Bose cube speakers are used with surround sound systems and can be secured on a stand, set on a shelf or mounted to the ceiling. When mounting Bose cube speakers to the ceiling, you will need a UB-20 ceiling or wall bracket made specifically for these speakers. They come in white, silver and black and include an extension arm if you want the speakers to protrude from the ceiling further. Installation of this bracket is simple and should take less than half an hour.

  1. 1

    Remove the UB-20 bracket from the package and unscrew the top part of the bracket that will sit flush with the ceiling and remove it from the larger half of the bracket. Hold the top part of the bracket up to the ceiling, with the wires for the speakers directly in the centre of the bracket, and put pencil marks in all the screw holes.

  2. 2

    Drill the holes for the bracket using an electric drill with a 7/32-inch bit.

  3. 3

    Place the bracket over the drill holes, insert the bolts that hold it to the ceiling, and tighten it down.

  4. 4

    Attach the other half of the bracket to the speaker by inserting the single bolt through the bracket and into the back of the speaker. Hold up the speaker to the ceiling, and connect the speaker to the wires that are coming out of the top part of the bracket.

  5. 5

    If desired, insert the extension arm between the part of the bracket that's secured to the ceiling and the part of the bracket that's connected to the back of the speaker. The extension arm is secured with a bolt on each end connecting it between the two halves of the bracket.

  6. 6

    Insert the single bolt you removed earlier that attaches the halves of the bracket together. Tighten the bolt down until the speaker is secure.

Tips and warnings

  • Have a licensed electrician run the wires through the ceiling before mounting the brackets to completely hide the wires.
