    I need a pair of speaker mounts. These have caught my interest...
    http://www.partsexpress.com/pe/showd...ID=15077&DID=7
    I plan to use them for a pair of JBL S38s. Do these look sturdy to you? My fear is they won't support the speaker or the clamp design may losen and the speker will fall.
    Can someone suggest a speaker mount if this doesn't look good.
    The JBLs weigh 28lbs. So a mount/bracket that can support at least 35 lbs would be desired. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Dave, those look good. The only problem is the s38 should be placed in a horizontal configuration. Horizontal width of the jbl is 17 1/2 " [​IMG] I may make them vertical, but would rather go the horizontal way.
    Any other options out there?

    At some point, you may be forced to resort to screw plates, altho 28# is pretty hefty. Look at www.omnimount.com
    Here's some pix of other DIY custom installs.

    Bill, thanks for that DIY link. It had a link to this website: http://www.pivotelli.com/index.htm
    They have some nice looking mounts that may work. No prices tho [​IMG] I've shot off a email to them.
