I can't get the face cover to stick back on. All the magnets are loose. They don't seem to stick to the speaker itself so the cover just falls off. Please help.

Asked by: SammyK
Hello, Sorry to hear about this. Did you confirm if the speakers are installed properly and flush with the wall so the grilles can correctly stick with the magnets? You may want to speak with our customer care team if you end up needing replacement grilles for your speakers, they can be reached at 800-377-7655 (Product Support)

Is this a 2-way or 3-way speaker? Looking at the product image, it appears it's a 3-way since the drivers look different, suggesting one is a woofer and the other is a mid-range. However, the product description says 2x 6.5" drivers.

Asked by: MrBond
Hello MrBond, The Polk Audio 265-RT In-Wall speakers are 2.5-way speakers using a cascading crossover design.

Is there a preconstruction template available to hang on wall studs for drywall to be cut out by wallboard contractor

Asked by: Casa Canale
Hello, unfortunately, the pre-construction bracket for the 265-RT is no longer available. The speaker does come with a cutout template allowing the speaker to be installed after drywall. Here are the cutout dimensions. 19 3/16" H x 7 1/4" W.
