Product Research


Overview: The Klipsch IC-525-T is a 2-way in-ceiling speaker featuring a coaxially mounted 5-1/4" woofer and a 1" compression tweeter in a steel backcan. The speaker features transformer tap settings for 70, and 100 volt operation along with an 8Ω bypass. Featuring a wider, shorter design to fit low ceilings, the IC-525-T is ideal for hotels, restaurants, airports, churches, and similar applications.

Drivers: The IC-525-T features a 5-1/4" woofer with a 1" titanium diaphragm compression driver on a 3.5" round XT Tractrix horn, delivering a smooth response with constant directivity, all mounted in a ported steel backcan enclosure. This combination delivers high efficiency and performance across the operating bandwidth with a frequency response of 65 Hz to 20 kHz (-4db). Able to handle up to 65 watts RMS and with a sensitivity of 89 dB, the IC-525-T can provide clear powerful sound with a coverage angle of up to105˚.

Enclosure: The IC-525-T is housed in a steel backcan with a Tractrix ported ABS front baffle. The Tractrix port helps provide deeper, fuller bass with less compression and distortion while adding musicality with a bass response down to 65 Hz (-4 dB). The speaker includes a painted steel-mesh grill that can be painted to match the room color. The IC-525-T enclosure carries both UL2043 and UL1480 UL certifications.

Mounting: Installation of the speaker is done blind-mount using a rotating cam mounting system. Four cam-assemblies come pre-mounted around the perimeter of the speaker, and once the speaker is slid into the ceiling opening 4 Phillips-head screws on the front of the speaker are tightened, expanding out the mounting arms providing tension on the backside of the mounting surface. The IC-525-T requires a 9.125" diameter cutout and at least 8.750" of mounting depth. They can also be installed in drop-ceilings using the included tile bridge mounting hardware. An additional attachment point is provided on the back of the speaker for an additional safety line.

70/100 Volt: The IC-525-T can be used in either 70 or 100 volt applications and includes an 8Ω bypass selection. A tap selection dial on the front of the speaker baffle allows for easy configuration without having to remove the speaker from the ceiling. The following tap settings are available:

  • 70 Volt: 3.75W, 7.5W, 15W, and 30W
  • 100 Volt: 7.5W, 15W, and 30W
  • 8Ω

Terminals: A 3-terminal barrier strip is provided for wiring connections. One terminal provides the positive connection for 70 and 100 volt applications, one for the positive if using as an 8Ω speaker, and a common negative terminal. Each terminal can accommodate speaker wire up to 12 gauge in size. A metal cover-plate with cable-clamp are provided to protect the terminal strip.
