    Hey

    I have moved into a flat and its all plasterboard and studs.

    The owner said she doesnt mint me putting up shelves, but I dont trust plasterboard screws to hold the weight of the GXFX.

    Has anyone got these on some stands that may compliment my speakers.

    I would need to put one behind a sofa so they would need to be fairly skinny on the poles.

    Thanks so much

    Could you not find the studs and then attach the speakers to these?
    There are also options for fixing to plasterboard with metal fittings that spread the load.

    How much do they weigh? I have my RX FX in a plasterboard stud wall without putting them into the studs and they seem perfectly safe.

    I had RXFX on a plasterboard wall using the weight spreading bolts that have been mentioned and they were fine. The specs of the bolds I had could hold an awefull lot!

    Tipping the scale at almost 12kg the GXFX are almost three times the weight of the RXFX.
