First off, please don't think I didn't try the search function first. I tried variations on "book shelf mounts" and I have not come up with what I'm looking for yet.
I'm finally getting around to mounting my PSB Alphas (9.5 pounds each) on the wall in my living room. My house is very small so the Alphas will have to do as my main speakers. I've already resolved to deal with the fact that I can't have ideal speaker placement. The next best thing is wall mounting the Alphas about 6ft up on the living room wall. I need to be able to point them at the common seating position. I'd like to get a pair of mounts that are reliable, sturdy, and discrete/nice-looking. A low price would be nice too. Good value is more important than cheap to me. I don't mind paying for quality, but I don't live a price-is-no-object lifestyle.http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
I considered this inexpensive speaker mount from Monoprice, but it has bad reviews.http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2
I considered this small tv mount from Monoprice that is also inexpensive, but I think the wall plate is a little too big relative to the size of the speakers. This would violate the "nice-looking" parameter that my wife has insisted on.
I'm considering the Omnimount 20.0. But I've read mixed reviews. Some say that the ball-and-socket clamp doesn't hold securely once it's set. And they seem kind of expensive. But they do look discrete/nice. I would image that there are some folks here that have used these who can endorse them or recommend something better.
I figured this would be the place to ask to get the best value and most reliable set of speaker mounts with the pool of experience available here at AVS.
If I'm going to drill holes into my speakers' back panels for mounting, I want to make sure that it's the last set of holes I ever have to put in them.
Or if there's a thread that covers this subject already, I'd appreciate a point in the right direction.
