Hello,
My name is Bryant, im looking to get mounts prefered the ceiling mounts for my Martin Logan Motion 15 speakers. They are book shelf speakers however here are the specs, the single thread on the back is 3/18-16 it's pretty big and uncommon. Also, the weight is 12 pounds and meassures wide 6.8" and Height 11.4"



Does Anyone know where i can get mounts for these speakers?

Please! Thank you!

Hey thank you!

I did go to amazon spent about 3 hours looking. I ended up getting the omnimount 20.0c ceiling. It said that it fit that bolt. Martin logan speakers really are picky!

Thanks again!

OK!

The Omnimount's no longer make the once required! ! !




So here is the better choice actually!

These worked well i have the Motion 15 mounted!

Looks great!


The speaker brackets can be found on Amazon -

http://www.amazon.com/Vantage-Point-BSM-B-Bookshelf-Speaker/dp/B0000DIX1Y/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1363911821&sr=8-12&keywords=vantage+point+speaker+mount


The brand is Vantage Point (www.thinkvp.com) and the model is BSM-B, they are discounted on Amazon of course.

Can you post a picture of what this looks like?

also, how much can you angle the speakers horizontally?

​As you can see the mounts are readily moveable and easy to adjust. I've had these mounts for a bit of 10 months and have not moved a centimeter off from where it was left. I love them, the metal posts and the threading to use the screws is amazingly strong. Keep in mind the mounts are METAL and they do have their own weight. So you have to add the weight of the mount plus the Speakers you choose to use and make sure you ceiling can handle it! 

 

Overall no issues at all, i have 4 of these mounts holding 4 Motion 15's. The threading is so big it requires these mounts specifically!

 

​Hope this helps! 

 

I fell that the angle Horizontally is about 180 degrees and vertically about 180 degrees. They are very customizable.

Still liking these Vantage mounts? I'm thinking of using them for Motion 15's and Atmos overhead speakers. They will be about 3 to 4 feet from Main Listening Position, they should be able to point/angle towards the MLP, right?

I'm loving these mounts, they are great have had them for a bit of a year and some change and they havent moved from the angle i've set them in.

Yes moving them and repositoining them is easy howevver i uge to have someone adjsut them for you as you it in the listening area. What i did was i had a guy come to install them we played music on just that speaker and meassured whether it was a good listening position and what may have you.

Great though! They are great!

Let me know if there is anyting else i can help with you.

No other parts are needed for installation, correct? Just the speaker and the amazon mount?

Oh, maybe I need to buy 3/18-16 threaded bolts? How long did you use? From Home Depot or something?

Oh Sorry for the Late reply, I've been super busy!



Honestly i don't remember, however I'm sure the mounts bring the bolts. you might want to read on that or perhaps go to Vantage Point
website. Here is the link from amazon that has the mounts (They are cheaper now! lol)

HTML Code:
http://www.amazon.com/Vantage-Point-BSM-B-Bookshelf-Speaker/dp/B0000DIX1Y/ref=sr_1_12?ie=UTF8&qid=1363911821&sr=8-12&keywords=vantage+point+speaker+mount
HTML Code:
https://www.thinkvp.com/products16-43/BookshelfSpeakerMountsPair
That one is for the original site.

I've attached the images from the site, According to what i found what the bolts do COME in the box, reminder ONE order is 2 Mounts. I did the mistake of ordering more than needed but I'm sure they can be handy in the future for a 9.1 lol

Again please let me know if there is anything else i can do to help!
