Hey guys, im moving into a new place where im going to be using my audio equipment along with my roommates newly purchased projector, etc, to create the total experience, the previous owner pre wired speaker terminals to the walls and such and given the size of the screen i was hoping to mount the center channel above the screen rather than below.

I checked the weight and the speaker is 32lbs, so this mount should be fine:

I was curious if you guys had an opinion on it, or if you think i should look at something different.

I want it to tilt down slightly maybe 10-15 degrees at most, so i am slightly concerned about the speaker just simply sliding off this mount.

Here is a pic of the room with the owners original 120", we're going with a 118" screen:

If you don't mind screwing into the back of the speaker just use a couple of safety straps.

Or, you could just use two of these and make sure you either hit studs or pull a piece of Sheetrock and install a cross race between two studs.

Place a wood block on the wall and use one of these cleats: http://www.homedepot.com/webapp/wcs/...5X-_-202341629 You should shim the cleat so that the center is angled down to the listening position.

That would work unless his center is rear ported.

I just found something that would work really well with your original stand.
