Product Research


Overview: The Klipsch IK-650-C installation kit offers increased mounting flexibility for all of Klipsch residential in-ceiling speakers that employ a 6.5" woofer. This installation kit also fits Klipsch's commercial IC-5T in-ceiling speakers. This installation kit design incorporates two color-coded brackets for easy speaker size identification. A flat side with a raised wall allows it to be mounted directly to a joist, making it much easier to align the speakers with other items in the ceiling. The kit also comes with four perforated metal wings that easily fasten to the studs via screws, staples or nails. Ribbed for increased rigidity, these wings enable a kit to span up to 24 inches easily. Painted white for easy marking and placement, these metal wings will fold around the edge of the studs if necessary.

These brackets really help to ensure correct placement of speakers when finishing a basement. I have used them now in two different houses and they work great! [ David  Feb 24, 2017 ]

3 questions already asked

How about the cut-out dimensions that this provides once Sheetrock is up? I know it's a 6" woofer, but What is the diameter? 8.25"?
[ Joshua  Nov 30, 2019 ]

Hi Joshua, thank you for your question. These cutout brackets are designed for specific Klipsch speakers, all of which have a varying cutout diameters, such as 8 1/4", 8 3/16", and 8 5/16". Once these have been installed, the cutout diameter will be within these measurements. Hope this helps, and if you have any other questions, or need further information, please chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695. We'll be happy to go over these in further detail.

How many installation kit I would have to buy for 4 in ceiling CDT 3650, 4 in wall R3650, and 1 in wall center R-5502 speakers?
[ Alicia  Feb 12, 2018 ]

Each speaker requires one mounting ring and two metal straps. check with the Crutchfield team to determine if your size is sold as a single or a pair.
[ LARRY  Feb 13, 2018 ]
Is this for new construction or remodel?
[ Nathan  Feb 12, 2018 ]
it comes with 2 in a pack. I've installed quite a few in cieling speakers though and have come to the conclusion that the bracket isn't really all that necessary. It is helpful to get a good well measured hole, but outside of that, it isn't required
[ Irfan  Feb 12, 2018 ]
The CDT3650 and R3650 kits are two to a package so you will need two each. The R-5502 is one to a package so you only need one.
[ Rob  Feb 12, 2018 ]
