Features

In-ceiling Design The Klipsch R-1650-CSM in-ceiling speaker can be used in bathrooms, closets, hallways, or anywhere multiple speakers would not be practical.

Stereo Input: The R-1650-CSM has dual spring clip terminals to accept signals from both left and right channels. The dual voice coil woofer sums the low frequencies from the stereo input to mono. The upper frequencies are handled by individually for the two channels by a coaxially mounted dual-tweeter array, to preserve the stereo effect. The terminals accept up to 12-gauge speaker wire.

Drivers: The R-1650-CSM is equipped with the following drivers:

  • Tweeters: two 1" polymer dome tweeters
  • Woofer: a 6-1/2" polypropylene dual voice coil woofer

Basket/Frame: The R-1650-CSM has a sturdy ABS basket and frame. The frame can be painted to match any decor (a clear paint mask is supplied to protect the drivers from overspray). The aluminum mesh grille is also paintable.

Power Specifications Note: The manufacturer has specified the maximum power handling of this speaker as 35 watts RMS (140 W Peak). Klipsch has also published a recommended amplifier power specification as 70 watts.

Mounting Options

Installation: The speaker requires a cutout diameter of 8.33". 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.

Q
How do you wire this speaker (R1650-CSM)? I have 2-conduit speaker wire coming from my pre-wired ceiling. This speaker has 4 wire clips. Is there a way to wire this speaker?

It's a stereo speaker, meaning you should have 2 different speaker wire leads going into it. I assume it would work if you only plugged it into one side, but it might not sound as good. Your pre-wired spot is for a single speaker, not a stereo one like this. This speaker is really more for having one speaker on a porch that sounds like a stereo pair.
