Fire Hoods are a necessity if you are installing ceiling speakers below a habitable room, for example if you were putting them in your kitchen and your son or daughter’s room is above the kitchen. Building regulations require a certain ‘fire break’, meaning that it takes a fire a certain amount of time to burn through a ceiling, and as the cut-out holes affect this, fire hoods return the ceiling to its original ‘fire break’ integrity. Some fire hoods also stop sound transfer and can even improve audio quality.
