There's no reason you shouldn't enjoy music in your bathroom, whether you're listening to some soothing music while you're in the tub, or catching up on the news while shaving in the morning. In-wall bathroom speakers can add this dimension to your home's bathroom. Bathroom speakers installed in the walls won't take up any valuable space and they'll blend into the decor, too.

  1. 1

    Mark the locations where you want your speakers on the wall with a tape measure and pencil.

  2. 2

    Locate the wall studs nearest those locations with a stud finder. In-wall bathroom speakers must be placed between the studs of the wall. If a speaker location conflicts with a stud, shift the planned speaker location to either side.

  3. 3

    Place the template for the speaker opening that came with the speakers on the wall. Trace the opening with a pencil. Cut out the opening with a drywall saw.

  4. 4

    Feed your speaker wires to the openings in the wall and pull about 1 to 2 feet of wire out of the opening. Remove 1/2 inch of insulation from the end of each wire with a set of wire strippers.

  5. 5

    Place the housings for the inwall bathroom speakers into the openings and mount them according to the manufacturer's instructions. Different manufacturers use different mounting methods, so closely follow the supplied instructions for a strong stable mount.

  6. 6

    Connect the bare ends of the speaker wires to the input terminals of the speakers. Place the speakers into the housings and secure them according to the manufacturer's instructions.

Tips and warnings

  • Be sure to chose speakers rated for use in damp and humid environments.
