About the JBL Stage 260CDT

Archer A.

Stereo sound from a single speaker

JBL's Stage 260CDT speaker features a versatile in-ceiling design that lends itself well to custom installations in smaller rooms and awkward spaces like hallways. It uses a stout woofer and two acoustically optimized tweeters to deliver exceptional detail and accuracy in your tunes. Best of all, since it has stereo inputs, you'll hear both channels of a stereo mix from a single speaker mounting location.

High-performance drivers

The 260CDT has twin 3/4" aluminum dome tweeters that are equipped with an acoustic lens that smooths out their sound. A 6-1/2" polycellulose woofer delivers smooth mids and bass. The drivers are set inside an acoustically optimized baffle that reduces diffraction and other types of sound-muddying distortion.

Designed for easier installation in your ceiling

This speaker uses JBL's XL-2 installation system. The rear legs can attach to ceilings up to 2" thick, giving you plenty of versatility when it comes to placement. Once installed, the included metal, zero-bezel grille seamlessly hides the speaker inside your ceiling.

Features

Stereo Driver Design: Thanks to this in-ceiling speaker's two tweeters and dual inputs, the JBL Stage 2 Series 260CDT can act as a single stereo speaker. The dual tweeters in a stereo faceplate deliver left and right channel highs, while a dual voice coil woofer automatically sums left and right channel mids and bass - giving you lifelike stereo imaging.

  • Dual 1" Aluminum Dome Tweeters with Acoustic Lens & Waveguide: The JBL Stage 260CDT in-ceiling speaker features two 1" aluminum dome tweeters with an acoustic lens and High Definition Imaging (HDI) waveguide for lifelike high frequencies with clarity & accuracy.
  • 6.5" Polycellulose Woofer with Rubber Surround: The JBL Stage 2 Series in-ceiling loudspeaker houses a 6.5" ribbed polycellulose woofer with rubber surround that deliver deep, signature JBL bass performance. The polycellulose woofer is ribbed for improved strength that delivers more accurate bass with less distortion.

High-Quality Crossover Network: The JBL Stage 2 Series 260CDT incorporates a high-quality crossover network that features premium air-core inductors and mylar cap capacitor crossover network components to ensure that sound remains dynamic at all listening levels.

Spring Post Terminals: The JBL Stage 2 Series in-ceiling loudspeaker is outfitted with two sets of nickel-plated spring-post terminals to connect to the left & right stereo channels of your stereo receiver or integrated amplifier. The spring-post terminals will accommodate bare wire (up to 12AWG), pin-connectors, and banana plugs (single or dual).

  • For wire lengths of less than 50', use at least 16-gauge speaker wire.
  • For wire lengths between 50' and 100', use at least 14-gauge speaker wire.
  • For wire lengths of greater than 100', use at least 12-gauge speaker wire.

Note: Your speaker wire must comply with all local building and safety codes for use in in-ceiling applications.

In-Ceiling Installation: The Stage 2 Series in-ceiling speaker utilizes JBL's XL-2 bracket system that is suitable for installation in drywall, plywood, and other ceiling material that is 0.5" to 1.75" thick. The XL-2 bracket system's special mechanical grip design minimizes vibration and improves sound reproduction.

  • The Stage 2 in-ceiling speaker requires a circular (round) cutout that measures 8.0" (diameter) x 4.125" (depth). The outer dimensions of the speaker 9.25" (diameter) x 0.375" (depth).
  • Make sure to allow at least 0.75" between the edge of the cutout and any obstructions behind the ceiling, so the speaker's locking mechanism will have room to engage fully.
  • Perform an obstruction survey to be sure that there are no studs, lengths of conduit, pipes, heating ducts or air returns in the ceiling cavity that will interfere with the speaker.

Zero-Bezel Profile: The JBL Stage 2 260CDT in-ceiling speaker features a visually discrete zero-bezel profile that blends into almost any room. The included grille attaches magnetically and is paintable. The grille only protrude 0.375" from the ceiling.
