The 62s are a bit big to mount on my wall so I would have them on stands.
I can't comment on the Adattos as I've never heard them, but I can comment on wall mounting the 62s. Mine (front L/R) are wall mounted, anchored only in the drywall and not in any studs. The studs were not within the range of where I wanted them located, so I found these items and they worked well for me.
I used Aeon brand mounts (link
) that are more than capable of supporting this speaker. I was quite impressed with these things, especially given the price. They are heavy duty. To anchor them in the drywall, I used Toggler SnapSkru anchors (link
). They are rated to hold 65 pounds each (which might be a bit of an exaggeration) and I used four on each mount with an over sized screw.
I had to pre-drill four holes in the back of each speaker (above the crossover/connection posts) to attach the mounting plate. If you go this route, I would use the biggest screws you can fit through the holes in the plate in order to get the most "bite" on the speaker's cabinet.
Short of someone hanging from them or falling onto them, they are solid as a rock. I like that the mounts can easily be tilted up/down as well as right/left. The 62s will protrude from the wall as the mounts are roughly 6" deep, plus the depth of the speaker.
