In wall speaker help
« on: October 19, 2009, 06:27:30 pm »

Hey all,

I need something that could be on par with say a JBL Control 29av or control 30  in an in wall speaker format.  For side mounting into a hollow soffet in a restaurant.

I am looking at the control 300 series but don't know how messy side mounting a back box would be..  bla bla bla.

I want something easy, and relatively high output.

There is a new Control 128 in-wall speaker. Never used it and I wonder how well it performs without an enclosure or back box especially if you compare it with the 29AV. It's pretty much a home in-wall speaker.

Get a rectangular wood-cabinet speaker and build a flange of angle-iron.  Cut, weld, grind and paint to match and screw to the cabinet around the perimeter.  Use Toggler-bolts to mount in the wall, you may have to make a plywood ring to reinforce the drywall of the soffit to studs or structure from the inside.

I do know parts express has a blank-baffle inwall cabinet if you want to customize something yourself.  Unfortunately it doesn't have a back-box and the cabinet-less design of most inwalls is their biggest downfall.

I just remembered that EV has an EVID inwall 6.2 now too

(If it's like the other EVID models, they paint very easily if white isn't desirable)

Did you look at the Control 128W in-wall speaker?  And although they may not have the same low frequency performance unless you also employ in-wall subs, I've had good luck with the Tannoy in-wall speakers.
