Does anyone own Martin Logan MLT-1 or MLT-2 speakers?

If you do, what did you use to mount them (using speaker mounts)? Are there any speaker mounts that can work with them?

Ask in the paradigm thread(sorry I don't know the answer). The mlt 2s are basically paradigm cinema 90s

No subwoofer I've heard has been able to produce the bass I've experienced in the Corps!

Must..stop...buying...every bluray release...

Thanks.

I have tried Atlantic 77335068 Satellite 5 Speaker Mounting Brackets but the bolt and thread on shaft seems too big.

I created an account solely to answer this question. I had my MLT-1's installed over the weekend and I used the following mount from the local Home Depot:

w.w.w [DOT] homedepot.com/Electrical-Audio-Video-Accessories-Mounts-Stands-Speaker-Mounts-Secures/h_d1/N-bm2hZ5yc1v/R-202699283/h_d2/ProductDisplay?langId=-1&storeId=10051&catalogId=10053


Comes 2 in a pack for roughly $18 pre-tax. Works for all 4 bookshelf speakers except the center speaker (it's a bit heavy and I could not get the mount to hold up). However, for the center speaker you can simply drill two screws (preferably in a stud) spaced appropriately apart and hook on.

I just purchased the MLT-2. Price point was good, very happy with results. Not an audiophile, but much better than 11 year old Sony cubes.

I had same issues with the mounting, trying to figure out what the hell those two holes were for. Terrible directions in the users manual. In the end, the universal speaker mounting kits (I dug out my extras from 10 years ago--"Sound Gear Satellite series"--still available online!) worked. The two holes have no threads, but the kit comes with a variety of screws. I used 2 of the short thick screws slightly larger than the holes which can be GENTLY screwed through the base plate, attaching it to the speaker. I strongly suggest you use a screw driver, avoiding an electric drill. MUCH better than simply hanging it by the one keyhole off a screw drilled into the wall.

Saw a ton of posts for this without any answers. It took a couple of gulps for me to start screwing into the new speakers, Happy I did. Hope it helps. John

I used a #12 machine screw in the top hole on the back of the MLT-2 to mount to a universal bracket. Holds nice and tight, no issues whatsoever.
