loudspeaker utilizes a two-way driver design with a single 1" silk soft-dome
tweeter and a 8" polycellulose long-throw woofer with rubber surround.
Computer-optimized driver positioning and a precision crossover network
result in ideal performance and lifelike soundstage imaging.
High Definition Imaging (HDI) Waveguide: The JBL Arena
8IC in-ceiling speaker's tweeter incorporates a High Definition Imaging (HDI)
Waveguide. This High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide technology takes its
cues from the legendary JBL M2 Master Reference Monitor. The HDI waveguide
aids in the tweeter's ability to produce a lifelike soundstage with accuracy
Zero-Bezel Magnetic Grille: The zero-bezel magnetic grille is
nearly invisible (protruding only 0.25" from ceiling), seamlessly blending into
your room's decor. The
grille is also paintable for an even more seamless look.
In-Ceiling Installation: The JBL Arena 8IC in-ceiling loudspeaker
offers a sturdy, reliable installation design that fits ceilings from 0.5" to 2" thick.
Specialty locking clamps secure the in-ceiling speaker in place and are designed to
minimize vibration. There needs to be at least 1" between the edge of the
supplied mounting template and any rafters or other obstructions behind the
ceiling, so the speaker's locking mechanism will have room to engage fully.
