The Best Way to mount rear Surround Sound Speakers for Home Theater Systems

Spending thousands of dollars on state of the art home theater equipment does not necessarily guarantee an aesthetically beautiful and immersive experience. If you don’t know how to maximize what you got and ensure all components are properly coordinated, even the most expensive of home theater systems can fall flat.

If you have rear channel surround sound speakers, what we recommend is getting them up off the floor and mounted. There are many advantages to having mounted rear surround sound speakers.  There’s no chance you’ll accidentally knock them over getting popcorn, it’ll look great, and best of all, you’re optimizing the way your ears catch the sound.


Every Canadian household should be mounting their rear surround sound speakers for maximum effect. Though the sound that comes through your speakers will be more or less the same, you’ll notice a big difference in your home theater’s appearance and the functional layout of the room. All you need to mount your rear surround sound speakers are the appropriate mounts and mounting hardware, a stud finger, and cordless drill. If the intention is to also install new cables, a wire stripper and cutter may also be required. If you’ve ever mounted shelves before, it’s pretty much the same task.


After you’ve chosen your surround sound speaker mounts and know the location of where you want to install them, use a stud finder to ensure there are no electrical conduits, pipes, or other hazards you could drill into. From there, drill a hole into the wall, clean out the holes, and then, insert the appropriate wall anchors. From there, the process should be pretty straightforward. We recommend examining the installation instructions for further information on how to proceed.
