Alright i have some Paradigm Surround 1s which I would like to mount on the wall. Unfortunately where I want to mount them is in between two studs. I don't really trust the weight of the speaker on to the drywall itself. So what I was thinkig, is a nicely deocrative board which goes along the exterior of the well and is either attached to the studs, or glued to the drywall. The the speaker mount is drilled through both the board and drywall. Any thoughts?

That's an eight pound speaker. You'll have no trouble with those if you find the right drywall anchors. HD or your local hardware store should have a good selection.

I really like these drywall anchors. It helps to know the thickness of the drywall, when selecting the size.

I agree, you'll have no trouble using drywall anchors to hang those speakers.

I have used these before and like them a lot since they don't require any pre-drilling

The one I linked above also does not require drilling, AFAIK. I hammer it in, insert the screw, and it holds very well. Whatever you use, look at the weight rating on the package.
