First post here...

I have just purchased a set of Energy Take Classic 5.1 speakers for my living room. The room is approx 14' x 14'. I made a promise to my wife that these would be mounted on the wall rather than on stands. I understand that this isn't ideal but it's what I have to work with.

My question is, should I (a) hang them directly on screws, (b) purchase speaker mounts to move them away from the wall (about 5 inches) and allow me to angle them, or (c) build small shelves for each speaker? They will also likely be at a height of 7-8' so I would think having the ability to angle them down on the speaker mounts would be best.

Your thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks.

First, welcome to the shack. My first piece of advice would be to mount them any way your wife want's you too.:paddle: Seriously all the options you mention are fine. I put mine on wall mounts so I could have more control over them, I can face them straight ahead or angled down at a 45 degree angle. And also mounting them on the wall is perfectly fine so I don't know who told you it was a bad thing but I have alway's done so with good results. So again welcome and let us know how it came out.:wave:

Those speakes need to be mounted away from the walls. So you will need to use some kind of wall mount bracket that holds them out a foot or so. If they have rear ports, two feet.

Thanks for your reply. The speakers are rear vented so I would assume they should not be directly against the wall.

Not according to Energy's web site. Those speakers are considered bookshelf, not on-wall speakers. They need to be mounted away from the wall, as I mentioned in my other post.

welcome. My svsound sb-1's are on mounts that keep them away from the wall. I think yours will sound better away from the wall a little. Have fun. Dennis

Well I assumed, which we all know how that goes, that if they were at least a few inches away they would be fine. Sorry about that.:duh:
