The IC-8AW in-ceiling speaker offers trademark MartinLogan
sound in areas where humidity prevents installation of conventional speakers.
The conformal coating applied to the crossover maximizes water-resistant
properties and the grille is specially coated to add material stability during
extended periods of exposure to moisture. A robust 8-inch woofer provides a
powerful and dynamic low-frequency performance.

Solutions Meet Performance

Manufactured to the highest standards of quality and
performance, the new Installer Series by MartinLogan is a line of affordable,
high-performance, ultra-low-profile custom installation in-ceiling and in-wall
speakers. Featuring titanium dome tweeters and mineral-filled polypropylene
drivers, each model comes with a remarkably robust mounting-lock system and
paintable micro-perf, bezel-free grilles for a nearly invisible installation.
Two all-weather models extended usage to high humidity areas. Pre-installation
brackets are available for all models and square grilles are available for
select in-ceiling models.

IP54 Certified All-Weather

The IC8-AW and IC3-AW are designed specifically for
all-weather applications and feature numerous design considerations ideal for
outdoor and other high-moisture applications, such as covered patios and
bathrooms. Each crossover has a conformal coating to maximize water-resistant
properties and special assembly techniques ensure that all driver attachment
points on the face of the speakers are completely sealed to remove the risk of
moisture penetration.

Titanium Dome Tweeters and Poly Cone Woofers

Titanium dome tweeters used throughout the Installer Series
are ferrofluid damped and cooled for smooth high-frequency performance with
amazing clarity across a wide listening area. Mineral-filled polypropylene cone
bass/midrange drivers feature robust computer-optimized ferrite magnets and
high-power motor structures to deliver detailed midrange performance and clean,
extended bass response.

Micro-Perforated Grilles

Installer Series speakers feature ultra-low profile,
paintable, micro-perforated grilles with no visible bezel for a near invisible
integration into any wall or ceiling. A series of powerful magnets hidden
inside the speaker quickly secure grilles into place, reducing the risk of
warping or damage during installation. To match modern aesthetics, optional
square grilles are available for most in-ceiling models (excludes all-weather

Precision Crossovers & Spring-Loaded Binding Posts

Carefully hand-built using only the finest polyester
capacitors and air-core coils, Installer Series crossovers employ MartinLogan’s
proprietary Vojtko topology for vanishingly low distortion and seamless driver
integration. This precision-tuned network preserves even the most microscopic
sonic nuances while handling the full dynamics of any source. Spring-loaded
binding posts feature a larger wire access hole and connect via banana plug,
pin, or 12AWG bare wire.

Robust Mounting-Lock System

A simple, yet robust mounting-lock system allows quick,
trouble-free installation. Pocketed screw holes help hold the drill steady,
making installation a snap. When not in use, mounting locks are held securely
within a self-contained housing. When moved into place, they couple the chassis
firmly to the ceiling or wall, increasing the rigidity of surfaces. If ever
removed, the locks retract and latch back in their housings. Each speaker includes
a full-size installation template featuring quick-reference instructions, and
die-cut guides for marking the cutout hole.
