    I'm buying my first surround speakers soon now and I've decided to go with the JBL S36II speakers. Now my little "problem" is this: One side of my wall where I would put one of the speakers have a stud in the wall but other side doesn't. Would it be bad if I tried to mount the speaker anyways on that side or should I try and think of another solution(which I can't think of right now...[​IMG])
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Viktor,
    I had the same problem when I was hanging my S36II's and didn't have any studs where I wanted to put them. My solution was to use a type of drywall hanger I got from a local home improvement store, I believe they were rated for 25lbs a piece, and I used 4 of them per speaker. They are basically made of two parts, a large white plastic screw that was driven into the drywall, and a normal metal screw that inserted into that. Just left the metal screw exposed from the wall about a half inch and hung the S36II on it. It's been about 6 months, and no problems so far, I'd swear I could almost hang myself from them [​IMG] Try asking someone at your local hardware store for a drywall screw that can hold that much weight, they are a number of different kinds, and they should be able to point you to something that will work.
    Happy listening [​IMG]
