For anyone that is curious on mounting their ARX A1 to the wall may I suggest getting these...

Here are some photos of my A1s mounted as surround with these.

Looks real nice, glad to see some more Arx fans. I will have to pick up a pair of those mounts, looks like they were made for the Arx.

I wonder how well they will accomodate the slightly larger A1b? Also very clean set-up Smoken, why not post a pic of the entire set-up as well?

Nice find, SmokenAshes. Can you apply quite a bit of clamping force with this design? It's certainly a clean look.

Both models are 180mm wide, so my guess is they'll fit virtually the same.

Oh yes! You don't need to use the screws that come with it that screw into the speakers for added support. This thing can clamp pretty good, I had them tilted even more and they were going nowhere. I highly suggest these for any large bookshelf speakers. They are very solid mounts!

Yes you can. I've been using these for quite a few years now (2 sets) and they are very heavily built. As I do not prefer to screw screws into my speakers, I just use the side clamps with some of the supplied "grippy" foam and they hold quite well.

Currently holds a pair of my own 5" two ways that are about 25lb ea.

Thank you, Smoken Ashes. Sorry to reply to this old thread but will the mount hold the new Arx A2-c? I'm thinking of getting the A2-cs for rears.
