So I'm building a theater in my new house, about to hang drywall. Have clips + channel + 2 layers 5/8" drywall with green glue spec'd for all walls and ceiling.
I bought the Klipsch THX Ultra2 system (via a great deal from Will at HiFi Heaven) and have the fronts planned behind the screen, sides/rears mounted up high per advice from Erskine group.
But how do I actually hang the speakers?
They're heavy (15-20 lbs each) and have omnimount holes. But if I drill the mounts into the studs, doesn't this compromise a large part of the soundproofing? Sound would vibrate right thru the mount to the framing. Or, are there rubber mounts, grommets, or something else that maintains the decoupling?
They're too heavy to just hang on the drywall, even if drilled into the channel. Seems like this would be a common issue but all my searches are coming up empty.
