To take full advantage of the audio speakers that came with your computer monitor, you may want to position them higher and wider than is possible if they are attached to the monitor or placed on your computer desk. By mounting the speakers on the wall, you will not only achieve the desired sound dimensions, but also save desk space. Many monitor speakers come with wall-mounting kits.

Choose and mark a location on the wall.
Attach the mounting brackets to the wall. Drill directly into a stud inside the wall for the greatest stability. If there is no stud at the mounting location, pre-drill holes slightly smaller than the anchors included with the bracket kit, then insert the anchors.
For speakers not compatible with mounting brackets, attach a bookshelf wall mount. Screw the brackets or bookshelf mount firmly against the wall.
Run the audio cables from the computer to the speakers. Connect them and make sure there is enough slack in the cable to mount the speakers.
Hang the speakers from the bracket by aligning the keyhole mount on the back of the speaker with the nub on the bracket and then sliding the speaker down firmly.Alternately, set the speakers on the bookshelf mounts and clamp them in.
Tips and warnings
- Test various configurations by having a second or third person hold the speakers in various locations while music is playing.
- Remember that audio cable must run from the computer to the speakers, and you will have to mount a bracket to the wall wherever the speakers are mounted.
- Never exceed the maximum weight limitations of a mounting bracket or shelf.
