Too big

Written By Vitalspark, Seattle on Tuesday, May 20, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
They work but they are ugly. Far too big. I put a digital camera with big lens on a ball socket type head thats probably stronger, half the weight and far neater. These look like something you would use in a commercial environment not the home. Hat to say it but the Bose Jewel mount is the standard.
Pros:
Works
Cons:
Big, Ugly.

Written By RMS, Magnolia,De on Tuesday, May 06, 2014
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I bought these for a set of ProMonitor 1000. The speakers are mounted high and on an angle. If you mount your speaker straight these are fine. The bolt in the pivot slips and the speaker will spin. Cructhfield sent my another set and the same. they wont hold and they spun. Either I send them back again and try another set or a new different kind.
Pros:
Straight on the wall they are fine
Cons:
Funny angles they slip.Too high price.

Great mount

Written By Anonymous, Texas on Friday, August 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
This mount is a great design. Note you get two in the box. I needed two for a Def Tech Pro Center 2000 install. The design is good. There are really two parts: a hard rubberish ball with stud, the mount with clamping features. The Pro Center 2000 has two mounting areas so i was worried initially about lining these up on the wall perfectly. No issue here. You actually can remove the ball/stud from the mount and install that on the speaker. Then install the rest of the mount on the wall to the best of your ability. Then just lift the speaker up, insert the balls in the clamps and tightem em down. Magic. Def Tech should spend more time advertising these. All in all, these are well designed mounts that can handle some weight. Worth the $50.

These are small, compact and sleek mounts. They are not overbearing and they work great.
Pros:
Easy to install and use
Cons:
Did not come with mounting screws. You will need to buy those extra - depending on how you intend to mount these.

Sturdy, But

Written By MichaelB, Pleasant View, UT on Thursday, May 02, 2013
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Used these to wall mount some Pro 1000s. They are sturdy, and do the job, but after mounting a few other speakers with the PinPoint AM20 mounts, the lack of hardware (screws), and the quality of the product (noticable mold depressions), I wish I would have just orderd two more of the AM20s. As a matter of fact, I used the extra screws from the AM20s, to secure these ProMount 90s.
Pros:
sturdy
Cons:
no mounting screws, finish quality

Great mount. Made with metal that will hold up. The attachment to the speaker is secure and I don't have to worry about my new speakers falling. The swivel allows for any angle option.
Pros:
Great mount, great angle options. I ordered too many because I didn't read thoroughly, they come in pairs. Crutchfield has great customer service that made the return a breeze.
Cons:

I now have 12 of these Definitive Technology ProMount 90's in white installed in my house, some into drywall, using screw-type anchors and some into studs, all using screws with white heads. The mounts are superior, both esthetically and functionally and, I believe, worth their cost.

The perfect mounts for my Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 and ProMonitor 800 and 1000 speakers!

A CRITICAL DESIGN FLAW

Written By IrvG, Mooresville, NC on Thursday, January 31, 2013
 
These mounts would be great if not for a critical flaw in their manufacture. Although the casting itself is rock solid, the threaded rod going into the swivel ball loosens and causes the speaker to laterally rotate in the mount.

At first I thought the clamp wasn't tightened sufficiently. However, upon closer examination, I found that the rod going into the hard plastic ball had partially broken loose from whatever method was used to bond it internally. I now have lateral play on my speaker which causes it to move sideways about an inch in either direction. I'm hoping it won't get worse.

I called Definitive Technology and explained the problem. Of course that had never heard of it happening before. They agree to send replacement swivel balls immediately.

But when you consider how top heavy the Pro-Monitoritor 1000s are, and how the threaded fastener engages the bottom of the speaker, it is no stretch of the imagination to say that all this force is being transmitted entirely through the rod into the swivel ball. The slightest touch on the mounted speaker is enough to cause the rod to break loose from its internal bond with the ball.

I had hoped there might have been an interlocking device inside the ball to provide a solid mechanical restraint, but apparently, the rod goes straight into the ball with no sort of interlock.

I have been using these brackets for 25 years. The design is simple and clean. They adjust up/down and side-to-side (sort of) and they are very secure. I would recommend these to anyone who seeks an unassuming but solid wall bracket. All necessary hardware was included.
Pros:
* Well Designed * Well Built
Cons:
The price

Strong wall mount. Simple and easy to install. The mounting bracket has a center hole (not shown on photos or described in literature) that can be used to feed speaker wire through it to conceal the speaker wire feed. Looks great in our room.

Simple. Strong.

ProMounts for speakers

Written By Sharon, Tampa, FL on Tuesday, December 11, 2012
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
Having gotten my Definitive 800 speakers last Christmas and jamming all the front speakers, left, right and center, on a TV cabinet, I decided to try mounting them on the wall behind the TV with the ProMount 90s. WOW! What a difference in sound quality! Were it not for the mounts I don't know how I could have accomplished this. I also have smaller rear speakers connected by Rocketfish which now seem to have come alive! I turned to a nature TV program and my dog went crazy looking for the creature behind us! Not being able find the critter, he ran into another room. Of course for the front speakers I had all that monster cable showing over the door and window frame and up in the corner. So I went to Lowe's and found really neat white plastic triangular sleeves for over the door and along the side of the window and was pleased that all the cables disappeared. The ProMounts have optimized my sound system! I would recommend them for anyone!
Pros:
Optimized my sound system.
Cons:
Speaker direction adjustment is more difficult for those of us with older hands and fingers, so pick the optimum direction when you install.

These are great brackets. It holds my Def 1000s like a champ. Very easy to adjust in any direction. If going into drywall with no stud behind go to the hardware store and buy springload brackets. They will counter the weight behind the wall so the speakers wont rip out the drywall.

All metal construction, mounts solidly to the wall, has good range of adjustment, and is easy to lock down. Replaced ProMount 80's with this mount, which is a much better choice. I use the mount for ProMonitor 1000 speakers (7 lbs).
Pros:

Clean design, well made, and very strong. The design allows the speaker wire to come directly through the bracket for a neat appearance.I mounted the speakers/ProMounts on drywall with 90lb Driller Toggles and on the wood frame surrounding a 42 inch flat screen using black pocket hole screws. Did not use boxes just holes in the wood/wallboard for the wires.

Solid

Written By Chad B, Auburn, CA on Monday, July 18, 2011
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I purchased a set of speaker wall mounts from my local home improvement wearhouse. They were suppose to hold 10lb speakers. Ha! Idon't think so. They sag and feel cheap so I started looking for a better pair at Crutchfield.com. I found the Definitive Technology brand. Seeing how I've been an audiofile for years I know that Definitive Tech products are very good. I bought the Pro Mount 90s. They say they will hold 10lbs like the other brand but they were wrong. The Pro Mount 90s will hold way more. I installed my Polk OWM5s (they way 6lbs) and they are rock solid. Love the strength, looks and adjustability.

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These mounts work great. At first glance, I was not sure that they would support the heavy speakes. But once installed they work as advertised and look very stylish, due to the high gloss cermic material.

They are also very easy to adjust, in regards to the speaker direction.

I broke one of my original Energy wall mounts for my home theater system. I looked on

within 30 minutes of arriving.
Unlike the Energy OEM mounts, the ProMounts were very easy to install.
And unlike the Energy OEM mounts they are ROCK SOLID on the wall!

It would have been nice if there were black covers for the mounting holes or
painted mounting screws. Uniform color of the hardware out of the box would be
more aesthetically pleasing and convenient. However, a little black spray paint
cured all. The mounts function very well.

Best mounts I've seen

Written By Matt S., Atlanta, GA on Friday, September 17, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
I've used other mounts that look similar from the picture, but these exceeded my
expectations. The ball that provide the swivel mount is actually made of a material like a golf
ball, so you don't end up scratching the white paint off of a metal ball. It makes repositioning
very easy (although you HAVE to loosen the set screw). When you tighten the screw (it
comes with the allen wrench for it) it is locked down solid, and the hard rubber ball provides
some vibration absorption for the speaker. I wasn't sure at first, but after seeing it hands-on,
this speaker mount is worth the money.

Great wall-Mount brackets that work with multi-brand speakers

Written By LewisC, Laurel, MD on Sunday, September 12, 2010
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
 
These are great little wall-mount brackets that work not only for DT speakers (i.e., Mythos Gem) but work spot on with Klipsch Icon X Series Bookshelf speakers. They say the max weight for ProMount 90's is 10 lbs. The speakers that I bought to use with these clock in at far less. I am extremely pleased and recommend these whole-heartedly. Crutchfield's excellent shipping and service is second to none.

1 question already asked

I'd like to get 4 of these for ceiling mount application. Are these good mounts to use for them hanging from the ceiling? Anyone doing this? [ Ed  Dec 21, 2013 ]
9 answers
  • I have used these to 'hang' Definitive Technology Pro1000 monitors from the ceiling. I did throw away to mounting screws and went to Home Deopt and purchased a package of self-drilling drywall anchors with 100 lb capacity. A little overkill, but better safe than sorry. [ JAMES   Dec 26, 2013 ]
  • These holders are excellent for ceiling speakers. I used them to hold two light weight Def Tech speakers and two old heavy weight speakers and both has work fine. They are very strong and vary easy to install at the same time. Recom: for heavy weight speakers use slightly divergent drilling for expansions and screws. [ JOSE A   Dec 22, 2013 ]
  • Great, I ordered 4. I'm hanging PM-1000s with these mounts. They're supposed to be speced out for their weight. Thank you for your response. [ Ed   Dec 22, 2013 ]
  • Great, I ordered 4. I'm hanging PM-1000s with these mounts. They're supposed to be speced out for their weight. Thank you for your response. [ Ed   Dec 22, 2013 ]
  • Great mounts. Depends on weight of speakers [ MICHAEL T   Dec 21, 2013 ]
  • Yes, I mounted two speakers inside a Stickey mission oak cabinet. Plenty of angle adjustment. Just make sure you're not too tight in a corner to mount the plate or tighten the ball clamp. [ MICHAEL   Dec 21, 2013 ]
  • Ed, I have two of these mounts mounted on a wall secured to wall studs tilted toward the T.V with the Mythos Gem speakers which weigh about 4.5 pounds. Depending on what speakers you plan on using, I would think they would work very well in a ceiling mount application. [ STANLEY   Dec 21, 2013 ]
  • Yeah, that's my question. Are they a practical application for what I'm trying to use them for? I have no doubt they're sturdy enough, but I'm not sure they will be long enough to allow the articulation. I'm looking for alternative mounts also, so if you know of any others out there, please let me know. Thank you for your response, Christopher. [ Ed   Dec 21, 2013 ]
  • I attached mine to the wall, with that being said they are very sturdy mounts and should have no problems with a ceiling installation through a stud. The only issue may be the articulation possible. [ CHRISTOPHER   Dec 21, 2013 ]
