Perhaps more than any other audio product, speakers are sensitive to installation
so please take a little time to read this manual and to follow, as far as practical, the
installation guidelines it contains. Careful installation will help ensure that your
speakers perform optimally.
This manual covers the Aelite Custom Install Series In-wall and In-ceiling speakers.
Following this introduction, the Manual is divided into sections covering,
positioning, connection, installation and listening, We recommend that you read
at least the first three sections carefully before installing and using your speakers.
Warranty and contact information is provided on the last page.
Speakers are relatively delicate precision engineered products that can be
damaged by inappropriate handling. Please take care when unpacking or handling
the speakers not to touch the drivers. Damage to a driver will at best degrade
performance and at worst result in complete failure.

Aelite Custom Install In-wall speakers are intended to be used in either stereo hi-fi,
multi-channel home theatre or high quality distributed audio systems.
The location of speakers within a listening environment is likely to have more
influence over their subjective performance than any other aspect of installation. It
is worth spending some time considering both the finer points of speaker location,
as well as the larger scale issues of room and speaker layout. Almost certainly your
speakers will be used in one of two applications:
• Stereo or home theatre system where the location of speakers relative to
each other is important.
• Utility “background sound” applications where single speakers are used in
isolation to “cover” a specific area or areas.
These two types of application are covered in the paragraphs below.
Aelite Custom Install speakers are magnetically shielded so may be positioned in
relatively close proximity to magnetically sensitive equipment and media.
Stereo and Home Theatre Speaker Positioning
If a pair of speakers is to be used in a conventional stereo audio system, or for the
front channels in a home theatre system, they should be positioned approximately
