Our take on the Sanus WMS3

Mount your compact satellite speakers on the wall or ceiling with these handy brackets from Sanus. They feature three locking, ridged joints that allow you to precisely aim your speakers towards your listening area. The WMS3 brackets are also weather-resistant, making them perfect for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Fits together very well. Adapts to all possibilities that you could use it to install your speakers.

Its durable nylon construction features three locking ridged joints that allow perfect speaker positioning while maximizing strength and stability.

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.
