I'm moving into a new place and I'm going to mount my speakers on the wall since I'm doing my TV too. However, right now I have a cheapo samsung ht-x70 ( http://reviews.cnet.com/home-theater...-32472461.html ).


I was hoping I could mount these speakers, and then when I figure out a better system, could use the same brackets and put up my new speakers?


This only works, of course, if the brackets are the same. Are speaker brackets usually the same? or do they vary by manufacturer? how can I find out what kind of brackets my samsung uses?


if they're all different, should I just wait until i have something better? it could be a while until i get around to get a new setup.


thanks.

brackets are unique to the shape and size of the speakers. With the exception of the simple screw-in threaded stud mount (but even the thread sizes vary), you can expect each manufacturer who actually provides a mount to use a different style/type.


The closest thing to a universal mount are the shelf type brackets that adjust to the size of the enclosure box, but those are purchased by the user, rarely supplied with the speakers.

yep, the problem with smaller speakers than use "key hole" type back of enclosure mounts is the speaker mounts flat on the wall....they cannot be aimed at the listening area. At least most offset speaker mounts allow some positioning of the speaker to allow some aiming adjustment.
