Position the cardboard mounting template on the ceiling where
you want to mount a speaker, then trace around the template.
Keyhole or drywall saw
Fish tape or coat hanger
1-inch ﬂat drill bit (if drilling through studs)
Drill a small hole in the center of the template outline you drew on
¼-inch to ½-inch drill bit (for drilling test hole)
Insignia speakers (2)
Paint plugs (2)
Mounting speakers in the ceiling
For stereo sound
Bend a piece of coat hanger wire, then insert the wire into the hole.
Slowly rotate the wire to check for any obstructions. If you ﬁnd an
obstruction, patch the hole and ﬁnd a new location for the speaker.
Using a keyhole or drywall saw, carefully cut the ceiling section you
outlined, then remove the section.
Mount the speakers 6 to 10 feet apart. Each speaker should be the same
distance from the listening area. For detailed mounting instructions, see
“Ceiling mount instructions.”
For home theater sound
Run the wires from the speaker outputs on your audio equipment
to your speakers. Allow a few extra feet of wire so you will have
enough wire to strip the insulation and splice the wires.
Note: Use high quality wire such as 16/4 speaker
wire. If you need to run the wires a long distance,
you can splice one or more lengths of wires
Mount the speakers 6 to 10 feet apart and 3 to 6 feet behind the
listening area. For detailed mounting instructions, see“Ceiling mount
Ceiling mount instructions
To mount the speakers in the ceiling:
(Optional)To improve speaker performance, insert unbacked
ﬁberglass insulation behind and around the speaker.
Determine where you want to mount the speakers.The speakers
must be mounted in areas where there are no obstructions like
studs (joists). Tap the ceiling to ﬁnd a“hollow”space, or use a stud
ﬁnder to locate the studs.
Warning:To avoid personal injury, wear gloves when
inserting the insulation.
Note: Make sure that your speaker wires are long enough to run from the
speakers to your audio equipment. If you plan to run the speaker wires
through the walls or ceiling, the wires must be UL or CL rated to ensure
your safety and to meet building code compliance.
