4 questions already asked

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 ]
My speakers are 7 3/4 inches high and there's 2 1/2 clearance between them and the ceiling. [ Alan  Jun 21, 2018 ]
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 ]
Wouldn't that depend on where the mounting hole was? [ Dennis  Jun 19, 2018 ]
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 [ Thomas  Jun 19, 2018 ]
2 mounts per package. [ Robin  Dec 19, 2016 ]

I BOUGHT CAMBRIDGE SPEAKERS, THAT ARE ABOUT THE SAME PRICE WITH SONONS CEILING BRACKETS, SO I CANT ANSWER THE QUESTION [ DENNIS  Nov 25, 2015 ]
These are wired speakers. If SONOS is a wireless system, it won't work with these speakers. [ Aaron  Nov 25, 2015 ]
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. [ JEFFREY D  Aug 03, 2014 ]
The Sanus WMS3 were easy to install and mount the speakers on [ ARTHUR  Aug 02, 2014 ]
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. [ Greg  Aug 01, 2014 ]  Staff
