Recommended Tilt/Swivel Ceiling Mounts For Atmos Height (bookshelf) Speakers?

I'm finally moving to Atmos, and need to add four height speakers for the 7.1.4 system I have planned. After talking to a few experts, and getting other input from various sources, I've decided that my best results will come from using four Revel C2 Concerta S16 book shelf speakers's, that match the side and rear surrounds I am currently using. These are exceptional speakers in their price range and perform beautifully in my existing system. The issue is that I need a solid, affordable ceiling mount for these speakers capable of tilting/swiveling in order to get them properly aimed at the seating position. Any recommendations for mounts you have used, or successfully seen used would be appreciated.

The speakers dimensions and weight are as follows:

13-1/4"W x 14-3/4"H x 5-5/8"D
weight: 14 lbs.

Thanks for any assistance with this.

Do they have keyhole mounting options? Or pilot holes?

I used the Paradigm wall mounts and they were rock solid. Amazon has some wall mounts that claim to be good up to 22lbs, which should easily take care of you.

Video: Epson 5050 / nVidia Shield / OPPO-103
Audio: Marantz 7010 / MartinLogan Motion 40 (LR), 50XT (center), M2 (surrounds)
Streaming: nVidia Shield / Roku Ultra / Chromecast Ultra
NAS: Synology 1515+ Server: Ubuntu 18.04, i7-8700 CPU
HTPC: Win10 Pro 64-bit, i5 750 Radeon HD 5850

They do have a very specific mounting option, but I'm not sure I could find anything, in terms of a speaker mount that would interface with it.
