Question: How do I install these speakers in the wall or ceiling?
Answer: There are clips that secure it to the wall or ceiling boards. You don''''''''t need any additional box or bracket. You simply cut out a hole in the wall or ceiling with the template provided, insert the speakers and when you turn the mounting screws located on the face of the speakers underneath the grills, the clips will engage and secure the speaker in place.


Question: Can I use these speakers as an LCR (left/center/right) or used a match set for all my surrounds, or is it better to have specific types of speakers for specific locations.
Answer: Opinions will vary even among experts about the proper type of speaker to use. The bottom line is choose what suites your needs and tastes best.

Some of the arguments are as follows:

Using match speakers all around make it a lot easier to match the timber and tonal balance across a soundstage and around your room. This prevents a character in a movie who walks from one side of the room to another from sounding like Mike Tyson on one side and then James Earl Jones and back to Mike.

On the other hand. Most dialog comes from the center channel of a system in order to anchor the voices to the screen. The human voice tends to represent the upper mid bass frequencies, so dedicated center channels will have dual woofer cones to better produce this range of frequencies. Since dialog can easily be drowned out by ambient noises in the soundtrack, this helps to keep dialog clear and understandable.


Question: There is insulation behind my wall. Is it safe to install the speaker without a box?
Answer: In-wall speakers are designed with the possibility of insulation in mind. The insulation will not harm the speakers or create any hazard. Even regular box speakers have insulation in side them to reduce the effects of standing sound waves.
