I just bought a set of 5 TC615is to use for a 5.1 HT setup in my new prewird house. As in another thread on this forum, the builder put low voltage boxes attached to the studs, cw with a blank cover plate for all the pre wires.
If I try and install the speakers to cover the existing openings (2" x 3") they are basically going to be against the stud. If I can notch the stud to allow for the toggle brackets to engage, is this a good idea? Will having the speaker so close to the stud affect its performance, ie. should it be centered between the 2 studs? Does anyone have any experence with this?
Even if I close up the builders openings and center the speakers for the RLand surround, the space between the studs where the center channel is wired is only 7 1/2" the same size as the cut out required. Any ideas?
