More details on the Definitive Technology DI 6.5R-6.5STR Rough-in Brackets

Russ B.

Product Research


Overview: When planning speaker installations in new construction many installers find it useful to install rough-in brackets onto wall studs or ceiling joists so that the sheetrock contractor knows precisely where to cut the appropriate size holes. The DI Series rough-in brackets were custom designed from the ground up to be easy to install. The "arms" are metal mesh and can easily be attached to wood or metal studs using nails, dry-wall screws, or construction staples. The arms easily detach and can be positioned at various points around the bracket to accommodate unusual stud/joist locations. The center ring is heavy gauge steel that will not bend or break with rough handling and sloppy drywall cutting by subcontractors. The convenient wire tie loop is scored to allow easy snap off once the speaker is installed.

Compatibility: The DI 6.5R/STR rough in bracket is compatible with Definitive Technology's 6.5" Disappearing In-Wall Loudspeakers (DI 6.5R, DI 6.5STR, and DT 6.5R).

Note: DI Rough-in Brackets are packaged two to a carton (2 mounting rings and 4 mounting arms). Mounting screws not supplied.

Metal Rings: The center rings are fabricated from heavy duty painted stamped steel. There are no sharp metal edges to cut an installer's hands and they are ultra rigid, so that when drywall is laid over and cut the brackets will not bend or break. The center ring requires a 7.3125" diameter cutout.

Mounting Arms: The metal mesh mounting arms snap onto the center ring in a variety of positions to cover almost any installation. The wings can be attached with nails, staples or screws; and can be bent and easily trimmed with tin snips. They are also thin enough to make stud notching simple. The wire tie loop easily breaks away when the speaker is installed.


  • Metal Ring: Diameter = 9.3125", Depth = 0.75"
  • Mounting Arms: Width = 12.4375", Height = 1.9375", Depth = 0.5625"
  • Overall Dimension: Width = 33.75", Height = 9.3125", Depth = 0.75"
  • Cutout: Diameter = 7.3125", Depth = 0.4375"

Are these required to install the speaker ?

If you are doing a new build, it helps to get the speakers in the right place and speaker wire in position. It also makes it easier and neater for the dry wall installers. Hope this helps.

No, they are not required. You cannot even use them if you're cut a hole in an existing ceiling. They make it easier to install you have an unfinished ceiling so the construction crew know exactly where to cut out the holes for the speakers. I only used on one of my four speakers.

Not at all required and would be completely unnecessary for existing construction... but if you are doing new construction and would like to locate your speakers in your ceilings BEFORE the drywall goes up... these are a nice way to accomplish that and then have perfect openings right where you want them.
