I'm looking to move my RB41IIs to rears for 7.1 but I am super new to mounting options. I need something that can be angled down from above a bay window, but above all is secure. Does anyone have a recommendation, preferably to something I can pick up from Amazon as all the local brick & mortar options stink? The only mounts I've seen at local places are for smaller satellite speakers.

What king of angle does it need to be? I used a set of these for my Front Heights when I had them (extra sturdy but no more than a 10 degree angle)

Where as these are probably way more flexible:

Not at all ridiculous! I think there's plenty of space between all the speakers and I like the way you've got your height speakers mounted (and I really didn't think I would). IIRC you followed the Dolby white paper guidelines as closely as you could...I bet it sounds great. Congrats -- it's got me itching to get my ceiling speakers and Atmos AVR up and running!

They'll need to be near the ceiling due to the bay window, on a wall that's less than 6 feet from the LP. I think they may need to be angled down 30 degrees or more.

I'm a little leery of those ball-and-socket type mounts; we have a conference room at work with some little Klipsch satellites on that type of mount and two of them have failed into pointing the speakers straight down.

I can dig it....That said, who turned me in to PLIIx was "Film Mixer" who posts on here and is a Dolby engineer who mixes movies for Theatrical presentation in theaters.

It does sound great! I know I am making certain concessions in that In-ceiling compressions are likely a better choice but as you said, I followed the white paper as closely as possible.

I love it! I still need to get back up there and straighten a few things and then paint the wire covers to match the ceiling (I used I small piece of dry wall from under the mount to get paint matched) but I am really pleased.

If you hang the from the ceiling and use the L Bolt, sagging won't be an issue. I use four of these with the ceiling mounts I rigged. They have a ball and socket but they are much sturdier and built for heavier speakers:

Quick shipping, great prices, and easy to deal with. Highly recommended. I'll be ordering my CDT-5800-CII's from them as well.

Thanks. What do you mean by ceiling mounted? Do you mean in-ceilings? Or rb-51?

Probably whatever suits your room best. Me personally in ceiling was impossible, but ceiling mounting was easy. RB51ii's can technically do both.

In fact, including the bracket it's only 11 inches deep so it won't hang down very far from your ceiling at all.
I know I'm the biggest proponent there is of making sure that all of your speakers are from the same line whenever possible but I'd make an exception in this case. To me, there's something inelegant about hanging bookshelves from the ceiling. I'm sure they'll work great, but I'd rather go with something that's specifically designed for such an application.
that is actually not a bad idea in-wall or in-ceiling is not gonna work for me as i have a thick concrete ceiling, but this is a very appropriate option.

what krozman said this ceiling u have can probably hold in-ceiling as well as the rb-xx or in-walls if the ceiling was made according to standard rulez about lowered ceilings.

I thought about those exact speakers but decided to take on the project of getting the larger RS-52IIs mounted since my ceiling is so high and I wanted the speakers to match.
