2 out of 5 eggsDisappointed in Perormance

Pros: - Hides itself well behind the speaker.
- Easy to mount speaker as it is a simple platform that tightens with a phillips screw.

Cons: - Because it is so close to the wall, right-to-left panning is very limited
- Cannot support speaker with friction pads alone, you need to screw into your speaker.

Other Thoughts: I bought these speaker mounts because I wanted something that would hold my speakers up without having to screw into them. However, when I got them in the mail, the instructions explicitly state that you need to screw the speaker securely to the bracket as they don't guarantee it will hold otherwise. I figured it was a standard warning because it is advertised as a clamping mount and nothing was mentioned about screwing your speaker to it and if you are screwing it to the bracket (something I was specifically looking to avoid), why would the brackets have adhesive friction pads?

Because of how they are made, left-to-right panning is limited because the speaker is too close to the wall. As a consequence, the speakers are not truly angled properly, but it was a minor offense so I just dealt with it. Then after six months, on both brackets the adhesive friction pad slid off the brackets and my speakers fell over 8 ft to the floor. One still works but the housing is cracked. The other the housing is cracked and one of my two mid-speakers no longer works. In the end I had to screw into my now damaged speakers to ensure they do not fall and injure anybody the next time.

While the documentation that comes with it warns to use the screws to secure the speakers, the description (purposefully?) on NewEgg avoids/neglects any mention of this. If you are looking for a bracket that does not require you to drill/screw into your speaker housing, avoid this product. Rating two eggs because the manual warns about this but feel ultimately this product is a bait-and-switch.

4 out of 5 eggsHolding a pair of KRK Rokit5s

Pros: These guys are very sturdy. The KRK Rokit5s that I have on the mounts are only about 15-20 lbs a piece. The mounts are very adjustable =-15% tilt. and 100% rotation. The side clamping arms work well, and supplied screws give you the comfort of them not falling off the wall. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a quick, affordable, and good looking setup.

Cons: internal screws had slight rust on the threads. THis was removed with a quick run out and back in of the clamping screws. Othere than that, the mounts worked flawlessly.

Other Thoughts: Adjustability to adjust the distance in and out fom the wall would be an great benifit.
