Dayton SB36 wall mount question

This is a new part for Dayton and of course the manual is not to be found...the brief description is well, brief.  My problem is that Parts Express outlines it as wall mountable with 16" studs and I have 13.5" on center studs for my application.  Will I still be able to utilize this product?

Re: Dayton SB36 wall mount question

Only you have the answer. Is there enough adjustment if you mounted on your wall specs? If not absolutely no!!!!! To support the weight, you must be in the stud.

But a question. Is this an interior or exterior wall. If you house is made of concrete block, the exterior wall only has 1x2 studs. The interior studs are usually framed by 2x4 (1.5x 3.5 in reality). Some houses use aluminum studes which I personally would not use.

If you are on an exterior wall, you couldn't use wood screws anyway. I would suggest using the appropriate TapCon. A screw made for concrete. An appropriate lenght might be 2 1/2 to 3 inches. This depends on sheetrock (1/2 or 3/4 inch) the depth of the bracket (you need to measure). To find the sheetrock depth simply take the cover off an AC receptacle. See if you some how measure the entire distance to the actual outside wall (stick a skewer along side the box till you make contact). Add 1 1/2" for the concrete, whatever your bracket depth is (at the point were screws go) and viola, you have the proper length of the screw. To size the screw, use the larget that your bracket can take (usually a #10 or 12). Definately pre-drill using the right size bit.

Hope this helps.

I have a pair of Mission M50's and am considering mounting them on the wall. However, it says something in the manual that they shouldn't be too close to the wall and there is no obvious way of...

The reason they shouldn't be too close to the wall is because the refelction that would generate, making them respond unpredictable, mostly in the lower frequency response, Booming basses are most likely. That won't danmage your speakers, so if you don't mind, you can always attach them to a wall with after-merket mounts. You'll have to screw those in the back of your speaker though...

My Tannoy IW8 tdc is rubbing. Piano sounds like a chorus of ducks.

If the speakers are rubbing against the Fabric Cover, try removing the cover to see if this fixes the sound problem. If not, there may be a mount, etc. that has come loose inside the speaker. Since it is an in-wall speaker, you will have to remove the speaker from the wall and check the internals for the cause of the rubbing. If all else fails, contact the place where you purchased the speakers to see about getting the problem speaker replaced.

Polk Audio DSW Pro 500 remote doesn't"t work. I've tried replacing the battery and was told by another technician to take the sub-woofer out and make sure the cable is plugged up to the amp and the IR...

Is this NEW? Or did it just fail spontaneously after working for awhile?

Is this just a remote control issue or is the sub dead, too?

From the manual...

No sound coming from subwoofer.

If hookup is "SUB OUT" to LFE, check and make sure your receiver is set to Subwoofer=YES. If hookup is via speaker wire, check that the polarity of the wires is correct.

Subwoofer has no power.

Is the AC MAIN switch on? Check outlet; check fuse after unplugging the subwoofer. The fuse is located under the power cord
receptacle. Fuse type and rating is found on the back panel.

Remote control doesn't work.

Remove the plastic tab to activate the remote control's battery or try replacing the battery. Ensure the IR sensor is not blocked.

If it's a new problem with a previously working remote...

It describes a way to possibly fix your remote or at least prove it works or doesn't.

Find new or replacement remotes:

or eBay: search for "(model) remotes", check the 'include description' box. Usually cheaper than the vendors.

I need to find out how to mount stereo MA-10D speakers to a wall. I can't see any mounting capabilities on the back, sides, top, or bottom of the speakers. Has anyone successfully mounted speakers like...

Hmmm. .U don't have option given for speakers to fix them onto the wall. You have to do the following steps.
Things U need are:
  • Masking Tape
  • Level
  • Pencil
  • Keyhole saw
  • UL Class 2 speaker wire
  • Fish tape
  1. Locate the studs closest to where you'd like to install your speaker. You'll want to install the speakers in between the studs.
  2. Tape the template that comes with the speakers in the center. Check to make sure your configuration is level and plumb. Your template will tell you exactly what size hole to drill to insert the speakers. Trace the opening you need to cut into the wall or ceiling
  3. Cut the hole using a keyhole saw or a drywall saw. Keep the section you cut open in case you can't install the speaker and need to patch the hole you just made. If the hole reveals plumbing, you need to relocate the speaker
  4. Run the speaker wire through the wall, or fish speaker wire from an existing installation.
  5. Install the brackets to support your speaker if one is included with your speakers. Some speakers use clips to secure them to the inside of the wall.
  6. Strip the protective coating from the end of the speaker wire, and insert it into the speaker jacks. Test your speakers now if the wires are attached to an audio source. If not, locate the other end of the speaker wire and hook it up. Testing now will save trouble if you run into problems.
  7. Surround the speaker with insulation to enhance the sound. Secure the speaker into place, and do any necessary patching or painting

How can I mount these on the wall?

The WS-100 is a floor standing speaker, and they are equipped with polycarbonate bases, attached right out of the box for ease of setup, providing a secure stable speaker system.For the price you paid I would not risk wall mount but if they must be eleveate I suggust a mounting shelve then the speakers ontop (shelves must hold speaker weight)

Base too heavy for downstairs neighbors

Try a board with two screws through the front and one at the rear,set on the floor points down and then set your sub on top,this should help,also if you make 2or3 boards your bass should be tighter and not travel so much down to the flat below but will not go away,sorry but the only other thing you can do is buy ear plugs for your neighbours.
Hope this helps.

Mounting under flat screen tv

There is no wall mount bracket for the VCS-10. It was not designed to be wall mounted. Your best solution is to mount a 22"x8" shelf to the wall 4-6" below the TV. Make sure it is mounted sturdy enough to support 10lbs.

I need a module

I have the same subwoofer, my amp crapped out as well. I am going to take out the JBL amp and replace it with a dayton sa240. They are not close in measurement but I'm going to seal the old amp hole with mdf and cut another hole for the new amp.
