The Bose® rough-in kit are manufactured with quality metal creating an in wall support system that ensures much easier drywall cut outs for new construction or remodel. Highly recommended!

Pros: Ease of use.

Cons: None.

These sheetmetal templates are not needed for a good installation in new construction. The paper templates that come with the Bose 191 speakers would work just as well. Save yourself the money and use the paper ones.
