Flush mount kit for 8351

Hi !

Concerning the flush mount kit 8050-450B in the Accessories July 2016 catalogue:

- does the enclosure allow for speaker toe-in within the box ? Or should the box itself be mounted in the desired toe-in angle ?

- does the coverplate have any functional meaning or is it merely a cosmetic element ? In case so I wonder if the unit can be purchased without the coverplate. My installation is three 8351's behind an acoustically transparent woven screen where obviously the looks don't count ;)

- why does the unit for 8260 mention "complete" vs. the unit for 8351 ? What is the difference here ?

Advices on the benefits and further details on the flush mount kit would be highly appreciated.

Best wishes,

Hi Jake,

Thanks for your questions. :)

1. Flush mount kit does NOT allow toe-in within the box.

2. Coverplate has an important functional meaning when it comes to the acoustical performance and it must NOT be left out.

3. There is no difference, both kits are complete.
