Speaker wall mounts: Anyone have any experience with these

Anyone ever use these Audio Basics mounts? How do they even hook up to the speakers? Do they work with all speakers?


How about these? They seem to be the ones that fit my system...


Advice appreciated...

I have never used anything like this.

Generally to attach them to the speaker will require you to drill/screw into the speaker.

I figured that but the first set seem to just have a single hole for drilling, regardless of the speaker. They look kinda bunky. I should probably just go with the official Sony mounts...

If you need to use them then yes I would go with the ones that are designed for your speakers.

Re: Speaker wall mounts: Anyone have any experience with these

I just made some myself out of two wall brackets, four screws and a cut-to-size piece of compressed board stuff (technical term it's not. It's basically a very sturdy cork board type of stuff. Very easy to cut, and sturdy as hell). That way, the speakers just rest on their own mini shelves. cost about $6 for a pair, and the footprint on my speakers (a pair of Polk R10) isn't REAL small.

I've used these speaker mounts from Best Buy with Sony speakers.

I think they work well. They come with a mount that you screw into the threads on the back of the speaker.

I love this town! I looked up local retailers on the Sony website, found one literally across the street from my office and just bought the brackets for $10 less than Sony sells them for. Now I'm happy.
