    Hi all

    I was thinking about placing my surround speakers on the wall and it was my intention to use a loudspeaker wall support.
    But I have a doubt: do I have to drill :eek: the speaker in order to fix them to the support?

    thanks and regards.

    Speakers that are intended to be wall mounted will normally have a suitable fixing hole already in the speaker. If not I wouldn't advise drilling one.

    You can buy speaker wall mounts that fix to the wall and grip the speaker and I would try one of those instead.

    Hi all

    I own a couple of Focal JMlabs Chorus 705 S (http://www.focal.tm.fr/gb/home/chorusS/c705s.htm) and of course I am not planning to drill them :) .
    Ian, you are right, those speaker have a fixing hole, but I thought that a wall mount could improve the sound... I like some models from Vogel's (http://www.vogels.com/) because they allow to turn and tilt the speakers but it seems that required to drill them to be fixed.

    Tujax, thanks for the links. Some of those models looks really nice.

    Thanks all for your advices.

    Regards.

    Pepe
