Two-Way Design: The Klipsch R-1650-C in-ceiling speaker employs a 6.5" polymer-cone woofer and a large motor structure for high sensitivity. A coaxially mounted 1" polymer-dome tweeter distributes smooth, clear highs over a wide area. The Klipsch R-1650-C in-ceiling speaker brings dynamic acoustic performance to both home and commercial environments.
Basket/Frame: The R-1650-C has a sturdy ABS basket and frame. The frame can be painted to match any decor (a clear paint mask is supplied to protect the drivers from overspray). The aluminum mesh grille is also paintable.
Spring-Clip Terminals: The Klipsch R-1650-C in-ceiling speaker features two spring-clip terminals which will accept either bare speaker wire or pin-connectors. The spring-clip speaker terminals are color-coded (red/black) for easy identification between positive and negative.
Power Specifications Note: The manufacturer has specified the maximum power handling of this speaker as 35 watts RMS (140 W Peak). Klipsch has also published a recommended amplifier power specification as 70 watts.
Installation: The speaker requires a cutout diameter of 8.1875" and a mounting depth of 3.9375". The speaker should be installed in drywall at least 3/8" thick. It can also be installed in a drop ceiling (2' x 2' or 2' x 4' ceiling tiles only). In both cases, to maximize the acoustic performance of the in-ceiling speakers, Klipsch recommends you replace the original mounting panel with 1/2" or 3/4" plywood or MDF. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout.

These speakers were great to add Dolby Atmos to my home theatre. Installation was easy. Beware that if you have blown insulation there are some good tricks on YouTube on how not to make a mess. I did not view these until after and wow a lot of insulation came down. Totally happy with the sound.
