A mounting screw's ability to support a speaker depends
on how well it's anchored to the wall. If you have hollow
walls, screw each mounting screw into a stud. If there are
no studs, or the walls are solid, use suitable wall anchors.
Use screws with a head diameter of 3/8" or less and a
shank diameter of 1/8" or less. With hollow walls, use a
cable/pipe detector to check for any power cables or
water pipes before making any holes.
Leave a gap of between 1/4" and 5/16" between the wall
and the base of the screw head, as shown.
