We recently built our home and had it prewired for surround sound in the family room. The builders put junction boxes on the studs where the speakers would go. We had trouble finding any details on how we could install the speakers on our own with these junction boxes being on the stud and not have to cut into the ceiling joist/stud. We definitely did not want to leave the plate cover on the ceiling and put the speakers somewhere else on the ceiling!
So we decided since we were able to do it ourselves then we would make this video to help anyone looking to do this on their own. It saved us plenty of money and is not hard to do.
If you are a little hesitant to cut into your ceiling or wall then stop by your local hardware store such as Home Depot or Lowe’s and then get a 4×4 or small scrap piece of sheetrock and practice on it first.
We got our speakers from Monoprice.com.
