In-Ceiling Installation: The JBL C-series in-ceiling loudspeaker is designed for standard drywall ceilings and drop ceilings with at least 3/8" thick wall material.

- Make sure to leave at least 1" of open space (without obstruction) around the cutout above the ceiling, so the speaker's locking mechanisms will have room to engage fully.
- Be sure that there are no studs, lengths of conduit, pipes, heating ducts or air returns in the ceiling cavity that will interfere with the speaker.
