    Default PA speaker in recording room question

    OK so my room is getting close, but I'm thinking it would be great to get my PA speakers mounted rather than being on stands so I can get them off the floor. I'm looking at these:

    From an acoustics perspective... am I creating a much better (meaning worse isolation) path for audio by using these guys hung right on the wall? It's an outside wall (which they all are in my room).

    If it matters, I have two layers of 5/8 on the wall with the green glue sandwich. Obviously these guys need to be mounted to a stud.

    What do you think?

    I mounted a pair of nearfield monitors to my wall in the main recording room using standoff brackets. I couldn't be happier. Great for rehearsals, playback, etc. Definitely, mount to a stud.

    Thanks Q... I ended up not doing this because of my paranoia about protecting the soundproofing.
