About the Klipsch CDT-3650-C-II
Treat yourself to top-notch sound with a speaker that blends seamlessly into your home's décor. The Klipsch® CDT-3650 II installs in your ceiling, so it won't take up one inch of floor space. And its high-tech design and solid construction make it a great choice for movie and music lovers alike. You can use multiple CDT-3650 IIs for surround sound in an all-Klipsch home theater, or install them in pairs for stereo listening with your multi-room audio system. Either way, you'll enjoy crisp, clear Klipsch sound without the clutter of conventional speakers.
Ready, aim, music!
The '3650-C-II's 1" aluminum tweeter gives you 100-degree dispersion, and it swivels, so you can aim the sound precisely where you need it to go. You can even rotate the 6-1/2" woofer a full 360 degrees and tilt it up to 15 degrees in any direction. This flexibility gives you full, detailed sound no matter where you place the speaker. Plus, a tweeter attenuation switch lets you adjust the sound to suit your personal taste and your room's acoustics.
Horn technology for room-filling sound
Because high-frequency sounds are more directional than bass frequencies, it's especially important to target them right toward your ears. Klipsch places their tweeter inside a flared opening, known as a "horn." This design brings out details in everything you listen to, while reducing reflections that can color the sound.
Slimmer chance of being seen
The CDT-3650 II keeps a low profile with its SlimTrim™ grille. The visible frame size is reduced by 90% and grille depth is reduced by 80% over previous designs, for a nearly flush finish that blends in beautifully. The paintable aluminum, magnetic grille attaches securely with ease to virtually eliminate resonant distortion.
An optional in-ceiling bracket is recommended for installing the CDT-3650-C-II in new construction.

Klipsch CDT-3650-C-II reviews
Very high quality speaker with awesome sound.
Pros: Detailed sound and definition
Cons: May be a little bright for some listeners.

The speakers sound fantastic, are easy to install and look very clean in the ceiling. The adjustable tweeter and sub make a big difference and in my opinion make them one of the best options for an Atmos setup. The ability to ensure the sound is being directly right at the listening position offers an exception Atmos experience.
Pros: Clean, easy to install, adjustable tweeter and sub.
Cons: none to note

I purchased 2 of these speakers to be placed in ceiling for Dolby atoms setup. Since my ceiling is slightly angled up these speakers allowed me to angle both tweeter n bass drivers to optimize the sound back to the seating area. The sound is crisp n clear. I am most impressed with these ceiling speakers. I am using klipsch inwall speakers for my 7.1 system and the sound is incredible..
Pros: Sound and ease of installation.

I used 4x of these speakers as my ceiling installed Dolby Atmos speakers. These speakers sound GREAT! I have other Klipsch speakers in my system, so they complement the others to give a full rich and enveloping sound. I have been sold on Klipsch now for over 1 year and these are my third set of Klipsch speakers to add to my systems. There is no going back for me, ever.
Pros: Easy to install after making ceiling holes and pre-installing the speaker cables. High sensitivity, thus they require less power to drive them. Magnetic, paintable grills that are easy to put on and to remove. The speakers also have both aimable woofer and horn tweeter.

I had a home theater expert pre-wire the room and then (after construction was complete) install the speakers. It is a beautiful installation. Installer said that he loved these Klipsch in-wall speakers because the installation was so easy because the grill is magnetic and installs effortlessly. After seeing what is involved, I really think I could have installed them myself. But I love them because the look perfect. Very little of the speaker grill projects from the ceiling and the grill is very pretty. Sound is great, too. You'll love these.
Pros: Ease of installation, great looks, great sound.

I was hesitant because of the price. They are well worth the money. You can't go wrong with these. If you don't like these, you can't be pleased!
Pros: Look great. Magnetic covers. Easy to install anywhere.

I recently purchased these as the solution to wanting good rear surround speakers without having anywhere to place floor standing speakers. They are driven by a SONY STR- DN840 and they sound fantastic. Installation was a snap and it was literally just cutting a hole and turning a screwdriver a few turns and done! I love how the driver and tweeter can be individually adjusted so that you can aim at the listening "sweet spot". Since these are surrounds I can't comment on their "standalone" performance, but they are clear, crisp, and handle loud without complaining. They look like they belong, blending into the ceiling without issue.
Pros: Easy installation, directional driver / tweeter, crisp clear sound at all volume levels.

Controlled Dispersion Technology (CDT): The Klipsch CDT-3650-C II in-ceiling speaker features a patent-pending gimbal mechanism, known as Controlled Dispersion Technology (CDT). The tweeter and woofer are independently adjustable, allowing both the high and low frequencies to be directed toward the listening area.
High Efficiency: The high-efficiency design of the Klipsch in-ceiling speakers allows you to get much more output than most in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Due to the long speaker wire runs that are common in whole-house audio systems, the power coming from the amplifier is significantly reduced by the time it reaches the speakers. The 93dB efficiency of this speaker means it will play much louder at low power than other less-efficient speakers.
2-Way Driver Design: The Klipsch CDT-3650-C II uses a high-quality 1" aluminum dome compression driver (tweeter) mated to an exclusive Tractrix Horn, combined with a 6.5" copper-colored IMG (injection-molded graphite) woofer in a 2-way design.
- Tweeter: There is a 1" aluminum dome tweeter mated to a swiveling 100° Tractrix Horn. The swiveling horn design dramatically increases efficiency by enabling the speaker to produce more output using less energy. The horn-loaded tweeter allows you to point the sound to a specific location, and has more controlled directivity than a conventional dome tweeter.
- Woofer: The 6.5" copper-colored IMG (injection-molded graphite) woofer can rotate a full 360°, and then shift 15° in any direction. The solid Injection Molded Graphite woofer cone has been strengthened for even more accurate bass reproduction.
Speaker Terminals: The speaker has a pair of spring clips that can accept up to 12-gauge wire or pin connectors.
ABS Basket/Frame: The CDT-3650-C II has a sturdy ABS basket and frame. The frame can be painted to match any decor.
SlimTrim Magnetic Grille: With an all new grille, the visible frame size is reduced by 90% and grille depth is reduced by 80% over the previous design, for a more edge-to-edge consistent look that blends in with the wall more attractively. The new aluminum, paintable, magnetic grille attaches tightly and securely with ease to virtually eliminate resonant distortion.
Power Specifications Note: The manufacturer has specified the maximum power handling of this speaker as 50 watts RMS (200 W Peak). Klipsch has also published a recommended amplifier power specification as 100 watts.
Installation: The speaker can be installed in new or existing construction. It requires a cutout diameter of 8.1875". For new construction, purchase of the IK-650-C installation kit (714IK650C, sold separately) is highly recommended. For existing construction, the speaker should be installed in drywall at least 3/8" thick. It can also be installed in a drop ceiling (2' x 2' or 2' x 4' ceiling tiles only). In both cases, to maximize the acoustic performance of the in-ceiling speakers, Klipsch recommends you replace the original mounting panel with 1/2" or 3/4" plywood or MDF. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout.
