So I got back from my NYC trip and I now have Triple 8's! I immediately hooked them up with the "channel test" on my left channel to make sure they worked. One thing I did notice is that the 2 speakers definitely sound different when hooked to the same input during the channel level setting. Now keep in mind, this is simply white noise. But 1 speaker sounded a bit "muffled" compared to the other one. But I then listened to some music with just each speaker hooked up separately, and I could not tell a difference. I kept switching between the two and I couldn't tell any difference. So I hope they are okay.
Now I had a question too. I want to mount these on the wall. I was thinking about a shelf to build and put them on top of that so that I could angle them and what not. I do have 1 stud that is in the middle of the area that I want to mount these.
And here is my question...
I was thinking something like this - http://www.homedepot.com/p/Everbilt-18-in-x-16-in-White-Heavy-Duty-Shelf-Bracket-14835/202824731?N=bcdr#.UU4vW1eHuSo
I am wondering if I can get 2 of those for each shelf, and use drywall anchors, and put a shelf on top of that. I'm wondering if 50lbs would hold up in drywall with drywall anchors, or if it too much weight. Anyone know?
Also, anyone have any clue if I were to say buy 1 of those and mount it directly to the stud, then get a shelf to mount DIRECTLY to that - would something like that work even though it really only has 1 support on it? I'd be concerned about it topping over possibly, or just something going wrong.
