Quick and Simple Klipsch Promedia Ceiling Speaker
16+ inches of 1&1/2 x 1/2" wood (This
can vary, I used this because I had it laying around)
Two large hooks
One long screw and anchor
Black or white paint
Something to paint on
Pen or pencil
Step 1 - Measure the span
of the legs. These Klipsches span about 4&1/2". You
will use this number along with the size of the hooks you will
be using to determine the length of wood you will need.
Step 2 - Mark
the wood to be cut. I cut it about 1/2" shorter then the
span of the legs because the hooks will be jutting slightly out
and I'm not expecting to hang the speaker so far forward on the
Step 3 - A miter box is not nessecary but does
make a lazy man's job a bit easier.
Step 5 - Double check your measurements
Step 6 - Paint it. I used a can of vinyl
spray paint I had in the garage. Almost anything will do.
Step 7 -
According to the span of the legs and the range of the hooks
you are using go ahead and select the best location to screw
the hooks into the wood. For the size I have chosen 1/2" in
will easily hold the speaker at the outermost part of the legs.
You may want to drill pilot holes if you are using fat hooks
like this as they can easily split the wood.
Step 8 - Place
and secure the second hook and line them up.
Step 9 -
Put the completed mount up to the speaker to ensure that the
hook positions do indeed match, and get a screw ready to mount
this puppy to the ceiling. Again a pilot hole will keep the
wood you are using from splitting.
Step 10 -
Using an anchor, secure the mount to the ceiling. Orient it
in the direction you wish the speaker to face and hold it straight
while you screw it in tight.
Step 11 -
Hang your speaker, you can orient it vertically by placing
it further forward or backwards on the hooks. Works pretty
well for crap just sitting around the house, huh?
That's it, you're done. This was so easy
I almost didn't make a site for it but what the hell, maybe you
have found some value here.
For the center speaker I actually bought a small wooden
shelf and painted it black with the same can of spray paint. See below.
If you make or have made your own set of speaker mounts and would like
to snap some pics and send them off to me along with a few lines about
them I will happily add them to the site for others to use and provide
you with credit. There are lots of different kinds of speakers out there,
it would be neat to get some good DIY mounting articles collected here.
