Your RadioShack 5 1/4-Inch 2-Way Ceiling
Speaker features a crossover, a 5 1/4-inch
woofer for rich lows, and a 1 /2-inch tweeter
for crisp highs. The speaker can handle up to
40 watts of music power. The wing-type
mounting system makes it easy to mount
your speaker flush with the ceiling or wall,
making it ideal for unobtrusive use in a
surround-sound system. The frame and grille
can also be painted to match the room’s
decor.

To mount your speaker, you need the
following items (not supplied, available at
your local RadioShack or online at
RadioShack.com).
If you choose to paint the frame and grille,
paint them and let them dry before you
connect the speaker wire or mount the
speaker.
• drywall or keyhole saw
• wire stripper
• Phillips screwdriver
• pencil or marker
• 18–20 gauge speaker wire
To remove the grille for painting, insert a
paper clip into one of the grille openings, then
pull up. Or, you can carefully twist the plastic
frame back and forth until the grille edge
becomes exposed, then lift the grille to
remove it.
1. Be sure the mounting surface is between
3/8 inch and 11/4-inch thick, with at least a
2 3/4-inch clearance behind the mounting
surface and no wall studs or other
objects to block the back of the speaker.

Do not paint the speaker element. We
recommend you spray-paint the grille so paint
does not block the holes.
2. Remove the inner cardboard disc from
the supplied template/paint mask and
keep it for later. Use the outer portion as
a template to mark the cutout hole size
and location for mounting the speaker.
Carefully remove the dust cloth from behind
the grill and replace it after you are finished
painting.±
You can also paint the frame to match your
wall or ceiling. To prevent paint from entering
the speaker, remove the grille and insert the
supplied cardboard paint mask. After the
paint is dry, remove the paint mask and
replace the grille.

plumbing hidden behind the wall.

•
Avoid routing the speaker wire near electrical
wires.

Do not nail or staple the speaker wire.
Your local RadioShack store sells a wide
selection of speaker wire. We recommend
you use wire that is color-coded or marked on
one side to help you connect the wire
correctly.
2. Separate about 4 inches of speaker wire
at each end.
