Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I had different product like these that broke on me. Decided to go with these instead. They are very well made and easy to install. Although a little pricey, it was worth it. I have four high end speakers I've hung from the ceiling. They come with caps over the adjusting screws, so they look nice and streamlined. Highly recommend these for ceiling or wall mount.....

Pros: Easy to mount, looks nice, comes with variety of screws for different speakers.

Cons: Price is a little high

Sturdy Mounts

Andrew from Center Valley, PA on 12/30/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very flexible/universal set of mounts. Used them as a pair to mount a Definitive Technology ProCenter 1000 center channel speaker. Did not the ceiling mount extensions due to the size/shape of the speaker. Plenty of different mounting options included in the box. I cut and mounted 2x4 blocks above mounting location for secure mounting. If you are mounting small/light satellite speakers drywall anchors may be okay, but i would definitely recommend hitting wood if possible! Great Mounts for a Reasonable Price - Definitely Recommend!

Pros: Sturdy, Flexible Application, Universal, Clean Design, Included Hardware, Sold as Pair

Cons:

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The mounts were straight forward to assemble and attach to the wall. However, the insert into the speakers (Definite technology ProMonitor series) is just a bit too large in diameter. Therefore, I had to take off a little of its outer diameter with a file.

Pros: Easy to assemble; versatile; work on ceiling and wall

Cons: Mount to speaker (Definitive Technology ProMonitor series) a bit too large.in diameter.

Waste of Money

SeattleJo from Seattle, WA on 10/9/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

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.

Garbage

RDSWY4 from WY on 4/22/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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

BruceH from Naperville, IL on 3/5/2012

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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

bobw from Fort Lauderdale, FL on 5/25/2011

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (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.

Impressive!

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!!

Q
Does this mount support Sonos Play1?
[ Stephen  Sep 08, 2018 ]

A
I'm sorry, but I don't know. It was suggested that I used them for a Martin Logan speaker but truthfully it wasn't a very good fit. I really didn't like the construct of the mount. Although it had plenty of options and was small I don't feel it was made well, or that strong. I also had problems with adjusting the bracket. I hope this helps.

how big (dimensions) can a speaker be and still work with this without touching the ceiling?
[ L  Jun 17, 2018 ]
5 answers
A
For our own aesthetic reasons, we chose not to use these speaker mounts, we used the built-in bracket and screw on the speaker The product seemed excellent. It's adjustable and I believe could handle a 12" speaker. Hope this helps.
[ Stephen  Jun 21, 2018 ]
A
My speakers are 7 3/4 inches high and there's 2 1/2 clearance between them and the ceiling.
[ Alan  Jun 21, 2018 ]
A
Sorry, I can't answer this question because I have used the mounts to place all my speakers at the walls.
[ Eberhard  Jun 19, 2018 ]
A
Wouldn't that depend on where the mounting hole was?
[ Dennis  Jun 19, 2018 ]
A
As a point of reference, I used them for a set of Def Audio Pro Cinema 600 speakers and was able to mount the bracket to the ceiling without any of the speakers touching the ceiling

Q
Hey, i have recently purchased a set of pinpoint mounts and a no name pair, but they both said that they were Samsung compatible but neither of the fit. The keyhole set up screws are to big and don't fit in the keyhole that are on the back of the speakers. And the other mounts screws are either to big, to small, or the brackets holes don't line up. Can you please suggest a mount set that is compatible with the Samsung ht-hm55 speakers?
[ jake hotchkin  Jul 30, 2014 ]

The mounts worked well with the Polk Audio OWM3 as a wall mount allowing flexibility to point towards the sweet spot in my room as surround speakers.

The Sanus WMS3 were easy to install and mount the speakers on
[ ARTHUR  Aug 02, 2014 ]
A
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: Since we do not carry the HT HM55 it is difficult to say which would be a perfect match, but based on the info I found online the AM40 should work fine. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat.
