Question Monitor audio silver sfx wall mount

Hi all, recently changed my old amp to a denon x2600h, and as a result decided to add some extra rear speakers for 7.1.
I have got some older MA Silver sfx speakers which don't have wall mount brackets on. (not to be confused with fx speakers)
Anyone have any idea how these should be mounted? Or where I can buy the brackets?

Any help appreciated as my Google-fu has completely failed to come up with any answers.

I am in contact with MA, the chap I am dealing with is struggling as the speakers date before his computer system begins 😁 Even the serial numbers don't appear in his system.
I think he is still down in the basement searching through files!

I was thinking of the current bronze fittings, I will ask him when he comes back to me next.

Mite be a case of only using one of the original holes and making another looking at them looks like there pilot holes for screws or are they threaded ones

How about these

Amazon product

The sfx speakers have indents as pilot holes, will measure the gap later as it would be interesting to compare to the gap between bronze fittings holes.

Those fittings look OK, but may be too close to the speaker back. It is not quite flush, the cable poles protrude a little. I would rather have the fitting on the speaker rather than the wall as the weight can be split over 2 screws that way.

You could pop a couple of washers behind them them to lift them away from the speaker a bit and can add or remove as many as you need

Where on the wall are you fitting your SFX

On the back wall

Mine are going to go on the sides but they will only be about foot and 1/2 from back wall and above door frame

I have side speakers at that position, but not so high.

Really pleased with sound since changing amp, great effects coming through. Not sure how much better it will be with 2 extra rear surrounds added, but couldn't resist now the new amp is 7.2 capable.

Did you feel any benefit? I am dubious about Atmos, rather get a better sense of surround laterally. But I haven't tried to be honest, just a gut feeling.
