    Good but not great

    After opening the box, I didn't expect much. Especially because Best Buy sold these clearly used/open box as NEW. The previous owners didn't have much luck it seems, and I just about returned them. But since they were already open, I thought I'd give it a try. I used these on some Polk RM650 satellite speakers - they are a little over 5 lbs. Once I hooked everything up and tightened all screws, they are pretty secure. Not bad at all. I would have a hard time finding a local store with small mounts such as these so I decided to keep these. I do wish I could adjust them at more of an angle than these allow, and I also wish the plastic was of better quality. Overall, I do recommend them if they are cheap or on sale.

    Great Wall mounts for light bookshelf speakers

    Used these to mount 2 pairs of Dayton B652 Bookshelf speakers. Mine are slightly modified, so they each weigh about about 6.5lbs. The cabinets are 7" deep with the upgraded binding posts I installed in them. These mounts can easily hold them at a 25-30° down angle. I would strictly adhere to the 8lb load capacity--even with upraded mounting hardware. I would also only stud mount these. Mounting in drywall only could be achieved with toggle bolt anchors, but I did not want to risk it as these are made of plastic and, aptly, deform when compressed or strained. The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 stars is the included mounting hardware is pretty cheap and one of the aluminum screw heads stripped on the 3rd speaker I mounted. I removed turned the stripped screw with pliers and replaced the remaining anchor screws with stainless steel drywall anchors and added washers purchased from a local hardware store. The mounts themselves are great and unobrusive, but no matter what mount you purchase always budget for upgraded mounting hardware.

    Picked up two sets of these recently to mount my surround and surround back speakers on the wall. For the price they definitely do their job and are able to support my klipsch reference speakers in the exact position I wanted them to be in. Another reviewer mentioned no instructions came with the set. That is false. They do come with instructions (maybe theirs were open box?). They are plastic but are solid and provide a clean mounted look. If you are looking for a speaker mount set that provides various configurations and don’t want to spend a lot for them, give these a try.

    I wanted to upgrade my home theater to be an Atmos theater setup so I first investigated in-ceiling speakers but they were too much work and would cause me to have 6" holes in my ceiling. That would be a hassle if I wanted to move. Luckily, I found these and they work great. They hold my Atmos speakers (~5-7 lbs). I only have two negatives to say about them though. First, I wish they would include grommets to make the small drill hole in my ceiling look more professional. Second, the angle adjustability is not very smooth. There are only preset angles to adjust the speaker to. Think of it like only being able to set the hour hand of a clock to where the numerals are, and nowhere in- between. Other than that, I am happy with the purchase and would recommend to anyone looking for a cheap alternative to in-ceiling speakers.

    I did a lot of on line researching and didnt want to spend a ton of money for wall mounts, These seemed reasonably priced and looked to have some quality to them-- They were after a while of tinkering with easy to install onto the wall for the first part, then my 7 pound Polk audio T 15 speakers were little more challeging holding it and mounting it to the wall mount but I did it and by myself, a second person holding would have been a bit easier, my speaker were the key hole type connection and it worked fine I do have parts left over for other types of mounting they have been hanging for about 5 days now look good and no slipping or crashing to the floor... the instructions that come with are very basic and dont help a whole lot.. but you will figure it out- if I did.

    Not For SONOS

    If you’re purchasing this for a SONOS Play 1 or Play One Do Not do it. Essentially the Play One there is no way to attach it to the speaker. However the Play 1 there is a spot for a screw. But the screws that came with this product do not seem to go in all the way. I’m giving the product it self 4 stars cause it really isn’t bad. Just do your research before purchasing if you’re trying to hang a SONOS speaker. I typed SONOS Speaker Mount into search bar at Best Buy and this popped up I should have done more research. Don’t be like me.

    So 4 stars for two reasons 1. The speakers sit way out from the wall. This means you can see the mount and wires easily. 2. While the mounts look like you can put the speakers at any angle, you can't. This is the first time I've used somthing like this. I typically use stands but my house is pre-wired and up high(fine if you angle the speakrs towards the audience).I thought these would be better than running wires and using stands. I'm happy with the install and looks. They give you a variety of screws and I was able to get my speakers mounted. For the price, availability, and ease of installation I would recommend them if you are mounting at the proper height.

    I read a few reviews on these and people complained that they broke, or wasn't very adjustable. I found them to be very adjustable and they look pretty good. As far as strength...I'm not sure, I have the rear speakers mounted on them that came with the Vizio 5.1 sound bar system and they are perfect for those. Of course they don't weigh much. I would say if you have lightweight speakers that could be mounted instead of sitting on a shelf or something, these would be fine. I'll attach pics to show the flexibility of these mounts.

    The brackets are nice quality and are adjustable to almost any direction or angle depending on which bracket in the box you use. The only reason I didnt give it 5 stars is because of the cover caps that you use to hide the wall screws are really cheap feeling and dont seat well once it is hung on the wall. It isnt terrible but they dont fit all the way in so the bracket base isnt flush everywhere on the visible side, the some places where screws go have a small gap around the cap. It isnt on all of them but enough that i feel it is a poor design of the cover caps.

    Good wall mounts

    These are pretty good wallmounts. Easy to install, look fine, my only complaint is that the minimum length they stick out can be pretty far. If you are mounting on the ceiling, this is not an issue because you can angle them towards your seating location. I didn't want to run the speaker cords in the wall all the way up and down, so I put my FR and FL speakers on the outside of my TV. The mounts stick out about 6", and this is before your speakers get taken into account. i wish there was a "small" adapter neck piece. Other than that, these work just fine. So, if you are installing them on the ceiling, great, if on the wall sticking out, maybe not so much.

    This product is good. Yes plasticky pieces that you don’t want to crank down too hard when screwing. I used these for two of my Polk T15s to be my rear elevated speakers for Dolby Atmos (5.2.2 setup from 7.2 previously). Worked fine, provided the mount is put DIRECTLY into a stud. I tried to use these to also turn my rear left and right toward center but, at 7 lbs, did not hold well enough to call securely. Got separate brackets for rear left and right speakers and am happy I did.

    This mount package is a quality product for about half the cost of the Magnolia selection at best buy. It actually provides 2x5 mounts. First set for mounting straight on the wall and the other with the ability to have an angle mount. It comes with screws both for attaching to wall (including anchors) and 1/4" 20 screws for attaching to speakers. These also come in two lengths to accommodate different depths for the speakers you have. The ball mount sets, which comes at a higher price will provide a more flush mount and more flexibility on angle, but if that is not extremely important to you, I would get these.

    I got these to complete a 7.1 surround installation in my den. The instructions are thorough. The design allows for multiple configurations, to match many common small format speaker models. The only problem I have with them is that they add about 3 inches of clearance between the wall and the speaker, I really needed something that was more of a surface or flush mount, but these will suffice.

    These Rocketfish speaker mounts are an excellent entry level mount for small speakers. I used them for my rear Sony surrounds to my 7.1 system. The set came with different brackets and adapters to fit a plethora of speaker brands. I was a little worried about the mounts being plastic, however they have held up very well over the past few months. They do stick out from the wall slightly, but if placed near a corner you won't notice. Tilting works as well, however your options are limited to certain angles. I would definitely buy another pair for the price.

    Not a complaint, but more of a suggestion. These should be able to be mounted in a way that you can place them with a true 90 degree positioning point... unfortunately that is not an option with these. The closest that you can get is probably more of an 80 degree placement. It creates an opportunity when placing them onto a wall for placement when you have a seating situation with say a sectional that sits on a wall and the speakers are mounted on the same wall..

    I used these to mount speakers on the ceiling. The mounts have a nice and clean look thanks to black tabs that cover the screws. They were quite easy to mount and adjust. I did most adjustments before I installed them on the ceiling. Some of the adjustment nuts were too tight. But I am generally very happy with the purchase. Definitely better than a set I bought elsewhere that had parts missing. I would open the set and account for all parts prior to beginning the installation.

    Rocketfish was the only brand I had to choose from at best buy. Either 2 or 4 speaker mounts. I only needed the 2. The mounts give you plenty of options to position the speakers. The screws did not fit the LG brand I bought from BB so I had to modify a way to connect. The mounts make the speaker stick out from the wall too far, can't get it tight to the wall for a cleaner look.

    Didn't actually use these because I changed my speaker selection to in-wall at the last minute, but I did have time to throroughly examine them out of the box. They are plastic but the critical points are well reinforced and adjustment is very easy and holds securely. Could be a tad shorter or include an intermediate length strut for use with smaller speakers to hug the wall more closely, but overall a good length for a large variety of speakers.

    These work for what they do, and the price seems OK. Easy to install. The only negative for me is that they don't have a "short" mounting option. You have the tilting elbow, an extension piece, but no "short" piece. I had my front speakers facing directly out, and I had to straighten the elbow to do so. So basically, my speakers are about 8" off the wall (TV is about 4"), so it just looks weird. Other than that, easy and does what it needs to do.

    I used these mounts to hang Polk S-15 middle surround speakers. It took some trial and error to get them right. The instructions could be more concise. They have good leveling adjustments. My speakers weigh 13 lbs. I would not recommend for speakers heavier than 15 lbs. I like them because the mount is only visible from the sides.
