    I purchased the Onkyo S5500 based off the recommendations from these forums and the system looks impressive.

    What type of wall brackets should I use for the 4 satellite speakers? I've never mounted speakers before, so I want to make sure that I purchase the correct type.

    -Thanks

    It would help us, help you. If you posted a picture of the backside of the speakers. I've never seen them to even know if they have any form of provision for a mount.

    You just need a pan-head screw. That's the kind with a larger head than normal. Just make sure it fits through the whole in the little bracket. If there isn't a stud where you want to mount them then also get a drywall anchor like one of these.

    I would also put a couple of rubber bumper things near the bottom to keep the wood from scraping the wall.

    Both are available at any hardware store.
