So I have a newly constructed home and the surround sound was pre-wired. Each spot right now where the wire comes out there is just a wall plate mounting bracket. I have Sony speakers that are small and lightweight and I believe they use keyhole mounts. All but the center speaker have 1 keyhole. The center has 2 keyholes and there both on opposite ends of the speaker. So my question is how the hell I'm I going to mount these to the wall?

Remove the face plates and what is left should be flat to the wall. See if you can put a screw in the wall such that the speakers cover the holes. If you are really lucky you can just back out the top screw on an electrical box and hang the speaker on that screw.

Otherwise fashion a piece of wood big enough such that you can cutout a hole the size of the plate and mount to the wood.

Or, get out a saw and install inwall speakers where the plates are.

OK coffee is kicking in. The most secure mount will be putting a screw in a stud and then hanging the speaker with the key hole system. Your existing wall plate mounting brackets and wires in all likelihood are immediately adjacent to a stud and if your speakers are big enough they will cover the exposed brackets.
