I have to hang my center speaker from the ceiling.

I am unable to find a wall mount that would support the 30 lb weight of the speaker

Would appreciate if any of you have a recommendation

 

Thanks in advance

How much weight can your wall mount hold? I found a mount that attaches to the TV wall mount and it can go above or below the TV. The mount can hold up to 50lbs if your wall mount can handle the extra weight.

I have not got one yet. I am going to buy the speakers next week

I would appreciate if you can share the details of the mount you purchased

If you have access to the joists in the ceiling, the easiest thing to do is nail a 2 x 6 brace between the joists and use that to secure your speaker mount.

I bought my speaker mounts from FourPair, but I was specifically looking for mounts that were articulating and would take DefTech SM55 bookshelf speakers. They have what looks like a ceiling mount for an LCD TV, but it looks like it could be used for speakers too. The ones I bought aren't the most attractive mounts you'll ever see but they do the job.

HD-DVD = 94
Blu-Ray = 120 ( 24 Warner red2blu )

Did you have to screw the speaker to the lcd mount?

I would prefer not to put a screw into the speaker 

But all the audio shelves that I see in the websites seem to be on the flimsier side and supported at the center

I have to tilt my center speaker downward so I am afraid that these av shelves with glass bottom might not hold the speaker.

and yes I have access to the ceiling joists.
