View Full Version : 35i's
05-17-2002, 12:06 AM
I just thought I'd let everyone know I picked up a pair of rt35i's today. Paired with my 600i's, 245i, dcm sub and onkyo 696 receiver, my system is complete....for now :0). I really wanted fx300s or 500s, but at 99 bucks a piece, I couldn't pass them up. They seem to do the job perfectly in my small (11x12) bedroom. One thing I was wondering though, is has anyone had any experience mounting these on a wall. They're pretty heavy, and i'm not going to be able to set a screw into a stud. I figured i'd just get a beefy drywall anchor, and I'd be set. I don't want to tear a hold in my wall though. Any other suggestions would be appreciated much.

I have 2,
first one would be built a speaker shelf,this is what I did.
second would to use a plastic drywall anchor that can support its weight,#10's work good.I have done this as well.
Just becarefull when hanging them you don't want them to faal down and hurt someone,and the speaker for that matter.

Thanks mantis. I'll prolly go with the anchor for cost and ease, but the shelf sounds tempting. How would you recommend going about this? Putting them in each corner? Buying those shelving kits?

No, building your own to custom fit the speaker.You can get tricky and stain them the same color as the speaker.If my scanner was working I would post some pics of job's I done with building speaker shelves.Much like a candle shelf but with a bigger base and 4 wall anchors to hold the shelf on the wall.

Oh alright. I think I see ya now. I'll see what I can do. Sorry about taking so long to catch on, but being only 18, I haven't been exposed much :0). If you ever get the scanner working, I'd still like to see your's. You can email them to me.

Does anyone know where to get good ceiling brackets for 12-15 lbs Polk speakers? I find the Omnimount brackets to be too expensive. My room is such that mounting my speakers on the ceiling and aiming them slightly downwards would be my best option.

I have FX 500i's and RT35i's mounted on the walls using the equiped mount. I used drywall anchors. I think they are #10. Had them up for over a year. I think I used a #8 screw in them . The anchors are the plastic type I drilled a 1/8" pilot hole made install easier, cleaner. I have one wall that has plaster with lathe on the wall all I did was screw in the screw into the wood lathe. still holding over a year later. If you screw the screw in to the proper depth the speaker will hold very tight to the wall. They fit very tight. Hope this helps!:)

In the booklet it comes with, it talks about wall mounting...i think it says something about 10" screws.
