Install Enhanced Stereo Audio for Larger Rooms

Fill nearly any sized room with premium audio quality with Russound 8 " Enhanced Performance Loudspeakers (Pair)! This pair of speakers provides a deeper bass response to give that extra dimension of sound and easily reach every corner of a room, transforming it into a mini-concert or theater at home. The speaker's 15° pivoting tweeter can be tweaked to aim sound at your preferred listing spot. Compared to Russound's IC-610 and IC-620 models, the IC-820 also provides an enhanced frequency response for a wider and fuller range of sound. The speakers are lightweight and feature a trademarked EasyGrip design that makes it easy to handle during installation, even with one hand. This premium Russound model also features its proprietary, patented SwiftLock® technology for effortless installation at the push of a button.

  • Pair of indoor speakers for larger rooms or rooms with high ceilings
  • Acoustically matched with the IC-620 & IW-620 – mix and match as needed
  • SwiftLock® tool-less quick and easy installation
  • Integrated one-piece baffle / woofer basket design stabilizes the speaker and brings more efficient bass
  • Paintable edgeless grilles blend seamlessly into any décor
  • Powerful neodymium grille magnets for easy and secure attachment

Speaker Placement in the Room

Russound's Architectural Series Speakers are designed to provide full sounding dispersion even in suboptimal positions away from the targeted primary axis, so that listeners throughout the room are treated to full, rich audio reproduction. For each room, think about what kind of listening will be most often occurring there. In a Great Room, living room, or bedroom, the ideal speaker placement will result in smooth, even coverage throughout the room. In a Home Theater set-up, you want the speakers to be equidistant from the prime listening position in order for the breadth and depth of the audio to feel like a movie theater's surround sound system.

For TV, movie, and music usage, ceiling speakers should be placed directly to the sides or behind the prime listening position and aimed toward the listener. If the prime purpose of the surround system is to listen to music, the in-ceiling speakers should be aimed at the prime listening position. Any in-ceiling speakers used for rear surround sound channels should be placed just behind the viewers.

Your speaker's low frequency bass reproduction is "helped" when ceiling speakers are placed close to a wall or ceiling. This is known as the boundary effect. Each nearby surface helps to amplify the perceived sound output. Better audio performance will result if both speakers are placed in similar positions and face a similar type of surface. For example, avoid placing one speaker in a corner and another on a long flat surface.

Below are some examples for in-ceiling placement options:

  • Good placement for serious listening: Stereo pair In-ceiling. 6' to 8' (1.8m-2.4m) apart, on the long wall of a rectangular room, centered on the listening area.
  • Good placement for background listening: Stereo pair behind, above or to the sides of the main listening area. 6' to 8' (1.8m-2.4m) apart, centered on the listening area.
