wookie groomer Posted May 14, 2019 Share Posted May 14, 2019 I will install 4 of these in a new construction ceiling in my basement theater room as well as two more in an adjacent Atmos gaming room. The ceiling will be 2 layers of 5/8" Type X drywall for a total thickness of 1 1/4" plus a backer box that I am building out of 1/2" plywood. The total overall thickness will then be 1 3/4". Will the mounting clips in the CDT-5800-C be large enough to accommodate that depth and still provide a nice tight connection? I considered building the box without the bottom since it will be snug between two studs but I wanted the bottom plate with the cutout in it so I can rotozip through the drywall and trace the inside cutout already perfectly made in the plywood.
