Kinetic Stereo Ceiling Speaker
The Kinetik KISP E160-LPS ceiling speakers’ combination of excellent audio and attractive price point is why we use them as our go-to ceiling speaker of choice. The low profile construction with full surface speaker grille provides the professional finish demanded in current architectural design. They are designed for installation in ceilings, or other suitable surfaces such as plasterboard walls. They are a three way array design with 160mm Polypropylene bass/mid driver and two 25mm mylar dome tweeters, for flexibility in sound projection.
The tweeters can be angled 30 degrees in any direction from the centre thanks to their ball and socket design. A single KISP-E160-LPS speaker has a stereo input and provides a stereo high frequency output, ideal for use in hallways or smaller rooms such as bathrooms.
The Kinetik KISP E160 Low Profile speakers provide a subtle but high quality source of music in the ceiling. These are proper audiophile grade loudspeakers. Easy to install, just cut a 204mm diameter hole, insert the speaker, connect the cable to the push button terminals and tighten up the dogleg clamps via the four screws in the surround.
The grilles are held in place magnetically by high power magnets. There’s a choice of interchangeable and paintable round or square grilles (square available separately), to help blend into the design of any surroundings. Out of the box the grilles are white to match the majority of ceilings.
Recommended speaker cable is Linn K20 available here !
