Niles CM8HD 8-Inch 2-Way In-Ceiling Loudspeaker (Each)

Niles may be best known for their helpful lineup of audio/video distribution gear. But they also make custom-integration speakers, like the CM8HD, that are ideal for a whole-house music system.

This moisture-resistant in-ceiling speaker pairs an 8" woofer with a 1" amiable dome tweeter for detailed, dynamic sound in your bathroom, kitchen, garage, or covered porch. You can also use this speaker as part of a custom-installed home theater system, particularly for your overhead or surround channels.


  • 8" IMPACT (Improved Aluminum Ceramic Technology) woofer cone with curvilinear profile and extended pole provides natural, flat response
  • 1" nano-coated IMPACT dome tweeter utilizes a vapor deposited coating to move any ringing frequencies outside the range of hearing for ultra-detailed high frequencies
  • Butyl rubber surround damps resonance and provides exceptional durability
  • Proprietary bridge-mounted tweeter pivot mechanism focuses the high-frequency sound in any direction up to 20° without diffraction
  • Three-position tweeter level control for precise matching to room acoustics
  • Magnetically attached, rust-resistant grille covers install quickly and provide a low profile look
  • Weather-resistant construction reduces installation limitations and provides unique solutions in moist environments like bathrooms or outdoors under eaves
  • Patent-pending spring-tensioned mounting clamps permit quick installation and compensate for uneven mounting surfaces and varied environmental conditions
