Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Extremely versatile speaker mount

Waste of Money

Written By SeattleJo, Seattle, WA on Tuesday, October 09, 2012

I bought these to wall mount the cambridge s20's which are a little under 5lbs. I can't keep them from sagging, and the end attachment that connects to the keyhold on the speaker looks like it might not hold (It doesn't look firmly connected), and I can't tighten it anymore without damaging the plastic.

Very disappointing purchase. This mount came as a recommended accessory from Crutchfield when purchasing the speakers. Terrible recommendation!

Pros: Small/minimalistic, looks fine.

Cons: Looks like it might not hold 5lb speaker, won't hold 5lb speaker at angle I want it too.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Rated for 8 pounds but "hangs" with a 4 pound speaker (No matter how it is mounted and following the instructions to the letter). Cheap plastic. Packaging is a nightmare to open so returns are pretty much impossible. Very disppointing purchase. Spend the extra $ and buy top quality and metal (if possible) mounts if your speakers weigh more than 1 pound with these.

Pros: Almost unlimited movement to aim speakers where you want. Stylish design.

Cons: Too many to list.

Pragmatic and reliable

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Sanus is "the" name in speaker mounts. I recommend this pair if you have satellite speakers, under 8 lbs., and need a quick and dependable mount. They are easy to mount, even easier to aim and adjust, and look 'smart' wherever you need them.

Pros: Easy to mount, easy to aim, solid, dependable, sturdy

Cons: Solid black - which can contrast to certain decors

Speaker Mounting Brackets

Written By bobw, Fort Lauderdale, FL on Wednesday, May 25, 2011

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good product. I used them to install the rear speakers of my sound system from the ceiling. The only problem is that the bracket is not hollow and I had to run the speaker wiring externally so it doesn't look as good. Also, I found the identical brackets at Best Buy the next weekend for $14.99. Next time I'll shop around more.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

I'd have to say I was impressed with these wall brackets! I love how you can move these
things to any angle you want. The only problem I had was I owned the Polk Audio TL2B
satellite speakers and these wall mounts didn't come with a screw long enough to fit
into the back of the speakers. Mostly due to the design of the speakers but I called
Crutchfield and they sent me a screw kit that had longer screws in it! So at the end of the
day I am very pleased with these wall brackets and would recommend these to anybody!!
