We’ve shored up the Studio 290’s interior with edge-to-edge bracing so that there’s minimal cabinet flexing and bass distortion. Finally, we’ve introduced seductive 21st century features like gloss black paneling, soft rounded edges, and your choice of either Black or Espresso woodgrain finish. For those able to see and hear the truth, we’re confident you’ll know it – full volume – when you see and hear the Studio 290.

What are the dimensions and can they be mounted to the wall

Asked by: Misty
Here are the dimensions for the speaker (H x W x D):1197mm x 273mm x 330mm(47-1/8" x 10-3/4" x 13"). They can be mounted on the wall given that you have a heavy duty mount and a strong/sturdy wall. These speakers are designed as floor standing speakers, so if you intend to mount them you would need to poke/drill holes into the for the mounts.
