    Wanting to mount tv, rec and speakers on back porch....

    Ok I have cable running right under my eave down my back porch so I think I can splice that cable to make another outlet where I want to mount a TV. TV will be an old 25" crt that I dont care about if it goes out but it will be protected by porch.
    I bought a cheap receiver and 4 outdoor speakers from best buy that I plan out getting mounted this week....only problem is finding a cabinet that I mount to brick to hold my receiver..have anyone seen something like that this? just a 2 shelf or 3 shelf with a door that can be hard mounted to the back brick of my house?

    Check out this site. I just searched for "TV& VCR wall Bracket"

    As long as you mount to a solid surface you are ok.

    I have seen them at Home Depot in the Electrical dept near the antenna stuff.

    Hope this helps you.

    I will be interested in knowing whether you get the 27" CRT TV mounted to exterior brick like that without pulling the bricks off the wall. Good luck.

    Personally, I go outside to get away from the @#$%$$ TV, but you can mount about anything you want on a brick wall all you need is proper anchors.

    I have a friend who did the same thing with an old tv and it's been outside for almost 2 years with no problem. They just put a cover over it when not in use. And if it goes out, for a couple hundred bucks, they can replace it. At that rate, you could buy over 25 tv's before you spend as much as the lcd RT suggested.

    we love it though. i will never, ever, spend that much on a a tv again. i said to the family if its broken you can live with out. i was going to just get another CRT. then DW and D k (kids) came and said we want this or else (not sure what the or else was) so i blew my money i had saved up to go on vacation this year on it. LOL. but i hate to say, its worth it. plus since im an avid DIY'r the cost was offset by me and my oldest installing it (spent 3 weeks). it was fun and the quailty time before he moved out was worth 50x's more IMO.

    i love to put on CMT and have the sound piped through the speakers in the back yard. my neighbors think im nuts, but who cares. :P

    I agree with the whole going outside to get away from the TV. I rarely watch it inside, there is just too much life to be lived without needing to be entertained 24/7. But, I would say that as far as putting anything you want on a brick wall, I would answer that with the proper methods, yes you can, leaving the anchorments out of it though. If you drill in three anchors into brick, and chunk a 27" CRT on top of it, in my opinion, you are going to do something bad to the wall.

    If you used Lag type anchors, that expand as you put a lag bolt in them, I would imagine that it would hold, but would the weight of the TV not pull the brick? I would not be surprised if it did at least. I have never tried it, but I would then again never try it. If I were to try it I would probably get something made which would both bolt to the wall and have vertical legs for supports. Knowing a welder is probably the best thing in the world...
