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.
Label
Plastic Bag
REAR
LEFT
SPK
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.

Planning For Upgrades/Access
Route speaker wires through keypad gang box locations to facilitate
access to the speaker wires. In areas using volume controls, it is advantageous to run Cat-5 wire to each volume control location to make
it easy to upgrade to keypads or touch panels in the future.

Wiring (cont’d)
If not using speaker rough-in brackets, staple speaker wire runs in a
loose zigzag between the studs where the speaker is to be mounted
to make it easier to find the cable after the drywall is installed. Zigzagging the cable also allows flexibility in the placement of the
speaker.

In-Ceiling Stereo Speaker Pairs
There are three common scenarios for connecting stereo speaker
pairs to a distributed audio system:
• One 4-conductor speaker wire runs from the amplifier to one
speaker with two conductors connected. The second two conductors are spliced and connected to a 2-conductor speaker wire that
runs to the second speaker.
Amplifier

Mounting
Two situations that can exist when mounting in-ceiling speakers:
Pre-Construction - Installations that occur in new homes being built
and in remodel situations where walls and/or ceilings will be exposed.
Retro-Fit - Installation that involve existing homes with walls and
ceilings finished.
While the end result of either type of installation is similar, the process
is quite different.
Pre-Construction
In a pre-construction installation, walls and ceilings are open with
no drywall installed. This is desirable and allows the installer much
greater access than in retro-fit applications. ELAN model BKT8C
Rough-In Brackets are specifically designed to work with the THP800
and 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.
BKT8C Rough-In Bracket
Note: THP800C is compatible with the BKT8C only. It is NOT compatible with the M•Series 8" in-ceiling rough-in bracket; the BKT800C.
Referring to the floor plan marked with component locations, install
all speaker rough-in brackets. Make sure that the bracket frame is
facing out for drywall cutting accuracy. All rough-in brackets must be
securely mounted to ceiling studs and cannot be installed after the
drywall is up!

Mounting Rough-In Brackets
1. Decide on the installation location for the speakers.
WARNING: Be sure mounting
locations are clear of high-voltage
wiring, pipes, or other obstructions.
2. 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.
3. Secure the bracket assembly to the ceiling joists with flat-head
screws or heavy-duty staples.

4. Once the drywall is installed, carefully and accurately cut out
the speaker holes using a routing tool or similar device. A drywall
professional may perform this step.
After the drywall is up and the the holes are cut, the Speaker Frame
and Speaker Grille may be removed for painting (see Painting for
more details). It is also possible to install only the speaker frame and
speaker grille. Remove the speaker baffle until the jobsite is secure
then replace it when the final installation is taking place.

Mounting Speakers in Rough-In Brackets
1. Remove speaker grille and place speaker face down.
2. Locate the speaker wire and pull through the ceiling opening.
3. Connect the speaker wire. Be sure to observe correct polarity!
4. Insert the speaker into the opening in the ceiling and carefully
tighten each of the four clamping screws, alternating diagonally
between each screw position to ensure proper fit.
5. Once the speaker is mounted in the ceiling, twist the baffle to
point the mid-range driver at the listening area, then point the
tweeter. See Pointing Speakers for details.
7. Set the EQ and Bass switch. See Setting Switches for
details.
8. Replace the speaker grille.

INSTALLATION MANUAL
THP800C
Retro-Fit
Retro-fit installations are more difficult to complete than preconstruction because walls and ceilings are intact. Typically wires
must be fished into position through walls, floors and ceilings. Holes
must be cut and speakers mounted directly in the ceiling with no
rough-in brackets. Before cutting holes in any existing wall or
ceiling surface, probe the cavity behind each speaker’s installation location for obstructions!
Cutting Speaker Openings in Ceiling-No Rough-in Brackets
1. Use a stud finder to locate the studs around the intended
speaker location.
Note: A stud-finding device may not detect pipes, wiring, or
other obstructions located behind the drywall.
2. Use the inside portion of the speaker cutout template to confirm
speaker placement.
3. Remove templates and drill or carefully punch a pilot hole in the
ceiling. A bent piece of wire or a coat hanger may be use to
probe the stud bay for obstructions. If you experience resistance
of any kind–– STOP! If any obstructions are detected, patch the
pilot hole and try again in another location.

4. Once it has been determined that the cavity is free from obstruc
tions, position the cutout template and use a pencil to lightly
trace the perimeter of the template.
5. Cut the opening using a keyhole saw, drywall router, or razor
knife.

Speaker Enclosures
In certain applications, it may be desirable to build enclosures for
TheaterPoint in-ceiling speakers. In these situations, use the guidelines presented below.
Note: The THP800C is 7" deep. Provisions must be made for this
depth when mounting the speaker in ceilings with 6" joists or less.
2 x 6 Joists
When installing TheaterPoint in-wall speakers into a pre-construction environment using 2" x 6" (or greater) ceiling studs, airtight back
boxes may be constructed. The following chart gives the aproximate
volume of back boxes built for the THP800C. Measurements shown
in the chart are outside dimensions. Back boxes are typically constructed of 2" x 6" lumber and 3/4" MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard)
and should be made to fit between studs. Use glue or silicone sealant
at all joints.

Speaker Enclosures (cont’d)
The completed enclosure should look similar to the drawing below.
When designing an enclosure to dimensions other than what is listed
in the chart on the previous page, ELAN recommends using a height
to width ratio of 1:1.5 in order to reduce resonance. The dimensions
shown in the chart take this into consideration.
Fill Material
It is important to use some type of material to fill the enclosure to
the percentage indicated in the chart on the previous page (75% for
the THP800C). This will reduce vibration and give the enclosure the
characteristics necessary for optimum audio performance. ELAN
recommends using fiberglass insulation or polyester fiberfill for this
purpose.
Note: Make sure that any fill material does not touch the speaker
magnet or the back of the cone. Place fill material on outside edges
of enclosure.

Sound Dampening Material
The use of sound dampening material such as Dynamat® can dampen
bleed-through into adjoining rooms and improve the sound quality of
in-wall or in-ceiling speakers by reducing vibrations. The diagram below shows a typical in-ceiling speaker installation using sound dampening material on the back wall and the baffle surface (the ceiling
surface in which the speaker actually mounts). Additionally, there are
products available that are specifically designed to reduce vibration in
architectural speaker applications.

Pointing Speakers
TheaterPoint speakers are specifically designed to produce outstanding audio quality when properly placed in relationship to the listening
area. Human hearing relies on mid-range and high frequencies to determine spatial direction (where a sound is coming from). Mid-range
and high frequency drivers (tweeters) tend to produce narrow soundfields that sound much better when pointing directly at the listener
whereas low frequency drivers (woofers) envelop much larger areas
and tend to be more omnidirectional. The woofer fires downward,
but the low frequencies it produces are not directional in nature.
With this in mind, the THP800C’s baffle rotates 360 degrees so that
the mid-range and tweeter can point directly towards the listening
position. The tweeter can be fine-tuned using ELAN’s exclusive
TheaterPointer Laser Pointing Device for pinpoint sonic accuracy in
Home Theaters and critical listening applications.
Pointing the Mid-Range
Once the audio system is connected and the speakers have been
completely installed (with the grilles off), it is time to point the midrange driver at the listening area.
1. Ensure that the LOCK screw located on the speaker baffle is loosened by turning it counter-clockwise.
LOCK
Screw
2. Twist the speaker baffle so that the angled mid-range driver is
pointing in the desired direction. It may be easiest to utilize the
bridge that the mid-range and tweeter are mounted on to physi
cally turn the speaker.
3. Turn the LOCK screw clockwise to tighten the speaker baffle
and lock it in place.

Pointing Tweeter
TheaterPointer Laser Pointer
All TheaterPoint speakers include ELAN’s exclusive TheaterPointer
Laser Pointing Device for precise tweeter adjustment. Because the
human ear relies heavily on high frequencies to locate sound, and
because high frequency drivers create a narrow soundfield, it is important to align tweeters precisely. Stereo imaging, surround sound
effects, and dialogue are greatly improved by correctly pointing the
TH800C’s tweeter!
To Correctly Point the Tweeter:
1. Move the tweeter so that
it points toward the desired listening position.
2. Turn TheaterPointer on by
pressing the power button.
3. Place the TheaterPointer
into the triangular hole
located on the tweeter’s
protective cover. Notice
the red spot of
light coming from the
TheaterPointer.

4. Fine-tune the position of
the tweeter such that the
red spot of light is pointing
directly at the center of the
listening area.
5. Repeat this process for
each TheaterPoint speaker
in the system.

Setting Switches
Once the speakers are wired, mounted, and positioned correctly, use
the EQ switches to fine-tune the speakers based on local environmental variables such as hardwood floors, thick draperies, etc. The
two EQ switches are labelled “EQ” (Equalizer) and “BASS”. The EQ
switch compensates for the “liveness” or “deadness” of the room
while the BASS switch cuts bass by aproximately - 20dB.
EQ Switch
Select the W (Warm) position on the EQ switch to compensate for
“live” rooms where sound bounces and reflects from hard surfaces
like tile or hardwood floors, large glass surfaces/windows, stone or
brick walls, etc. Select the B (Bright) position to compensate for
“dead” rooms where sound is absorbed by soft materials like heavy
drapes, thick carpeting, upholstered furniture, etc. Use the N (Neutral)
position if no compensation is required.
BASS Switch
Select the + position for normal bass operation if the speaker is used
full-range without a subwoofer. Select the - position to reduce bass
frequencies by aprox. 20dB. The - option is designed to protect the
the speaker during high volume operation and should only be used
when a subwoofer is present in the system.
Painting
All ELAN TheaterPoint speakers can be finished to match any room
décor. Their white, textured frames and no-rust aluminum grilles
readily accept most water-based interior latex and spray enamels.
We recommend the grille and frame be painted separately. To aid in
frame painting, a plastic paint shield is included that will protect the
speaker baffle.
Painting Tips:
• If not using spray paint, it is recommend that the paint be thinned
to prevent clogging of the speaker grille perforations.
• When painting, several light coats will yield the best results.

Applications
All TheaterPoint speakers have similar “voices” designed to work
together to create a seamless, high-quality Home Theater or critical
listening experience. ELAN strongly recommends installing TheaterPoint speakers in matched groups (Left, Center, Right, Rear, Sub) in
order to preserve the acoustic integrity of the source material. The
following section describes each TheaterPoint speaker in appropriate
applications with other TheaterPoint speakers.
Stereo
Certain TheaterPoint speakers lend themselves very well to stereo
critical listening applications. Please keep in mind that a defined
stereo listening area must be present in order to acheive maximum
benefit from stereo placement.

Home Theater
It is essential to use voice-matched speakers in any Home Theater
application. Sound emanates from each speaker in turn, and all
should sound the same. TheaterPoint speakers satisfy this requirement perfectly, and should be used in combinations shown in the
following section.
Center Channel Positioning
A center channel speaker should be placed as close as possible to
the video display utilized in a Home Theater. In-wall center channel
speakers should be mounted immediately above or below the screen
as shown below. If using a cabinet speaker like ELAN’s THP525LS or
THP650LS as a center channel, position it on a stand immediately below the screen. A Center Channel speaker can also mount on a shelf
above the screen - possibly in a cabinet or entertainment center.

Subwoofer Positioning
Subwoofers are considered to be omnidirectional. They produce low
bass frequencies that are not especially localized. The human ear
does not rely on these frequencies to place sounds in space therefore, placement is not as important as with other types of speakers.
Place subwoofers along the front wall of the room approximately 2-3
feet from the corners. Expect a 3-9dB bass boost if the subwoofer is
placed directly in the corner of a room (called “corner loading”). It is
usually not advisable to place subwoofers directly next to the seating
position in a Home Theater.

6.1/7.1 Surround Sound
6.1 and 7.1 surround sound systems utilize additional rear and/or rear
side speakers to enhance the audio effects contained in a soundtrack.
Any of the previous examples can easily become a 6.1 or 7.1 system
by changing the configuration of the rear channels. The diagrams in
this section show rear and side rear speakers only!
6.1 Systems
Typical 6.1 systems use two rear side speakers with a center rear
speaker. Several logical combinations can be created using TheaterPoint speakers as shown in the following examples.
