These rough-in kits are just the thing to get the wall opening right. I had to modify them a bit - made narrower with tin snips and drilled extra holes but they are easy to work with.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Perfect templates to install prior to sheetrock. Had to drill some extra holes in one to fit the studs but was no problem. They started sheet-rocking the next day. I went to check on progress and the drywaller had already cut out the hole for the speaker. We had not even discussed it.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

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.
