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-millimetre) 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 theatre, and your favourite 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.

So I keep seeing lanai as an approved area but not a patio or porch... a lanai is just big porch, correct? flat out, will these things stand up to temperature changes and humidity of being in a covered outdoor environment? Thanks!

Asked by: Bdawson44
Lanais are usually designed differently; as long as the ceiling can accommodate the SP8CII’s mounting dimension, it should be fine. The SP8CII’s mounting depth is 4-1/4" (108mm) and its diameter is 9-1/2" (240mm). These are indoor speakers which are designed to withstand heat/cold from -40 degrees Celsius up to 60 degrees Celsius. If the listening areas is enclosed from the outdoor environment, the SP8CII will function as intended.

I found this speaker model on another website and they had it listed as one of the best in ceiling speaker for outdoors (like in a patio). Looking at the speakers description, I do not see any info stating that it can be used for indoor/outdoor.

Asked by: Jnxm
It is not suited for a patio but a lanais would be better as long as it has a ceiling that 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).

I am using the SP8CII for my front channel speakers. What in wall speaker would go with these for the center channel speaker?

Asked by: Jacob21
Hi! Unfortunately, we do not have an in-wall center channel speaker available. However, we do have the Arena 12C or Studio 520C center speakers to work with your ceiling speakers.

Are these speakers available for educational facilities?

Asked by: ITguy0492
The JBL SP8C!! are passive architectural speakers that require power from an amplifer/receiver. As long as you can provide roughly 100 watts of power at 8 ohms to each speaker, they will work great. Please note; you may or may not need more than a pair of SP8CII speakers depending on the listening area size and audio volume level.
