Whats the best way to stand off an electrical outlet on teh screen wall so that its flush with the insulation?

WIthout ripping out a bunch of sheet rock, I cant pull the junction box out, so I need another method. I dont think I will ever use the outlets, but I dont like the idea of leaving them behind the Linacoustic.

DONE! Thanks for the help guys...

Turns out that was the ticket. I bought 4 of the standoffs. The first one flushes the box with the wall properly, then the second one can screw to the first with 2" sheet rock screws, and Viola! its very solid, and should stick out just enough...

I used 2x2 to stand off the Speaker jacks, and the one cat6 jack on the screen wall. (No thats not where I wanted it, but the builder blew it.) I had already ran my own Cat6 to the rack anyway, so thats where I will get my hard Internet feed for BDLive, downloading movies, and firmware updates. Still not sure why every electronic piece of equipment you buy does not have wifi built in.

Anyway... THANKS Guys!
