Figure 8. The OS loudspeakers can be mounted three ways.
MOUNTING METHODS (CONTINUED)
Be careful to use hardware that is designed for the surface you are mounting to. The OS 5.3
loudspeaker with the bracket weighs 5-1/2 pounds. The OS 6.3 loudspeaker with the bracket
weighs 6-1/2 pounds. The OS 7.3 loudspeaker with the bracket weighs 9 pounds. We recommend
using attachment methods capable of supporting ten times the weight of the loudspeaker
Some local building codes require the use of an additional safety cable to mount loudspeakers on a
wall. If so, the 1/4"-20 threaded insert on the rear of the enclosure can be utilized for securing the
safety cable to the enclosure. Construction of the safety cable and attachment of the cable to the
wall need to meet the local building codes.
If you are not sure of a safe way to mount the loudspeakers or are unsure of your local building
codes, consult a professional installer or a building contractor for the proper installation techniques
You will maximize the useful life of the loudspeaker by placing the loudspeaker so that it receives
less exposure to the elements. Look for the best overall compromise between sound quality,
convenience, and exposure. Do not compromise safety.
