Sanus SA405 Sound Bar Speaker Mount
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Simple set up. Works great.
The Sanus SA405 lets you mount a sound bar below your wall-mounted flat-panel TV. These brackets fasten directly to your wall mount, and can be adjusted to hold your sound bar snugly against your TV. The SA405 can be used with fixed, swivel, or full-motion mounts. Included spacers ensure your sound bar will be mounted at the proper depth. And because the SA405 mounts connect directly to your wall mount, your sound bar will always remain in the same plane as your TV, no matter how you swivel or tilt it.
Note: The total weight of the TV and sound bar must not exceed the TV mount rating.
I like it. The instructions were easy to follow and this mount was easy to add to my tv.

Average Customer Review(s):
Simple set up. Works great.
I've purchased two of these. They are ideal for mounting a soundbar with the television versus having a separate wall-mount for the soundbar. No extra holes in your wall; much easier to level; the "look" is very appealing; and they minimize the amount of cabling you see between the devices. Lots of extra hardware (including spacers) is included to make it almost certain you won't have to venture to the hardware store to make it work with your television and mount.
Pros: No additional holes in your wall. Easy to level. Aesthetically pleasing.
Cons: Price (
I like it. The instructions were easy to follow and this mount was easy to add to my tv.
Pros: easy to assemble and attach to my tv
Easy to install and simple design. Great build as sanus products are. I think it would hold a little heavier sound bar. Couldn't ask for more. Awesom!
Sound bar mounted to tv without having to drill into new stone fireplace. Awesome
Very easy to install out of the box. Plethora of various bolts and connectors included. Adaptability excellent for any application.
Worked okay for my Samsung Soundbar. Didn't fit well with that sounder. Also hard to level and stay leveled.
My only regret with this product was I didn't buy it when I purchased the Sanus wall mounting bracket. I had to remove my TV from the from the mounting bracket in order to mount the speaker mounting bracket. Once I relented to the provided instructions, the installation went well! Like the wall mounting mechanism, the sound bar mounting bracket uses heavy duty brackets and hardware. There is a lot of hardware provided to accommodate a plethora of different sound bars. I would definitely recommend the Sanus SA405 sound bar speaker mount to anyone!
Worked perfectly mounted up easy
Pros: All hardware to fit any system included
Cons: None known
I was disappointed with the installation and the ability to keep my sound bar level. Once I figured out the right combination it worked out fine.
Pros: Holds mount neatly under the tv.
Cons: Getting the support brackets set right to keep the sound bar level and in place.
Very universal. Solid construction but the knobs for tightening into position can come loose. I recommend locktite. Have zip ties on hand (See attached pics) because they don't include enough hardware for stabilizing the mount bar.
Pros: Solid construction
Cons: Tightening knobs come loose Not enough hardware to stabilize mount bar
Excellent product! Worked perfectly with Klipsch sound bar. Perfect solution in not having to mount soundbar to wall. Great price. Looks fantastic. Very sturdy.
Pros: Price. Product effectiveness.
Cons: Takes 2 people. Directions are so so.
Pros: Easy install
Cons: Lots of extra screws
Worked great with the Klipsch sound bar.
InstallInc sub'd installation to a local TV Sales & Service, Inc in Syracuse, NY to complete our service of TV/sound bar in living room corner elevated mount using the Sanus SA405 Sound Bar Speaker Mount with owner-provided small hutch below for resting Apple TV and Cable TV's DVR. While the installation appeared competent during initial visit, during the follow-up visit to provide further basic orientation to the TV/sound bar and Apple TV setup, we needed an adjustment. When sitting on couch, remote was unable to obtain a line-of-sight with the base of SONY TV with projected Klipsch sound bar obstructing sight. So, installers separated the bottom of the SONY TV attached to the Sanus Classic MMF12b from the top of the Klipsch sound bar attached to the Sanus SA405 Sound Bar Speaker Mount to remedy line of sight issue. The SA405 worked compatibly with the Sanus MMF12b extension mount by separation of Sony TV from the Sound bar to resolve the basic operational issues such as how-to switch from Cable TV mode to Apple TV mode.
Pros: Sanus SA405 is very sturdy in support of sound bar Sanus extension support of sound bar is compatible with Sanus MMF12b Sanus equipment worked flexibly to resolve VERTICAL line of sight issue(s) such as being able to use remote to change from Apple TV to Cable TV operational mode without having to elevate remote above our heads.
Cons: Given the owner's corner space where TV/sound bar was desired by owner, it has limited adjustment capability, according to installer, to allow resolution of different HORIZONTAL line of sight issue(s) such as being able to be viewed from one side of the room by moving the face of the Sound bar/TV to a more perpendicular view
I tried to use this with the Sonos playbar and gave up. I ended up mounting then Playbar on the wall. This mount was not very stable and unqble to get flush with the bottom of the TV.
Cons: Very unstable.Crutchfield response on 5/8/2017 Jason, we're sorry you're disappointed with your mount.

This Sound Bar Speaker Mount worked fine for me to mount the SONY Soundbar. Instructions were clear. All the pieces were easily identifiable. No complaints.
Pros: Easy to assemble
Solid and work great! They are very strong, they hold their position very well do the job I needed them to do.
Pros: rigid, strong metal, lots of hardware options.
Cons: The whole thing is a little shorter than I was hoping, for larger TV's it would be nice it the arms had another 3 or 4 inches to them.
Worked perfectly. Kit had every screw, washer, and nuts you might need for any installation. And the Bose Sound Bar looks and sounds better. Also hides the wires.
Pros: Looks and sounds are perfect
Great value to add a sound bar to an existing mount. I have the Sanus VLF-525 and mounting was very easy. It comes with all the mounting screws, washers, spacers you need. My only quibble is I cannot get the soundbar to be flush up against the TV. There is a half inch gap above the soundbar and below the TV.
Pros: Easy installation Comes with lots of screws and spacers Sturdy
Cons: Half inch gap between TV and soundbar
Perfect for my application. Easy to install and good quality.
Easy install. Great idea but too expensive ....
Pros: Easy to install
This is solidly made and easily to install. It uses friction screws to hald the sound bar in place, so the bar can slip. The Polk bar has controls on top, so it does not wok to try to make the TV and bar flush. I understand this may be typical of many TV-Bar combuinations. The supports are visible behind the bar through the space between TV and bar. Excellent instructions and plenty of parts that fit a variety of TV.s
Pros: Well made, stronge.
Cons: Can not make TV and sound bar flush. Friction to hold in place.
Once you get the TV off the wall bracket, this mount is very easy to install and works well...better to get this done before you mount TV to wall??
Pros: Well made, easy to work with, durable
Good product. Easy to assemble and install. Good directions and packaging. Two stars taken away because of the sound bar attachment. It's so wobbly that I finally decided to mount the bar directly on the wall. They work, but if you want a solid feeling installation, don't go for the sound bar attachment
Pros: Easy to assemble. Good directions and packaging. Solid mount.
Cons: Sound bar attachment really wobbly. Unusable if you're fussy about such things.
This Sanus sounder speaker mount is a great idea and will probably work fine for a wall-mounted TV that does not move. I, however, have a TV on a swivel mount that we will move based on where we are sitting/standing in our kitchen/sitting room. Any movement causes the speaker to move and torque about (front/back, twist left/right, turn clockwise/counterclockwise), so it is easily moved out of alignment, like a picture on a wall bumped by a child. It is only moderately difficult to set up: remove the TV off the wall, remove the wall mount, attach the Sanus speaker bar mount between the two with whichever of many nuts and bolts are provided, remount it all then adjust the speaker with some tweaking.
Cons: Lacks sufficient sturdiness, moderately difficult to mount and adjust.
Almost works. I have had to add extra bracing for it to hold the sound bar in place.
Not a universal mount. Cannot be mounted on certain wall mounts like the Sanus VFL410. Made some modifications with longer bolts, nuts, and washers.
Pros: Solid construction
Cons: Over priced.
Very easy to install. Very flexible setup. Doesn't hold a heavy sound bar in place very well.
Pros: Very easy to use
Cons: Not built to hold heavy sound bars. Really have to "crank" on the screws to get it to hold soundbar where you want it.
Used this bracket set for multiple installs and my clients and I couldn't be happier. I'm very picky on easy to install products as it saves me time and this is one of those products. Does what I need it to and is easy to install.
Pros: Fairly Priced. Easy To Install.
Easy to install and it fit and works great
Pros: very user friendly product

It was recommended when I added the soundbar to my cart, and I had never seen the product before. I already have a Sanus mount (purchased at Crutchfield), so it looks like it is compatible. I was going to mound the soundbar below the TV anyways, but was concerned about how the wiring would look with the wall mount. I think this will keep the mount off the wall a little, and directly under the TV so that wires can be hidden and not have to go inside the wall. [ Alex Feb 23, 2018 ]

I wanted to mount my soundbar to my full motion Sanus mount and this is the best option for me. [ Jason Dec 04, 2015 ]
Interesting concept. I have 3 mounted below tv. Never considered a top mount. Now I'm wondering why not. Do you always color outside the lines? I don't see why it would not work. There is plenty of adjustability with the mount, and lots of hardware options provided. You will end up with extra screws. Try it and report back. Curious minds want to know. [ James Nov 23, 2017 ]
I've only mounted underneath, but I think it would be too unstable for putting the weight above the mounts. They stayed moveable even after I tightened them down. [ Clinton Lee Nov 22, 2017 ]
Sorry I did not...probably have to play well th it and rig a few parts yourself [ DONALD J Nov 22, 2017 ]
I mounted my sound bar beneath my TV as suggested in the instructions. I think that the bracket would struggle to hold the weight of the sound bar above the TV.You might be able to make this work without the bracket by connecting the speaker directly to the wall with some sort of hardware . [ Eric Nov 22, 2017 ]
Yes.......had to remove the TV but other then that it works fine. [ Jerry Apr 21, 2017 ]
Yes. It installs very easily and looks great. [ James Apr 20, 2017 ]
I am using it with a Sonos Playbar and it works great. The bracket is rated for a higher weight than a Sonos playbar. [ Jason Dec 22, 2015 ]
Your have to buy Sonos Wall kit also then it works [ MICHAEL Dec 22, 2015 ]
I don't see why not [ Mark Nov 26, 2015 ]
They are quite flexible in there application, but I'm not sure what they can support laterelly. We mounted a sound bar and only needed part of the bracket. [ Jon Nov 25, 2015 ]
