2-Way Driver Design: The CM610 utilizes a polypropylene woofer. A treated urethane surround increases the sensitivity and preserves durability. The speakers feature a 13mm (1/2"), fluid-cooled Kaladex tweeter for clear detailed highs.
Grilles: The speakers include two pairs of grilles. The white MicroPerf aluminum grille mounts flush for a clean look. The grille has hundreds of precisely sized perforations, creating an acoustically transparent grille. The aluminum construction resists oxidation enabling years of trouble-free operation in the harshest of conditions. The grille and frame can be painted to match any decor. Also included is a pair of recessed cloth grilles in a plastic frame. These grilles let the speakers masquerade as a recessed light fixture.
Weather Resistant: The CM610's weather resistant construction allows you to install them in damp environments such as bathrooms and indoor pool areas, as well as outdoors under eaves.
Mounting Options: The CM610 requires an 6-1/2" cutout. A cardboard hole template is included with the speaker to aid you in speaker placement. The speakers require at least 3-5/8" of depth behind the ceiling. You should make sure there are no obstructions behind the drywall before making the cutout. When installing the CM610, the following tools and materials are recommended:
- Cordless drill with 1/4" and 1/2" drill bits and a 1" paddle drill bit (for drilling through studs)
- Stiff wire, fish tape, or glow rods for routing cables
- Keyhole or drywall saw
- Phillips screwdriver set
- Wire stripper
- Stud finder
- Cable ties
- Rubber gloves and protective eyewear
Optional Bracket: The CM610 can be installed in any standard ceiling, in either new or existing construction. For new construction, it is recommended that an optional "hole-saving" bracket (CM600BKT) be used for a faster and cleaner installation. The bracket forces the drywall installer to cut out the speaker hole for you and provide wire ties for the speaker wire, reducing the risks of accidental loss or movement of the wires.
Code Recommendations: When running loudspeaker wire inside walls or ceilings, you must adhere to the National Electrical Code and any applicable provisions of the local building code. Please contact your local building or inspections official if you have questions.
