How to hang a Heresy size speaker on a wall

Recommended Posts

Title says it all.  How to hang a Heresy size speaker on a wall??  I have a pair of JBls that are about the same size and want to hang high on a wall.  Hard to find a decent mount.

I used these from Parts Express.  The KP201s are now mounted to blue block between the aluminum frame and the acoustical panel.  The speaker in the bottom photo is upside down with respect to how it was ultimately mounted.  Looking through the grill you can see that the tweeter is at the bottom when mounted.

Did you have to drill a hole in the bottom of the speaker for the insert? 

 

Yes, but in this case it was the top for inverted installation.

I used those to attach small single drivers (the one below the TV).  The heavy duty brackets from PE allowed the the speakers to be angled left to right, rotated , or tilted to precisely aim them into the mniddle school band practice space below.

I use an old CRT TV mount.  But I couldn't even find a decent pic of one.

I've used French Cleats before for Heresy's, they hang just fine.  Can get them at Lowe's or Home Depot.

You cannot, should not, must not, try to use mounting hardware on the back of a Heresy to wall mount.

Yeah. I would advise against it, too....the rear panel of the Heresy is MDF, and  the box panels are also MDF....ever since the original Heresy II entered the picture, and the joinery of the rear panels to the rest of the box panels is basically a glued "capture" of the rear panel into the other panels, which is actually a weak point for hanging from the rear panel or the rear edges of the other box panels...using wood-type screws alone to attach some hanging device in that area may be asking for eventual trouble, IMHO....and for the new Heresy IV, it is now rear-ported, with a one-inch taller cabinet which adds some more weight to it....PLUS, it needs to be out from the wall the "ideal distance", which will vary with the room they will be in, in order to maximize its rear tractrix porting sound.....SOOOOOOOOO....

Seeing as the last 3 posts obviously didn't actually read your post i just wanted to chime in on the MDF comment, if it happens to be made from MDF and needs to be rear mounted just add a steel plate to both sides of the cabinet and bolt through that so nobody gets hurt underneath.

Why not just get a pair of the black pro Heresy looking speakers that have the slant backs and two drivers, they use in theaters ?

 

If you have to mount the Heresy, I would double the bottom with a piece of plywood and run nuts and bolts through the plate and the bottom of the heresy with some large washers on the inside.

Because I already own the JBLs and want to use the JBL speakers.
