A pair of JBL® SP8CII in-ceiling loudspeakers offers any home true JBL-quality sound, yet without taking up valuable floor and shelf space. The SP8CII’s 8-inch (200-millimeter) titanium-laminate woofer delivers exceptional bass, while a swivel-mounted, titanium-laminate tweeter produces accurate, clear high-frequency output. A proprietary waveguide and 100 watts of peak power handling ensure that the SP8CII distributes sound evenly and smoothly. Movies sound more enveloping within your home theater, and your favorite music comes alive throughout the house. Shallow mounting depths increase your installation options; and the SP8CII’s paintable frame and grille let the in-ceiling loudspeakers blend into any room décor.

Can these be used outdoors in the ceiling of a covered lanai?

Asked by: gevertex
Yes. While different lanais can be designed uniquely, as long as the ceiling can accommodate the SP8CII’s mounting dimension, this should be fine. The SP8CII’s mounting depth is 4-1/4" (108mm) and its diameter is 9-1/2" (240mm).

whats the difference between this model and the jbl arena 8IC in terms of sound and material toughness? which would sound more complete and which would have more bass? thanks

Asked by: peter888
Both speakers can handle up to 100W RMS, meaning, sound wise they are the same. It would then boil down on how you would mount the speakers. Mounting the speaker to a thinner wall would produce sound differently from mounting the speakers to a thicker wall.

So are these meant for more of a fill speaker in a surround application or are they full range enough to be used as primary speakers?

Asked by: Rich T
These are great sounding in-wall/ceiling speakers. They can be used in pretty much any application. They will sound great as a set of ceiling stereo speakers, or as part of a surround sound system. The 8" woofer puts out plenty of bass.

What center speaker is matched to the SP8CII pairs?

Asked by: Alicec
The closest sonic match to the SP series in-wall speakers would be the ES25C. They have very similar tweeters and are voice very similarly. http://www.jbl.com/loudspeakers/ES25C.html?cgid=loudspeakers&dwvar_ES25C_color=Black#start=1
