I just order a pair on M60, in-cabinet designs. I will be using them as in-walls - yes - I know they'll stick out into back room a little, but I wanted a full sized enclosure.
I've read the Axiom install brochure.
~ use template to cut hole in wall.
~ slide speaker into wall.
ok - any other advice?
Questions that spring to mind:
* I had assumed that I would also be attaching front flange of speaker to the wall surface - glue or screw from back. But the directions make no mention of it.
*Should I put some sort of thin gasket material between dryway and above mentioned flange to dampen vibrations, or do I instead want to firmly couple the speaker with the wall?
*OR do I just, as the instructions imply, slide it in and let it sit freely? Though I would still be worried about speaker vibrating against the wall...
* I will be building an enclosure around the rear end of the speaker on the opposite side of the wall - for appearence and to maintain firestop. Should I fill this space - probably three inches from each edge of speaker case - with some sort of fiber fill?
* lastly, I was wondering if anyone has thought of attempting to get some toe-in ussing a shim between wall and front flange of speaker. Alan recommended against it, but I just wanted to see if anyone had experimented with it.
