Speaker mount using keyhole

I have a pair of Polk M10 bookshelf and I'm using them for surround in my HT. They've been sitting on a chair and I cannot really hear them from my couch. So now it's time to buy speaker mount.

The problem is that M10 mount system consist only of one keyhole.
I was looking for those solid mount : http://www.monoprice.com/Product?c_i...seq=1&format=2

Two questions.
1- Do you think it is possible to mount the M10 on this?
2- Would it be possible to mount the speaker on an horizontal position?

I have never mounted any speaker on a wall...

Thx

i used some wall anchors from my local hardware store to mount my polk monitor 30's to the wall. turned out just fine. i dont see the need to get expensive mounts for surrounds such as these.

I don't need snobs to tell me how to think, thank you!

Ok. Thx for answer.
10$/pair is not really expensive...even to fit my cheap HT setup.

Wall anchor with a screw? Then you put the keyhole in that screw?
But what about mounting the speaker horizontally?
I don't think keyhole system can be mount horizontally....do they?

If Polk M10 are not compatible with threaded mount, I could buy those Athena AS-B2 on kijiji for 100$. But again...I don't see any hole on those speaker ether. Does that mean I cannot use speaker mount?

My bad I posted without looking at your link. Those MonoPrice mounts might just work out for you.

Ya the wall anchors won't allow you to mount horizontally.... Unless there are space issues why would you want to?
