No requirement for an actual box. You can use a low voltage ring with a cover plate.

There's a few different kinds of drywall rings. Here's a demo you tube video on the most popular kinds and how they install into the drywall

My favorite low-volt trim ring is the Carlon SC100RR. It has little marking holes so you can get the cut-out just right and it sits fairly flush to the wall. I've used a wide variety of both metal and plastic trim rings and I keep coming back to these. Plus they're readily available at most major hardware stores. I know I sound like a Carlon commercial, but I use these every day in my profession.

My favorite "trim ring" is a blue electric box with the back cut off
About .22 cents vs the $1 for the orange trim rings
