MXA710 Flush Mount Kit

The A710-FM Flush Mount Kit allows the MXA710 Linear Array to be mounted flush within a table, wall, or hard ceiling surface for an improved appearance while maintaining acoustic performance. The mount securely houses the microphone and provides knockouts for convenient cable routing as well as a cutting template to simplify installation. The flush mount kit frame is paintable to match the table surface if desired. The frame can also be covered with acoustically transparent cloth available from approved third-party suppliers.

Installing the MXA710 Flush Mount

You can install the flush mount on tables and in drywall (wall or ceiling). The installation process is the same.

Before installation, confirm that the mounting surface meets the following requirements:

  • 0.375 to 2 in. (9.5 to 50.8 mm) thickness
  • Minimum of 3.62 in. (92 mm) of open space behind the mounting surface and any other structure
  • No wall studs behind drywall mounting location

Flush mount dimensions:

  • A710-FM-2FT: 3.67 x 4.53 x 27.21 in. (93.25 x 115 x 691.03 mm) H x W x L
  • A710-FM-4FT: 3.67 x 4.53 x 51.29 in. (93.25 x 115 x 1302.76 mm) H x W x L

To get started, you will need:

  • Jigsaw or other cutting tool
  • Flush mount
  • Flush mount frame
  • Mounting template
  • Screwdriver
  • Cat5e (or better) Ethernet cable
  1. Attach the mounting template to the surface. Use the template as a guide to cut an opening in the surface:
    • A710-FM-2FT: 26.25 x 3.5 in. (666.75 x 88.90 mm)
    • A710-FM-4FT: 50.25 x 3.5 in. (1276.35 x 88.90 mm)

  2. Place the flush mount in the opening. The clamping brackets should be parallel to the flush mount.

    Ceiling installations: Attach the safety tether between the building structure and one of the 4 tie-off points using braided metal cable or other high-strength wire (not included). Follow any local regulations.

  3. Tighten the 2 screws until the flush mount is securely attached. As you tighten the screws, the clamping brackets rotate to hold the flush mount in place.

  4. Thread the Ethernet cable through the opening on the bottom of the flush mount and attach it to the microphone. Leave enough slack in the cable so that you can lift the microphone out of the flush mount in the future.

  5. Align the holes on the bottom of the microphone with the raised posts on the flush mount. The metal tab on the flush mount also aligns with a square cutout on the bottom of the microphone. Place the microphone in the flush mount and slide it into place.

  6. The flush mount frame has 4 clips that fit into slots at the corners of the flush mount. Squeeze each clip to fit it into the slot. It's easiest to hook one side of the clip into the slot at a time.

Removing the Microphone from the Flush Mount

  1. Remove the flush mount frame by squeezing each clip together. Pull frame away so the tape releases and lift it out of the slot.
  2. Using a screwdriver or other tool, press the metal tab under the microphone.
  3. Slide the microphone toward the tab, and then lift it out of the flush mount.
