Hanging Speakers from the Ceiling... Macrame???

Hi All,

How many of you can still see the image of speakers hanging from eye-hooks in the ceiling, cradled in macrame slings? I am considering this dated technology, and would like some feedback on both the speaker positioning approach and where to get the right speaker hangers.

The speakers under question are Harbeth Compact 7's. I know. What a waste. They should be placed on sturdy stands, on the floor, half way out into the room! But here is my situation. I just bought my first house, and am in the process of installing a listening room. The "second system" will be in the living room, which is slanted upward from 8 to 14 feet high over a 17-foot span. There isn't really room on the floor for the speakers, and the "serious listening" will happen in the listening room. So, I thought I'd load the room from up high, from the high end, firing down into the listening space. Is that a crazy idea? I know I'll lose my imaging, but it fits the room and provides the ambient music. OK - what do you think.

Assuming I am going to do this, what types of hanging is available for suspending from the ceiling? Should I go to ebay and search for macrame?

Thanks for your suggestions.
Thanks guys. Great suggestions. I especially like the web link. I'll get in touch with this guy!
if the speaker does not move on the ground, it will not move hanging in the air. if they arn't hanging yet, give me a quick explanation of how to attach a picture, and i will send a picture of my re-30. hung upside using nylon webbing and a swivel. $30 total. they dont move and i have loaded them up with 200 watts of hip-hop.
You can use a product at home depot called aircraft cable and it has a very nice finish.
