I just made an upgrade to tower speakers, so my current bookshelves are being demoted to surround speakers. The speakers are PSB Image B5's, which weigh 11.3lbs. I'm currently using these mounts with my smaller speakers: http://www.amazon.com/OmniMount-10-...qid=1427589853&sr=8-1&keywords=omnimount+10.0, but their weight limit of 10lbs is a little small for the B5's.

These mounts here would handle the size and weight: http://www.amazon.com/VideoSecu-Cla...qid=1427589500&sr=8-1&keywords=speaker+mounts, but it doesn't look like they'll let me hang them down from the ceiling the way I want to.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

EDIT: Originally put the wrong link. Whoops.

I personally plan on trying this out with the extension they sell. I have not bought them yet.

While my speakers are within the 12lb weight rating of those mounts, some of the Amazon reviews say they're having trouble holding speakers that weigh less than mine. If I can't find anything else I still might try these, though. How long is the extension? I can't find it anywhere on the site.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

The extensions (ACC-02) come with two rods, one is 2.25" and the other is 1". So you can get a total of 3.25" of additional drop from on one mount with one kit

http://www.pinpointmounts.com/ACC-02ThreadAdapter.html#.VRiify53Fdx

The mounts them selves are 3.66" from the mount point to the join.

I am not thrilled with any of the pinpoint options, most don't seem to be long enough to accommodate my PSB Alpha B1 speakers without extensions. The one that does (the side clamp) is ugly as heck. I am very interested to see if anyone else has a better alternative.


Edit
Looks like Omnimount has a 20# ceiling mount coming out but no date listed

After inspecting my PSB B5's a little more closely, it turns out that they have no built-in mounting holes anyways. So if I wanted to mount these at all I'd have to use a side-clamping method. So far the Pinpoint one linked here: http://www.pinpointmounts.com/AM41C...peakerCeilingMountwithTiltSwivel#.VRim-2Ztjbh is the only one I can find that does side-clamping in a ceiling mount, but as you said it's incredibly ugly.

If I don't find a better alternative I may just stick with my current surround speakers, which are Image B4's. Smaller, but they seem to be getting the job done well enough.
