    Could someone tell me what the options are for mounting the surround speakers to the wall?

    Do you have to drill holes in the back of the speaker?

    Also - I would like to get ones that swivel (if they make them) - where would I pick something like that up?

    Although your choices depend to some extent on the size of the speakers you have, it sounds like you want bt-77 or something like that. (See pinpoint-mktg dot com.)

    They don't require screwing into the speaker (in most cases) and they swivel.

    Hi Matt.
    You could also use the BT34's if your Surrounds have a keyhole mount on the back.

    Do a Google search for Omnimount, they make mutliple configurations of swivel-type mounts.

    To second Mitch's suggestion, I purchased the BT-77s a few years back. I would highly recommend them.

    BT-77 from Crutchfield.com

    I use them with Paradigm Mini-Monitors, which I would consider to be a rather large surround speaker and I haven't had any problems or concerns.

    A quick inexpensive solution would be to pick some up at your local Home Depot for $20
