As for the americans looking for similar things, any L bracket should do fine. Just look for something that is a bit more heavy duty than a cabinet holder. Lowes should have them, as should home depot.

In regards to painting, It's metal and thus should be fairly simple. I'm no spraypainter, so don't rely on me, but I think a primer and then black spraypaint would be fine, probably should sand it down before you prime as well.
I'm definitely not going to drill a hole lol, takes longer than 5 minutes and it'll take me some time to clean it up when I'm done... What I'm thinking of doing is getting some really good and wide duct tape that's white (matches the wall) and tape that onto the cord and put that onto the wall.

I'll try spray painting it sometime maybes...

I have the same speakers, but I just pounded a little nail into the wall. Seems to hold them up OK for me. Your way is a little more professional though, especially with the ability to angle the speakers from side to side. I like it.
Thanks I don't want to put holes in the wall, cause I really don't like fixing them again.

My net is playing up... stupid double post.

I might have to change this to a $10, 10 minute Speaker wall mount if I decide to add all this stuff onto it.

@Mootfox: I can't stop staring at your DP!

nice guide. cool idea!
as for painting, just sand with about 320-400grit sandpaper, primer is usually a good idea for metal. grit doesn't matter too much, but lower tends to leave scratch marks, and higher may not be able to get it even. Im not a painting pro or anything, but ive done it before.

thats cool, right now my speakers are sitting ontop of my bed top bar, somtimes they fall of in the middle of the night, just mising my head lol, i might try this out, and you dont need any screws to screw in the mount, does it stick with adhesive?

IMHO,

Holes in wall > crash/thud in the middle of the night

You could even use a standard picture hanger that would leave the tiniest hole and just bend the hook if needed. If you're determined to not drill holes this adhesive based hook could work (not sure if it will fit in the hole on the speaker though) but it is a little more expensive...$8.24 ea @ Home Depot

Depends on speakers and weight and wall type.

IMHO I had thought of doing that except them by themselves cost about $6 here
