Many thanks--I missed out on the Athena Point 5s and the Advent Heritage sets, but these look just as good if not better.
The center has no mounts. It just has the binding posts. All others have mounting slots.
I built a sweet shelf above my TV for the center channel and it works great. I only had dry wall to work with, (no studs in that area) and I used these plastic wall mounts that supposedly hold 50 pounds each. I used 4 of them just to be safe.
The center weighs 14 pounds and my shelf is so sturdy that I could probably sit on it.
This is how I did it.
I took my 4 pieces of mounting hardware from Home Depot and secured those to the wall. They are basically big plastic screws that drive themselves into the sheetrock until they are flush against the wall. Then you drive a screw into the plastic mounts when you are ready to hang the supports. I took those shelf supports that have 2 mounting holes in each of them and secured them by driving 4 screws into the mounting holes on each support. Then, I put a black piece of wood over the 2 shelf supports and, voila--a new sturdy shelf using no studs.
