Do These Speakers Require a Back Box? Back boxes are not required because in-wall speakers use an infinite baffle design. This allows the speakers to work in various size spaces, like inside a wall. OSD Audio Speakers can adapt to a broad range of enclosure sizes and can be installed with or without an enclosure (with infinite baffle, the wall cavity becomes the enclosure). There is a tradeoff, however. Without a back box, sound may bleed to another room. This may or may not be issue but if you decide to build an enclosure, it needs to be at least 5 to 6 inches to accommodate the depth of the speaker. Also, it's not a bad idea to ad fiberfill inside the cavity, which can be purchased at any hardware store.
For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.
The IW690 is capable of handling the most demanding digital audio signals in home theater systems and listening rooms of intermediate size. The IW690 is flagship in the 6.5” Series; featuring a 1” aluminum dome tweeter and Kevlar woofer for remarkable clarity and bass response.
Kevlar is best component for woofer, it responds note for note without coloration and has big cranking power so you can dial up your system for higher listening levels.
