Perfect match for great soeakers
Pros: Matches the speakers
Worked perfectly. Not a lot of adjustability, but just enough for me and my needs. Like all products from crutchfield, seems very well built.
This mount is made specifically for this speaker. For that reason I took away a star since they should have designed it with greater clearance for adjustability. You really only have 15 to 20 degrees of angle before the mount blocks the speaker. For this reason you should put it in the mount and try and position it before deciding on the final location of the mount. As others mentioned there are no supplied mounting screws. Inexcusable for the high price of the mount and low cost of 8 screws.
Pros: Perfect fit for the speaker, easy to use.
Cons: Poor design limits speaker angle No mounting screws
these are perfect.
enables professional looking "self" installation. provides flexible speaker positioning.
Pros: easy installation and flexible speaker positioning
I was looking into changing my rear sorround speakers that were in stands to wall mounts to have more space in the room. I found these wall mounts and looked at the reviews from other people. They were easy to install and can move them up and down and sideways. I was going to purchase the speakers that would apply to the wall mounts. However, the only available was black. I was able to find the white speakers thru another supplier.
Pros: Easy to Install
Cons: None at this time.
Nice wall mounts for the Minx satellites.
Pros: inconspicuous. secure. easy to mount with supplied allen wrench.
Cons: does not tilt, only pans.
Simple to install on the wall. Need a drill and wall anchors. Goes up in minutes. Inexpensive.
Pros: Inexpensive home theater sound.
Cons: Plastic color is a shade off the color of the speaker body. Not noticeable.
Great product. Great support for speaker. Great price point. A++++++
Mounts are sturdy, and the movement is quite natural. Once they become loose you can just tighten it up with the supplied allen wrench. Too bad they didn't even include mounting screws! Cambridge has high-priced products and can't even provide their customers with 8 measly screws for such pricey mounts. Not sure why there are two square-shaped holes for the wire to go through, when you can't really separate the black and red wires behind the wall...
Expensive little dudes. They are not particularly flexible. The limited extension from the mounting surface limits the amount of adjustment. In certain configurations, it is very difficult to use the Allen wrench to tighten. A ball and joint connection with a thumb screw compression would work much better.
Pros: Look nice
Cons: Cost way too much.
This wall mount for the minx satellites works perfect. You can get it at just about any angle and the speaker stays. It comes with a supplied hex wrench that you can use to tighten the 2 hex bolts at just about any weird angle too. I have no regrets getting this.
Pros: Very easy to use and has many angles/directions.
Cons: Kinda expensive.
If you want a high quality wall mount, and are tired of the cheap, easily breakable type that don't hold position, this is the one for you. Works perfectly as you would expect, since it is designed and made for the Minx speakers. Great fit/function, if you want to wall mount your speakers, this is it. Low profile, just enough room to allow easy positioning of the speaker in the direction you need, and allow for speaker cable connection to the terminals.
Pros: Quality, fit, function
Cons: None I've discovered
These mounts are well constructed and swivel side to side and up and down (although with limited range). Surprisingly, no mounting hardware is included. Seems like it would be cheap to include screws which would fit the countersunk holes in the mounts. It's annoying that I had to buy them separately.
Pros: solid build, easy to attach
Cons: lack of hardware an annoying omission
Angle Adjustment: The Cambridge Audio 400M pivoting wall-mount lets you swivel your mounted Minx satellite speaker 45-degrees (left or right), as well as tilt the mounted satellite speaker 45-degrees (up or down).
Note: A hex-key is provided to lock the desired position of the speaker bracket in place.
Installation: The Cambridge Audio 400M pivoting wall-mount attaches to the Cambridge Audio Minx satellite speaker's rear-mounted threaded insert, using the M6 machine screw that came with the satellite speaker. The 400M wall-mount bracket features four screw-holes to mount the bracket against your wall (mounting screws not supplied).

Quality, compact and reviews. [ Samuel Stevenson Jan 27, 2018 ]
They seemed to be the right choice for my living room. [ Dean Jan 17, 2018 ]
Needed low profile wall mount for Energy 5.1 speakers [ Michael Dec 31, 2017 ]
I have 3 of these speakers now and needed one more, so I can use 2 speakers as front preference speakers with my Yamaha RVX 681 amp. I'm using a Bose VCS 10 speaker for my center speaker. These 5 speakers along with my Cambridge Audio Minx X201 Sub will give me a really nice setup. By the way thanks for the price break, I have ordered in the past with Crutchfield and been very satisfied Thanks [ Bryan MacLeod Nov 25, 2017 ]
small footprint [ Larry Aug 21, 2017 ]
Small size, good reviews. [ Daniel May 12, 2017 ]
I needed to add some height/"ceiling" speakers to complete an Atmos/DTS:X setup, and this pair worked perfectly for my needs, at a great price. [ jor-el Jan 07, 2017 ]
After researching the web I decided to try this product for the new speakers [ Michael Jun 01, 2016 ]
Because I purchased the Cambridge minx speaker system. Excellent customer service. [ craig Dec 28, 2015 ]
They are a great compliment for a fabulous par of speakers that allows to adjust the placement of the speakers to match the room. [ Ricardo Mar 13, 2018 ]
The swivel design in both azimuth and elevation, allow precise adjustments of the sound field. Crutchfield carries the best audio components available. [ Joseph Sep 30, 2017 ]
Did not order this... [ SUE Jun 10, 2017 ]
compatible with my speakers. small. white. [ Jim Apr 14, 2017 ]
Great mounting solution [ Alexander Jan 12, 2017 ]
Looking to replace my floor standing speakers. They come highly recommended by your staff. [ Brian Jul 24, 2016 ]
to hang it to the wall with my Cambridge audo minx min 12 [ Romeo Lorenzo Jun 05, 2016 ]
The brackets will help me to properly mount the speakers on the wall. [ ANTHONY JH May 23, 2016 ]
Great products. Great service. [ Frank Dec 26, 2015 ]
(1) Recommended by Crutchfield Product Expert, Andy; (2) Price/performance looked promising; (3) Less commitment and risk by me for installation (i.e., wall mount installation). [ Richard Dec 07, 2015 ]
Yes, not a problem at all. The only potential issue you may have is limited mvt for your desired direction. It really depends how much directional mvt you want. I just mounted them on my ceiling and didn't have a problem with attaching or direction. Hope this helps [ ROBERT P Mar 14, 2018 ]
I guess you can if that's your only option. Looking at my ceiling I think you can mount them at the corners of the room if you have crown moldings in place. [ Samuel Stevenson Mar 14, 2018 ]
I don't think these mounts will tilt enough (90 degrees or more) to allow that mounting. You should consider alternate mounts. [ JASON Mar 14, 2018 ]
Yes [ Tom Mar 14, 2018 ]
You can, but it may not give the angle you desire with the stock mounts. Maybe consider an in ceiling speaker? [ Richard Mar 14, 2018 ]
Unless you want to point them downward, no. The angle of these mounts is limited, you definitely won't get anywhere near a 90 degree mount-from-the-ceiling-but-point-forward angle. Look for another mount that uses the proper bolt (I believe the speakers use a 6mm thread). [ Ingo Mar 14, 2018 ]
You could conceivable do this, but the wall mounts are only designed to tilt horizontally OR vertically, not both. And unless I'm mistaken, in order to accomplish a vertical tilt, you would have to attach the speakers on their sides (speakers are square, so that's fine, but the lettering would be vertical instead of horizontal). [ Horst Aug 31, 2015 ]
Yes, the mounts are dual axis so they have full adjustment up and down as well as side to side. [ Glenn Aug 31, 2015 ]
yes [ RYAN Aug 31, 2015 ]
Yes - I have a pair mounted 10ft high and set at a downward angle [ BRIAN D Aug 30, 2015 ]
Yes it can [ STEVEN Aug 30, 2015 ]
I would say yes, depending on how you orient the mount itself [ Robert Aug 30, 2015 ]
I did not buy the Min 12 speakers but instead bought the Min 21 speakers. I did, however, buy the wall mounts which are very flexible for both Horizontal and Vertical adjustments. I highly recommend them. [ Jeff Aug 30, 2015 ]
Yes it does allow you to move on a vertical and horizontal axis! Great speakers and great wall mount! [ HEATHER Aug 30, 2015 ]
Yes. They can work on both axes. Keep in mind though that the vertical axis is limited by the size of the speaker and the cable posts. [ Eric Aug 30, 2015 ]
You will not be able to mount them parallel to the floor using just the bracket. You would have to mount a small wood block to create enough space to mount them parallel. I would estimate the most angle you can get out of the brackets is 45 degrees. I think you can find a way to easily adapt them. I would be worth it. They are great speakers. I hope that helps. [ ADRIAN Jun 01, 2014 ]
If you point the bracket down you will not be able to point the speaker parallel to the ground. Not enough range for the bracket [ JOHN May 30, 2014 ]
I don't think so. I believe they just rotate 45° [ Carlos May 30, 2014 ]
You cannot... [ TRADD May 30, 2014 ]
You can not... [ TRADD May 30, 2014 ]
If you mount these on the underside of a shelf with the speakers pointing to the floor, or straight out from the bracket, the speakers would need to rotate 90 degrees in order to be parrallel with the shelf and floor. These brackets rotate 45 degrees in any direction, but not 90 degrees. [ DALE May 30, 2014 ]
I have the white versions of these and if I am understanding you correctly, no, you cannot mount them to the underside and rotate the speakers so much that they project parallel to the floor. [ CHARLIE May 30, 2014 ]
Unfortunately, no. If you install this mount on the underside of a shelf, the best you could do is about a 45 degree angle. These are great little speakers but I don't think you'll be satisfied with that install. darin [ DARIN May 30, 2014 ]
David, I purchased these in December and love them. Great sound quality and look great. To answer your question...I am sorry to say that there is not enough room to mount the standard wall mount bracket under a shelf and rotate speaker 90 degrees so that it is parallel to the floor. There is a bookshelf stand that I have my center channel speaker on. If you were to purchase this and have a couple of holes drilled into the base and screw this essentially upside down on the under side of the book shelf you would be able to mount the speaker so that it is parallel to the ground and would look great. Hope that helps. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. [ JOHN A May 30, 2014 ]
If I understand your question correctly, and I think I do, I do not believe the mounts will accommodate that setup. However, you could get creative. If you mount a block of wood vertical and perpendicular to the shelf, you could then mount to the newly attached block?? Think that would work? Good luck! On a side note, my speakers sound great! [ JOHN May 30, 2014 ]
If memory serves me correctly they came with mounting screws. [ PHILIP A Jul 28, 2016 ]
Hello Bryan, unfortunately they do not come with screws. You gave to provide your own. [ Rolando Jul 27, 2016 ]
Yes [ Rajeev Jul 27, 2016 ]
I think there were screws but I don't think it had drywall anchors... But I might be wrong. [ Farmer Andy Jul 27, 2016 ]
Yes [ Brian Jul 27, 2016 ]
No. I found a #8 screw, round head, Philips worked just right. I used 3/4" to go into wood. Might need longer if going into drywall. [ Andrew Jul 27, 2016 ]
