Warning IMPORTANT! Installation Precautions
Due to the nature of this product, there are several precautions to follow before installation can begin.

  1. Allow sufficient clearance between the speaker and any insulation that may be in the wall cavity to avoid ignition should overheating occur.
    1″ (26mm) for Non-Flammable Materials 3″ (78mm) for Flammable Materials
  2. Ensure that all wire run inside of walls and ceiling meets or exceeds local fire codes for hidden wiring.
  3. Determine wire lengths and select the proper gauge speaker wire to use based on the table under Wire Gauge by Distance.
  4. Do NOT overtighten the dog legs when securing the speaker to surfaces as this may cause the speaker to come loose. If using a power screwdriver set it to the lowest settings.
  5. Do NOT connect the speakers to an amplifier rated above the recommended amplifier power. Overdriving the speaker can cause an overheating condition increasing the risk of injury.
  6. Do NOT connect the amplifier end of the wire until all speakers are wired and installed.
  7. Determine and purchase any accessories such as preconstruction brackets before beginning the installation process. Refer to Associated Accessories for a list of available brackets.
  8. Ensure that wall and ceiling board material is between ½” (13mm) and 2″ (51mm) thick and capable of supporting the weight of the speaker.
