Speakercraft AIM8 Two Series 2 ceiling speaker

Speakercraft logo

The Speakercraft AIM8 Two Series 2 ceiling speaker has been 100% re-crafted to support sophisticated installations, demanding sonic performance and advanced object-based surround audio platforms such as Dolby Atmos.
AIM Series 2 breaks new ground by adapting technology that was once only utilized in large sound reinforcement experiences. By incorporating multiple tweeters in a line array, the Speakercraft AIM8 Two Series 2 delivers focused high frequencies further into the listening area than standard tweeter configurations.

Complementing the ARC tweeter array is the updated WavePlane technology that acts as an acoustic lens, focusing the high frequency audio range into the listening environment for a cleaner, wider, and richer sound. Ordinary speakers only sound their best when you are directly underneath them but the WavePlane assures optimal high frequency dispersion throughout the listening area.

The enhanced directional ability of the AIM8 Two Series 2 presents new options for sound design, from home cinema to whole home audio. More than ever, sound can be directed to a specific section of a room, angled toward a seating area or wherever an audio impact is desired.


Proprietary ARC tweeter array design

Uniform, aim-able high-frequency coverage

Lower crossover point through increased number of drivers gives increased sound pressure level at the critical mid-range frequencies resulting in a sweeter sweet spot

Smoother power response, higher power handling capability and less distortion than a single tweeter design

New speaker housing design allows for a +/-15 degree pivoting woofer, totaling 30 degrees of adjustment, plus Arc-Tweeter Array with +/- 15 degree toe-in/toe-out adjustment, and 359 degrees of rotational flexibility

Patented acoustic isolation technology

Co-molded, lower density compounds minimize structural resonance in the surrounding wall/ceiling

Updated WavePlane design enhances high frequency dispersion

Acoustic Vortex Eliminators reduce sound turbulence

Increased stiffness of the curvilinear cone design enables the cone to deliver energy to the air more effectively for greater bass response

Butyl elastomer surround creates a more consistent sound with less disruption

Non-conductive Kapton formers, copper caps and extended poles reduce distortion

Improved power handling and sensitivity limits compression for louder and cleaner sound

Symmetrical and A-symmetrical Linkwitz-Riley crossover designs for highest sound quality

Optimal sound disperssion

As a final touch, the AIM 2’s Vortex Eliminators disperse sound as it reaches the outer edge of the speaker baffle. Acoustically, this moves the speaker closer to the surface of the ceiling, improving the overall dispersion of sound and eliminating any tunnel effect found in lesser ceiling speakers.
