So today i finally completed my 5.2 speaker setup. now I have to mount them.
Here's the surrounds I'm using.
They are a little over 2 feet tall, then 13" deep and 12" wide. They weigh 50lbs each.
Here is where they are going to go, to the side of the speaker plates.
There is a stud in the wall about 6-8 inches to the side of each speaker plate.
What I was THINKING about doing was putting some kind of shelf on the wall that sticks out like 15 or 16 inches and then setting the speaker on top of it. That way I can change the angle of it easily if I want to and won't be stuck to 1 position if it is mounted to the wall.
I was thinking possibly getting something like this...
and then mounting some type of wooden board or shelf to the center of that, then setting the speaker on top of it.
I've just never done something like this before, and I am not 100% sure if that would work or if the wood would teeter/topple when the speaker is placed on it, even if the shelf is bolted to the L bracket thing.
So does anyone think this would work? Or is there any other ideas that someone would recommend over this? I was thinking possibly 2 L brackets but if I had to put them in 2 studs 16" apart, the speaker wouldn't be placed where I would like it to be.
I also wasn't sure if it would be safe if I used 2 L brackets per shelf, and screwed them to the drywall with a drywall anchor.
I've just never done something like this and looking for some advice.
