Proper placement of the
speakers is an important step in
obtaining the most realistic
soundstage possible. These
recommendations are for the
optimum placement of the loud-
speakers. Use these placement
recommendations as a guide.
Slight variations will not dimin-
ish your listening pleasure.
The front speakers should be
placed the same distance from
each other as they are from the
listening position. They should
be placed at about the same
height from the floor as the 
listener’s ears will be, with 
the tweeters aimed toward the
listener at ear-level height.
In a home theater configura-
tion, the two surround speakers
should be placed slightly be-
hind the listening position and
ideally should face each other
and be at a level higher than
the listener’s ears. If that is not
possible, they may be placed in
a wall (or in the ceiling) behind
the listening position, facing
forward. The surround speak-
ers should not call attention to
themselves. They should
provide a diffuse, ambient
sound accompanying the main
program material heard in the
front speakers. In Dolby* Digital
and DTS
®
systems, aim the
tweeters toward the listening
position at ear-level height.
MODEL SP6CS 
Model SP6CS has the capability
of playing two channels
through one loudspeaker,
thanks to its dual-tweeter/dual-
voice-coil construction. Since
the tweeters are close
together, in general they should
be aimed away from each other
for best coverage. 
For two-channel (stereo) appli-
cations, e.g., as a single
speaker in a remote room of a
distributed audio system, install
the SP6CS speaker centrally in
the ceiling for best stereo imag-
ing, swiveling the tweeters so
that one points toward the left
and the other toward the right
of the listening position, aimed
at ear-level height. 
The SP6CS may also be used to
play the left and right surround
channels in a 5.1-channel home
theater system, in which case it
should be mounted in the ceil-
ing slightly behind the listening
position, centered from left to
right and with the tweeters
pointing toward the left and
right of the listening position,
aimed at ear-level height. For
7.1-channel systems where it is
desired to use two SP6CS
speakers, one to play both the
left surround and surround
back channels and the other to
play both the right surround
and surround back channels,
mount each SP6CS speaker in
the ceiling, slightly behind the
listening position, one closer to
the left side of the room and the
other closer to the right side.
Aim the tweeters away from
each other, toward the front
and rear of the room.

TOOLS NEEDED
The SoundPoint Series in-wall
speakers were designed to be
easily installed. However, if you
are unsure of your ability to
properly install these loud-
speakers, please contact your
dealer or a qualified installer.
INSTALLATION
The wires for both speakers
should be the same length. If
one speaker is placed closer to
the amplifier than the other,
hide the excess wire behind the
wall. Speakers and electronics
terminals have corresponding
(+) and (–) terminals. Most

manufacturers of speakers and
electronics, including JBL, use
red to denote the (+) terminal
and black for the (–) terminal. It
is important to connect both
speakers identically: (+) on the
speaker to (+) on the amplifier
and (–) on the speaker to (–) on
the amplifier. Wiring “out of
phase” results in thin sound,
weak bass and a poor stereo
image. With the advent of multi-
channel surround sound
systems, connecting all of the
speakers in your system with
the correct polarity remains
equally important in order to
preserve the proper ambience
and directionality of the
program material.
To use the push-type speaker
terminals, press the red (+) or
black (–) cap for the desired
terminal, insert the bare end of
the speaker wire into the hole
below the cap and release the
cap. Gently tug on the wire to
make sure that it is fully
inserted.
SPEAKER CONNECTIONS
For model SP6CS, the terminals for
both the left and right channels will
be on the same loudspeaker.

EXISTING CONSTRUCTION
Remove the grille from the
speaker frame by pulling on the
paper tab. If the tab is missing,
to avoid scratching the grille or
baffle you may unfold a paper
clip, insert the straight end
through one of the holes in the
grille, and gently pull up.
Determine the correct speaker
location. 
Note: Remove the inner tem-
plate, which is the paint shield,
at the perforation. Use the
outer template when cutting
the drywall.
Note: Always allow at least 
one-half inch between a wall
stud and the speaker cutout or
the locking tabs will not be able
to swivel into place.

Cut the drywall.
Connect the speaker wires to

Replace the metal grille.
Place the frame assembly in
the wall.
Screw down each of the four
Phillips head screws. The 
locking tabs will swivel into
place and secure the unit to the
rear surface of the drywall.
The SoundPoint speakers fea-
ture unique swivel mounts for
the tweeters that enable you to
aim the very directional high
frequencies toward the listen-
ing position, at ear-level height.
Before installing the speaker
grille, gently press on the outer
edge of the tweeter mount to
adjust the position of the
tweeter. The tweeter will not
swivel more than 15 degrees in
any direction; do not attempt to
force it to move further. You
may also rotate the tweeter to
orient the JBL logo as desired.
