Hi everyone, So I’m trying to finally install my speakers after 11 years in my place. I can’t handle the floor standing setup so I reworded everything and that has made a heck of a difference in sound quality, but I am torn as to where to mount the speakers on the wall. I am aiming to have them 2-3’ above the main listening position, but I’m struggling with the limitations of my room and where the best spot to place them would be. They are 2 energy encore bookshelf speakers, and if I want them up off the floor I’ve got 2 different placement options. It’s a 5.1 system. Here’s the layout from the front and the back https://imgur.com/a/GjQJFLr The blue is a stud, but placing it there is about level with my right ear. The other option, if I want to keep them equal in placement is not in a stud. They’re 5 pounds and I have the necessary equipment to secure them, although I’m a little anxious about them being in drywall only, I also don’t know what’s inside the wall there and I’m hoping it’s just empty, but there’s no way without spending a fortune to know. I also can’t really do much else with the install cost wise. I posted on another forum and they had some suggestions for an in wall mount but it’s gotta be on the wall alone. So the question is do I mount them at the blue arrow which will be in a stud but also be right to my right and left ear. Or I can go back about a foot and have them in drywall and pushed out to behind the light on the left side, which isn’t ideal for anyone sitting in the corner of the couch. I’d love any thoughts as to what might work best. I have a denon avr with Audyssey which has worked really well to optimize the sound quality now that I have decent wiring in place with good quality banana plugs. Thanks in advance!
