    Prophet, did you get any response to this? Or what did you end up doing?

    Cheers,

    P.

    I think the Quads deserve better (nicer) brackets than the ones posted so far (sorry guys).

    I will be picking up my Quad L-ite package next weekend, then I'll post my suggestion (must check the screw fixture properly)

    MaiaMan,

    I noticed on another post that you are testing this package at home for 15 days. Could I ask which dealer you got this test-drive through? Did they offer any special deals on the speakers?

    Cheers, P.

    Well guys, I live in Portugal. Over here you can hand back some types of goods (hifi for example) within 15 days of the purchase, if you're not satisfied. No questions asked (supposedly, I've never done it). So I'm trying out the Quads risk free.

    Now about the mounting... the speakers have a single screw at the back. I think they're too delicate to mount on stands, especially with kids at home. I had the idea of getting a rectangular piece of perspex, drill a hole in the center to mount the speaker and four holes in the corners to mount the perspex on the wall.

    I'm open to opinions and sugestions.

    Can anyone tell me how to attach a pic? I've gone to Manage Attachments, uploaded the pic, then what?

    The fact there is a threaded tap in the speaker suggests Quad have something in mind. Has anybody tried E-mailing Quad to see what?

    Quad wouldn't put a threaded hole in the back of the speaker unless it had a use. E-mail them to see what fits in it. It might be a wall mount. Their website is crap, so it may not be well known.

    Just a suggestion

    It doesn't look like they go up or down, just side to side. :(

    How about Vogels VLB50?

    You can move them in all directions but since the L-ite is so big, and the screw is so high up the movement will be pretty limited, unless perhaps you put something behind the mount to distance it a bit more from the wall.

    They are pretty cheap, seen them for €17 a pair here in Stockholm.

    Now do you goys know of a nice stand for the L-ites, I don't want my front speakers to be wall mounted since I have the room for a pair of nice stands, and it looks good. But I just can't find stands where the plate to place the speaker on is small enough... (135x180 mm)

    Give Apollo a call. They do some stands at a reasonable price with a top-plate ideal for the L-ites. And there's a lacquer option too, to match the finish on the Quads.

    I went for the B-Tech BT77 speaker mounts instead of the BT33's. I think they look far nicer (maybe I'm just into that look).

    Anyway - I got them for £20 a pair of ebay. Been emailing the seller for a few days, and he's very good to answer questions.

    I'll put up photos when they arrive.

    With direct sunlight this photo would come out better, but still here is what the Quads look like on a stand.

    That is a nice stand but I want someting "lighter" to make the speaker stand out, really. I have found a stand at IKEA that seems reasonably stable and very cheap, like £19, which I will try to modify a bit later today, will get back with pics :)
