I use the 10's to wall mount my PC1000 surrounds. They work fine. I'd guess that the problem you are experiencing is with how you are attaching the 10's to the wall - rather than with their ability to support the speakers.
Drywall anchors and/or "molly bolts" won't work. Ideally, attaching to a location that has a wall stud behind the dry wall would be best, however, there was no stud where I needed to attach mine.
I use "wing bolts" to hold the 10's to the wall. Get a large size (with a lot of span to the wings) and you should be fine. I have 2 of these holding each 10 to the wall, and they are ROCK SOLID.
The attachment of the 10 to the PM1000 is just as solid, although you do have to crank down hard on the allen screw, so that it grabs the ball tightly. Definitely (no pun) a 2-person operation, since someone will need to hold the speaker in place while you tighten the set screw.
I've had mine up for months with no problems.
