Features

Two-Way Design: The Klipsch R-1800-C in-ceiling speaker employs a 8" polymer-cone woofer and a large motor structure for high sensitivity. A coaxially mounted 1" polymer-dome tweeter distributes smooth, clear highs over a wide area. The Klipsch R-1800-C in-ceiling speaker brings dynamic acoustic performance to both home and commercial environments.

Basket/Frame: The R-1800-C 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.

Spring-Clip Terminals: The Klipsch R-1800-C in-ceiling speaker features two spring-clip terminals which will accept either bare speaker wire or pin-connectors. The spring-clip speaker terminals are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.

Power Specifications Note: The manufacturer has specified the maximum power handling of this speaker as 40 watts RMS (160 W Peak). Klipsch has also published a recommended amplifier power specification as 80 watts.

Mounting Options

Installation: The speaker can be installed in new or existing construction. It requires a cutout diameter of 9.8125" and a mounting depth of 4.3125". For new construction, purchase of the IK-800-C installation kit (714IK800C, 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.

5 questions already asked

Q
which enclosure do you recommend for those speakers if under attic? if DIY, which materials to use?
[ Diego E  Mar 29, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
Hi Diego, I mounted mine in the basement ceiling (under living room floor) during a full house renovation, so I had the convenience fabricating enclosures between the floor joists.
[ Andrew  Mar 29, 2019 ]
A
I did not use an enclosure. My installation is in a ceiling as surround speakers, with floor above. I also filled space with fiberglass insulation. Works great.
[ Kevin  Mar 29, 2019 ]
A
I put a screen in the area to keep insulation off the speaker. They sound great!
[ KEITH M  Mar 29, 2019 ]
Q
can these speakers be used for side and/or rear surround?
[ Akram  Oct 08, 2018 ]
2 answers
A
Honestly, i did not use them for that. i mounted them for music around the home. However, they would work great for rear behind "height" spreakers. they are great sounding! J
[ Jeff  Oct 08, 2018 ]
A
Sure, no reason not too. I really enjoy mine for this purpose.
[ Steven  Oct 08, 2018 ]
Q
Is it possible to aim or swivel the tweeter on these to target the sound more precisely to the seating position, for Atmos overhead?
[ Brian78tx  Aug 11, 2018 ]

A
Dont remember it being moveable, installed for customer, very impressive speaker
[ Gregory  Aug 11, 2018 ]
A
Yes you can pivot the tweeter. They work great!
[ Christopher  Aug 11, 2018 ]
Q
How do these speakers sound without any enclosure behind them? I had a pair of Polks that sounded like trash without any box behind them (very large attic over it, no "baffle" from floor of the room above it, or a shallow attic). Is there a recommended enclosure size?
[ Christopher  Jan 18, 2017 ]

A
I put a screen in the area to keep insulation off the speaker. They sound great!
[ KEITH M  Mar 29, 2019 ]
A
I made enclosures out of the boxes they came in and put loose insulation around the outside of the boxes. They sound great.
[ Dennis  Jan 18, 2017 ]
A
I don't have any enclosure yet but i intend to.The speakers sound pretty good without an enclosure
[ peter  Jan 18, 2017 ]
Q
What is the maximum thickness the ceiling can be for mounting these speakers?
[ Jason  Sep 05, 2014 ]
2 answers
A
About 5/8".
[ MORTEN  Sep 09, 2014 ]
A
Unfortunately, I don't know the answer. We had them ceiling mounted within an average drywall thickness.
