    When hanging bookshelf speakers(6.5" woofer) without spacers on back, what is the best thing to add to back of speaker, to leave a little space for wiring to sneak out?
    I have 1 speaker that the wiring has to come out from behind and up thru my ceiling tile. I was thinking of some sort of rubber spacer. Also, is it best to use a rubber spacer, etc. even when speaker rests flat against drywall for vibration reasons? Thanks.

    Oconomowoc? Hey, I'm south of Dousman off 67 in the town of Ottawa.

    Just how heavy is the speaker?

    I helped a buddy on a budget place his speakers and he found some very inexpensive but sturdy (holds up to 40 lbs.) at Parts Express. They hold his speakers about 5-6" out from the wall. They are adjustable side to side and up and down. They are $18.50 a pair. Not bad.

    Here's the link:

    If the link doesn't work for you, go to www.partsesxpress.com and look for part no. 300-252

    Just my $.02 worth.
