Hey guys,

Could anyone post more descriptive detail on what the process is to mount the W22 and Vp150 center ONTO a wall?

Are you talking about the in-wall/on-wall hybrid speakers (which require a rectangular hole in the wall), or the new on-wall surface mount speakers? If it's the latter, then the on-wall M22 uses this cool bracket:



You screw that into the wall in the desired location, attach the speaker wire to it, then the M22 clips onto the horizontal metal pieces. This takes care of the physical mounting and the electrical connections at once.

The on-wall VP150 uses a pair of T-brackets like this:



The VP150 has tabs on the rear that slide onto the brackets:




I can explain it to you but I can't understand it for you.

On the wall. I don't want to cut a hole in the wall \:\)

Do you have a picture of the bass port on this model?

How do you plan to route wire to the speaker, up the wall? For the new onwall bracket a very small hole would be required for a nice clean installation.

I tried to put my wire in the wall by drilling two holes (one at the speaker location and one near the baseboard), but when I ran my fishing line down, I hit a horizontal stud. I'm not quite ready to cut the drywall away to bore a hole through it, but I may get there. For now, my wires are exposed.

Do you have a crawl space or basement? Or attic from above? Lowes has Greenlee Low Voltage bits with extensions (but they are sort of proud of them), you can get there!

I did not know this. This is great info. I think for this reason, it kills this idea for me.

Well, no matter how you're going to mount speakers on your wall, you're going to have to get signal to them somehow!
