Essential Info

If are planning to install the Leviton AEC65 Architectural Edition JBL 6.5-Inch 2-Way In-Ceiling Speakers as a part of your surround sound audio or home theater system, this back box will help improve the sound and diminish the sound the typically escapes to other areas of your home through the ceiling or walls when a back box is not used. By using the ideal air volume for the speaker, the Back Box acts as a sound chamber, directing the critical sound to the sweet spot. This action also dramatically reduces the amount of sound that makes its way through the ceiling and walls of your home. This back box also meets several fire ratings requirements that will provide one hour fire break protection.

    These made installation in my drop ceiling extremely easy, and should be featured for anyone who buys similar speakers. Would definitely recommend to a friend.
