Installation
•Ceiling installation should be located directly above the
listening area. In rooms larger than the bathroom or closet,
it is recommended to install additional speakers for better
performance.
•You may install a bracket where you will be placing the
speaker prior to installing drywall. Once insulation and drywall
is installed, you may cut the speaker hole.

•Use a stud-finder to locate the nearest wood or metal stud
and keep in mind the baffle flange will protrude outside of the
mounting hole.
Painting The Ceiling Speakers
•It is recommended to paint your speaker before installing into
your ceiling, or reverse the steps of installation to remove
the speaker for easy painting. For painting the installed
speaker, please use the paint mask in place of the grille. If
painting the grille, do not paint while attached to the speaker,
and be careful to not clog the holes, which will decrease
sound quality. VM Audio recommends only light spray
painting.
1.Using the included template, position and outline the hole
on the ceiling.
2.Cut the hole using a drywall saw.
Note: Be sure there are no obstacles in the cutting area.

8. Troubleshooting
• Check that the speakers are connected to the cable
correctly.
• Check that the speaker cable is connected to the receiver
amplifier correctly.
• Check that the receiver amplifier is powered “on” at the
mains, is not on “mute”, has no headphones attached and
that the channels used for the exterior speakers (usually A or
B) is in operation.
• Refer to the owner’s guide that came with your receiver
amplifier.
• Most initial problems are connectivity, please try a different
connection cable to your outdoor speakers or equipment.
No Sound
from One
Speaker
• Check the “balance” control on your receiver amplifier.
• Check all connections and cable to the inoperable speaker.
• Disconnect the “working” speaker from the receiver amplifier
connection/channel. Switch the cord from the non-operating
speaker from its current connection to the “working” speaker
connection. If the speaker now works, the problem is your
receiver amplifier.
• Reconnect as original. Remove the speaker cable at the
“working” speaker directly and connect it directly to the nonworking speaker. If the speaker now works, the problem is
somewhere in the original speaker cable.
Use the color coding of the wires to be sure that positive
goes to positive and negative goes to negative at all the
connection points.
3.Push one of the wire nuts onto the ends of the wires
and turn it until it is firmly set.
