    I was thinking of making a small pair of shelves front and rear to put some bookshelfs on. Should I just do stands? Will putting bookshelfs on shelves make it sound not as good?

    A shelf will place them near the wall, which will certainly increase bass response compared to having them out from the wall. Whether or not that will sound better or worse – you’ll have to try it to see. If you have them on stands now, it should be easy to get an idea, simply by moving them back closer to the wall.

    If you do go the shelf route, place them out at the edge, to eliminate reflections off the shelf.

    If you want to go small speakers get some satelite speakers like the Energy Take 5.2 system. You can wall mount all of them with a wall mount bracket and they will be out of reach. If you want to go a little further to move them closer to you ceiling mount them. I always joke about getting one of those invisible fences around my HT. Just a joke though.
