The Leviton AEC80 Architectural Edition JBL 8-Inch 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers can be used for front (left and right) home theater installations, and can be used for side and/or rear channel output in 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound applications. Typically they are used for applications where in-wall speakers are not desired. The JBL speakers feature Titanium-laminate drivers that maintain musical accuracy and clarity even at frequency extremes. Long-excursion woofers with butyl-rubber half-round surrounds and extended pole-piece magnetic structures deliver maximum bass impact and dynamic range. The Straight-line Signal Path (SSP) crossover network means there is minimal signal distortion and Elliptical Oblate Sphereoidal (EOS) Waveguide technology ensures excellent high-frequency dispersion. Low-diffraction, swivel-tweeter mounting system let's you direct sound where you want it most, giving you the optimum stereo imaging. Additionally, these speakers have heavy-duty push-type input terminals for long-term connection integrity, integrated dog-ear mounting brackets and acoustically-transparent paintable baffles and grilles so you can match your speakers to your home décor.
Add a second pair of these speakers for the rear channels in a 5.1 setup, two more pairs of these speakers for the rear and side channels in a 7.1 setup, a Leviton AEI55
for the center channel and a Leviton AESUB-12
powered subwoofer to complete you home theater surround sound setup.
