In Ceiling Speaker "Cans"
Hopefully I got this in the right forum. Apologies if I don't.
I'm looking to install two surround channel speakers in my ceiling. Right now I have the lucky advantage of having the entire ceiling torn out as we are in the middle of a major renovation. So I can see clear into the attic and all the studs etc. Eventually the ceiling will be replaced with dry wall and then blown in insulation will be "blown in" on top of that.
So my question is whether there is something similar to a recessed lighting "can" that can be preinstalled between the studs for ceiling speakers? The idea is that I would put this can in then maybe then even run conduit from that over to my walls and down. Then when the ceiling goes back up and the insulation is back in I don't get covered with insulation falling down on me when I cut the hole in the ceiling. I just have an nice can to pop the speaker into.
Using a recessed lighting can does come to mind and I'm going to go look at them tonight to see if that would work. Obviously the sound quality is a concerned because it would the can create a lot more echo? Perhaps fill it with packing insulation?
Or is my only real option is to build a box? 2x4s between the studs and slap down some MDF inside it to make a box?
Would love some suggestions and insight here.
