Erm, with wall mount brackets ;-)

Trouble is, Quad 11s pushed right against the wall...

Push them back now and see what I mean.

Watch those rear ports, I have some 11ls for AV use and they like a bit of room otherwise they boom.

You could try stuffing the ports, best to push them back now and see what you think before you buy brackets and drill your wall etc

Bad idea is relative. Wall-mounting rear ported 'speakers is never a "good" idea, but at times there is little alternative. Try moving the 'speakers closer and closer to the wall, and see what the minimum distance is for an acceptable sound.Ifthen that still gives you room for wall brackets (Omnimounts generally space something like 10cms from the wall) you know it's worth doing. If you can't get them closer than, say 20 or 30cm from the wall, then no wall mount will space that far, so the choice is then either different 'speakers or different mounting arrangements.As the 'speakers aren't terribly heavy, you could try a TV bracket if you really have to wall mount them, and can't have them closer than 20-30cms.

You could also try bunging up the bass port with something like a rolled-upsock if bass booms, but generally, moving the port closer to thewall will reduce bass anyway. It's the wall gain caused by getting close to the reflective back surface that causes the problem.

Wall mounting could increase the nuisance factor for your neighbours by increasing the transmission of sound to their side, especially bass notes which will rumble through, even if relatively speaking standmounts/bookshelf speakers produce less bass than a floor stander.
