Mounting Your Speaker Mount

Posted by Olivia on 4/15/2014
Chances are, if you are mounting speakers or a television in a conventional home, you will be installing the mounts using screws, which is fine, provided that your walls and ceilings are made of wood and are at least one inch thick. Otherwise, you are going to need some additional support.  With the typical walls being made of sheetrock (AKA drywall,) this material is just not strong enough to securely hold a weight bearing screw on its own without taking some extra measures for security.

Home Recording Studio – Mounting and Placement of Speakers

Posted by Timothy on 4/2/2014
The digital revolution brought us all the software to become home recording engineers, while musicians were enthralled to take the old reel-to-reels, 4-track cassette recorders, and other anachronisms up to the attic or down to basement for storage – much like the old film projectors. Musicians would take up various computer software and hardware, such as Cakewalk, Garage-band, and other devices to plug-in and play. They also needed to be able to listen to the live performance, as well as the mixdown after and during editing.

Exploring Speaker Mount Options

Posted by Eric on 3/26/2014
Speaker mounts are hardware that allow for precision positioning of speakers connected to a home theater or stereo system. By elevating speakers closer to the level of listeners’ ears, the audio experience is significantly enhanced. The full range of sound generated by finely engineered speakers becomes much more apparent when they are correctly mounted. Even modest quality speakers can be made to sound better simply by connecting them to an appropriate mount.

Reasons to Choose Wall Mounted Speakers

Posted by Nick on 3/21/2014
The list of advantages to wall mounted speakers over other speaker placement options is extensive. To begin with, many wall mounts for speakers have built-in wire clasps that help keep the speaker wires secure so that they stay put. Wall mounted speakers are often multi-directional, meaning that they can be adjusted to specific angles to create the optimum listening experience. This is the most important element of your home theater system listening experience. Sometimes speakers will bounce or vibrate when they’re on speaker stands or sitting on a floor or table. Mounting them with wall mounts insures that they will remain connected to their mounts and not produce such unwanted motion while playing, as the wall will absorb most of that vibration which causes unwanted noise, such as speaker buzz.

Some Speaker Wire Guidance

Posted by Eric on 3/20/2014
With so much attention on the television and mounting it in the right place, along with the other components, not to mention the speakers and getting them mounted appropriately, it’s not surprising that you might altogether forget about the very element that joins it all together: the speaker wire. You may be among the surprisingly large number of people who believe that any ol’ type of speaker wire will do. The flip side of that is falling too easily for the over exaggerated boasts from salespeople on the floor in the retail stores. Listening to the information-laden testimonials of the trained salespeople, they wind up forking out something like $600 for speaker wire, swearing that the quality of the sound proves how much better the wire they purchased is.
