OWNER’S MANUAL — Please read before using this equipment.

Your RadioShack 5 1 /4-Inch 2-Way Ceiling 
Speaker features a crossover, a  5 1 /4-inch 
woofer for rich lows, and a 1 /2-inch tweeter 
for crisp highs. The speaker can handle up to 
40 watts of music power. The wing-type 
mounting system makes it easy to mount 

your speaker flush with the ceiling or wall, 
making it ideal for unobtrusive use in a 
surround-sound system. The frame and grille 
can also be painted to match the room’s 


To mount your speaker, you need the 
following items (not supplied, available at 
your local RadioShack or online at

• drywall or keyhole saw

• wire stripper

• Phillips screwdriver

• pencil or marker

• 18–20 gauge speaker wire

1. Be sure the mounting surface is between 

/8 inch and  11 /4-inch thick, with at least a 

2 3 /4-inch clearance behind the mounting 
surface and no wall studs or other 
objects to block the back of the speaker.

2. Remove the inner cardboard disc from 

the supplied template/paint mask and 
keep it for later. Use the outer portion as 
a template to mark the cutout hole size 
and location for mounting the speaker.

If you choose to paint the frame and grille, 
paint them and let them dry before you 
connect the speaker wire or mount the 

To remove the grille for painting, insert a 
paper clip into one of the grille openings, then 
pull up. Or, you can carefully twist the plastic 
frame back and forth until the grille edge 
becomes exposed, then lift the grille to 
remove it. 

Carefully remove the dust cloth from behind 
the grill and replace it after you are finished 


You can also paint the frame to match your 
wall or ceiling. To prevent paint from entering 
the speaker, remove the grille and insert the 
supplied cardboard paint mask. After the 
paint is dry, remove the paint mask and 
replace the grille.

Your local RadioShack store sells a wide 
selection of speaker wire. We recommend 
you use wire that is color-coded or marked on 
one side to help you connect the wire 

1. Route the speaker wire to the speaker 

from the receiver.


2. Separate about 4 inches of speaker wire 

at each end.
