PRODUCT OVERVIEW
The illustration shows how a
typical JobSite LSC loudspeaker
mounts into a ceiling.
Ceiling Bracket serves as a “hole
saver” when drywall has not been
applied. Cannot be used when
installing into existing ceilings.
Knockout wire tie allows the wire to be
secured to the bracket throughout the
new construction process. It knocks out
cleanly when the speaker is installed.
Wings instantly snap into
the bracket without screws.
Dogs swivel 90°, then
clamp the speaker frame
to the drywall.
Frames are molded with a
slight texture to assure good
paint adhesion.
Wings are scored for easy
size trimming.
Mounting screws tighten the
“dogs”, clamping the speaker to
the drywall.
Brackets and wings attach
to the ceiling joists with
nails or screws.
Rust-proof aluminum grilles make the loudspeaker perfect for moist environments.
PACKAGE CONTENTS
■ Speakers x 2
■ Speaker grilles x 2
■ Speaker cutout template / paint mask x 1
PREPARING FOR INSTALLATION
If you are installing the LSC-BG into an existing
ceiling, take time to consider any possible
obstructions which may be hidden inside
the ceiling: ceiling joists, electrical wiring,
telephone wiring, plumbing, AC or heating
conduit and ductwork.

Determine the best mounting locations based
on the room layout. Before cutting any holes,
make sure the area behind both speakers is
clear for installation. Speakers provide the best
coverage, when centered in the room. Line
up the speakers with a permanently mounted
ceiling fixture such as can lights,
or a light fixture.

Figure 1
If you are installing the speakers into a new
ceiling follow the above recommendations and
install a set of JobSite NCB-6 Ceiling Brackets,
prior to the drywall being installed.
Run speaker wire from each location to the
amplifier location. Label the speakers wires
at the amplifier end, so you know which wire
goes to each speaker.
TOOLS REQUIRED
■ Stud Locator (for existing construction)
■ Drywall saw (for existing construction)
■ Pencil (for existing construction)
■ Cordless screwdriver with No2 Philips bit
■ Wire stripper
■ Wire labels

INSTALLATION
Installation Existing Construction:
1. Use a stud locator to identify the location
of the ceiling joists on each side of the
proposed loudspeaker mounting location.
2. Mark ceiling joists’ edges, using
masking tape.
3. Repeat this process for the other
loudspeaker locations.
4. You may have to adjust the loudspeaker
mounting locations based on how the
ceiling joists line up with the proposed
speaker mounting locations.
5. Check for clearance using the following
method:
a. Drill a 1/4” pilot hole in the center of the
intended speaker location.
b. Cut a foot-long piece of coat hanger.
c. Bend the wire, creating a right angle,
leaving 4-1/4” at one end.
d. Poke the “L-shaped” wire into the pilot
hole and turn it in a complete circle,
checking for obstructions.
e. Push it up into the ceiling cavity to
make sure you have approximately
4” of depth.
f. If the coat hanger’s movement is
obstructed by anything, fill the hole(s)
with spackle and try another location.
6. Locate the hole template and remove
the inside portion of it. The inside portion
can be used as a paint mask, if you are
painting the frame of the loudspeaker.
7. Use a pencil and hole template to trace
the hole outline in the desired location on
the ceiling.
8. Use a drywall saw to cut along the
penciled line.
9. Strip 1/4” of insulation from the end of
each wire coming from the amplifier.
10. Tightly twist the end of each wire until no
frayed ends remain.
11. Attach the speaker wires to the speaker
terminal connectors. Connect the
negative output from the amplifier to the
black terminal and the positive output to
the red terminal.
12. There are four clamps “dogs” which
hold each speaker in place. Rotate all
the dogs inward.
13. Insert the loudspeaker into the cutout in
the ceiling.
14. The dogs are tightened via four
front-baffle screws. Tighten the dogs
by turning the screws clockwise,
while pressing the loudspeaker against
the ceiling. NOTE: DO NOT OVER
TIGHTEN THESE SCREWS. Overtightening the screws may make the
grille difficult to install.
15. Install the grille into the speaker.
16. Repeat this procedure for the next
speaker.
New Construction Installation:
Install the proper ceiling bracket for this
loudspeaker (NCB-6) using the instructions
supplied with the bracket. After the
hole is cut in the drywall per the bracket
instructions, perform the following steps:
1. Strip 1/4” of insulation from the end of
each wire coming from the amplifier.
2. Tightly twist the end of each wire until
no frayed ends remain.
3. Attach the speaker wires to the speaker
terminal connectors. Connect the negative
output from the amplifier to the black
terminal and the positive output from the
amplifier to the red terminal.

the dogs inward.
5. Insert the loudspeaker into the cutout in
the ceiling.
6. The dogs are tightened via four

by turning the screws clockwise,
while pressing the loudspeaker against
the ceiling. NOTE: DO NOT OVER
TIGHTEN THESE SCREWS. Overtightening the screws may make the grille
difficult to install.
8. Install the grille into the speaker.
9. Repeat this procedure for the next
speaker.
holes. Paint both sides of the grille to cover
all the white paint.
OPERATION
Listening at Higher Volumes
It requires more power to achieve a
reasonable volume of sound in a large
room than it does in a small room. It is
possible to turn the volume so high that
the amplifier runs out of power. This
creates “clipping” distortion.
Clipping distortion makes treble sound very
harsh and unmusical. When you hear harsh
sounding treble from any good speaker,
turn the volume down immediately! You are
much less likely to damage a speaker with
a large amplifier because it will be more
difficult to produce clipping distortion.
Removing the Grilles:
SPECIFICATIONS: LSC-BG
To remove the grille from the LSC-BG, obtain
a small paper clip (size #1, common) and
bend the last quarter inch of it into an “L”
shape. Holding the paper clip with a pair of
pliers, insert the end with the “L” into a hole
near the edge of the grille. Remove the grille
by pulling the paper clip towards you.
Power handing:
5 – 75 watts
Painting the Speakers:
The speakers must be masked prior to
painting them. The inside circular portion
of the hole template can be used as a
paint mask. Remove the outside portion
of the template by gently pulling along the
perforation. Affix the mask to the front of the
speaker using a piece of tape. Fold the tape
onto itself to form a double-sided loop. Affix
the tape to the tweeter and place the mask
onto the speaker.
Frequency response:
55Hz-20kHz +/- 4dB
Impedance:
8 ohms
Dimensions:
9-1/4” outside frame diameter
8” diameter hole cutout
2-3/4” deep when installed in 1/2” drywall
Ceiling Bracket for New Construction:
JobSite NCB-6 (sold separately)
Warranty: 5 year limited
Painting the Grilles:
The LSC-BG grilles should be painted
before they are installed on the speakers.
The best results will be obtained by using a
spray gun or airless sprayer. Thin the paint,
and then apply several light coats. This
technique helps prevent clogging of grille
