Identifying speakers

I just bought a house that has speakers installed in the ceiling in the living room and master bedroom. None of the control equipment was left behind. I'm trying to identify the maker and model of the speakers but I don't see any markings or labels on them... am I missing something or is there another way to identify these?

Identifying speakers

Post pictures of the front and backs of the speakers assemblies.


Ren: Now listen, Cadet. I've got a job for you. See this button? Ren: Don't touch it! It's the History Eraser button, you fool! Stimpy: So what'll happen? Ren: That's just it. We don't know. Maybe something bad, maybe something good. I guess we'll never know, 'cause you're going to guard it. You won't touch it, will you?

Identifying speakers

You will likely need to take them out of the ceiling to identify them. There should be a label on the back. If there is no label then they are the cheapo variety.

When you remove them, don't unscrew the mounts all the way or you risk losing parts. There are dogs that swing out to lock the speaker to the drywall. Loosening those screws should swing the dogs back in and release it so you can lower it out.

What do you want the brand and model for? Do you need to match them?
