Mounting Location

Select Mounting Location

The Topcat is shipped ready to mount in a standard suspended ceiling grid.

All hardware needed to secure the Topcat into the ceiling grid is provided. Additional hardware may be required if building structure tie-points are metal or contrete. A licensed electrician will need to provide necessary materials if Topcat is permanently connected to the building AC mains. Topcat will distribute sound throughout a classroom of up to 1200 square feet (112 sq. meters) with ceiling heights of 9 to 12 feet. The location of the Topcat Access is critical to ensure even sound distribution.


  1. Identify the center of the listening area of the classroom for optimum location. See Figure 1.
  2. Select a ceiling tile that is free of fixtures (lighting, HVAC, etc.) nearest to the center point.
  3. Remove the selected ceiling tile for Topcat installation.
