With high power handling capability and upgraded components, this model can be used for a 5.1 or 7.1 home theater surround sound systems and many customers have installed the IW540s in their bedroom, hallway, dining room, kitchen, even in the garage. No matter where you decide, the sound clarity produced by the 5.25-inch polypropylene woofer, silk dome tweeter and sophisticated crossover will make you wish you installed these speakers years ago.
Why choose in-wall speakers over regular speakers?Typically rectangular in shape (although we do offer square models), in-wall speakers are mounted in the wall and take up far less space than traditional box speakers. Customers love that wires are neatly concealed behind the wall and OSD in-walls can even be painted to match a room décor. Most in-wall speakers use the wall cavity as their enclosure or cabinet, which explains why in-wall must be installed to sound right. In-wall speakers come with special screws (called dog ears) that flip out and secure to the drywall (or other wall surfaces), a nearby stud, or a special frame attached to the studs. Custom installation frames (brackets) can also be purchased for a more secure fit or for lighter wall materials that require more support. In wall speakers are often categorized by the size of the woofer, not the size of the speaker itself.
For a retrofit installation, no construction bracket is needed.
