Introduction
Cinema Ceiling SUR1S and SUR.5S Speakers
Thank you for purchasing a Sonance Cinema® Series Ceiling
speaker. When properly installed, these speakers will deliver
film soundtracks and music with outstanding clarity and realism,
even in large home theater rooms. This manual covers the
Sonance Cinema Ceiling LCR1S, LCR.5S, SUR1S and SUR.5S
models.
5.1-Channel System
(see Figure 2)
• Place the left and right surround speakers on the ceiling 2 – 4
feet (0.6m – 1.2m) behind the listening position. The speakers
should be 8 – 12 feet (2.4m – 3.7m) apart, and oriented so
their driver panels face the room’s front and rear walls.
Box Contents
Each Sonance Cinema Ceiling speaker box contains the following:
(1) Cinema Ceiling LCR or SUR speaker
(1) Paintable grille
(1) Hex bit (for use with a cordless drill/screwdriver)
8' – 12'
TV
(2.4m – 5.5m)
(1) Mounting cutout template
Speaker Placement
Cinema Ceiling LCR1S and LCR.5S Speakers
The left, center, and right speakers should be located 8 – 18 feet
(2.4m – 5.5m) from the listeners. The height and size of the
television will largely determine this distance. As a rule of thumb,
higher ceilings will require that the speakers be placed farther
away from the listening positon. For example, if the television is
placed at eye-level and the speakers are installed in an 8-foot
ceiling less than 6 feet in front of the listening position, the
picture and sound could seem very disconnected.
The speakers should be located 3 – 4 feet (0.9m – 1.2m) from the
wall the television is on. All three speakers should be the same
distance from the wall. The left and right speakers should be
separated approximately 8 – 12 feet (2.4m – 3.7m) apart and be
placed 2 – 3 feet (0.6m – 0.9m) from the side walls. The center
speaker should be placed as close to the midpoint between the
left and right speakers as possible. IMPORTANT: ALL THREE FRONT
SPEAKERS MUST BE ORIENTED WITH THEIR MIDRANGE/TWEETER UNITS

(0.6m – 1.2m)

7.1-Channel System
(see Figure 3)
• L e f t a n d R i g ht S u r r o u nd S p e a k e r s : Place the left and right
surround speakers on the ceiling directly to the sides of the
listening position, 8 – 12 feet (2.4m – 3.7m) apart, oriented
with their driver panels facing the room’s front and rear walls.
• S u rr o u n d B a c k S pe a ke r s : Place the surround back speakers
on the ceiling 4 – 8 feet (1.2m – 2.4m) behind the listening
position. The surround back speakers should be 4 – 8 feet
(1.2m – 2.4m) apart, and oriented with their driver panels
facing the room’s side walls.

SONANCE CINEMA ® CEILING SPEAKERS
Before Installation
NOTE: A LL C INEMA C EILING
To remove the clamp caps, use a small screwdriver to gently
release the two locking levers (Figure 6, left). Then remove
the caps from the clamps (Figure 6, right).
SERIES SPEAKER MODELS HAVE THE
SAME INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS .
1.
Determine the location for the speaker (see Speaker
Placement, on page 1).
2.
Perform an obstruction survey to be certain that there are no
studs, conduit, pipes, heating ducts, or air returns in the ceiling
cavity that will interfere with the speaker.
3.
The cutout for Cinema Ceiling speakers is 12 3/8 " x 12 3/8 ”
(314mm x 314mm). I M P O R T A N T : T h e c e i l i n g M U S T h av e
a m i n im u m o f 1 6” o n - c e n t e r s t u d c o n s t r u c t i o n . There
must be at least 7 9/16” (192mm) depth within the
ceiling cavity for the speaker.
4.
In ceilings with standard 2 x 10, 2 x 12, TJI 110, or TJI 210
joist construction, the RotoLock clamps will deploy without
requiring modification (see Figure 4). The maximum ceiling
material thickness in this application is 1¼” (32mm).

6.
Position the included mounting cutout template where the
speaker is to be located and pencil an outline on the ceiling.
7.
Cut the mounting hole using a keyhole or drywall saw,
and run the speaker wire from the mounting hole to the
amplifier location.
IMportant: c onsult
local buIldIng codes before runnIng
speaker wIres through ceIlIngs and walls .
Installation
Sonance Cinema Ceiling Series speakers feature an integral
RotoLock® mounting system for quick mounting directly into
existing ceilings.

5.
AND
1.
Strip ¼” – ½” (6mm – 12mm) of insulation from each speaker
lead. Twist the strands or tin the exposed wire with solder to
ensure that there are no stray strands. (Stray strands that touch
each other can cause a short-circuit that can damage the
amplifier.)
2.
The speaker’s connector posts are spring-loaded.
Push the top of each connector post down to open the
connector and insert the exposed wires into the holes in the
posts. The speaker’s positive post is labeled with a red dot;
the negative post is labeled with a black dot. Double-check
that you connected amplifier “+” to speaker “+” and
amplifier “–” to speaker “–”. (See Figure 7.)
TJI210
In ceilings with TJI 230, 360 and 560 joist construction you will
need to remove the caps of the RotoLock clamps to allow the
deployed clamps to clear the joists (see Figure 5). The maximum
ceiling material thickness in this application is 5/8” (16mm).
