    Does anyone have experience of wall bracketing Quad 11/12L's. I currently have 11's on Partington Super stands, but fret when the boy uses them as a traffic cone to cycle around, and would (much) prefer to keep them up and out of harm's way.
    Regards,
    HT

    Long shot but you could try phoning/emailing What HiFi as they had some 11L's on some beefy looking wall mounts at the What HiFi Show last November.

    I'd be interested in any possibilities, too. Having auditioned loads of sub/sat sets, I've come to the conclusion that they ain't got the presence of more substantial speakers like the Quads. Having a way to keep them off the floor would be the only way I could get them past you-know-who...

    Having them so close to a wall would impact on the sound quality so I would test them first if possible in their proposed location.

    Hi,

    To follow up on 2 earlier replies, I'll write direct to Quad and ask for their suggestions (in preference to the labyrinthine empire of What Hi-fi), and the listening test here [http://www.tnt-audio.com/casse/quad_11_12_e.html] suggests that the 11Ls prefer being close to a wall to make up for their apparent lack of bass??

    Regds,

    HT
