The Intrasonic Technology Retrofit system is designed to work with most existing housings. To determine if you can use the existing wall housing measure the inside height and width of the existing housing. If it measures between 14-1/8 inches to 14-3/8 inches in width and at least 5-3/4 inches high, you should be able to use the existing housing. If you find that you can not use the existing housing, you will need to remove the old housing and install an Intrasonic Technology I2000H Rough-In Kit.
Some old systems have the power coming in to a box that hangs from the bottom of the wall housing that contains one or two transformers. The Intrasonic Technology Retrofit system does not use transformers. You will need to carefully remove these transformers, bring the Romex up into the housing for connection to the Intrasonic Technology master.
NOTE: Do not remove the old transformer housing and if there was a cover you will need to save it. The cover should be replaced once the Romex is wired to the Intrasonic Technology wires. If you are using the original housing, you will need to install the Intrasonic Technology mounting straps. These come with Retrofit RETRO-M master. Be sure to install them with the flat side facing the chassis. As closely as possible mount them with the mounting screw hole centered between the top and bottom. If there are holes available you can use them to screw the mounting straps to the chassis. But be careful not to mount them too far towards the back. The mounting strap needs to be no more than 1/2" from the front end of the chassis. If there are no holes, drill holes to mount the mounting strap.
