    Just a quick question about wall mounting these . I'm looking to change my little Yams with 5 CD50s . However , whilst I can't foresee any problems mounting the L&R its the C/RR/LR that concern me .
    What sort of down angle is achievable ? The centre wouldn't be to bad , I don't suppose .But the rears are mounted way up at the back of the room , and I would need to be able to point them down . Mounting them horizontally on the back wall wouldn't be too much of a problem if nessesary :smashin: .
    For an idea of the layout , check my sig

    Any advise gratefully recieved (especially before the prices go up on monday)

    Pic 1 show you the back of the CD50, look at the wall mount on it, this pivots down the centre of the bracket itself and can pivot till it touches the speaker.

    Also, these brackets are square so you can turn it at 90 degrees to give you more mount options. (this is the poistion i changed mine to in order to mount mine in pic 2)

    Hope this helps

    Sorry only looked at your pictures now.

    Your front 3 will be standard stuff to mount.

    For the back i'd probably suggest mounting them horizontial at the coving and point them down at you.

    Your lucky in the way your room is set-up and your seating position, mine was a bit more tricky cause i sit on the diagonal of a square room.

    They should ship viagra with the speakers :D

    I doubt it's stiff enough to hold the speaker at like a 45 degree angle cause they are only plastic and the CD50 are heavy. It might for a while but over time flop down, and the vibrations coming out of the speaker wouldn't help.

    1 solution that springs to mind for your problem, is use a strip of wood long enough to sit between the brackets horizontally, but slightly thiner then the depth of the bracket.

    Once you mount the speaker, it will want to flop down, this strip of wood could then be positioned between brackets and when the speaker flops down it will hit the wood and go now further.

    Obivously the key to this is the thickness of the wood, you want to get it right so the angle of speakers is what you want.

    again hope this helps and you can understand that.
