Okay, I wanted to come back and post my final solution.
I got 4 of the Klipsch RP-140SA speakers and I did in fact go for the brackets. But instead of screwing into my speakers, I decided to try a glue approach first. So I got some Loctite PL Premium Polyurethane Adhesive and glued the brackets to the speakers.
Then I mounted them to the ceiling using either sheetrock anchors or going into the studs if I got lucky.
They feel very solid, but I guess time will tell. I did use 12 awg speaker wire, so if one were to fall, I think the speaker wire would keep it from hitting the floor (or a person). HAHA
The Loctite dries tan, and I used a healthy amount so it came out REALLY ugly. I covered the ugliness with some black tape, but that looks a little bad too. My brackets came with black screws, but I used sturdier screws so they'd be long enough to go into the studs. I can paint those black at some point but right now the light really catches the silver screws on my otherwise all-black speakers and ceiling.
Function over form right? They sound great. All I've had time for is playing with the Dolby Atmos demo disc, but it's quite amazing. Worth all the blood, sweat, and money.
Sorry for the low picture quality, it's hard to get decent pics in a darkened room. LOL
Next on the agenda... Projector!

Reason: Not sure why the side thumbnail is sideways but if you load the full rez, it will orient correctly.
