What do you do if your speaker opening needs to butt up against a stud? Next Level Acoustics has developed the “Flush Stud” mounting system. Instead of using a dog-ear or a rail mounting system, 45-degree screw channels adorn the sides of the speaker that are flush against the wood stud. Once the speaker is placed into the wall, long screws pass through the routed channels into the stud securing the speaker. The channels may be requested on one side, or all of the sides of the speaker depending upon the mounting application required.
