I bought a house that was prewired for surround sound, and each speaker location had a wall plate where the wire was. I found mounts on the internet that allowed you to use the wall plates to secure a speaker on the wall, however, I wasn't set on what speakers I wanted to get. I also wanted to avoid using in-wall speakers, as you can loose sound in the wall, as well as I wanted to avoid sawing, and patching. I lucked out I and found these in an open box section of Best Buy. I looked at the back bracket and saw these would perfectly fit on a wall plate, with some rigging. I just bought some special screws at the hardware stores, and used metal washers to secure the speakers. The speakers sound fantastic, and are crystal clear. It even produces some good bass, if you don't have a subwoofer. These would do well for an indoor or outdoor installation. You won't be disappointed with the sound produced from these things!
