Where To Place Your Ceiling Speaker
Placement can make all the difference in how your speaker will sound, and how easy
it will be to install. Carefully consider where your speaker should be positioned. For opti-
mum performance, the speaker should be mounted as close as possible to the center of
the main listening area (See Fig. 2). Avoid mounting the speaker in stud cavities containing
electrical wiring, heating ducts, water pipes, etc. Make sure the wall or ceiling materials are
sturdy enough to support the weight of the speaker.
Speaker Installation In Existing Construction
(See Fig. 3)
Once you have selected the location for your speakers, you are ready to install them.
You will need the following:
• Stud Finder
• Drill & Drill Bits
• Wire Cutter/Strippers
• Utility Knife or Drywall Saw
• Small Level
• Masking Tape
• Phillips Screwdriver
• Speaker Wire
NXG recommends the use of a minimum of 16-gauge wire. For wire options consult
your retailer or custom audio contractor.
1. NXG Architectural Speakers are designed to be installed in the wall or ceiling area
between studs. Using a stud finder, make sure you are between two studs. Using the
supplied template, tape the template to the ceiling and lightly trace around the inside with
2. Cut the hole using your drywall saw. You may want to start with a small hole in the
center of the outline. This will allow you to check for any obstructions that may exist
behind the desired location. CAUTION: Be certain electrical wiring, water pipes or heating
ducts do not interfere in the planned installation areas prior to drilling or cutting the wall.
3. Run speaker wire from your amplifier, volume control or speaker switching device
to the speaker location.
4. Carefully remove the grille and inner grille backing. (Note: The open cell foam inner
grille backing is designed to hide speaker components from view and may be removed if
desired.) If you like the standard white finish of your NXG speakers, skip to step 5, but if
if you want your speakers to blend in with a colored wall or
ceiling, now is the time to paint your speaker’s outer frame
and perforated grille. (Remove the foam inner grille backing
and put it aside in a clean and dust free area for later reinstal-
lation if desired.)
The speaker’s outer surface will accept ordinary latex wall
paint or aerosol spray paint. Because the speaker baffle
surface behind the grille should remain unpainted, you will
need to cover this area with the supplied cardboard paint
mask. Cover the speaker’s interior black surface, woofer and
tweeter. Paint the outer speaker frame and grille separately.
(Grille painting hint: Use a paint roller that is nearly out of
paint to first paint the inside of the grille, then the outside.
This will avoid paint filling the grille perforations.)
