The brand new RSL C34 in-ceiling speaker is designed with quality parts to sound great and blend perfectly with the other RSL Speakers you see on this website. We think you’ll agree that it sounds better than higher priced in-ceiling speakers.
The reason for this is that other speakers mount the tweeter in front of the woofer. Some of the sound that emanates from the woofer strikes the tweeter and is reflected back to the woofer. This causes cancellation at certain frequencies. This is why the frequency response of most in-ceiling speakers is so erratic and why the sound suffers. We’ve eliminated this problem in the RSL C34.
Instead of a larger woofer with a tweeter in front of it, we’ve used dual 4” woofers mounted along side the tweeter. It all fits within the round frame. This results in a flatter frequency response and superior sound. Due to its 4 3/4” mounting depth, it may not be appropriate for wall mounting where there is less clearance.
