    How do the BP2X mount on the wall? I'm getting these soon but havn't looked at them closely enought to see how they go up. Do they come with a mount? How easy is it to mount them? Thanks. Gary.

    You can hang them flat against the wall like a picture frame. We just put a screw into a stud leaving about 1/4" sticking out so you can hang the speaker.

    Since they're unreachable by me at this time I'll guess they weigh about 15 lbs.

    Yeah, there is a keyhole slot in the back. I just used a drywall anchor and left the screw out 1/4 inch...Just like everyone else says. This is what you get..

    Do you set the bp2x as big or small on your receiver?

    Back to hanging them. I'm sight impaired and not a real "handyman". What size screw would you use? I'm probably going to find a friend to help so I don't mess up the wall.

    I'm not sure about the screw size but I know I got pretty long screws - either 2" or 2.5" - to make sure the speaker was firmly bolted to the wall. I'm not sure about the weight, but I did exactly as others have done (screw into a stud, leave it hanging out a little bit) and it's very secure.
