I just need some advice here. I'm going to be moving my CSW Newton M50's to rear speakers so I want to get wall mounts for them. I want something that rotatoes and obviously is able to support my speakers. Idealy if they are available in white/cream color that'd be great. Thanks!

i can't remember the brand, but both cc and gg used to sell this ball-swivel mount brand that came in this blister-pak. they came in black and white and seemed pretty solid.

they sort of looked like the bose cube mounts.

i think best buy also has some, but not sure.

sorry couldn't be more useful...

Do a search on this site or google for 'speaker wall mount' and you will find a lot.

Those are the reccomended wall mounts for my speakers. Unless anyone has bad things to say, I think i'll get those. 29.99$ a pair
These mounts will put the speaker very close to the wall, so close in fact that you'll have very limited maneuvering space if you need to tilt/angle the speakers much at all. I tried using some of these on my Axiom M3's, which are a little bit bigger than your Newtons, and it just didn't work. I ended up finding some brackets at Lowe's hardware for $20 that were much sturdier and put the speaker a little farther out from the wall.

Hmm, good point to think on Jeff, thanks. Jason, I appreciate the offer, but currently I don't have any method of online payment so I don't think it's gonna work out. Thanks for the offer though! I'm going to be mounting the speakers in 2 corners on the wall, for positioning I just want them to angle towards the couch. Do you think I will have a problem angling them with the Vogel brackets? or should I just be safe and go with a differnt brand then?

That's how I mounted mine also. The problem I had was that I couldn't angle the speaker down because the speaker was too tall and it hit the wall before I could angle it down enough. You also might want to check PartsExpress.com I believe they have quite a few brackets in different sizes.

ok, I'm not sure if I'll have that problem because my speaker is a bit smalller in height, but still it's a good thing to think about. I appreciate the help Jeff and I'll take a look at Parts Express :)
