IN-CEILING SPEAKERS
Installation and Instruction Manual
Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of RBH Sound in-ceiling speakers! Your speakers are
the result of many years of research and development dedicated to producing high
quality products for home audio and audio/video systems.
This manual is designed to give you, the installer or owner, basic information as to the
speaker’s installation and operation. We recommend you thoroughly read through the
material contained in this manual before installing your speakers. This will ensure that
you have an understanding of how to setup your speakers for optimum performance
and allow for years of listening enjoyment.
Break In Period
Allow several hours of listening time to adequately break in the speakers. As the
speakers break-in, the driver suspension will loosen. The result of break-in will be an
increase in low frequency response, improved definition, clarity and detail.
Features
All RBH Sound in-ceiling speakers feature a swing out dog leg mounting system
with pre-started screws for fast and easy installation. Most RBH Sound in-ceiling
speakers feature directional swivel tweeters to direct the sound to the main
listening area. All RBH Sound in-ceiling speakers feature polyswitch protection
circuitry designed to protect the tweeter from being over driven. This circuit will
automatically reset itself once the volume is turned down or the problem causing
the circuit to activate is removed.
Steep acoustic slope crossovers are used to integrate the drivers. The use of steep
crossover slopes allows high power handling, minimized driver interaction anomalies,
and maximizes the clarity with which each driver is able to produce its respective
frequency band.

Painting the Speaker and Grille
A paint shield is included with your speaker. This shield can be used to protect the speaker
when painting the speaker’s rim (frame). If you plan to paint your speakers, we recommend
it be done prior to installation. If you decide to paint your speakers sometime in the
future, it is best to remove them from the ceiling or wall.
•When painting speakers, the paint shield provided in the packaging must be installed in
place of the grille. The grille can also be painted.
• Painting the speaker’s grille should be done with a paint sprayer set to fine for best results.
•Remove the grille from the speaker, peel off the grille fabric on the back of the grille
and set aside.
•Place the grille on a flat surface and clean thoroughly with a non-residue solvent.
•Follow one of the methods below for painting the speaker and grille.
NOTE: Do not use a brush or roller on the grilles as this will clog the holes, greatly
reducing the sound quality of the speakers. Do not paint the grilles while attached to the
speakers. Be sure to remove the paint shields from the speakers and replace the fabric to
the back of the grilles before reinstalling them and using the speakers.
The most effective way to paint perforated grilles. Here are a few painter’s tricks that work well.
Spray can or paint sprayer method:
1. Start with the inside (rear), this painting process will cover most of the perforated holes.
2. Clogged perforations can be cleared with a shot of compressed air or an air compressor.
3. Let the grille dry sufficiently.
4. Working on the front side, apply the first coating in a light dusting spay. If using
a spray can tilt to about a 45 degree angle, let it dry for 15 minutes, then spray
another light dusting spray for the second coat until the whole surface is covered.
5. A third or fourth light dusting spay coat may be required, but “DO NOT OVER SPRAY”.
6. The grille must be completely dry before installing onto speaker.
Water based paint method:
1. Add about 30% water (based on paint volume) to the water based paint to thin and mix well.
2. Dab paint over inside (rear) of the perforated grille lightly using clean rag or foam material
3. Clear clogged perforations with a shot of compressed air or an air compressor, if needed.
4. Let dry for an hour.
5. Dab paint over front side of the perforated grille with a rag or foam material.
6. Must let dry 20-30 minutes between coats.
7. Once completed, let dry for a couple hours before installing onto speaker.

Room Setup Suggestions
With nearly endless placement options, careful consideration for placement of the
in-ceiling speakers needs to be considered, as installation requires cutting a hole
in your wall or ceiling! When using speakers in home theater applications follow the
guidelines illustrated below.
Swivel Tweeter Placement
The swivel tweeter allows sound to be directed toward or away from the listening
area depending on the application. A tweeter aimed toward your listening position
improves imaging and detail. When using a speaker with a swivel tweeter as front/
main home theater speakers or as stereo speakers in a distributed audio system, aim
the tweeter toward the main listening position. For rear/surround speakers, aim the
tweeter toward the nearest reflecting surface (an adjacent wall or ceiling) for a more
diffuse sound field (for more direct sound, aim the tweeter at your listening position).

Speaker Installation
RBH Sound in-ceiling speakers are designed on an infinite baffle configuration. This
means a back box is not required for the speaker to perform properly. RBH Sound
in-ceiling speakers have also been designed to make installation as easy as possible.
Upon opening the speaker boxes you will notice that the screws are pre-started into
the dog legs. The basic idea behind in-ceiling speakers is the speaker is held in place
by sandwiching the speaker and the drywall. A frame around the speaker conceals the
cutout in the drywall and presses against the front of the ceiling. Behind the ceiling,
the speaker has a set of dog legs which cinch the speaker to the drywall.
CAUTION: Be certain there are no electrical wires, water pipes, heating ducts or any
other obstructions in the planned area of installation before starting to drill or cut
into the ceiling or wall. If there is an electrical outlet nearby, turn off the circuit
breaker to avoid possible injury.
Installing WITH a New Construction Bracket:
If using a new construction bracket for the size of the speaker being installed,
cutting the drywall should not be necessary. Continue with “Connecting the Speaker”
instructions on the next page.
Installing WITHOUT a New Construction Bracket:
Use the cutout template supplied with the speaker for
guidance in cutting the drywall, following “Using the
Template” instructions below.
Using the Template:
1. These speakers are designed to be mounted between
the framing members. Use a stud finder to locate the
positions of joists and rafters. Make sure you have a
2-inch clearance from the outside of the cutout hole
from joists and rafters.
2. Drill a 1/4-inch hole in the center of the area you
plan to mount the speaker. Cut or bend a piece of
wire (a coat hanger works well) to a 90-degree angle.
Insert the wire into the pilot hole and fish around to
make sure there aren’t any obstructions which will
interfere with the installation.
NOTE: If you must choose another location, the pilot
hole can be easily patched.
3. Once a suitable location is found, use masking tape to
temporarily place the supplied cutout template on the
ceiling or wall, centered over the pilot hole. Draw a
circle around the inside edge of the template.
4. Carefully cut the hole with the appropriate cutting tool to remove the material
inside the circle inscribed by the template.

Speaker Installation (continued)
NOTE: The frame will overlap the cutting edge by about a 1/2-inch which will
mask any minor cutting inaccuracies.
5. Confirm the speaker easily fits into the hole, without any gaps.
Connecting the Speaker:
6. Pull the speaker wire out of the hole and connect the
speaker. Split the two conductors of the speaker wire
apart about 3-inches so they form a “Y”. Using wire
strippers, remove about 1/2-inch of insulation from
each of the two conductors of the wire to expose the
bare metal and twist each of the conductors into a
single unfrayed strand.
The speaker terminals will accommodate any speaker
wire up to 14-gauge. Select an appropriate wire gauge
from the following chart:
18 gauge for up to 50-feet
16 gauge for up to 100-feet
14 gauge for up to 200-feet
NOTE: When connecting a speaker it is very important
to retain the correct polarity (improper polarity will
cause reduced bass performance and unnatural imaging
effects). To do this, be sure the wire attached to the
positive terminal on the speaker (marked [+] or colored red) connects to the
positive terminal on the amplifier. Similarly, the negative terminal (marked [-] or
colored black) must connect to the negative terminal on the amplifier.
Finishing the Installation
7. Slide the speaker into the pre-cut hole in drywall or new construction bracket
keeping the speaker cable above and out of the way to prevent pinching it.
8. Tighten the screws. The dog legs will automatically swing out and tighten
(pinch) themselves against the new construction bracket or the drywall with
the turning of the screws and will hold the speaker solidly in place. Don’t over
tighten screws, if you over-tighten the screws the speaker frame may bend which
will make it difficult to properly install the grille.
NOTE: If using a drill/driver, set the clutch to a low setting to prevent over
tightening and possible damage to the frame or dog legs. If using hand tools,
tighten just until firm.
9. If the speaker has any tone controls or has a pivoting tweeter, leave the grille off
until you can listen to the speaker. Once the speaker is adjusted, install the grille.
NOTE: Handle the grille carefully, as they pressure-fit into the installed speaker.
If the grille does not install easily, try loosening the mounting screws before
resorting to forcing the grille onto the speaker.

Speaker Accessories
Back Cans
Back Cans (BC’s) attach neatly and directly to the back of
in-ceiling speakers to prevent sound from being transferred
into adjacent floors or rooms. Back cans on in-ceiling
speakers are needed to meet building code requirements in
select areas. All RBH Sound back cans are UL rated.
Blank Plates
Blank plates are a very clean and efficient way to cover the
holes left in drywall when a new construction bracket is
used or a speaker is removed. Install blank plates when
in-wall/in-ceiling speakers will not be immediately
installed after drywall is finished.
New Construction Brackets
Back Cans
Short Back Can
An excellent way to guarantee placement of in-wall and
in-ceiling speakers prior to drywall installation, New
Construction Brackets (NCB’s) also make installation
of in-wall and in-ceiling speakers faster and easier by
reducing time and mess. Once drywall is installed, just
connect the speaker to the speaker wire and install.
New Construction Brackets eliminate the time and need
to locate and cut drywall before speaker installation.
Blank Plates
Quick Install Brackets
Quick install brackets are exactly what their name
implies; affordable speaker installation brackets that
are no-brainers to install.
New Construction Bracket
Metal Tile Bracket
This metal bracket is designed expressly for
commercial use with in-ceiling speakers, but can be
used with most RBH Sound 6½-inch in-ceiling speaker
model . The MTB-6.5 metal bracket distributes the
weight of the speaker and keeps the speaker in place
in the event the suspended ceiling tile the speaker
is installed in becomes damaged. This bracket can be
adjusted and slid into position before the self tapping
screws are tightened down, making installation much
easier than the competition’s brackets. This bracket is a
must for meeting most building code safety standards
for speaker installation in suspended ceiling tiles.
