How to guide

Step 1

Select a suitable mounting location for the speaker taking note of the Warning Notices above. Using the installation template supplied mark the speaker position and cut the mounting hole. 

Step 2

Make sure all equipment is switched off.  The speaker cable should be stripped back ~10mm so that there are bare wire ends. Remove the packaging and protective dust cover from speaker and attach the speaker leads using the pushdown spring clip terminals at the rear of the speaker. The positive conductor should be connected to the red terminal and the negative conductor to the black terminal.

Note: Tweeter output level adjustment (‘P’ & ‘CW’ versions)

It is recommended to leave the switch in the ‘0’ position for the initial sound check.

Step 3

Check that each of the 4 swing out clamps are rotated inwards. Push the speaker through the mounting hole and position flush with the ceiling. Whilst holding the speaker in place tighten each of the mounting screws using a No. 2 Pozidriv® screw driver in the order shown in the diagram (left). When an increase in resistance is felt the clamp is in position.

Step 4

Once the speakers are installed they should be tested before the grilles are fitted. The 8” Performance in-ceiling stereo speaker feature a swivel tweeter that may be adjusted allowing the high frequencies to be directed towards or away from the normal listening position as required. The tweeter’s outer frame (not dome) should be pushed gently to achieve the desired tweeter position. 

Step 5

The 8” Performance in-ceiling stereo speaker features a magnetic grille, locate the grille over the speaker bezel where it will be pulled into place. Note that square grilles may be positioned at any angle required.

Some models feature a white backing cloth behind the grille to help minimize visual contrast with the ceiling. For the very best sound performance it is recommended that this cloth is removed before use. To remove simply peel away the backing cloth from the grille.
