Overview: The Dual DC265W is a
single, 2-way rectangular, in-wall speaker, part of the Architectural Series of
speakers. The speakers are designed to work within nearly all interior
decorating schemes where in-wall or flush-mounting is feasible.

Installation: After a
10-15/16" x 7-1/2" cutout is made (either vertically or horizontally), the speaker is
installed in the hole and held in place by a rugged plastic screw-set bracket.
The only tool required (after the hole is cut) is a #2 Phillips head screwdriver
to tighten the clamps. The clamps spread up to 1.375", so they should cover
almost any application (most drywall is 1/2" thick). The required depth to
install this speaker is 4". Note: Adding 3 to 4 inches of insulation
or damping material behind the speaker generally improves the sound quality.
