Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Drivers: The Energy EAS-6W rectangular in-wall speakers are equipped with the following drivers:
- Tweeter: 1" aluminum dome tweeter
- Woofer: 6-1/2" Injection-molded Homopolymer woofer
Surround: The woofer uses a NBR (Nitrile-Butadiene-Rubber) /
SBR (Styrene-Butadiene-Rubber) surround.
Speaker Terminals: The speaker has a pair of spring clip
can accept pin connectors or bare wire up to 12-gauge.
High Frequency EQ: A switch on the EAS-6W's circuit board (on the back of the speaker) allows you to contour the high frequency output. The 0 (zero)
position maintains a flat, even frequency response, while the +3dB position will
increase the sound output to the tweeter. The +3dB position should be used in
rooms with excessive sound absorption material, such as thick carpet, drapes,
Break-In Period: Energy recommends that you play the EAS-6W
for a 50 to 100 hour break-in period before playing at high volume and making final
sound adjustments. This is easily done by putting your compact disc player on
repeat mode while playing a CD with a wide dynamic range at normal listening
Installation: The speakers can be installed in new or existing
construction; each speaker requires a cutout of 7-1/2 inches wide and 10-7/8"
high, and is held in place with
six plastic mounting clamps. The required depth to install the speaker is
3-1/4" from the mounting surface (this includes the thickness of the drywall).
Behind the opening there must be a 7/8" clearance around the speaker to
accommodate the mounting clamps. Speakers should be installed in drywall at least 3/8"
thick. A cardboard template is included to assist you in making the cutout.
Two-Part Procedure: The speakers install in two stages.
First, the speaker can be removed from the bezel, so that the bezel can be
installed into the prepared cutout using a Philips screwdriver to tighten the
mounting clamps. Once the bezel is installed, the speaker can be installed into
the bezel, and attached with the six flathead mounting screws (supplied) using a
Paintable: Both the bezel and aluminum grille can be
painted to match the wall; a cardboard paint mask is included.
