How to Install Kitchen Speakers
Mount speakers into your kitchen ceiling and outdoor wall for clear surround sound with these simple step-by-step instructions.
To keep the drywall dust away from the monitors, install the speakers first. Measure from the wall to get the horizontal placement of the two outermost speakers. Then, measure down from the ceiling for the height.
Use the templates that come with the speakers to trace the speaker shape onto the wall at the correct position (image 1). Use a drywall saw to cut the shapes (image 2).
To install the speakers, attach the speaker wires. Insert the speaker into the opening and tighten it into place. Special tabs keep the speaker positioned. Once the speaker is in place, pop the front grill back onto the speaker.
Slide the TVs into position. Use a rotary tool to remove any excess base on both monitors.
Install tiny infrared emitters to control all the TVs with one remote.
Position the frames around the upper monitors and nail them into place.
Slide the plasma screen back board into the opening and against the back stops. Strike the barrel bolts with a hammer to mark the frame, and drill a hole at each of the marks. Replace the back board and tap the bolts into the holes to secure it. Add a few extra screws around the edges.
Attach the bracket to the back board mount, and connect the cables. Slide the plasma screen back into the opening.
