Features

Overview: This pre-construction bracket kit will aid you in new construction of Polk Audio LCi, RCi, and TCi In-Wall/In-Ceiling Loudspeakers. This kit is not meant to support the weight of the speaker, it is only for placement. The PB LC80i bracket kit comes supplied with two plastic frames, 4 snap-on plastic wings and 12 sheetrock screws.  Each plastic frame features strain relief wire guides to help with connection of your speaker wire to your in-wall/in-ceiling Polk Audio loudspeaker. The supplied wings snap into the frames and are used to span your home's vertical studs and attach to your studs via the supplied mounting screws. The Wings feature breakaway segments, which can be used to custom fit the wings between studs.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Great customer service led me to the correct speakers for both a 5.1 system and whole home audio. These speaker rings made it very easy to visualize the speaker placement and get the wire to stay where it needs to be. We haven't finished the speaker installation yet, so this review is just for the drywall rings - but so far so good. I agree with previous reviewers in that the price could certainly be lower, but for an old house with uncertain joist locations, it worked for us.

Useless item, don't waste your money

Written By Anonymous, NC on Sunday, August 21, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Don't waste your money on this item! It does you no good. It does not mount the speaker no matter what any one tells you!!! The speaker does not connect to the mount or get any support from it. Use the template that comes with the speakers and hang for the sheetrock guys and they will know exactly what to do. I was told I could use these to hang speakers on my porch with a vinyl ceiling so I bought them and found out otherwise. The instructions specifically state that is not to be used as a mount, and it really can't. The speakers are meant to hang straight off the sheetrock. The product description is not clear and the tech told me it would support the speaker, but it does not. These guys are the greatest but this is a misunderstanding. You can accomplish as much with a pen and a piece of poster board and save the money.

Effective, but terribly overpriced for what it is - a piece of plastic.
