I built in-wall enclosure from MDF the internal volume of each box (left & right) is 1.39 cu/ft (5"x13"x37") lined with 1" poly-fill braced and sealed. My question is which speaker will be better suited for this given volume, STUDIO 2 55IW or 8IW?

Asked by: Loud n Clear
Between the 2 In wall speakers, we recommend the Studio 2 8IW that has less wattage versus the Studio 2 55IW. Therefore, it would be easier to power the 8IW, and it would be louder at lower volume.

Do I need any in-wall enclosure for studio 2 8IW, 8IC and 55IW speakers? and, brackets for in-wall/in-ceiling installation?

Asked by: Venki
No. These in-wall and in-ceiling speakers does not require any additional brackets for installation. They are already designed that when tightened down, would secure itself to your wall/ceiling.
