    ok basically i wanna mount my speakers at the 4 corners of my walls, but i'll need something flat in order to do that

    i was thinking of attaching something flat from the ceiling and mounting my speakers onto that

    got any better ideas?

    Wall mounts? Are these for your PC? Speaker positioning is very important. Maybe this can help.

    they have normal walmount screw connectors right? most electronic shops have wallmounts. cambridge soundworks for one. the corner is probably way too far apart. should be maybe 5 feet apart making a triangle with seating position. you cant separate such small speakers that far or its going sonud funny. won't mesh

    No particular suggestion from me as I'd never do something like that, as you should know that won't sound very good. Terrible direct/indirect sound ratio having them so close to the wall.

    can anyone else back this up?

    checked it out, thanks

    i'll put them directly in front and behind me to the side a bit rather than all of them at the corners of my walls

    anyways, those wall mounts are expensive, for just 1 piece? (sheesh)

    I don't know the layout of your room, but, wall mounting may be too far from the front speakers, so ceiling mounts or free stands would work. I have the Klipsch Promedia 5.1 and just bought some OmniMount SAT 2 speaker stands from ebay. I just now saw them here for the same price. They may have something that would work for you.

    Aren't the Z-5300's base able to adjust so you can just screw it into the wall? See here.

    yes, but i want to mount them to the corners of my room but i'm thinking of just mounting them on my flat walls

    i only have 4 corners in my room, not that big but enough to fit a king size bed + computer desk + another big desk

    i'm thinking of making something like this so it'll be easier if i decide to change my room up
