So I took advantage of the clearout sale and got a pair of these for the kitchen. I thought I had a spot to put them but now my wife is disagreeing (enough about my personal problems).

Anybody have any advice about ways to put these on a wall-mounted shelf or a wall mount arrangement? Obviously they need some clearance from the wall for the ports and I don't want to drill holes in them or anything.


thanks

Didn't the outlaws have mounting brackets at one point?

I could not find anything that indicates that the bookshelf speakers had any kind of mounting hardware. I am assuming BFM is talking about speakers and not pots and pans since you really can't tell from his post other than it is in this forum. I saw a friend use of all things an bicycle basket the hold his speakers on the wall without hampering their output.

Yes, talking about the Outlaw bookshelf speakers. They don't have any mounting brackets and don't easily lend themselves to mounting because of the ports in the rear (I think 73Bruin is thinking of the LCR speaker which I think can be wall mounted fairly easily).

These http://www.crutchfield.com/S-L6P4seuys2b/p_121AM40B/Pinpoint-AM40.html#details-tab get pretty good reviews and I have been seriously considering but the speakers are still in the box right now.

The bicycle basket sure is creative. I'm going to give it some thought.

The bicycle basket is fugly and won't likely meet the WAF. My friend is single so he doesn't care. Without damaging the cabinets you have to rely on some sort of enclosure or a friction type device that can clamp the external box and then be mounted elsewhere. The wall mounts you looked at look like they would work but I would have a hard time putting expensive speakers on them. Have you the ability to place the speakers on top of you kitchen cabinets and the angle them using a wedge under the bottom?

I somewhat share your concerns about the wall mounts - that's one reason I don't already have them (the other is that I would like the speakers a little further from the wall if possible). 'Cause using those mounts, one trick to getting the speakers further from the wall would be to angle them down, which I think is probably a weak point of that mounting system. They look like they would be pretty sound if they are totally horizontal.

I was actually thinking of a variation on the bicycle basket idea - there probably is an alternative that could work and not be fugyl. But you are likely right about the WAF. I had considered the cabinets and then mostly eliminated that option because of the height and dust up there, but with a wedge, that may actually be a good solution for the height issue. And I could just get off my ass and dust up there every once in a while....

Thanks for your thoughtful advice.

I thought they had mounting brackets for both. Clearly I was wrong. I am sorry for the confusion.

Bob if you would like, I will stop by the Crutchfield store and look at the speaker mounts and check out their quality. I will be going by their retail store this weekend.

Thanks for the offer. Yeah, if you are going anyway and don't mind having a look, that would be great. The cupboard top solution isn't going to work. I have a (temporary???) solution right now but I wouldn't mind another opinion on these. Appreciate all the advice and assistance here.
