Our take on the Klipsch R-1800-C by Crutchfield's Marshall Chase
Get great sound throughout your home without sacrificing an inch of floor space. The Klipsch® R-1800-C sports an 8" polypropylene woofer for impressive mids and bass, plus a 1" dome tweeter for smooth highs. Use them as surround sound speakers in an all-Klipsch home theater, or install them in pairs for stereo listening with your multi-room audio system. You can paint the grille to blend seamlessly into any room's décor.
An optional in-ceiling bracket is recommended for installing the R-1800-C in new construction.

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.
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.

4 questions already asked
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 ]
Sure, no reason not too. I really enjoy mine for this purpose. [ Steven Oct 08, 2018 ]
Dont remember it being moveable, installed for customer, very impressive speaker [ Gregory Aug 11, 2018 ]
Yes you can pivot the tweeter. They work great! [ Christopher Aug 11, 2018 ]
2 answers 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 ]
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 ]
I don't have any enclosure yet but i intend to.The speakers sound pretty good without an enclosure [ peter Jan 18, 2017 ]
About 5/8". [ MORTEN Sep 09, 2014 ]
Unfortunately, I don't know the answer. We had them ceiling mounted within an average drywall thickness. [ ROBERT Sep 08, 2014 ]
