Cut and Place
First determine where the TSW-1050-FMKT mount will be located, keeping in mind that the
TSW-1050-FMKT mounts need to fit between two studs. To locate these studs use a stud finder (We
suggest using a high quality stud finder that can detect studs, AC cables and water pipes so that you
can avoid these in-wall obstacles).
Use a dust mask to avoid getting dust particles in you lungs
Wear eye protection to avoid getting dust particles in your eyes.
Turn off the power in areas you’ll be drilling to avoid electric shock.
Use plastic or canvas drop cloths to prevent the sanding dust from damaging nearby
furniture or spreading beyond you immediate work area.
NOTES: Observe the following points.
Use caution when installing the TSW-1050-FMKT, not to plunge into a pipe or electrical
For Low voltage use only.

Installation Tools and Materials
Safety goggles
Dust mask
Measuring tape
Utility knife/saw
Brush / sponge roller
Spackle tray
Coarse Rasp
Drywall T-square
Taping or joint knife
Pole Sander
#6 bugle head screws
Setting-type compound
Drywall mud or joint compound
Drywall Paper tape
When a favourable installation position is determined, drill a pilot hole in the middle. USE CAUTION
when drilling, not to plunge into a pipe or electrical conduit. When the hole is drilled, explore the
surrounding area, making sure there are no obstacles present and that there’s enough room for
the mount. While using the mount, a level and a pencil, mark the top and bottom horizontal edges
of the mount on the drywall. Continue each line to the closest stud centre. Cut the drywall according the top and bottom marked lines and stud centres using a utility knife or saw. After cutting the
drywall chamfer the rim of the opening using a coarse rasp.
Route adequate cabling to the installation point in accordance with your local electric regulations.
The TSW-1050-FMKT needs to fit between two studs and be installed on two horizontal supports
that are secured to the studs.
It is proffered that the TSW-1050-FMKT is mounted on two horizontal supports and at least
one stud. A good choice for horizontal supports are telescoping box mounting brackets that are
installed on stud face without bending their fixing plates. Horizontal supports may be made on site
of the drywall U tracks. When performing a retrofit work, insert the horizontal supports half way
under the top and bottom drywall edges of the opening. PAY ATTENTION UP / DOWN ORIENTATION
Fit the TSW-1050-FMKT into the opening, ensuring it is positioned square. When positioned correctly and levelled, secure the TSW-1050-FMKT through the holes located on its perimeter using
#6 bugle head screws.
Cut the appropriate drywall pieces and plug voids on the mount sides. Where the panels meet, cut
a V-groove into the short untampered ends with a utility knife, as this will make hiding the joint
easier when you’re taping. Secure all drywall edges to the studs and the horizontal supports.
Before painting, remove the protective tape from de microphone and speaker grills. PAY ATTRITION, AVOID PLUGGING THE MICROPHONE AND SPEAKER GRILLS WITH EXCESSIVE PAINT ALSO
DO NOT PAINT THE INTERNAL SURFACE. Paint and painting procedure are in the same manner
as drywall painting but avoid spray painting. Paint the number of coats necessary to achieve the
desired coverage and texture. After painting remove protective plug.
