    Hi everyone, can anyone recommend wall brackets for dali zensor 1, They are for my rears! (Not to expensive)
    Also where would be the best place to mount them on the walls? I have a small lounge and my sofa is right back against the wall! I was thinking as far back as possible but on the side walls about 6 foot high pointing down at the listening area! Any advice would be much appreciated!
    Any
    (Title speaker not soeaker) lol

    If your sofa is against the wall then putting them on the walls besides you, slightly behind if possible, about 1m above seated head height is a typical position (more info on Dolby and THX websites for speaker positions).

    I can't help with brackets as I don't know your speakers, but there are loads of speaker brackets on ebay, pick some that you like the look of and fit your speakers?

    If you get brackets that allow you to move the speakers left/right up/ down you can try straight out or angled down - you can see a good range here: Speaker Brackets - Audiovisual Online - Home Cinema and Hifi Specialists - I prefer the ones that have a swivel/ ball joint but access to the back can be a bit more fiddly.

    Speaker placement:

    Dolby Home Theater Speaker Placement and Setup Guide

    I had a quick google of your speakers - they get good reviews :) I found monopole speakers too directional for side surrounds so I switched to bipole speakers but give it a try and see what you think.

    Thread title corrected... BTW if you edit your post and go advanced you can edit your own thread title.
