The JBL SP6II and SP8II in-wall loudspeakers both feature a combined low-frequency woofer and swivel-mounted tweeter, with the SP6II boasting a 6.5” driver and the SP8II coming in at 8”. Both in-wall loudspeakers feature JBL’s Proprietary Elliptical Oblate Spheroidal, giving you the ability to sit wherever you’d like the room without having to cater to certain sweetspots.
SP6II offers 80 watts of peak power handling and has a mounting depth of 3.75″. The SP6II is 11″ in height and 8.5″ wide, and has a frequency response of (-10dB) 38Hz – 20kHz. The SP8II is the larger version of the SP6II and offers 100 watts, a 4″ mounting depth, 13.25″ height, 10.25″ width and a frequency response of (-10dB) 38Hz – 20kHz. The SP6II crosses over at 2.8kHz and the SP8II crosses over at 2.4kHz. Unlike the SP6II, the SP8II features a paintable grille.

Between your choice of the SP6II and SP8II, and the SP6CII and SP8CII, you’ll have even-distributed sound thanks to the in-ceiling versions also featuring proprietary waveguide technology.
