Pre-construction brackets for 6-1/2" Klipsch in-ceiling speakers
Our take on the Klipsch IK-650-C by Crutchfield's Loren Barstow
If you're building a new home, you can simplify the installation of the Klipsch® R-1650-CSM, R-1650-C, R-2650-C-II, CDT-3650-C, or CDT-5650-C in-ceiling speakers with these pre-construction brackets. Install them before the drywall goes up to mark the speaker locations for your builder, and you won't need to cut holes later. The metal wings attach to studs and joists via screws, staples, or nails.

What's in the Box:
- 2 Red in-ceiling speaker brackets
- Four 15.5" white perforated metal wings
I put this in a house I am building. It went in easy and will be a simple matter to cut the drywall around it. I haven't installed the speakers yet this gave them a great base to attach to.

Klipsch IK-650-C Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
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.

1 question already asked
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 ]
