Definitive Technology DT 8R In-Ceiling Speakers
Definitive Technology’s DI 8R speaker installs flush in your ceiling. With its paintable, low-profile grille and hidden flange, it’s practically invisible.
Disappearing In-Wall Design
The DI 8.5R features Definitive Technology’s Disappearing In-Wall Design. The mounting flange thickness of the in-wall/in-ceiling loudspeaker is no more than 2.5mm (0.099″) and is completely covered by the grille that stands a mere 3.5mm (approx 0.125″) from the wall surface.
Pivoting Aluminum Dome Tweeter with Waveguide
The DI Series in-wall/in-ceiling loudspeaker uses Definitive Technology’s proprietary ceramic-coated annealed aluminum 1″ dome tweeter. The DI 35R tweeter is post mounted, and the tweeter housing is specially smoothed and shaped to use it as an extremely effective low-diffraction waveguide. The aluminum dome tweeter features a pivoting design which allows you to focus the sound toward or away from your listening area depending on the application.
The DI 8.5R uses a 8″ BDSS driver for wide-bandwidth accurate frequency response, broad dispersion, low distortion, and maximum detail retrieval. The 8″ BDSS driver cone is supported by specially tuned soft rubber surrounds at both the outer and inner edges.
Linkwitz-Riley Crossover Network
The Definitive Technology DI 8.5R’s second order (12dB/octave) Linkwitz-Riley crossover offers a smooth frequency and phase transition from driver to tweeter for natural midrange response and excellent off-axis performance.
The Environmental EQ switch (on top-frame of speaker) provides a 1dB broad bandwidth tweeter output lift or cut to compensate for highly absorptive or reflective acoustic environments.
Definitive Technology DI 8R Rough-In Bracket – Pair
These pre-construction brackets are designed for Definitive Technology DI 8R in-ceiling speakers. Use the adjustable arms to attach the bracket to studs or joists before the drywall goes up.
The center rings are fabricated from heavy duty painted stamped steel. There are no sharp metal edges to cut an installer’s hands and they are ultra rigid, so that when drywall is laid over and cut the brackets will not bend or break. The center ring requires a 8.8125″ diameter cutout.
The metal mesh mounting arms snap onto the center ring in a variety of positions to cover almost any installation. The wings can be attached with nails, staples or screws; and can be bent and easily trimmed with tin snips. They are also thin enough to make stud notching simple. The wire tie loop easily breaks away when the speaker is installed.
