Speaker Wall Mounting Bracket - White (Max 10LBS) - Set of 2
Easily mount your satellite speakers on your wall with this Speaker Wall Mounting Bracket kit from Monoprice!
These brackets are designed to mount small satellite speakers with a single-bolt, two-hole (2" - 2.75" spacing), or keyhole mounting systems. Each bracket can support a speaker weighing up to about 10 lbs. Each bracket can be tilted and swiveled, so you can point each speaker to the proper angle for the optimum audio experience.
The brackets can be mounted to wooden stud or brick/concrete/hollow-block walls and includes the hardware necessary for either type of mounting option.
Note: The included extension is intended for ceiling mounting solutions only. When used in a wall mounting situation the extension increases the leverage of the weight of the speakers on the mount, thereby decreasing the load capacity.

Only one "fly in the ointment" - as I mentioned I have keyhole mount speakers. The bolt with a plastic spacer was great. The issue is with the keyhole nut. The instructions say to install it with the knurled (rough) edge toward the post. However the back of the nut was "stepped" but not knurled (rough) - as a result, the nut slipped on the smooth plastic on the back of the speaker keyhole, I tried pulling on the post to help tighten but it still slipped and then popped out. Very frustrating and added about 1.5 hours to the installation of four speakers. I finally got some lock washers and with alot of pulling got the somewhat tight. This could easily be addressed with a nut that truly was "knurled (rough)".
I noticed in reading your reviews that product issues are often forwarded to your design team to address. If you should decide to correct this I sure would like a set (6) of the proper keyhole nuts to provide me with a perfect installation.
PROS: - Well made
- Excellent pricing
- Flexible mounting options
- Attractive product
- Quick delivery
CONS: - only one small one - but significant for me - with keyhole mount (see review for details)
PROS: works good! holds up my 8 lbs perfectly.
CONS: wish it came with more extensions or sold separately. need 4 extensions and that means i got to buy 2 sets to get extensions.
The mounts come apart, so there is an elbow piece, an extension piece, two 2-screw "flange" pieces, and two single screw mount pieces for certain types of speakers. The combinations are endless since everything is totally modular. You can put them together without the extension, or with, and the result is perfectly positioned speakers.
How does Monoprice stay in business practically giving these away for free?
They are fantastic. You wont be disappointed.
PROS: Four dollars!
Many angles and combinations possible.
PROS: great price! forget the bose brackets @ $20 or $30 per pair
CONS: works fine with the double cube speakers. Had a little trouble with the "small" single cube speakers- alittle modification on the bracket was necessary.
PROS: - Inexpensive
- Easy to install
CONS: - Bends a lot with speakers close to 10lbs
- Made of plastic versus sturdy metal
PROS: Cheap, universal with some modding.
CONS: Modding required.
PROS: Multiple methods for attaching speakers, easy mounting.
CONS: Attaching keyhole mount can be tricky and frustrating.
PROS: Adjustability and installation option
CONS: The 10lb rating is overly exaggerated.
In order to solve this issue at a place I was replacing speaker cable in-wall I simply drilled a hole half way through the side of the nubs in order for the set screw you actually go into something and bite a bit. I do not think this is a proper solution or expectation that most people would have when buying these though. Also the set "screw" isn't really long enough for this use so you have to be careful not to drill too deep of a hole, but deep enough for it to hold.
The hinge piece strips out incredibly easily.
Overall, this is very much a danger as the speakers can fall off at any moment especially in areas of humidity or where vibration may be an issue... don't forget they are speakers so vibration is actually inherent!
Upgrade to the metal brackets and trust that you have a secure mount.
PROS: Relatively low profile
Easy to install though can be tedious without proper tools (bit extensions, torx heads)
CONS: Dangerous hazard of falling apart
Screws strip threads too easily
Slightly cheap feeling
Hinge does not hold even after tightening it
