    Does anyone know if there are any internet based companies that specialise in speaker shelves or media shelving in general, I need some shelves (2) for my Mordaunt Short 902 rears, thing is finding some that are deep enough (front to back) to put them on....

    any ideas? no one like argos or homebase have anything deep enough.. :confused:

    yeah was considering it, but couldnt find something sturdy enough and held the speaker from the bottom, mine are rear ported so I dont wanna be screwing things into the back of them.

    I use similar rears and brackets have been fine.

    not the best of photos but you get the idea. I do have mine laying sideways due to space, but the normal way would have been fine too.

    If your worried about the rear ports you can always block them with foam. Plus depending on what amp you have you could be able to calm them down a bit

    I've got B&W 601 (rear ported) on cheapo Argos brackets. Probably heavier than a 902. It's more to do with how you fix them to the wall than it is the bracket itself. I think even the cheapo Argos brackets are rated to 15kg, which should be enough.

    Actually, having just looked at Argos, they don't sell them anymore. I'm sure I've seen similar in B&Q though.

    Hmm - found them - Richer Sounds here.

    I didn't. It just runs up the wall. It's in a dedicated TV/cinema room so aesthetics aren't particularly important, TBH :). However, if I was going to, just above would make sense, as then it would be behind the speakers once they were on there. The wall part of the bracket is much shorter than the speakers themselves.

    How much room do you have behind your seating position? My old Mordaut Short bookcase rear speakers stand on a range of Ikea Billy Bookcases that occupy the rear wall of my living room. the bookcases are easily deep enough evan with the speakers toed in a bit. See Here ...

    You want to attach a single shelf to the wall and set your speaker on that; is that correct? You're not looking for bookshelves or standard speaker brackets?

    I've seen several shelves of this type in the building supply store, though I'm not sure how deep they are. You could also consider a wall mounted shelf meant for a TV set. Those shelf-type TV mounts are fading away though with the phasing out of CRT-TV's. They would certainly be deep enough though.
