Instructables

I've been having these speakers clutter up my desk for a long time and I finally decided to declutter my desktop and hiding the wires came as an added bonus. The benefit of this method is that it cost me $6.

Step 1: What You Need

---1/2" PVC electrical conduit (it's much cheaper than the drinking water kind---about $1.50 for 10 feet).

---A 1/2" type T fitting (a tee like you might get with plumbing pvc except it opens to allow pulling wires through)

---four 4m metric screws (the length will depend on the thickness of the next item needed)

---Something to mount the piping on (I had a used piece of 1/2" plywood that I didn't even have to cut!).

Tools: Screw drivers, a drill, a pencil, measuring tapes, something to cut your PVC, and a straight edge.

Step 2: Getting Started With The Mount

Measure the board or whatever you're using so that you can mark the center of the board.

Once you've done this you can measure out the dimensions of the mount on the back of your monitor. Mine happens to be the VESA 100mm x 100mm standard. There is also a smaller 75mm x 75mm standard for smaller monitors. Check your manual to see what the dimensions are so that you can measure it properly.

Mark the spots for the holes with x's and drill with a bit slightly larger than your screws.

To mount the T fitting to the board, drill holes through the back of the fitting and screw it to the board.

Step 3: Fitting and Cutting Supports

Attach the board to the monitor with the 4m metric screws. If you're a little off on your holes you could drill them bigger so that they will line up.

Cut your PVC tubing a little longer than what you need so you can fine tune it based on the size of your monitors and the size of the speakers you'll be mounting.
