Pioneer SP-BS22LR 4" Andrew Jones-designed 2-Way Bookshelf Speaker Pair
Is the imaging / performance negatively impacted by positioning them horizontally? I have a 10 inch height restraint in the cabinetry for the AV equipment.
Off axis response will be affected by placing them on their sides but in most cases this is not going to be a huge problem.

What type of connection do these speakers use? Do they directly accept speaker wire?
These use binding posts and will accept standard bare speaker wire.

What do I need to power up these babies?
I want to hook up my laptop to these speakers with a standard jack pin. What kind of amp would I need? I am not sure about the ohm-wattage relationship. I would like to have something with a smaller footprint but I might consider getting a receiver for future expansion. But then again I do not want to set these speakers to fire with a 100wpc output. Something like a small t-amp without a hiss would be nice. Any recommendation/experience?
There are many small amplifier options that will work for these. Our Dayton DTA-1 or the Lepai LP-2020A+ will also work well.

How can I mount these to a wall?
I just picked up a pair of these bookshelf speakers, and they sound phenomenal. I bought them for a second office system, but I now realize they would be best as rear-channels in my HT. Is there any way that they can be mounted to a wall? (Speaker stands will not work in my space.) Any advice appreciated.
You will likely have to drill into the cabinet in order to mount these to the wall. I would recommend the smarter speaker wall brackets below.

Why did they catch FIRE?
Can anyone help me with a question about setting a pair of these on fire? I have an onkyo HTR only pushing 40wpc ( front speakers are the only ones powered..so that would be 20 watts to each correct?) and a varible ohm allowance. I had the volume up quite a bit, I smelled it first but could not see anything, next thing I know flames are coming out the back, and front of the speakers. Needless to say after the shock of seeing my front two speakers on fire ..... I shut the system down and put the fire out( no damage to my system thank God). What could have cause this? I'm a firefighter and still cannot figure out what caused it. I have a really old pair of speakers attached to them now and can crank it up with no fire (LOL which is a good thing) Iam kind of shy about buying another set of speakers to hook to this system. Oh its a 2005 era system 5.1 HTR. Is there anyone that can explain it and take away the shyness; I really want to upgrade my system cause I'm in a new house with lots more room and could use some more power and clairity.thanksPat the fireman...LOL, still makes me laugh when I think about it.
The only thing that can make a speaker catch fire (short of lighting it on fire) is overpowering. You mention they were up "quite a bit" which tells me they were simply overpowered and the crossovers or voice coils got too hot.
