I'm in the process of planning for finishing my basement. I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle the rear channels, of something say like a Song Surround I or II. Right now there is nothing but a block wall so I'm pretty free to do whatever.
Is the best approach to finish the wall normally and then buy some sort of wall mount? If so, which one is pretty good? Or should I build some sort of custom cubby/ledge to set the speaker on and then I could build the wiring right into the wall? This is kind of the way I'm leaning, but I'm not exactly sure what I'd build without encroaching into the floorspace much. I am also trying to figure out the best height to put the speakers. Normally, they are ear level, but in most "mounted" configurations people seem to have them fairly high up.
Thanks all for any help.
