Speaker Acrylic Mounting Tips
(for frameless acrylic designs)
IMPORTANT: Do not over tighten the mounting hardware. There should not be an issue with this hardware coming loose with the included nylon insert locknuts. Over tightening may cause stress marks on the acrylic or breakage. Designs that have been broken or damaged around the mounting holes will NOT be replaced.
IMPORTANT: Make sure everything is secured when mounting the designs. If being used with the Speaker Light Kit frames, make sure BOTH frames are attached and secured before mounting the designs. You may also want to have some extra hands to help you hold things securely when mounting them.
You will need a socket driver with a 5/16" socket and a small Phillips screwdriver.
Acrylics have mounting holes. The screws (included) go through the front of the mounting holes. You may add spacers (included) behind the design if you would like. The screws then go through the mounting area wherever you would like and then the nuts go on the back of the screws.
If you do not like the positioning of the design you may have to try a bit to get them positioned where and how you would like.
When you get them positioned as you choose, carefully snug the locknuts on the screws.
TIPS to make your designs look their best:
- These are designed to be used with back lighting. If they are used without the lighting, they may blend in and not be very noticeable at all, depending on the design.
- If you have a design that DOES NOT allow light to pass through the acrylic (black, a mirrored design that is not etched, etc.) they can be mounted in pretty much any configuration and what is behind the design will not really matter. With our without spacers or foam will not affect the look of the design. So on these designs you can choose to mount these as you prefer and they should look as intended no matter how it is done.
- If you want the foam behind the designs, be sure to put it down after the designs are mounted. After the designs are in the position you want and tightened, you will then have to remove each light frame ONE AT A TIME and put the foam in. It should lay on the the design's mounting nuts fine and then the light frame will be remounted over the foam.
- If you have a design that DOES allow light to pass through it (translucent or etched), you will want to consider what you have mounted behind the design.
- Adding spacers (included) directly behind the design helps their appearances but you do not want to have any foam behind the design. The foam does something to the backlighting that causes the mounting surface to show through the design. The spacers help to clean up the look of the design, but having the back clear (without foam) makes an even bigger impact on the look of the mounted, backlit design.
- Designs that do not allow light to shine through can be mounted with or without the foam and/or spacers however, the spacers add a nice, little bit of depth to the designs mounting.
