    How did U mount your Mirage OMR2s?
    I am having the hardest time trying to find something to get these things mounted.
    If I go with 9mm screws I can't use both sides of the studs in the wall because these speakers aren't that wide.
    I couldn't find a wall shelf deep enough to place the speakers on from Home Depot or Lowes.
    How in the world did you guys mount your Mirage OMR2s,
    using screws or some type of shelving on the wall?
    If you used screws, what type did you use?
    (I'm female so you are going to have to tell me the exact type)
    If you used shelving, where did you purchase this shelving from?
    Did you make the shelving yourself?
    I would like pictures of mounted OMR2s if possible!

    Thanks!

    Don't need to screw 'em into studs, just use spring clips/molly bolts ,etc. and hang directly from drywall...there not too heavy

    Glenise,I just got a pair of OMR2s a week and a half ago.The 9mm screws will be fine.Don't worry about the studs.Just use sinkers in the drywall.I used plastic sinkers and the speakers are very secure.By the way,they sound fantastic too!Good luck with mounting them. Lee

    I found that four 2.5" drywall screws supported the speakers just fine.
    Lining up the four keyholes on the back of the speaker with the screws is the fun part ! [​IMG]

    I just used 2 screws for the top holes and put them directly into the drywall, stud or no stud. I wasn't able to use the banana lug because then they would be sticking to far out from the wall so I wired them bare.
