Definitive Technology Dymension CI DC-80 MAX SUR In-ceiling surround speaker with dual tweeters

Dual pivoting 1" tweeters and a pivoting 8" woofer direct dynamic overhead effects toward your listening area.

Kramer's first-hand experience with Definitive in-ceiling speakers

My own home theater uses custom-installed Definitive Technology speakers for the surround channels. And let me tell you, it is a pleasure to experience such realistic sound effects without bulky box speakers near the couch, dog, and kids.

Tool-free mounting for a smooth installation

Def Tech designed a simple two-piece mounting system with pivoting "dog" arms that makes speaker installation simple. The paintable, low-profile grille and hidden flange allow the DC-80 MAX SUR to disappear within your room.

Check out our guide to installing in-ceiling speakers, along with our selection of in-wall speaker wire.
