I know of us use bookshelves, or table tops (yucks) for this, or stands and mounts. Depending on your aesthetic demands/need to get the speakers out of the way, your methods of mounting the speakers will vary.
Been doing some research work on this:
Some speakers come with their mounts, such as the MA Radius speakers.
There are a few brands locally, but if you are willing to import, there are more choices.
There are many Omnimounts and you can get them off amazon or Monoprice too.
Many speakers come with their screw thread behind, but it is vital to assess the mount to see if it will take the weight, and give it some excess.
Check too if the wall itself especially if it is not solid can take the mount.
Other considerations are if the mounts can pivot or rotate.
Colors - black is about the only choice, unless you are willing to spray paint it..
Avoid mounting it right at the top near the ceiling - the boundary effect really changes the sound. And if it is a rear ported speaker, the sound could change too if it is not allowed to breathe.
We have the Queenie brands for about $30 or so. Available from SLS .
There is the Sanus:
[quote]The Sanus WMS2 is a tilt and swivel wall mount for speakers up to 15 lbs / 6.82 kg. About $90.
