Please check following parts.
There should be one box with powered speaker enclosure
unit with unpowered speakers unit, and another box with two
unpowered units.
(4) of Speaker Grilles
(4) of Electrically isolated ceiling tile bridge, Pre
Construction Mud Ring, or Metal C-Ring
(1) Power supply. (No power supply is included for EFS.
EFM, EPS, and EPM series)
When removing the speakers from the packaging, please make sure
that you keep the paint masking card board in a safe place for any
painting that is to be done after the installation.
For Hard Lid Ceiling Installations-Retro Fit (Drywall, Gypsum,
Wood, or other non-removable material)
Remove the parts to be installed from the shipping box. Each
speaker set includes the main speaker enclosure, one retro fit metal C
ring (SACSD), and one snap on grille. Powered units include a power
supply that can be terminated with an “N” plug or a two position
Phoenix style plug.
Select the desired location for the speaker. Please make sure to check
for any obstructions behind the desired area. Studs, electrical, or
HVAC systems should be noted on building plans.
Remove the ceiling tile from the selected speaker location that is to
be cut from the ceiling, and an adjacent ceiling tile for access.
Place the metal C Ring in the selected location, and use a pencil to
mark the inside diameter of the C ring. Using a rotozip, hand saw, or
other material cutting device, cut along the pencil marked area.
Using a vacuum with a hose while cutting will reduce the debris
during this process.
Place the tile to be cut, finished side down, on a flat surface. Place
the tile bridge, in the desired location, on back of the tile. Make sure
the edges of the tile bridge will rest on the grid portion of the ceiling.
Mark the speaker hole with pencil, using the hole of the tile bridge as
the template.
Dry fit the speaker in the hole to make sure you have proper
clearance and that the speaker slides in easily. Place your tie off on
the structure above. Now place the metal C ring in the ceiling. Due
to the opening in the C ring, you will have to turn the C ring into the
hole and set it on the top of the hard lid.
Place the marked tile onto an empty open box or trashcan, to catch
any debris. Please make sure to have appropriate clearance for the
saw blade and cut the hole with a “plunge’ hand or power saw.
Make any wiring connections, with the speaker below the hole.
Attach the wiring according to the speaker model and type of
connectors on the top of the enclosure. For Phoenix type style
connections use the following schematics, paying close attention to
the polarity and position. For N type power and RCA style line level
connections, use the schematics, paying close attention to the polarity
and position.
For Suspended Ceiling Installations
Replace cut ceiling tile in ceiling. Lay the tile bridge in the ceiling,
lining up the hole in the tile bridge with the hole that was cut in the
ceiling tile. IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT to make sure the
tile bridge is oriented so it is supported by the lip of the grid.
Fully insert the speaker from below through the hole in the tile and its
tile bridge support, making sure to hold the speaker carefully to avoid
damaging the speaker cone. Start tightening the screws on the face of
the speaker can. Continue, checking to make sure the dog ears
(flippers) are fully extended, and that the tile bridge is sitting flush
against the tile. Make sure to keep a secure hold on the speaker until
the dog ears are fully tightened, clamping securely onto the tile
bridge and ceiling tile. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN! Secure the
speaker to structure above the ceiling with provided metal strap.
Attach the speaker grille, taking note to insert tabs all the way. The
end of the tabs on the grill, when correctly installed, will be slightly
above the tile bridge and between the tile bridge and speaker. If you
find that a tab has gone underneath the tile bridge, gently pull the tab
toward the speaker until the tab pops into place slightly above the tile
bridge and between the tile bridge and speaker. The grill will seat
flush or level against the ceiling. Any gaps between the grill and
ceiling may indicate that the tab in that area has not ‘snapped’ in
place. Failure to make sure the grill is ‘snapped’ in place could lead
to the grill falling out.
Fully insert the speaker from below through the hole, taking note of
where the opening of the C ring is at. ALL DOG EARS
(FLIPPERS) MUST BE SEATED ON THE METAL PORTION
OF THE C RING. Failing to due this may cause damage to the hard
lid, during tightening or during grill installation/removal. Please
make sure to hold the speaker carefully to avoid damaging the
speaker cone. Start tightening the screws on the face of the speaker
can. DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN.
Attach the speaker grille, taking note to insert tabs all the way. The
grill should ‘snap’ in place, if it does not you must loosen the dog
ears (flippers) and adjust the seating of the speaker. The grill will
seat flush or level against the hard lid. Any gaps between the grill
and hard lid may indicate that the tab in that area has not ‘snapped’ in
place. Failure to make sure the grill is ‘snapped’ in place could lead
to the grill falling out.
For Hard Lid Installation- New Construction
The only difference between the retro fit installation and the new
construction is that the pre-construction mud ring (MD8) is used.
The mud ring is placed between two studs, metal or wood, prior to
the hard lid being installed. Installation after the hard lid is installed
is identical to the retro fit instructions above.
