Easy In-wall Installation

Perry from Marion, IA on 10/8/2018

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I used this to install the center channel speaker in a new home under construction. The installation was easy with the supplied straps. You simply attach the straps to the bracket and nail it to the studs. The drywall is laid over it and a cutout tool creates the mounting hole. The speaker simply fits into the bracket and you tighten the 2 mounting screws on the speaker. It couldn't be easier. This speaker mounting system is the easiest in wall mounting system I have ever worked with.

Pros: Quick and easy

Cons: None

Must have for new construction!

Q & A

Customer Q&A

Crutchfield asked  
Why did you buy this?

It was a recommended accesory [ Gregory  Dec 01, 2018 ]
I have a Klipsch Center Channel (R5502WII) that is being installed. [ MONA  Nov 01, 2018 ]
I am building a house and my A/V guy suggested that I use pre-construction brackets. This is my second build and in the first one we just had the wires hanging from a small hole in the drywall and without the brackets, some of the speakers were a challenge to install. [ Rob  Mar 12, 2017 ]
For pre construction this makes it so much easier for you later if you are a DIY'er. Gives you the flexibility to place it where you want to knowing there is nothing behind it. [ Ronald  Nov 25, 2016 ]
Klipsch speakers sound better than any others I've heard. [ JOHN  Aug 31, 2016 ]
