after many years of listening to crap sound, just purchased a nice system, 4 Polk Rti38's, CSi40 and PSW505. Probably 70% music and 30% video use.
Looked at getting 'professional' assistance in installing -- a painful waste of time dealing with my local 'experts' in terms of no shows and non response.
I think I need to do wall mounts for the 38's and looking for suggestions. Wiring is going to go down, under and up (basement is accessible).
Room is 14x22 with full brick fireplace projecting 2 ft out in the center 8 ft of one 14ft wall.
Two will be mounted on the back corner / side walls 7-8ft up with probable 45? degree toe-in and 5-15? degree down angle. I think I can hit studs for these.
My prefered spot for the others is on the front corners of the fireplace about 6ft up, probable slight toe-in and down angle. Will have to drill into the brick?or mortar? to set the anchors. Other choice is on the walls.
Also with the mounting, I do not want to use the keyholes alone because of my belief of the need for angling. Comment?
Clamping brackets look to be a match, are there other choices that will hold the 19lbs and allow angling? Or are there other decent clamping brackets at less than $30 each (like the btech77)? Or is that the going rate?
Any comment / suggestion welcome (other than return it all and buy bose).
