Congratulations on your purchase of the AudioSource
AC Ceiling LCR Cinema Speaker. This product is
designed to reproduce the audio portion of your home
entertainment environment with accuracy and detail
that will satisfy the most discriminating listener.
Please read this Installation Manual to ensure the
proper installation and performance of your
ACLCR6C speaker.
Preparing for your Installation
Gather the necessary tools for your installation.
You will need the following tools:
1) A Keyhole or Drywall Saw
2) A Phillips Screwdriver
3) Masking Tape
4) A Pencil
5) A Tape Measure
6) A Stud Finder (recommended)
7) Your AC Series speakers
Plan your speaker placement carefully. Make certain
that electrical, plumbing and any other services will
not interfere within the ceiling where you plan to install
your speakers. The speakers should be located so
that they provide even coverage at your listening
position. The distance between the speakers should
not be greater than the distance from the speakers
to the listening position (See Figure 1). If the room’s
dimensions or furniture placement prevent adhering
to this requirement, the tweeters in the ACLCR6C
speakers can be swiveled to aim them at the desired
listening position.
New Construction
If you are installing your speakers in new construction
before the finished walls go up, AudioSource offers
New Construction Brackets, which provide a stable
frame that can be fastened to the wall studs or ceiling
joists on 16 or 24 centers. This allows the sheet
rock or other surface covering to be installed and
provides a template to cut the opening for the
ACLCR6C speakers.
Use a stud finder to locate the joists behind the ceiling
surface. Also, you should now check for obstructions
like cross bracing in front of and behind the desired
speaker location.
6.5” Ceiling LCR Cinema Speaker
Existing Construction
In most modern buildings ceiling joists are positioned
on 16” centers, providing a space between the joists of
approximately 14 3/8”. The ACLCR6C requires a hole
diameter of 8-1/8” (206mm). Additionally, you should
allow an extra 1in all directions behind the ceiling
surface to allow room for the screw clamps that mount
the speaker to the ceiling to swing into position.
ACLCR6C Design
The ACLCR6C speakers are specifically designed to
be mounted in the ceiling as front channel Left, Center,
and Right home theater speakers (Figure 1). The
ACLCR6C can also be installed for Rear channel
sound where conventional in-wall or floor speakers
cannot be used (Figure 2). The ACLCR6C can also
be used as a single center channel speaker, or in
conventional stereo pairs.
