What's the best way to install this box on sheet rock ceiling board?
By Customer Service - Q&A on October 10, 2011
Answer:The box is meant to either mount to the Ceiling joist or to be suspended from the ceiling when dealing with a drop down ceiling. it sounds like you will be mounting the sheetrock to the joists so...
The box frame is 17 3/4" by 18" with the actual box meant to fit between two standard ceiling joists with the flange either screwed or nailed directly into the bottom of the Joist. Their is also a lip on the box which helps when cutting out the ceiling tile. Plus, once the box is secure it will help support the weight of the speaker as well.
Note: You can also increase the effectivess of the box by adding a fiber fill...
A significant increase in the effective volume of a sealed-box loudspeaker can be achieved by a filling of fibrous material, typically fiberglass, bonded acetate fiber (BAF) or long-fiber wool.

I am looking for a round back box to fit the 6.5 or 8in speaker. Do you make one?
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 20, 2013
We do not make a universal back box but offer a rectangular back box that fits between the ceiling joists that was created to be used with a couple different models of our In-ceiling speakers. We do offer speakers double duty as 8-ohm residential speakers or 70V commercial speakers. Check out the ICE620ST or ICE800ST which feature round back boxes. These are sold as each.

What is the dimensions for the can itself? I need it to fit between studs 16-in on center. the dimensions you give are they including the flange?
By Customer Service - Q&A on January 21, 2013
The dimensions are as follows:
17 3/4" x 18" x 5"
The box itself measures 13 1/4" x 16 3/4" at the base and 12.5" x 16" at the top. It was designed to fit between two ceiling joists 16" apart on center and 6" deep. It also feature a loop on the top in case it needs to be secured by a wire in a drop down ceiling. The opening hole for the 6" speaker is 8 1/4" and and has a flange that is 3/8".

Yes this would go before the sheet rock in for pre-construction.

I am looking for the same style enclosure or in top hat design for 6.5" speaker but for outdoor,water use it will be exposed. Have you seen or make anything similar that is sealed or maybe out of plastic or pvc?

We do feature commercial-grade speakers with back-box enclosures; however, these models are not classified as weather-resistant. We offer rock, patio and garden speakers that are weather resistant; however, it sounds like you already have the speaker and are trying to find a proper enclosure for your application. Sorry I could not be more helpful.
