    Cheap - Do Not Waste Your Money

    I purchased these at Best Buy. Apparently Best Buy is the only company selling these, and I'm beginning to see why. They're made of cheap plastic, and Rocketfish doesn't stand behind their product. I tried to attach one of my speakers to one of the arms. The Allen screw never tightened down the speaker, allowing me to turn the speaker. I kept trying to tighten the speaker. Eventually the Allen screw turned real easy, and the speaker fell out of the arm. When I looked at the piece that attaches to the back of the speaker, I noticed the Allen screw had gone completely through the plastic. Mind you, I wasn't torquing the screw. To remove the screw, I had to move the plastic out of the way, and that's when I discovered how flimsy the plastic was. I sent an email to Rocketfish support and was told to call in, which I did. The woman I spoke to was absolutely clueless. After telling her everything I had previously put in my email, which she had in front of her, she transferred me to a company that helps people install Rocketfish TV wall mounts. They don't deal with speaker mounts. I called the Rocketfish back and asked to speak to a supervisor. Instead, the next lay I spoke to transferred me to their parts department. When I spoke to the parts department, the woman asked if I had a service contract. Really! A service contract on a $25 product. She told me to contact Best Buy for help. Best Buy might want to rethink carrying this product. I should have ordered the Definitive Technology speaker mounts on Amazon instead.

    They Work Perfectly (w/ a Slight Modification)

    Posted

    I really can't say enough good about this kit. I used it to mount an older set of Infinity TSS-450 speakers to the ceiling in my basement. My only complaint (if you can call it that) is the arms that adjust don't go a full 90 degrees. Probably not a big deal for most folks but in my setup, mounting them from the roof meant the L and R front speakers were pointed more towards the floor than where I wanted. I solved this by taking the arms apart and using a chisel to gently shave off the point that was getting in the way. Hard to tell what I mean by the pictures but when you go to adjust them you'll see what I'm talking about. I only took off about an 1/8" and it's very easy to do, taking all of 5 minutes to do both. But this allowed more articulation and I was able to point the speakers exactly where I wanted. They've been up for about 2 weeks and everything is holding in place right where I put them. But my favorite thing about this kit is the fact that it also allowed me to mount my center speaker as well -- something I never thought was possible. As I mentioned, the TSS-450 is old... a good 15 years old and the center speaker was meant to sit on a shelf or on top of a TV that wasn't flat, so there's no 1/4" 20 thread hole on the back. But what the center speaker DOES have is an adjustable rear foot, allowing it to go up or down. So just for giggles, I unscrewed that all the way out ... and one of the screws in the mounting kit fit!! I had to use an extension to get the clearance I needed but so what. That's what they're there for, right? All in all, this is a great kit with tons of options for any scenario. I highly recommend. Also, check to see if there's an Open Box available. It's 10 bucks cheaper for the exact same thing. : )

    Poor quality and does not work as advertised.

    ChrisLB

    I have multiple issues with this product: 1. The speaker mounts are advertised to hold speakers up to 8 pounds. The speaker mounts are bending under the weight of my speakers that are about 6 pounds. The weight of my speakers was verified with the manufacturer and double checked on a postal scale. 2. Two of the Five mounts had the threads strip when I was using my fingers and the supplied wrench to tighten the mounting screws. This is due to the low quality plastic used in the mounts. 3. Most of the parts are of a poor quality plastic. I highly doubt that they could safely hold an 8 pound speaker if the mounts are bending under the weight of a 6 pound speaker. 4. Considering the cheap plastic used in this kit, the kit should be $30, not $50. The materials are of similar quality to the cheap speaker mount kits that sell for about $30 on other web sites. 5. After getting the first 2 speakers mounted, I had trouble aiming them where I wanted them to be pointed due to the speaker mounts flexing. 6. I'm considering returning this product. However, I now have the mounting holes drilled into my wall and will need to find other speaker mounts that will cover the holes. Unless you have very small and light speakers, I wouldn't recommend this product.

    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.

    I bought these because they appeared to be very well constructed and they they would be perfect. In the end they were just ok. They are getting the job done but they were not quite the right size here an there. They include several connection options to fasten to your speakers but each was slightly not right,. the arm for the mount would not mount at a 90 degree angle like I needed for my installation,. I was able to swap parts from arm to arm and get the 90 angle I needed but then I learned that the notches where not meant to be interchanged. I was able to tighten it down enough so it would not move too bad, also gravity helps in my configuration. Next issue, while trying to configure it I had to bolt it together several times. once I decided how I wanted it, as I tightened the bolt it started to feel soft. I thought the threads we metal but I think some are plastic. The plastic threads did not hold up well. Once I knew how I wanted them configured the rest of the install went well. I would recommend but with some reservations.

    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.

    Good Budget Mounts

    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.

    Gets the Job Done but be WARNED!

    Let me stary by saying this, I would reccomend these speaker mounts. They get the job done and once your speakers are up, hopefully you don't have to adjust them much. The allan wrench adjustments are a bit inconvenient when on a ladder and trying to adjust. But the biggest setback about these mounts is that the screws they send you are TERRIBLE! Please heed my warning! I went to screw the base that goes to the speaker into my speaker and the screw they give you just broke off like butter in my speaker! Resulting in me taking my sound bar back to the nearest Best Buy that had the same sound bar which was 40 miles away by the way. All because some stupid little screw got stuck in my speaker! So frustrating. So please, be careful when screwing in you speakers. Do not use a drill when screwing into the speakers and go very slow. Overall the mounts work fine, I just had a bad experience and would like to caution others who buy this product.

    Does the Job but cheap plastic

    The wall mounts do their job and I would say they do their job very well. My only complaint is that the locking screw that connects the wall bracket to the speaker simply tightened right through the cheap plastic. I was simply turning it with no resistance whatsoever and the screw went through the other side. I have included pictures. I am a little disappointed at the cheap quality, but since I already had the brackets on the wall and was able to make it work I decided to deal with it. I would still recommend the wall brackets with that caveat to be careful about the cheap plastic. For a higher end system though you may want to look at something more expensive.

    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.

    Wouldn't mount small speakers without them

    These little guys are AWESOME. I used them to mount Definitive Technology - ProCinema 600 5.1-Channel Home Theater Speaker System, and these worked perfectly. The feel light which made me a little suspect, but they are quite strong. There are 2 different ways to mount the speakers depending on the types of speakers, mine had both the button hole and the screw in option, and I used both. Both are very secure. this also comes with a set of extensions that can be used to set the speakers further out from the wall or further down from the ceiling. Extension adds about 3 inches.One Note, do not over tighten the screws that hold the plastic speaker parts together. They are plastic as well and you can strip them, once you feel it tightening down, stop turning it will hold fine.

    Mounts were easy to install and allow multiple adjustment angles to get just the right angle for perfect surround sound. Installation screws and adjustment screws are all hidden so the don't look clunky. Caps were easy to remove, i.e., no screw driver required so no raised edges from prying them up, and snap back in nicely. Comes with Allen wrench for screws to adjust brackets. Have been in place for about 2 months holding up Polk surround speakers (RM2300, which sound great, also recommend Polk products) and haven't slipped or required adjustment or tightening.

    Sadly I was not impressed with these mounts. The material feels like cheap plastic and had a generic form that didn't fit very well with the Sonos speakers I bought. They seem to hold the speaker up but we had to get some rubber washers from a local hardware store to get them to be a little more secure. And for what they cost, I expected a lot more. The only reason I gave them two stars is because they seem to be working fine so far. I would honestly not recommend these to anyone with the Sonos - PLAY:1 Wireless Speaker.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Bracket not sturdy enough to support speaker

    I bought this bracket for my Klipsch 5 speaker system. The bracket once installed to drywall with screw anchor is not sturdy enough to support weight each speaker. The issue is worse for the CENTER speaker as it is heavier than the front and rear speaker, I can see the center speaker cantilevering. I have to use 2 brackets for the center speaker. Well, Package comes with 5 brackets, I was short 1 bracket since I have to use 2 for the center speaker. So bought another pack of 2. Aesthetically is good, but functionally it is just okay.

    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.

    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.
