Overview: When planning speaker installations in new
construction many installers find it useful to install rough-in brackets onto
wall studs or ceiling joists so that the sheetrock contractor knows precisely
where to cut the appropriate size holes. The DI Series rough-in brackets were
custom designed from the ground up to be easy to install. The "arms" are metal
mesh and can easily be attached to wood or metal studs using nails, dry-wall
screws, or construction staples. The arms easily detach and can be positioned at
various points around the bracket to accommodate unusual stud/joist locations.
The mounting bracket is heavy gauge steel that will not bend or break with rough
handling and sloppy drywall cutting by subcontractors. The convenient wire tie
loop is scored to allow easy snap off once the speaker is installed.
Compatibility: The DI 5.5LCR rough-in bracket is compatible
with Definitive Technology's dual 5.5" Disappearing In-Wall LCR Loudspeaker (DI
5.5RLCR). DI Rough-in Brackets are packaged two to a carton (2 mounting rings
and 4 mounting arms). Mounting screws not supplied.
Metal Brackets: The mounting brackets are fabricated from
heavy duty painted stamped steel. There are no sharp metal edges to cut an
installer's hands and they are ultra rigid, so that when drywall is laid over
and cut the brackets will not bend or break. The mounting bracket requires
rectangular cutout that measures 6.5" (w) x 14.375" (h) x 0.375" (d). The outer
dimensions of the mounting bracket are 8.625" (w) x 15.8125" x 0.8125" (d).
Mounting Arms: The metal mesh mounting arms snap onto the
center ring in a variety of positions to cover almost any installation. The
wings can be attached with nails, staples or screws; and can be bent and easily
trimmed with tin snips. They are also thin enough to make stud notching simple.
The wire tie loop easily breaks away when the speaker is installed. The mounting
arms measure 12.4375" (w) x 1.9375" (h) x 0.5625" (d).
