Aspire™ In-Ceiling Speakers
The product of expert Crestron® audio engineering,
Aspire™ speakers deliver high-end performance for
demanding residential installations. Select materials
and a refined appearance underscore the
meticulous design behind each model. The result is
a complete line of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers
worthy of a place in every room of the finest custom
home.
The Aspire IC8DT model is a single in-ceiling
loudspeaker featuring an 8 inch dual voice coil
woofer and dual 1 inch dome tweeters. It is
designed to produce stereo sound in the space of a
single speaker, perfect for bathrooms and other
small spaces.
Paint the Speaker Grilles
Speaker grille painting should be done prior to mounting.
1. Carefully remove the material on the underside of the grilles and set them aside for
reinstallation. It may be necessary to use a knife or other sharp instrument to free an edge
of the material so it can be peeled away. Use care to avoid cutting or tearing the material.
2. Dry brush or lightly spray the surface to be painted. Use care to avoid clogging the holes in
the grilles.
3. Once the paint is dry, reinstall the material to the underside.

Install Cables
Run the cables from the audio source to the speaker location following all appropriate local
codes. Strip the ends of the speaker cable wires 1/4” to 1/2” (6 mm to 12 mm) and twist the
exposed strands.
Mount/Remove Speakers

The in-ceiling speakers include three toggle clamps that simplify the mounting process. If the
grilles are mounted on the speakers, remove them before proceeding. (Refer to
“Install/Remove Grilles”, below.)
Installation
Determine Placement In Room
Speaker placement is largely a matter of personal preference. However, placing the speaker
near a corner or wall will extend its low frequency response.
Prepare Mounting Holes
Before finalizing the speaker location, check to make sure there are no fixtures, pipes, air
ducts, joists, or other possible obstructions. Use a good quality stud finder to locate joists.
If there is no access to the area above the ceiling, and it is uncertain that there are no
obstructions, carefully drill a small hole just through the ceiling near the middle of the proposed
speaker location(s) and use one of the commercially available inspection devices designed for
this purpose, or do one of the following:
●
Use a piece of stiff wire, bent into an “L” shape, with one end long enough to explore an
area equal to the size of the speaker with the toggle clamps extended. Insert the wire into
the hole, make sure it rotates freely in a complete circle and that there is sufficient depth,
1. Connect the speaker cable wires to the spring terminals by pressing the top of the
terminals down and inserting the exposed strands into the hole. Make sure that left and
right channels are connected to the left and right tweeter terminals, respectively, and that
the + wires go to the + (red coded) terminals, and the – wires go to the – (black coded)
terminals.
Use a drywall saw to cut a small hole at a 45° angle toward the inside of the hole. An
angle cut simplifies repair since the removed piece can be reinserted to help plug the hole.
3. Speaker removal is accomplished by reversing the procedures given in steps 1 and 2
above.
a. Loosen the front screws to unclamp the speaker. Continue to loosen the screws until
the toggle clamps rotate inward.
b. When the speaker is loose, carefully remove it from the opening.
c.
Disconnect the wires from the terminals.
Install/Remove Grilles
The zero-bezel frameless grilles are held in place by powerful magnets. To remove the grilles,
grip the edges and pull away from the speaker.
If there are no obstructions, use the supplied template to trace outlines of the mounting holes
on the ceiling. Cut the final mounting holes at a 90° angle to the ceiling.

2. With the toggle clamps turned inward, insert the speaker into the opening. As the three
screws on the front of the speaker are tightened, the toggle clamps first rotate into
clamping position (refer to the figure to the right) and then begin holding the speaker to
the ceiling. Tighten the screws until the speaker is secured; do not overtighten.
