I really don't want to change them out. Might be back to the drawing board.
Yes part of it was the weight and part design of mount. I needed to add the extension on the mount and it used a set screw into the plastic to hold it. After spending my hard earned cash for these speakers I did not like the idea of them falling or sagging. I wanted to make sure all the speakers were aimed at the MLP and the Omni mounts gave me better options. You may be able to use your mounts though as mentioned above check the weight.

I think my JBL's are around 4.5 lbs. I am trying to think back when I got the mounts (11 yrs ago) and I believe they were rated close to 10 lbs but I can't believe it would be less than 8 lbs. I'll get up on a ladder and see if I can see any identifying marks/model number but I kinda doubt it.

BTW if it matters, I used these type of bolts to install them.

Yes those toggle bolts are good! Where I could not screw the mount into a stud I used those and so far are holding well.

Nice setup!

SO, you're using front surrounds instead or you also have the side and back surrounds?

FYI,
Definitive Technology StudioMonitor 350 (Pair) for only $160 shipped. Cheaper than ONE PM1000's retail price :-)
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16882325059

Makes me want to return the 450's I got a few days ago and buy the 350's. That's almost $100 in saving for other toys :-)

I saw them in my Newegg Email. I wish they weren't so big, I would replace all of my SR8080s and hang 4 off the ceiling for Atmos. They are great speakers, I owned them when they first came out.

Thank you.

I am going to try the same setup this weekend. My room only have 3 walls and doesn't have the option for L/R surround speakers placement and I don't want to hang one speaker in the ceiling 😏



Side note for 450's owners: You might want to try move your speakers around and try them at multiple locations. I just tried moving mine around and finally found the hotspot for them. I swear I could hear the details that I never heard when I had my Klipsch RF-82 II's. Maybe my ears are liking Def Tech better. After all, my $250 were well spent on these pair of 450's.

You're getting some 1st reflections off those side tables for the front left and right speakers sitting on the hard surface. Might want to consider 'lifting' the SM450 off these tables with a short stand or insulation mounts/pads. The following seem to work well for the pros: http://www.amazon.com/IsoAcoustics-I...s=isoacoustics

An alternative is the monopads from Auralex: http://www.amazon.com/Auralex-Monito...=auralex+mopad

Maranatz SR-7009(on order), Oppo BPD-93, MTV 7000D, LG LW6500, aTV, WDTV Live, Harmony 650 remote, KEF E301, MiniDSP(2x4), Rythmik F12G

I am acquiring a pair of BP1.2x to use on my rear wall where my ProCinema 60 surround rears (7.1) are positioned. The PC 60's are mounted with ProMount 90's. What can I do to use these mounts for my BP1.2x? Which have a simple key hole.

My SM450 mains have been replaced with a set of BP2006 with new subs . The SM450 are now on the side surround. I also have a CLR2300 center.

You can try these:
I think their 1/4-20, with an appropriate sized bolt/machine screw for the end that will fit the keyhole.

*Warning* None of my suggestions, ideas or even thoughts have any WAF, in any way!
