You guys got any suggestions for wall mounts for Volt 8 surrounds? I'm not sure what they way, but it's certainly more than a Bose bookshelf I've been thinking it would be nice to be able to adjust the downward angle without worrying about the top-heavy slanted enclosure falling off a shelf. That and I'm kinda tired of sanding MDF

Dude, are you made of leprechauns? Cause that was awesome!

When I was originally thinking of going the DIY route with these speakers, I was thinking about the same thing. The best I could come up with was to use a piano hinge on the bottom, cut to the width of the speaker, to function as a hinged support bracket. Then attach some screw eyes to both the back (or side) of the speaker and the wall. Then you could use standard picture hanger wire through the screw eyes and wound back on itself to get the exact downward angle you need. Plus it is cheap and very easy to adjust.

I hope this description makes sense. I'd render it in TMcGoogle Sketchup for you, but I am not near anywhere I can do it.

This is one of the reasons I don't want flat packs. It's a bespoke theater - give it custom speakers.
