Yamaha NS-IW280CWH Overview

  • 1Description

The NS-IW280CWH is a versatile, easy-to-install in-ceiling speaker that reproduces natural sound like only Yamaha can. The woofer is set in a tilted mounting allowing the user to aim the sound. Swiveling "Sound Max" tweeters create sizzling highs up to 28kHz. For maximum flexibility, the aluminum grill is paintable and comes with a protective cover.

Do-It-Yourself Installation
Installation requires a few basic tools with paintable frame and grill.
"Sound Max"
Unique crossover design ensures the greatest sound dispersion from dual tweeters.
Swivel Tweeters and Tilting Woofer
By pressing on the edge of the tweeters, high frequency sound can be directed towards the main listening area. The woofer can also be focused by rotating the speaker enclosure which has a 12° pre-tilted construction

    Yamaha NS-IW280CWH Reviews

    NS-IW280CWH In-Ceiling Speaker System is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 16.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Literally Scared the mess out of Me! I recently purchased a pair of these in ceiling speakers for our new family/theater room. They were a good price and I was looking for something to put in the ceiling because the genius (myself) who designed the room put the end of the line for the rear surround speakers about 3 feet in front of the doorway to the room. Hanging a speaker there (slanted ceiling) would have meant many-a-head wounds in the future. Hence, in ceiling. I digress... In just a couple days after the online purchase I got the pair of speakers on my doorstep and was able to install them without issue. Considering the size (they're bigger than I expected, should have read the specs :/ but not a bad thing) I was not surprised by the volume they could produce. What scared me nearly to an early grave was the clarity in the quiet. We watched our first movie in our new room with the new set up... I went to turn the light off, my ear was near the speaker and seemingly forgot it was there, because some distant noise came clearly whispering out of the speaker and I thought one of our kids had gotten out and was in one of the other rooms... I looked around and eventually realized the idiot I was... it's called surround sound dummy! These speakers are awesome. Set up was easy, install a breeze.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product, Great Price! This pair of speakers was purchased to fill the rear speaker slot in a home theater/surround system. They are easy to install, look as would be expected mounted in the ceiling, and the sound is as advertised. The grill is paintable but left it white to match ceiling so can't add any thoughts on that aspect. The price was the best I could find (B&H wins again!), and it was delivered free wihtin about 3 days. Very happy with this entire experience.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Sound and Price!! Great when paired with the matching natural sound receiver. Sound quality is really good for the price. I bought these to install in a customers whole house audio system. We are both very happy with this system. I will be using it more. I have speakers 3 times the price and these sound just as good!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For their price they are awesome!! I am in Australia and had these sent over, For their price you can't go past the sound quality and affordability. These are in our lounge room in the house with a Yamaha surround sound amplifier and they crank with movies!! Guaranteed satisfaction......giddyup!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great ceiling speakers Easy install and good sound. Added as height speakers in 5.1.2 home theater. Note tweeters can be adjusted for firing direction. Manual not clear on how to, but do so by pressing on edge of tweeter themselves. 3 way system, woofer and two tweeters.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice speakers I purchased these speakers as height speakers for an Atmos 5.1.2 setup with my Onkyo TX-NR646 receiver. I am no expert or audio techno geek, just an average listener that enjoys great surround sound with my movies. These speakers are very reasonably priced and sound great to me so far. The paint-able screen and bezel feature allowed me to attractively blend them into the ceiling. Very happy with them.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not so good Bought these for surround sound and extensions for stereo in other rooms. First there is no base out of these speakers or so limited you can hardly tell. Tweeters are fairly decent by the speaker does lack mid range. Had hooked up against a 35 year old pair of radian Research Speakers and the old speakers even with cracked woofers sounded better. Next compared it to Klispe Center speaker and again no comparison. Halfway decent highs muddy mids and almost non existent lows.
