  • Batt insulation is really the preferred method of insulating above ceiling speakers. It holds back the blown in insulation when you cut the installation hole.

    Customers sometimes ask if they need an enclosure or a back box when installing their in-wall speakers. The answer is no but keep reading if you want to impress your friends about how much you know about the subject. In-wall speakers use an infinite baffle design. This design allows the speakers to work in various size spaces, like inside a wall where the internal space differs from application to application. The design came from the car stereo industry where infinite baffle designs had to be used to accommodate different size trunks and doors. OSD Audio speakers can adapt to a broad range of enclosure sizes and can be installed with or without an enclosure (with infinite baffle, the wall cavity becomes the enclosure). There is a tradeoff, however. Without a back box, sound may bleed to another room. This may or may not be issue but if you decide to build an enclosure, it needs to be less than 4 inches for in-wall and 5 to 6 inches for ceiling speakers. For new construction, some folks build an enclosure featuring a top and two sides and use the ceiling joists or studs as the other two sides. It's a good idea to isolate the speaker from the insulation found in outer walls and ceilings. There are other things you can do to influence the sound in an enclosure like adding Fiber Fill (Dacron-Polyester fiberfill), which can be purchased at any fabric or hardware store. This trick makes the speaker think it’s working in a larger enclosure than it is which is good especially if your application is limited on space.

    Like most of the other in ceiling speakers reviewed here the Pyle speakers come with a 1” high temperature voice coil and a directable 1” titanium dome tweeter that can be moved to direct sound where you want it although they are more limited in range than other movable tweeters. The sound the speakers produce is full and rich and they can be raised to a maximum of 250 watts.

    In the case of new construction, by planning before the drywall goes up, you can easily provide for Stereo Music in every room. 

    A simple guide and introduction on installing ceiling speakers and wall speakers.

    If you are building a new residential or commercial structure or remodeling an existing property, Now is the time to plan for a Music Distribution System. It's easier than you might expect.

    All you need to start with is an existing HiFi Stereo System. If it has at least 50 watts per channel of output power it should be suitable as the heart of an entire residential or small scale business music system.

    Speaker cabinets already exist everywhere in your building. It’s the walls and ceilings. They are ideal speaker cabinets. A typical eight foot tall wall with 16" stud centers has nearly three cubic feet of interior space. That is equivalent to a speaker cabinet 1 foot wide, 1 foot deep and 3 feet tall. Speakers need cabinets to develop bass response, that is why speakers in big cabinets are capable of great bass.

    The walls and ceilings which make up the building serve as terrific speaker enclosures, at no additional expense and furthermore allow you to place the sound source(s) unobtrusively almost anywhere you wish.

  • Yes, you can.

    You can use window screen mesh or use a piece of batting style insulation as a way to hold the insulation back without inhibiting the proper air flow.
    DON'T BUILD A BOX!

    Batt insulation is really the preferred method of insulating above ceiling speakers.  It holds back the blown in insulation when you cut the installation hole.

    If you already have blown in insulation and doing a cut without batting above, take a piece of batt insulation up the ladder with you and with your last cut of the hole, push that batt, along with the piece of cut drywall up into the attic space and leave it there in place holding back the blown in insulation.

    The JBL 2 way in ceiling speakers are a great option for anyone who wants to save floor space without giving up quality sound. These speakers feature titanium laminate tweeters that are movable to direct the sound where you want and they provide excellent high frequency sounds.

The tweeter is placed on a ball and swivel socket mount which gives a lot of flexibility in directing the sound for those high frequencies. If you own other Polk speakers you will be glad to know these in ceiling speakers are voice-matched to other Polk speakers so they can be used for in a home theatre system that includes other Polk speakers.
