Yes, that's the nice part, no messy sticky tape to hold the speaker in place on a plate. The speaker also has a hole in the back, by the binding posts so you could use an L-shaped mounting bracket too.
Make sure you screw in the bolt all the way in the speaker first (it will stop) and then put a rubber/plastic washer so you don't scratch the speaker and screw in the stand rod into the speaker next.
Also, if you are handy drilling holes into the mounting metal plate, I'm sure you can drill a hole in a better position so that the mounting plate doesn't show. I was about to do just that when I realized I could do away without the mounting plate and in the end it looks much better not seeing any plate at all.
I'm sure the original Def Tech stands will mount much better, but they did not seem tall enough to me.
In the end I'm happy with the stands, they are very stable and the silver rod gives a nice contrast and emphasizes the speakers. The rest of my equipment/stands is all black with slight silver/chrome touches, so I used the same theme for the speaker stands rather than going with all-black stands - it takes away from the overall darkness.
