Wall Stud - Trimming for In-Wall Speaker


I have a situation in an home built in the 20's with lath & plaster where in order to properly align in-wall speakers the stud will need to be trimmed out about 2-3"...

Is this a CA code violation??

Ayuh,... That's the whole stud.... I suggest you find some place else for the speaker...
