driver. The 1" fluid-cooled UltraSilk soft dome tweeter provides clear, detailed highs and a focused high frequency sound. The proprietary bridge-mounted pivoting tweeter adjustment lets you aim the sound up to 20 degrees in any direction.

Applications: The Niles CM8MP in-ceiling loudspeaker can be utilized in a stereo, home theater, or distributed audio application. In a home theater setup, the CM8PR can be used as a front, center, and/or surround channel speaker.

Weather-Resistant: The frame, speaker, and grille are weather-resistant, so you can install the speaker in moist environments, including bathrooms and outdoors under eaves.

Mounting Options: The patent-pending spring tensioned mounting clamps permit quick installation and compensate for uneven mounting surfaces and varied environmental conditions. The Niles CM8MP requires a round, circular cutout in the ceiling (0.5" to 0.625" thick) that measures 9.75" in diameter and 4.75 " in depth. You'll also need approximately 1" of clearance around the cutout behind the ceiling to accommodate the mounting clamps.

MicroThin Grille: The magnetically attached MicroThin grille installs quickly and provides a low-profile look. The MicroThin grille ensures a clean, virtually invisible appearance that blends with the room's aesthetics. It only protrudes 0.25" from the ceiling. The MicroThin grille is white in color, but can be painted to match the color of your ceiling.

Spring-Clip Terminals: The Niles CM8MP is outfitted with a set of spring-clip terminals that will accommodate up to 12AWG speaker wire or pin-connectors. Use 16AWG speaker wire for wire lengths of 80' or less, 14AWG speaker wire for wire lengths of 81'-200', and 12AWG speaker for wire lengths of more than 200'.
