My upstairs office setup is about to get an upgrade. I currently have 2- Super Sat 3's as my main with an FF3 under the footwell of my desk. The SS3's will get mounted on the back wall and I will be putting the Aon 2's up front. (with a center channel later)

Dilema, no room to put stands, they have to be on the wall. Either a Shelf for each unit, or a mounting bracket that will handle the weight.

Any recommendations?

I am thinking a solid bookshelf of about 12" - 14" square would do it. That would give me adjustment space to tow in the units properly for imaging. I have blue clay to keep vibrations damped. I could also be interested in a larger bracket that puts the unit away from the wall.

Question is about what is the best for placement. I know I am limited but will I be hurting the performance keeping them so close to the wall?

Looking forward to a full surround unit in my office as I game as well there and I am sure Destiny and call of duty will sound awesome....

Or do you think I will get any benefit of going from the SS3 to the Aon 2 with my setup? Once in full surround system and dialed in will I notice a difference? If not I could just pick up 2 more SS3 and a SS3 center and call it a day.

Roman,

Anthem installed these. They look good and he gave a positive review. I'll use something like these eventually. Right now they are simple wall mounted.

Cheers,

Thanks!! Actually this is a duplicate of my first post. I posted it and it never showed up. I figured I forgot to hit send and wrote the second post you responded to. Must have been some weird delay in the ether between hitting send and it showing up here. :)
