TOPIC: Mounting surround sound speakers - wall or under cabinet??

Mounting surround sound speakers - wall or under cabinet?? 3 weeks 4 days ago #1

I've started a new project adding wireless rear surround speakers. I'm planning on mounting them above my home theater recliners either on the wall or under cabinet (in the slide room). The speakers are Sony SA-Z9R and are fairly small measuring 4" x 6-1/8" x 4" and weighing about 2.25 lbs. each.

I've also purchased a swivel mount system that will allow me to point the speakers downward a bit.

My dilemma is whether I should mount to the wall or under cabinet. I'm nervous about mounting to the wall as I'm not sure the wall board is strong enough to support the mount screws/speakers. Regarding mounting to the underside of the upper cabinet I'm a bit nervous as there is wiring in the cabinet (for the LED lights) and I'm not sure how strong the cabinet fascia is as well.

Has anyone had any experience mounting small speakers in their coaches? If so I'd sure appreciate your thoughts and ideas. Thank you!

I guess no one has experience drilling into their exterior walls. :(

I know the older models had speakers mounted to th dinette walls
I would try a stud finder to locate something substantial to screw into

Thanks Shane. Since we have aluminum studs in the walls do you know if a typical household stud finder would work or do I need a special one?

They are cheap at home depot, lowes etc
They work on both as the laser measures density

I still have the option of hanging them from the bottom of the cabinet as well. Does anyone know where the wires for the lights below the cabinets are run?

Pull one of the lights down, there's probably only a couple wires about the size of a light gauge extension cord so shouldn't be in your way.

Thanks for the replies everyone. I decided to mount from the bottom of the cabinet and it worked great!
