About Klipsch DS-180CDT
The Klipsch DS-180CDT is a quality in-ceiling speaker that will be the perfect addition to your stereo or home cinema speaker system.
Treat yourself to top-notch sound with a speaker that blends seamlessly into your home's décor. The Klipsch DS-180CDT installs in your ceiling, so it won't take up one inch of floor space. And its high-tech design and solid construction make it a great choice for movie and music lovers alike. You can use multiple DS-180CDT's for surround sound in an all-Klipsch home theatre, or install them in pairs for stereo listening with your multi-room audio system. Either way, you'll enjoy crisp, clear Klipsch sound without the clutter of conventional speakers.
Great Klipsch Performance In An Affordable Speaker: The DS-180CDT's 25mm silk dome tweeter delivers clean, clear sound. The 203mm (8") woofer adds warmth and heft to the sound of movies and music alike. Klipsch speakers are renowned for their high efficiency and room-filling sound.
Slimmer Chance Of Being Seen: The DS-180CDT keeps a low profile with its SlimTrim grille. The visible frame size is reduced by 90% and grille depth is reduced by 80% over previous designs, for a nearly flush finish that blends in beautifully. The paintable aluminium, magnetic grille attaches securely to virtually eliminate resonant distortion.
High Efficiency:The high-efficiency design of the Klipsch in-ceiling speakers allows you to get much more output than most in-wall and in-ceiling speakers. Due to the long speaker wire runs that are common in whole-house audio systems, the power coming from the amplifier is significantly reduced by the time it reaches the speakers. The 94dB efficiency of this speaker means it will play much louder at low power than other less-efficient speakers.
2-Way Driver Design:The Klipsch DS-180CDT uses a high-quality 25mm silk dome compression driver (tweeter) mated to an exclusive Tractrix Horn, combined with a 8" polypropylene woofer in a 2-way design.
- Tweeter: The low-resonance, 1" Silk Dome tweeter recreates high frequencies with reduced distortion.
- Woofer: This dense, yet lightweight, 8" polypropylene woofer can reproduce authoritative bass.
Speaker Terminals: The speaker has a pair of spring clips that can accept up to 12-gauge wire or pin connectors.
ABS Basket/Frame: The DS-180CDT has a sturdy ABS basket and frame. The frame can be painted to match any decor.
SlimTrim Magnetic Grille: With an all new grille, the visible frame size is reduced by 90% and grille depth is reduced by 80% over the previous design, for a more edge-to-edge consistent look that blends in with the wall more attractively. The new aluminium, paintable, magnetic grille attaches tightly and securely with ease to virtually eliminate resonant distortion.
Power Specifications Note: The manufacturer has specified the continuous power handling of this speaker as 50 watts RMS (200 W Peak). Klipsch has also published a recommended amplifier power specification as 100 watts.

Of course you can use multiple DS-180CDT's for surround sound in an all-Klipsch home theatre, or install them in pairs for stereo listening with your multi-room audio system. Either way, you'll enjoy crisp, clear Klipsch sound without the clutter of conventional speakers.
