Wall mount your speakers for cheap with this easy DIY project and spend your cash on something your ears can appreciate.A cursory internet search shows that basic speaker mounts can start at $20 a piece for little more than a plastic bracket. Chris Job, a user at the DIY website Curbly, found it much more economical to create his own mounts.
Whether for your new 5.1 surround sound system, your cramped media room, or when just wiring your home to fill it with music, it's best to get speakers off the ground, furniture, and other resonant surfaces, and up to ear level. And since non-powered speakers are actually not heavy at all, with less than $2.00 in materials and an hour of work, it's surprisingly simple to create custom brackets for mounting them on walls and ceilings.
As long as you have some basic hand tools available like a drill and saw you too can whip up enough sturdy mounts for less than you'd spend on a single store-bought plastic mount. If you don't want wires dangling down your walls and you're not about to punch holes in the walls and fish speaker wires into the crawlspace, don't despair.
