I just bought a house and on the back patio there is a wood panel ceiling that has 2 holes that appear to have had speakers in them. The holes are rectangular and are 10 in by 7 1/2 in. Can you help me with getting the right size speakers for them? Thank you.

Hi Tom, It sounds like our 5.25" in-wall speakers would be the closest fit. They are about 9 5/8" x 6 1/8" but have about an inch wide trim around the perimeter that should cover the extra space. Or you can make the holes larger and go with some of our 6.5" in-wall speakers. See links below: 5.25" speaker: https://www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com/iwhideprose5.html 6.5" speaker: https://www.outdoorspeakerdepot.com/pgico.html Let us know if you have any questions. Thanks!

It seems like i dont get the best iut of my MK840 with this backbox. Is it recomended to use damp material In the box or use it as it is? What about a base reflex port.? Would that improve the sound? Gratefull for any type of help. Tobias

Hi Tobias, Dampening material will theoretically improve the sound. A port hole is questionable. I would try with just the dampening material first and see if that gives you good results. -BM 2307

Do I need a back box for 6.5 in wall speakers?
1 Answers
Hi Tim, Our in-wall speakers use an infinite baffle design, which does not require a back box. Although some customers add a back box, it is not necessary as the wall cavity acts as the speaker enclosure. CL/MA 1842

Is the BB8 back box for 8" ceiling speakers designed to fit inbetween ceiling joists that are 16" on center?
1 Answers
Hi Jay, The internal enclosure is 13.5" W x 5" H X 16 3/4" D so this will fit in your wall just fine 16" on Center. I hope that helps! CL 1437

Does this box work with the OSD ICE840TT speaker?
1 Answers
Hi Mark The hole opening of the OSD ICE840TT, 9.5" should work with the BB8 and its 9 3/4 opening. TL 1267

Will these work with the Yamaha NS-IW480CWH 8" speaker? I am planning to use the speakers in a church foyer that has a drop ceiling and about 6 feet of empty space above it.
1 Answers
Ron, The Dimensions are Hole Size: 9 3/4 Your speakers have a cut out of 9.4" so the back box opening is slightly larger. This should not be a problem. The back box will work for you. CL

What can I say they are metal back boxes
Best UsesIf your putting in-ceiling speakers where the insulation is blown then these keep the insulation out of the speaker.
