With a choice of 7- and 8-inch products, Niles' new DS line of in-ceiling products are engineered to install into a variety of home environments and to blend unobtrusively into these spaces once the installation is complete.

Niles Audio is one of the custom electronics industry’s oldest manufacturers and its products have been used in countless installations. The company’s Direct Soundfield (DS) in-ceiling loudspeakers are the newest product offerings from the long-time custom installation company, and to help installers address specific market niches, Niles has divided the line into five individual categories.

The five categories—-multipurpose (MP), performance (PR), high definition (HD), surround effects (FX) and stereo input (SI)—-are organized in a manner to help dealers to spec the right speaker for the right application. Within the product groups, Niles offers a complete selection of 7- and 8-inch models that incorporate spring-loaded mounting clamps and pivoting woofer and tweeter driver arrays that offer as much as 15-degrees of movement in any direction.

Niles also supports the line of products with a selection of optional 7- or 8-inch tuned enclosures that are engineered to minimize sound leakage into adjacent rooms.
