I have a JVC microsystem (FS-S57) and want to mount the speakers on the wall. The speakers weigh 5lbs each. My mounts will support 30lbs (for use of better speakers down the road) and must be screwed to the speaker.
There are no pre-drilled mount points in the speaker. The back panel of the speaker looks to be 1/8" while the sides look to be 5/16" and the cabinet is likely MDF or similar.
Obviously there's not enough thickness at the rear to screw into. I'd rather not screw into the side of the cabinet but will do if there's no other option (it'll be hidden). I can take the drivers out (seeing as I broke 2 mounting tabs for the bezel) to put a backing in if required although the back of the cabinet has a triangular piece glued there but I could go above or below it.
The only other option I can think of is to glue a piece of wood to the back panel then screw into that... is this a viable option and if so, is there anything I need to take into account before doing this?
Which option is best?
Thanks in advance.
