  • The new construction rings are completely flat, and feature holes for mounting to studs/joists in a wall or ceiling.

    The mud rings are only used for sheetrock and plaster situations. They feature a raised flange, which helps in the plastering process and also makes it impossible to accidentally install sheetrock over the ring without first cutting a hole to accommodate the speaker. This allows the builder to install the mudrings to the framing or a building, which specifies exactly where the speakers need to be mounted, and not having to worry that the sheetrock contractor plasters over the speaker openings.
