25 – 80 watts suggested amplifier power range

JBL engineers designed the SP6CII in-ceiling loudspeaker to produce accurate, enveloping sound from an AVR (audio/video receiver) or amplifier capable of delivering up to 80 watts of power.


6-1/2" (165mm) titanium-laminate cone for enhanced bass response

Realistic reproduction of music requires clean, undistorted low frequencies. The JBL SP6CII in-ceiling loudspeaker features a 6-1/2-inch (165-millimetre) titanium-laminate woofer cone that offers great stiffness for low distortion. Rubber surrounds ensure durability, while extended polepieces produce deep, powerful bass with little distortion. The result is enveloping, satisfying audio reproduction from the bottom up.


Detailed high-frequency sound reproduction

The SP6CII in-ceiling loudspeaker’s thin but rigid 1-inch (25-millimetre) titanium-laminate tweeter delivers accurate, clear high-frequency response, even at elevated volume levels. The tweeter’s swivel-mount means that you can direct high frequencies exactly where you want them.


Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS) waveguide for “sit-anywhere” sound

Forget about “sweet spots.” With proprietary JBL Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal (EOS) waveguide technology, your whole room becomes a perfect listening position. Originally designed for JBL Professional LSR studio monitors, the SP6CII in-ceiling loudspeaker’s EOS waveguide distributes sound evenly throughout the playback area.


Low profile and easy installation

With a mounting depth of just 4-1/4 inches (108 millimetres) and weighing only 4.5 pounds (2.0 kilograms), the lightweight, space-saving SP6CII in-ceiling loudspeaker offers maximum installation flexibility. A cutting template and integrated dog-ear brackets accommodate retrofit applications, while rough-in frames are available for new construction.


Paintable grille and frame

The JBL SP6CII in-ceiling loudspeakers offer outstanding performance, but that doesn’t mean that they have to stand out in a room. You can paint the frames and grilles so that the loudspeakers match your ceiling colour and decor. You’ll hardly notice SP6CIIs – until you turn them on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Was not expecting much... but Started with 2 for atmos, got them in blown away at the sound, will be ordering probally 10 more to install throughout house. Got them on sale for 67... I still can't believe how they soundz they are perfect for atmos or just any use indoor ceiling speakers. I don't see how any other speakers could sound better for more money. These were added to the studio 500 series for atmos, unbelievable, again unbelievable

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good deal Bought these on black Friday sale. Was a really good deal. Likely won't install for awhile, but if they have the typical JBL/Harman sound and performance then it was a superb buy.

Product Q&A

Newbie in HTS. Is it advisable/OK to have SP8II (In-Wall 100w) and SP6CII (In-Ceiling 80w) on a 7.2 HTS? If OK, will an amplifier able to deliver 80W and 100w for these 2 speaker types? Any issues you see. Thanks in advance.

Asked by: NewbieInHTS
You can definitely connect the JBL SP8II and JBL SP6II on a 7.2 capable receiver as long as the receiver can support an 8 ohm load. The JBL SP8II can take up to 100Wrms and the JBL SP6II can take up to 80Wrms. You would need to look for an amplifier that is rated at 80W or 100W per channel for you to maximize the speakers. It is the amplifier that dictates the wattage and it is the speaker that dictates the impedance (ohms).

Hello, I cannot find an 80W Amplifier on your website, for this product .. What’s the most suitable Amplifier would you recommend , please ? And is it 1 speaker to 1 Amplifier?

Asked by: Deelicious
Unfortunately, we don't have a JBL home amplifier or receiver at the moment. Please check out amps and receivers from our other Harman brands.

Whats the difference between those and SP6II?

Asked by: giga
You can use either speaker for in-wall or in-ceiling application. The only reason the SP6CII is considered an in-ceiling speaker is because of its mounting dimension.  Walls are not as deep as ceilings. Since the SP6CII has more depth than the SP6II, it may not fit inside most walls.  Also the SP6II is rectangular in shape, while the SP6CII is circular.

Thinking of buying these and SP8II for a home theatre setup.. use the SP6II for rear surround. Is that the right application? do these come with grills / covers? also what center channel would go with these speakers?

Asked by: rajnewbie
The SP6CII comes with grilles upon purchase. You can pair the SP6CII with any of the dedicated center channels on our website on this link: https://www.jbl.com/loudspeakers/

Can I connect these directly to the "optical audio out" port on my tv?

Asked by: Scott1302
No, you will need to connect our JBL SP6C II to a receiver or an amplifier to make it work. You can check on page 4 of our Owner's Manual on how to connect these to your receiver. https://bit.ly/34HUXdV

What is the IP rating on these speakers? Are they Fully Weather resistant?

Asked by: youwishyouknew
Thank you for your question. The JBL SP6CII are not IP rated and are strictly in-door/ in-ceiling speakers.

I am looking for a powered bluetooth ceiling speaker. Do you have anything that plugs into a power source in the ceiling and does not need an amp? So i can just connect with bluetooth and choose which speakers I want to play at any given time?

Asked by: keithz
All of our in-ceiling and in-wall speakers are passive and need an amplifier to work. We'd like to know more information about your preferences and how you're planning to make your home theatre set up. Please contact us so we could give you some recommendations through this link: http://bit.ly/2mKB7hl.
