This is somewhat of a weird request but I'm looking for some sattelite mounts that will allow me to mount on the backside of my headboard on my bed. I'm renting a room from a friend and I don't want to be punching holes in his walls, and I don't have room for stands. I've seen plenty of wall and ceiling mounts, but I need something that can attach to the back and clear the top of the headboard.

All headboards do not look the same, it would probably be best to include a picture of this particular headboard.


And yes this does seem like to weird request to me.

Can't really get pics as the headboard is pressed against the wall with not too much wiggle room. But it's essentially flat and relatively thick. I guess the easiest way would be to have a bracket that extends over the top of the bed, and then mount one of the many speaker wall mounts to that, but I was hoping for something i could just buy outright as I have had terrible luck with diy fabrications



Now that I think about, a mount coming from the sides of the headboard would probably be better as it'd be ear level.


I've attached 2 files on what I'm looking to achieve. Green is the speaker, pink is the mount.

If I'm going to be purchasing some new speakers, I will probably be getting these: http://www.parts-express.com/pe/show...number=300-670 which look like they are keyholed.


I also have some speakers from an old sony HTIB that I may canabalize the proprietary ends so they are just bare speaker wires. Those have threaded screws on the back.


So I'm flexible for both options.

I'd just use a length of 1x2. Overlap the headboard about 6-8", attach with two screws, maybe #12 about 1 1/2" long, then attach speaker to the other end that is sticking up above the headboard.
