The IB8C 8″ ceiling speaker pair is designed for those who require higher volume levels, or who enjoy a bit more low-end potency in their music and movies. The 8″ woofer plays louder and lower, making the IB8C ideal for rooms where a subwoofer is not desired, and for rooms with higher ceilings.
With a larger 8″ woven Kevlar-fiber woofer, the IB8C reaches lower frequencies than a typical 6-1/2″ ceiling speaker, and it can do so while handling more power so you enjoy a more immersive audio experience. The same distinctive midrange clarity is present as our other speakers, for supreme intelligibility of vocals and dialogue, but the 8″ woofer can dig a full 20 Hz deeper than its 6-1/2″ counterparts, lending more authority and heartiness to your sound. The 1″ silk dome tweeter adds just the right balance of high end sparkle to make everything sound crisp and airy, but not at all too bright.
And, just as the rest of the family of Franklin Audio speakers, the IB8C uses an edge so thin, it virtually melts into your décor. The grills can be painted to match or highlight your room’s palette, but really, their unobtrusive white color is quite appealing on its own.
