Yes that is what I was thinking, I went to the Goldenear website, but no good pics there. I downloaded the manual and was looking at those wall mounts. What about a piece of aluminum that runs all the way across the back from wall mount to wall mount. Then in the center a clevis with a locking bolt to set the angle. A nice size maybe obround base with a center post with a few holes to adjust up and down and that would be connected to the clevis. I don't have a 50 so it's hard for me to make without dimensions. Any other ideas??

Everything sounds awesome now in my system.. Resetting the microprocessor on my AV7005 and rerunning Audyssey did the trick. The clarity is amazing now. Everything is in sync. The tweeter is sooo good. Hey Bluvette, its bluman from blu-ray.com.. Good to see you on here too John.

Is it normal for the Tritons and 50C to increase in volume during the break-in period? (at the same volume setting on the receiver)

On the front panel you press the surround, auto, and standby buttons at the same time. Release the buttons after a couple seconds.

I don't own the Goldenears yet but have been reading that they do loosen up and many have had to lower the sub gain.

I haven't been following your discussion closely but I thought this might help.

Yes this may work perfect. Thanks. Take a look Coach.

I am sure you will hear some possible gain as the speakers loosen up. Are you unhappy about that??

Just spoke with Sandy regarding my situation and he suggested I try a few more things to see if they improve the sound overall. Won't be until tonight or tomorrow before I will have time but I was impressed he took the time to call and offer up suggestions.

That is impressive.. Says alot about Sandy and the kind of products he makes. How many Presidents of a company would call a customer.

He reminds me a lot of the President/CEO of my company in the way he interacts with our customers. I have known him to personally call when a problem arises and even makes a visit to the customer if he is in the area...

I understand what you are saying but with the speaker standing taller then approx (5") off the table top it will be top heavy and need to be supported from falling forward. I did a drawing up today and should have a prototype by the end of next week. Will see how it turns out.

I would be very interested in buying a custom stand that fits the dimensions I need, with a little tilt.

After talking to Sandy today, he suggested that I raise the speaker up as far as I can and then tilt it slightly. He also said the closer I can get it to back of the wall, the better..

Looks like I got the speaker to be 5" off the table top. Hopefully I can get the brackets done next week. I'm thinking a nice rubber swivel foot for the front legs and a screwable rear foot that can tilt the speaker up and down (got to find these). Degrees unknown. Might use the feet that cam with the 50's for the rear leg support?

Well, I was thinking that you would need a good size base. Do you have any Waterjets where you work?? I was thinking of Waterjet cutting a obround base maybe 3/8 thick.

No water jet here. I like your drawing. It, will be a little easier then what I have going. I would make your uprights off center to the rear of the plate so the speaker cannot fall forward. More support. I will see what I have at work, in between everything else.

Bluvette, how do you like those Epic subs for music and movie use? Would one fill your room adequately?

Have you listened to the GE yet, if so interested in your opinion.
Thanks!

They are just some basic ones from Best Buy/Dynex. So as to not run afoul of the TOD of this site I won't include a link, but they are easily found by searching for "adjustable wall mount for most speakers". There are lots out there of a similar design (google it). I would have preferred they be made of metal (mine are nylon) but I just wanted it to be done and so I didn't want to wait for mail order. They seem to hold the SS50s securely.

If you pick up the same ones, be aware that they are sold in pairs or in fives. The fives are actually cheaper than two sets of pairs and I ruined one by over torquing a set screw. It was a good thing that I had an extra.

Trust me I'm not a fan of BB but my local audio dealer didn't have any like it.
