Speaker Support for “T” Bar
Drop-In Ceiling Grid
The Current Audio Speaker Tile Support Bridge is a load
bearing mounting frame for loudspeakers with expanding
11 5/8”
transverse dog-leg clamps. These Tile Bridges are for use in
2’x2’ and 2’x4’ Drop-in “T” Bar type suspended ceilings. The
Speaker Tile Support Bridge prevents ceiling tile sag by
distributing the speaker weight to the ceiling's support System.
The Tile bridges comply with the mechanical and acoustical
requirements of UL1480(UUMW) and UL2043 test standard.
The one piece noncorrosive steel construction Tile Bridge is
designed for strength and durability and are thoroughly tested
for undesired resonance. The one piece construction is easy
to install and saves on install labor.
13 ¾”
The mounting frame serves as a template for the installer to cut
the proper size hole for the intended speaker and to provide
the proper placement position.
Two sizes accommodate most 6” and 8” speakers.

Packaging and Enclosed Parts
Please inspect your pack for damaged or missing parts. Notify your supplier if any discrepancies occur.
The TB6 an TB8 are sold as each.
Mounting Instructions
Simultaneously stack one or more ceiling tiles, face up, over a large trashcan. This will catch all the debris and provide an effortless work space.
Find the center of the tile. Since the Tile Bridge is 23½‘”, you can find the center by lining the Tile Bridge up on the long edge. The opposite is side is
now at the center line of a 2’x4’ ceiling tile. See figure “Find Center of Tile”
Line up the arrows on the TB6 or the small pilot holes on the TB8. See figure “Centering Hole for Cutout”.
Now lay the Tile Bridge on the center of your stacked Tiles. After verifying the center draw a circle using the Tile Bridge as a template.
Cut a hole with a fine tooth drywall saw on the “outside” line of your circle through all tiles at once. This will save a lot of time.
Place the flat side of the Tile Bridge on the unfinished side of the tile with the ridges of the Tile Bridge facing up. Now insert tile back in the grid.
Pull your wire through the hole and make the connections to the speaker or speaker transformer. Suggest installing a SpeKap.
Carefully insert the speaker into the hole of both the tile and Tile Bridge and follow the instructions supplied with your speaker.
Note: Some people prefer to install the speaker in the tile and bridge and then insert back in the grid.

Speaker with SpeKap
• When handling ceiling tiles use only the tips of your fingers or white gloves to prevent smudges and hand prints on the tiles.
• Allow about 24” of wire to connect speaker. Cut off excess at speaker install.
• Prewire the speakers after plumbing and electrical and prior to insulation.
• The speaker placement should approximately 16-22” away from walls.
• To prevent standing waves Do Not make the distance from the back wall the same as the side wall.
• Do NOT use any existing holes for running speaker wires. Drill new holes for speaker wires. Wires can be pinched or melted from pipes.
• Do NOT run speaker or A/V wires parallel to electrical wiring this could induce crosstalk and AC hum.
• Keep all speaker and A/V wiring at least 16” away from all electrical wires.
• Cross electrical wiring at right angles to reduce cross talk.
• Keep the speaker wires somewhat loose to allow for building expansion.
• Use the SpeKap breathable membrane net to keep blown-in insulation, rodent droppings and debris from falling into the ceiling speaker that could
cause vibrations and/or dampen the performance of the woofer.
