If you are installing the LSW-6/LSW-6.5 into
an existing wall, take time to consider any
possible obstructions, which may be hidden
inside the wall: studs, electrical wiring,
telephone wiring, plumbing, AC or heating
conduit and ductwork.

Determine the best mounting locations
based on the room layout. Before cutting
any holes, make sure the area behind both
speakers is clear for installation. Speakers
provide the best coverage, when centered
in the wall. Choose a suitable mounting
height, and then line up both speakers
approximately the same distance from the
sidewall and ceiling boundaries.

1. Using your stud locator, identify the

location of the studs on each side of the
proposed speaker mounting location.

2. Mark their edges, using masking tape.

3. Repeat this process for the other speaker.

4. You may have to adjust the speaker

mounting locations based on how
symmetrical the studs are located, in the
wall space.

5. Check for clearance using the following


a. Drill a 1/4” pilot hole in the center of the

intended speaker location.

b. Cut a foot-long piece of coat hanger.

c. Bend the wire, creating a right angle,

leaving 4-1/4” at one end.

d. Poke the “L-shaped” wire into the pilot

hole and turn it in a complete circle,
checking for obstructions.

e. Push it into the wall cavity to make

sure you have approximately 4” of

f. If the coat hanger movement is

obstructed by anything, fill the hole(s)
with spackle and try another location.

6. Locate the cutout template.

7. Use a pencil and the cutout template to

trace the speaker outline in the desired
locations on the wall.

8. Use a drywall saw to cut along the

penciled line.

9. Slip the mounting bracket through the

opening and pull it toward you so that its
front edge slides into the hole and stops
in place.
