    Default LSIM702F/X mounting options

    Just acquired a pair of LSIM 702f/x's to complete my LSIM 5.1 set up. The problem is that I'm going to use them in an apartment where wall-mounting options are non-existent, and I am at a loss figuring out the best way to mount them, besides placing them on some shelves or some makeshift and inelegant substitutes. The fact is I can't seem to find speaker stands that are tailored to fit these, given their shapes. On the other hand, their construction screams "style" to the point where any badly considered solutions might make them stick out like a couple of ugly sore thumbs instead of the real beauties they are. I'm looking for ideas/suggestions/options of mounting or placement, and any helpful input would be welcome.


    PS. I have a matching pair of 703s that I am going to use for fronts. Finding stands for those would not be as problematic, but I am still looking for options, so if anyone knows of any brand of stands that are particularly suited to them (703s), I'd appreciate their input as well.

    By the way, budget is an important consideration, so please keep that in mind. Thanks.

    Wow! No takers? Okay, let me modify this: I'll consider all kinds of shelf/stand placement options for the 702s and the 703s. I just wish I could see examples of what other owners have done, so that I can educate myself better about what options I have. These speakers are both beautiful, and rather expensive. I want their placement to be both elegant and safe. I hope you guys understand.

    Thanks in advance for your input. I am keeping an open mind about this.

    Hanging the 702 on the wall would be the easiest.. I'd look again for wall placement.

    For the 703s these look great for them.. http://www.crutchfield.com/p_051UF26...er-Stands.html

    I've read others state that 26" high would be ideal for the 703s at placing the tweeter at ear level.

    I'd fill them with sand to make them real heavy and sturdy.

    I just mounted my 702's they look great up on the wall but are they heavy. One screw we hit a stud. The other one we cutba hole in the wall, stuck a piece of 2'x4 in behind the drywall and screwed into it to make the ultimate anchor. Wanted to make sure 30 pounds did not drop on anyone's head.
