Would buy again

Used for ceiling mount for Dolby Atmos .…

Nice lightweight and easy to use mount. Great price too!

I used them to mount to the ceiling.…

Can these be mounted on the ceiling?

Yes, they will work great for ceilings. Just be mindful of speaker weight and use proper anchors.

Will these fit on standard in ceiling speaker wall plates?

Thanks for your question. The speaker wall mount should be mounted on the wall, maybe can't be mounted in ceiling. Please feel free to let us know if you have any questions: supportus@perlesmith.com

My ceilings are prewired does this bracket work?

As long as you have ceiling joists to screw directly into, or if you have solid dry wall to install with butterfly anchors you should be fine. The mounts themselves are very light weight. The speaker weight is what will determine the mounting method. Once installed, the mounts will almost dissappear from view.

But that was easy. They look very nice hanging from my ceiling

…They look very nice hanging from my ceiling!!!

Great product

I was able to hang my svs pime elevation from the ceiling with no problem.

Great quality

…Good quality, I was able to hang pretty heavy speakers 15-20 lbs speakers from the wall and the ceiling. The cable ties included were very annoying when installing the wall mounts so I removed them then found a very good use for them on the ceiling speakers.

Will these hold a 45 degree angle when mounted from the ceiling? I have 2 11 1/2 lb speakers using the key hole mount

i have mine wall mounted at a 45 and it hasn't budged. I have the klipsch reference which is a pretty heavy speaker.

Can you aim these in any direction? Tilt down AND rotate right/left AND keep speaker vertical (not "crooked") simultaneously?

Yes! these are the strongest I found at a reasonable price. Mine are mounting old M&K K7 and K5 speakers on the ceiling.

Strong brackets and capable of holding some weight!

Installed from the ceiling and they are holding Klipsch speakers that weight 16lbs each from them and they haven't dropped at all!

Good Price but description is incorrect

I would recommend this to anyone want to hang speakers from the wall or ceiling but not for keyhole system.…

Not so heavy duty

…We just finished our basement and I wanted to hang my 30lb speakers from the ceiling.…

What are a good set of speakers to install on these brackets?

These mounting brackets are heavy duty and I mounted my Onkyo speakers to them and they have been holding strong for over 2 years with NP. I have kids that run around the theater room and they have not fallen down from the ceiling. I have a Onkyo 7.1 Channel THX speaker system.

Will these extend straight out on a 90°, photo shows a 45° but looks like it would do the 90°? I've one speaker that needs to be straight out.

yes any angle, they are holding both my Klipsch RP250 at 90 degree angle on the walls and 2 RP250 from the ceiling at 45ish degree angle. I did made sure to use the included metal cord for safety purposes. Have had them up there for about a year, never had to re-adjust them, so they hold good.

nice secure mounting for speakers that need ceiling mount.…

Heavy duty, all metal design!!

These are well built, I bought some threaded rod so that I could extend them farther from the ceiling.…

Adjustable Speaker Mounts.

…I used these for surround sound speakers hung from the ceiling.

Would these be suitable for holding a heavy speaker (jbl l820, approximately 20 pounds) aimed straight down from the ceiling for dolby atmos use?

I mounted surround sound speakers from the ceiling, but I don't think they weighed 20 lbs though. The brackets are pretty strong.

What is the weight capacity of these? i see one customer said it held his 33lb speaker. i am looking to mount a yamaha msr 100 from a 20ft ceiling.

If they are mounted to the ceiling joist, they could easily support 35-50 lbs depending on if you try and angle them.

Sure the instructions are not all that great, but it has a few pictures so you ...

I ceiling mounted my older Bose 201's.…

cant go wrong

very good sounding speaker I would buy again in a instant my setup is a Marantz 6012 in a 5.1.4 setup I run the 265 rt speakers on all 4 corners then I use the 80 r/x rt for my atmos in ceiling and a svs pb 2000 sub and the 255c rt and it the best sounding setup I could have ever hoped for it is truly I life like sound full all around high quality sound and they just look amazing I have yet to put the covers on cause they have such a great look and build quality

Fantastic

The greatest speakers with great sound, bass is there, couple with Polks surround ceiling speakers and you have a full blown theater system.…

These sound AWESOME! I paired them with the center and rears ...

…I paired them with the [[ASIN:B004L9DGCK Polk Audio 255C-RT In-wall / In-ceiling center channel speaker]] center and [[ASIN:B0057XVZ72 Polk Audio 70RT (Ea) 3-way In-ceiling Speaker]] rears powered by my - great setup.

Can I place them in my ceiling or only in the wall?

you can mount them in a ceiling too.

Do they work well as frontal left and right speakers in ceiling for my home theater? How can I direct then to my couch?

There isn't a way to aim them at that much of an angle. They're meant to be on the same wall as your screen and/or surround walls. Also, they're on the heavy end for mounting in the ceiling. Look at the polk 70-RT ceiling speakers if you MUST only have ceiling speakers. If you can do in-wall, these are fantastic.

Polk Audio 265RT (Ea) 3-way In-wall Speaker

…I installed them as RL in my 12' ceiling family room and I was surprise with the results.…

These babies sound awesome in my new basement

…They are paired with the 255C-RT for a center channel, the PSW505 12 inch sub and 90 RT in ceiling as rears.…

Every bit of it is good

…I used these for my fronts in a 5.1.2 system, matched with the Polk 255crt (center), 65rt (rears), 70rt (ceiling presence) for an ATMOS system.…

Are they piantable

I looked up whether or not they were paintable when i bouth them. I found that they are, but that you will want to use a spray paint so as not to clog the holes in the speaker cover mesh. However, I have mine installed and decided not to paint them as they look just fine without it. The ceiling I definitely didn't need to do.

Great sound

…The speaker is setup in a large room with tall ceilings.…

Easy installation, sounds great, look great, blend in well with the ceiling!

Perfect surround sound speakers

…Oh yea, they look absolutely great and blend into the ceiling nicely.

Are the grills paintable? Mine look purple on the white ceiling.

Hi, yes, you can paint it using the color that you want. Thank you.

I need oh so I Power cable are only a cable to connect to music

Hi, our sincere apologies but the question is not clear. If you are asking if the power cable is all you need for it to work the answer is no. This speaker must be connected to an amplifier or receiver. However, we have an upgraded version with a bluetooth feature for our 6.5" ceiling speaker. Please check our PDICBT652RD model. Thank you.

Nice set of Wall Mount brackets

…The versatility of the brackets made it easy to mount to the speakers and position them perfectly on the ceiling.…

Good speaker mounts for a small speaker.

…The negative part is I had to reverse the bolt and nut holding the 2 halves together in order to tighten after the speaker was on since I was mounting close to the ceiling.

Can these be used with the Pyle PDIC61RDBK In-Wall / In-Ceiling Dual 6.5-Inch Speaker System, 2-Way, Flush Mount, Black

Yes, you can as we did too!

A discreet way to fill the house with premium audio without cluttering up a clean design aesthetic
To help you find the best in-ceiling speakers for your home theater setup, we tried out dozens of top models, testing for sound quality, preferring products with high quality woofers and tweeters, installation simplicity, with designs intended to fit drywall or other ceiling surfaces, and aesthetics that can match nearly any ceiling, often featuring paintable grilles. We also liked products with additional features, such as paintable grilles, and lengthy warranties. The best product we tried was easily the Micca 2-Way in-Ceiling in-Wall Speaker, which comes in at a nice price point and a wide variety of size options (6.5”, 8” and MTM.) These speakers are easy to install, with paintable grilles, and come with a pivoting silk dome tweeter. The 6dB crossover network helps achieve perfect integration between the tweeter and the woofer, combining to create a robust bass response and natural and performative mids and highs. Keep reading to learn more about the Micca 2-Way in-Ceiling in-Wall Speaker and the other products on this list.
A good speaker is essential to any quality home theater. After all, it's tough to enjoy something if you cannot hear it the way it was designed. There are a number of speaker options out there, but for those looking for an elegant set-up, in-wall speakers are definitely the way to go. Besides looking sleek, you don't have to waste precious floor or shelf space, and can achieve incredible sound quality due to flexible placement. Here at CinemaBlend we take our home theater set-up seriously, which is why we found the best in-wall speakers to satisfy any and all audio needs.
Home theaters often involve complex audio setups composed of soundbars, subwoofers, and speakers that work together to offer the most immersive sound possible. In-wall speakers can help make sure these setups provide clear audio without also taking up half of the living room’s floor space with sound equipment. These are some of the best in-wall speakers we’ve found.
