Can you wall mount Atc 5.1 package speakers?

Postby sasman1964 » Fri Apr 14, 2017 5:14 pm

Hi
I am thinking about purchasing The ATC 5.1 package.. I need to mount the front speakers on the wall + center speaker ..Is this possible? i can at a push have them mounted on a Shelf or bracket? may be 6" orso away from the walls Max..
My room is approx 13 X 13 feet,with the sofa on the back wall opposite the front wall with a 110" projection screen...Any advice please

Thanks
Rob

They will be fine close to wall as they are sealed designs. Bass will get reinforced slightly as a result.
However, they have no provisions for mounting and as they are very heavy wall mounting is not easy to do. If you plan to tilt them down and pan sideways it is even more difficult to achieve a safe mount. Best option would be a set of specially designed brackets. Give a call to ACT and ask if they know of anyone who can supply suitable hardware. Also, call a large shop who supply studio/pro audio gear, give them details of the speakers (dims and weight, positioning) and ask what mounts they have.
I would not mount them on anything anything rather than solid and competently designed mounts.
