Passive ceiling speakers need an amplifier in order to produce audio. Each speaker is wired back to the speaker outputs on the amplifier, or in some cases, you can daisy-chain the speakers between each other. They are great for home installations as when installed, they are discrete but also provide great quality audio.

If you are just after a single stereo ceiling speaker, you would want a ceiling speaker that has dual drivers for the left and right signals. By having two drivers in one casing, the stereo sound is achieved and this is great for smaller installations where you will only have one or two speakers in a single room.

Another great option that we offer in our passive ceiling speaker range is moisture-resistant speakers. These are perfect to be installed in a bathroom or kitchen as you don't have the worry of them getting wet and breaking from water damage. They can also be installed in places like garages or sheds where condensation is common.

100V line ceiling speakers are ideal for larger installations, such as audio systems that cover an entire house. Their design means that you can wire a larger number of them back to one compatible amplifier, and you can daisy-chain them together which means simpler installation.

Low impedance in ceiling speakers

Low impedance passive ceiling speakers are a popular option for home audio systems. Unlike 100V line speakers, which are mostly designed for commercial applications, low impedance speakers have a lower resistance, typically between 4 and 8 ohms. This makes them more efficient and better suited for use in smaller rooms, such as bedrooms, living rooms, and home theaters.

One advantage of low impedance passive ceiling speakers is their ability to provide high-quality sound in a compact design. Since they are mounted in the ceiling, they take up minimal space and can provide a clean, unobtrusive look. This makes them an ideal choice for homeowners who want to enjoy high-quality audio without sacrificing aesthetics.

Another advantage of low impedance ceiling mounted speakers is their compatibility with a wide range of audio equipment. They can be connected to a wide range of amplifiers or receivers that support the correct impedance rating and wattage level, making them a versatile option for home audio systems. Additionally, many low impedance ceiling speakers come with built-in crossovers and other audio enhancements, which can help to improve sound quality and reduce distortion.

When it comes to installation, low impedance passive ceiling speakers can be relatively easy to set up, especially if you have some experience with DIY projects. However, it is important to note that you will need to run speaker wire from your amplifier or receiver to each speaker location, which can be a bit time-consuming. It is also important to ensure that your amplifier or receiver can handle the impedance of your speakers, as using the wrong impedance can lead to poor sound quality or even damage to your equipment.

100V line ceiling speakers for home

100V line ceiling speakers are a popular option for multi-room audio setups in homes, particularly in situations where multiple speakers need to be wired over a long distance. These speakers operate on a high-impedance (100-volt) line, which allows for multiple speakers to be wired in parallel without experiencing significant voltage drop or loss of sound quality. This makes them ideal for use in large homes or multi-room audio setups, where a single amplifier can power multiple speakers.

One of the key advantages of 100V line ceiling speakers for home applications is their ability to provide consistent sound quality across multiple speakers, even when wired over a long distance. With traditional low-impedance speakers, the longer the wire run, the more resistance the wire will add to the circuit, resulting in a drop in sound quality. However, with 100V line speakers, the high-impedance line can deliver a consistent level of power to each speaker, regardless of the length of the wire run. This means that homeowners can enjoy high-quality sound in every room of their home, without any loss of sound quality due to distance or wiring.

Another advantage of 100V line ceiling speakers for home applications is their scalability. Since multiple speakers can be wired in parallel, homeowners can add as many speakers as they need to create the desired audio experience throughout their home. Additionally, since 100V line speakers are designed to be installed in the ceiling, they can provide a clean, unobtrusive look that can blend seamlessly into any home decor.

Moisture-proof ceiling mounted speakers

Moisture-proof passive ceiling speakers are a great option for homeowners who want to enjoy high-quality audio in wet or damp environments, such as bathrooms, kitchens, and patios. These speakers are designed to resist moisture and humidity, which can help to prevent damage and extend their lifespan.

One of the key advantages of moisture-proof passive ceiling speakers is their ability to provide high-quality audio in environments that are typically not well-suited for traditional speakers. Since they are designed to resist moisture, they can be installed in areas that are prone to high levels of humidity or moisture, such as bathrooms or kitchens, without experiencing damage or degradation in sound quality.

Another advantage of moisture-proof passive ceiling speakers is their durability. Since they are designed to resist moisture and humidity, they are often built with materials that are resistant to corrosion and rust. This can help to extend their lifespan and prevent the need for frequent replacement.

When it comes to installation, moisture-proof passive ceiling speakers can be relatively easy to set up, especially if you have some experience with DIY projects. However, it is important to note that you will need to ensure that your amplifier or receiver is located in a dry location, as moisture can result in damage. Additionally, it may be necessary to use specialised wiring that is designed to resist moisture and prevent damage.

2-way in-ceiling speakers

Many of our in ceiling speakers have a 2-way, or coaxial, design, which means that each speaker has a separate woofer and tweeter driver housed in one unit. The frequency range of any audio content is distributed effectively between these separate drivers, which results in a concise and clear sound with good clarity and power across the whole frequency range.

There are also some ceiling speakers with directional tweeters, which allow you to aim the tweeter driver towards a listening area for a clearer sound. This is particularly useful for entertainment purposes in rooms like living rooms, offices, or home theatres, as the sound can be fully directed for the best clarity when enjoying audio content.

Single stereo ceiling speakers are another option, which are single units designed to reproduce a stereo signal effectively in one room. These speakers use two tweeters that aim away from each other - effectively directing the left and right audio signals to each end of the room for a stereo effect. These units are good for smaller rooms such as bedrooms, kitchens, or dining rooms.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are passive ceiling speakers?

Passive ceiling speakers produce clear, high-quality audio and are perfect for playing music, and providing audio entertainment in the home. They are designed to fit tightly against any ceiling, creating a modern and subtle finish. Passive ceiling speakers will need to connect to a suitable amplifier that will provide the speakers with power. You will then be able to control the speakers from the amplifier, and many amplifiers will include useful features such as Bluetooth technology and an in-built MP3 player. A range of passive speakers are available in various sizes to suit every space, and some models are water resistant for use in rooms such as bathrooms.

Are passive ceiling speakers water resistant?

Some passive ceiling speakers are designed to be water-resistant. This makes them ideal for use in rooms such as bathrooms and kitchens. You can check this by looking at the product descriptions, as water-resistant speakers will have an IP rating. This means they can withstand sprays, water splashes, and high moisture levels in the air. However, be aware that water resistant speakers are not usually designed to be fully submerged in the water.

What types of passive ceiling speakers are available?

A wide selection of passive ceiling speakers are available to suit different spaces. The speakers vary in size, with our range starting at 2 inches and going up to 8 inches, with larger speakers typically providing a more powerful performance. The speaker design also varies, with many models including magnetic grilles and a 2-way coaxial arrangement for a clear high-quality sound. Some models have additional features such as tweeter level adjustment, so you can adjust the tweeter volume to suit different songs. Furthermore, some speakers are waterproof, making them perfect for installation in kitchens and bathrooms. Please note that all passive speakers will need to be connected to a suitable amplifier to power the speaker.

Can passive ceiling speakers be connected to a TV?

Passive ceiling speakers cannot connect directly to a TV, but can be connected through a suitable amplifier, enabling you to listen to your television in high-quality audio. A television can connect to an amplifier in various ways, commonly through an AUX or phono-RCA connection. If your amplifier includes Bluetooth technology, and your television has a Bluetooth transmitter, you will also be able to use Bluetooth to connect your speaker system to a TV.

Are passive better than active ceiling speakers?

Whether or not passive ceiling speakers are better than active ceiling speakers will depend entirely on your specific circumstances and requirements, as they are both good for different purposes. Passive ceiling mounted speakers, for example, are great for home theatres and multi-room configurations, while active speakers are ideal for easier single-room audio playback.

How do you know if a ceiling speaker is passive?

To determine whether or not a ceiling speaker is passive, you should check the connectors on the back of it. If it only has terminals for bare wire cable, it is a passive unit and requires a power amplifier in order to work. If there is a DC power connector on the speaker, it is an active unit and can plug directly into a mains power supply to work.

Can I use in ceiling speakers with Bluetooth?

Passive in ceiling speakers cannot be directly used with Bluetooth devices, as they will not work without being connected to an external power amplifier. That being said, you could get an amplifier that has Bluetooth connectivity to stream audio wirelessly from a smart device.

What is a good wattage for ceiling speakers?

The wattage for ceiling speakers depends on various factors such as the room size, speaker sensitivity, and desired volume levels. Generally, for background music, 20-30 watts per channel is sufficient, while for a more powerful and immersive experience, 50-100 watts per channel is recommended. It's important to note that higher wattage does not necessarily mean better sound quality, and matching the amplifier power to the speaker's power handling capabilities is essential for optimal performance.

Do passive ceiling speakers need an amplifier?

Yes, passive ceiling speakers require a suitable amplifier in order to function. The amplifier provides the speakers with the power needed for them to operate. It also means that the speakers can be easily controlled by the amplifier, which is ideal when using multiple speakers. Please note that the amplifier will need to match the speakers closely in terms of impedance and wattage, which can be checked by viewing the product descriptions. A range of amplifiers are available and often include useful features such as Bluetooth, AUX inputs and an in-built MP3 player. For help finding a suitable amplifier for your speakers please get in touch with our expert team.

How do you install passive ceiling speakers?

Passive ceiling speakers can be installed on a variety of ceiling materials. Firstly, you will need to cut a circular hole in the ceiling, using the template provided. The speaker will then fit flush to the ceiling with clamps, and the wires will be hidden within the ceiling. As the speakers have a passive design, they will need to be wired to a suitable amplifier. This will provide the speakers with power and will enable you to control the speakers.

How do I play music on passive ceiling speakers?

To play music on your passive ceiling speakers they will need to be connected to an amplifier. You will then be able to play music through the amplifier. The amplifier will usually contain a variety of inputs and features to enable you to connect devices such as CD players, laptops and smartphones to play music. In addition, Bluetooth technology may be included, allowing you to stream music wirelessly from a smart device.

Do passive ceiling speakers produce a good sound?

The sound quality varies between passive ceiling speakers, but they are capable of producing excellent sound reproduction, making them ideal for home Hi-Fi. Most of our speakers have a two-way coaxial design, guaranteeing a clear and balanced sound. This design means they feature a separate woofer and tweeter, and low and high frequencies are distributed to each. Some speakers also feature extras to enhance sound reproduction, such as kevlar cones that minimise distortion, and tweeter level adjustment.

Which is better - wall or ceiling speakers?

There is no clear answer to whether wall or ceiling speakers are better as it depends on the specific needs and preferences of the user. Wall speakers are typically better for larger spaces and can be positioned at ear level for optimal listening, while ceiling speakers are great for surround sound and can provide a more immersive experience. Ultimately, the best choice depends on the room layout, speaker placement, and personal preferences of the listener.

What is a 2-way passive ceiling speaker?

When talking about ceiling speakers for home installation, ‘2-way’ or ‘coaxial’ refers to the driver layout of the speaker. Specifically, it means that the speaker has a main woofer driver that handles all low and mid-range frequencies, as well as an additional tweeter driver mounted in front of the woofer that handles all high-range frequencies. The result is a powerful sound with good clarity and effective sound reproduction over a wide frequency range.

Do ceiling speakers produce bass?

Yes, ceiling speakers can reproduce low-range frequencies well, although they won’t be capable of providing extremely punchy bass like you would expect with units like tower speakers or on-wall speakers. If you want a ceiling speaker setup with good bass output, it is recommended to also use a HiFi subwoofer.

How do I choose the best ceiling speakers?

To choose the best ceiling mounted speakers for your home, you should consider factors such as the space you have available, the power handling of your amplifier, and the purpose that you want to use the speakers for. For example, if you want louder volume levels for music playback, going for larger ceiling speaker models would be a better option.

Another factor to consider is the room or area that you will be installing the speakers. For example, you may want to install ceiling speakers in your bathroom or kitchen, in which case it would be extremely important to opt for models with a moisture-proof design.
