Installing In Wall Speakers

This article will give you all the information you may need for installing your “In Wall Speakers.” What if I say, you don’t really have to be a technician to install them? You may be thinking I am out of my mind but with a little bit of guidance and some basic tools, you will be able to impress your friends. People already are trying to save as much space as they can. It looks as if it is a concern of everybody these days. People are getting rid of their old fashioned and bulky speakers by changing them with In Wall Speakers for their stereo systems. This not only helps them save their floor space, but they also find it a little more aesthetic in comparison.

First of all, you need to see if there are any rules and regulations set by the local authorities that may require any permit to change the structure like ceilings and walls of your residence? After going through all that processes, you must first check the layout of your house so that you can know the number and positions of studs used in the proposed place of installation. As a thumb rule, studs are kept 16 inches apart from each other. After marking exact locations of these studs, you can begin with your installation works. Caution: Do not damage studs as they can be supporting the structure.

When it comes to installing audio wires... the most popular among all is the push-pin style. You will need a pair of easily distinguishable wires (red and white) to push them in place according to their polarities. Red it used to denote positive while white is used to denote negative polarity. Always mark wires so that you can know where the wire is heading! These wires should be fixed firmly with the studs at a distance of every 3 feet.

In Wall Speakers will normally go not more than 3.5 inches into the wall to accommodate the standard 2/4 studs used in most of the residential buildings. What is needed to be known here is that if you are installing these speakers in condominiums or townhouses, you will need specialized In Wall Speakers which require less space in wall. The reason is that, there are 2/3 studs used in these particular places.

Strange but true! What most of the people overlook at the time of their planning is what is on the other side of the wall? Do not forget that sound is going to penetrate not only the front side of the wall, but also the back side of it. Make sure the adjoining room at the back side of that wall is not the place where you don’t want that sound to go!

You can also make that room sound proof! You can use certain products like Polk to isolate the place where you are installing your sound system. Polk is also known as performance enclosure due to its application. It is wide enough to fit the 16 inches gap between the studs so that it can work as a sound-barrier.
