Was trying to get some feedback on if there is a way to install a inwall center speaker that has a width 25 inches. I currently have a definitive tech UIW RSS III for left and right and a UIW 75 for center. I want to place a UIW RSS for the center as well but would have to cut 2 studs to make it fit. If I frame the cut out with 2x 4 would it be ok framing wise and making sure the load is sufficient for the studs . The studs also supports an 100 lb flat panel tv.

Cutting out two studs is not uncommon, just look at a wall with a big window. It is important to know what kind of wall you are cutting (loading bearing or simple partition) as it relates to how beefy your replacement framing needs to be and whether a header and jack stud design is required.
