    Hi, guys!

    I bought e305 some days ago, but didn’t know about weight of each speakers. In front of my sitting-room I planing to installing 3 speakers on the wall, but it’s drywall. And at first sight it will be falls when I will watch first action film.

    Maybe somebody had the same problems and could share experience with me?

    Not sure I follow. Are you looking for others who have had their KEF e305’s fall off the wall during an action picture?

    If you use quality components such as self locking screws you should be fine. I know there is a language issue here but it seems you are worried about something that shouldn’t be an issue unless you are just screwing them straight in. That will not work

    Or attach them to a stud, if one is in a convenient location.

    As John said - always try to put at least one fastener in a stud if at all possible. Drywall anchors work but will never have the capacity or safety of the proper sized fasteners in wood.

    ADDED: Most anchors will list a capacity so you can check that against the speaker weight.

    FWIW, I never use wall anchors. First, they make enormous holes, which are a problem if you want to remove them. In this situation, I expect attaching a speaker to a hollow void would cause undesirable sonic side effects. Attaching to a stud eliminates any concern about weight bearing, or making a large area of drywall vibrate and possibly turn into a sound source.

    The expectation is that you are on sconces or other isolators, not attaching them directly to the wall. I have my side and rear speakers so mounted and they work fine with no echoes.

    But speakers have stems, which installing to the wall or you can just put on some area, for example TV stand. Yes there is a distance about 16 cm between a drywall and the wall and I have some worries about the sound of drywall

    You can always mount a shelf on the wall, and sit the speaker on the shelf. That’s what I typically do.
