Introduction
TheaterPoint BKT8C, BKT56W, and BKT800W Rough-In Brackets are
designed to be mounted during the pre-wire stage of a Home Theater
installation, enabling installers to identify and preserve the installation
location of ELAN TheaterPoint in-wall and in-ceiling speakers prior to
the drywall being hung. TheaterPoint Brackets feature interlocking
flanges (wings) which connect to the bracket frame and enable the
speakers to be mounted in almost any position. These flanges are
easily trimmed to fit exactly in the desired location making the installation neat, clean and easily accessed.
Features
• Interlocking Flanges for Flexible Mounting Options
• Identifies and Preserves Installation Locations
• Rugged ABS Construction
• Easy to Install & Trim Out

Installation
The installation process is divided into two distinct processes, wiring
and mounting. After carefully considering the intended application
(defining a Listening Area, Home Theater/Stereo, etc.) specific mounting locations can be decided upon. Once the specific locations are
determined, installation can commence.
Wiring
Before actually running any wire or cable, take the time to look around
each room or area of the house and plan the wire paths for maximum
efficiency. Look for routes through uncluttered parts of the stud
wall or ceiling that allow you to group all low-voltage wires wherever
possible. It is a good practice to label both ends of all cables and to
protect wires by tying a plastic bag over the ends.

Note 1: Low voltage wiring must be run in accordance with the National Electrical Code as well as any other applicable provisions of the
local building codes in your area. In some cases (such as commercial
installations), running the wire in conduit may be required. If you have
any questions concerning the wiring of speakers in your home, contact your local building and inspection department.
Note 2: It is recommended that you use quality CL2 or CL3 rated
stranded speaker wire when installing ELAN TheaterPoint speakers.
Solid-core “Romex” type wire is not acceptable! Use at least 16AWG
speaker wire for runs up to 100 feet, and at least 14 AWG speaker
wire for runs up to 200 feet. If you must cross high-voltage lines,
always do so at a 90 degree angle to avoid audible hum through the
speakers!

Wiring (cont’d)
The audio/speaker cable runs should be routed from the head-end
location to in-wall keypad, IR receiver, or volume control locations (if
applicable), then to the speaker rough-in brackets (if used). At the
speaker locations, securely fasten the speaker wire to the speaker
rough-in bracket.

Wiring (cont’d)
When pre-wiring in-wall or in-ceiling speakers, speaker wire runs
should be stapled in a loose zigzag between the studs where the
speaker is to be mounted in order to make it easier to find the cable
after the drywall is installed.

IMPORTANT NOTES:
• When the BKT800W Rough-In Bracket is mounted horizontally,
it will not fit in a standard wall stud bay. For horizontal mount
ing, the distance between wall studs must be at least 14 1/2".
For new construction scenarios, provisions must be made for the
width of the speaker if the BKT800W/THP650W will be mounted
horizontally. For retrofit applications, ELAN recommends either
mounting the BKT800W/THP650W vertically or using the
BKT56W/THP525W (mounted horizontally) for the center channel.
Since all Theater Point Speakers have matching voices when
used in combination, use the THP525W as a center channel
speaker and THP650Ws as the left and right channels of a Home
Theater.
• The THP800W uses the same rough-in bracket as the 8" M•Series
in-wall speakers; the BKT800W.
• THP800C is compatible with the BKT8C only. It is NOT compatible with the M•Series 8" in-ceiling rough-in bracket; the BKT800C.
WARNING: Be sure mounting
locations are clear of high-voltage
wiring, pipes, or other obstructions.

Pre-Construction
In a pre-construction installation, walls and ceilings are open with no
drywall installed. This is desireable in that it allows the installer much
greater access than in retro-fit applications. ELAN Rough-In Brackets should be used whenever possible to reserve a neat hole in the
drywall, ensuring proper placement of speakers and making trim-out
and final installation neat and organized.
Dampening The Wall Cavity
The performance of in-wall or in-ceiling TheaterPoint speakers will be
enhanced by using flame-resistant fiberglass insulation to dampen
the wall or ceiling cavity around and behind the speakers. This will
reduce the transmission of sound into adjacent rooms or floors while
enhancing the speaker’s bass response by deadening the sound
waves emanating from the rear of the woofers.
Mounting Rough-In Brackets
Referring to the floor plan marked with component locations, install
all speaker rough-in brackets. Be sure that the bracket frame is
facing out for drywall cutting accuracy. All rough-in brackets must
be securely mounted to wall studs and cannot be installed after the
drywall is up!
Note: Use the holes located on the bracket to secure speaker wire
before cutting drywall.

Mounting (cont’d)
• Decide on the installation location for the speakers, then attach the
bracket flanges to the bracket frame as shown.
Note: Make sure the dimpled side of the flange faces OUT and interlocks with the frame from the rear.
• Once the flanges have been attached to the frame, secure the
bracket assembly to the wall studs with screws or heavy-duty
staples.

Mounting (cont’d)
• After drywall has been installed, CAREFULLY and ACCURATELY
cut out the speaker holes using a drywall knife, routing tool or simi
lar device. A drywall professional may perform this step.
BKT56W
The BKT56W is specifically designed to fit between most standard
wall studs. Built-in Bracket Flanges allow the installer to mount the
BKT56W horizontally between studs without needing to attach separate flanges. External Bracket Flanges are provided for use when
mounting vertically.
Note: The BKT56W requires at least 14 1/2" clearance. If the wall
studs are not exactly centered at 16", the bracket will not fit correctly.

Mounting Speakers in Rough-In Brackets
1. Remove speaker grille and
place speaker face down.
2. Locate the speaker wire and
pull through the wall or ceiling
opening.
3. Connect the speaker wire.
Be sure to observe correct
polarity!
4. Insert the speaker into the
wall or ceiling opening and
carefully tighten each of the
clamping screws, alternating
diagonally between each screw
position to ensure proper fit.
5. Replace the speaker grille after
tweeter and EQ adjustments
have been made (see TheaterPoint
Speaker Installation Manuals for details).
To Avoid Stripping Mounting Brackets,
HAND TIGHTEN ONLY!
