Mounting options

Well, last night I ordered 4 Klipsch rb-51 II's for my Atmos height channels. I'm thinking I'd like to mount them high on the side walls near the ceiling. Does anyone have recommendations? I'd prefer something that swivels so I can aim them.

Re: Mounting options

I used cleats for mine sides and surrounds, but you can't aim them. I had some custom brackets made for the Atmos channels which you can adjust the angles, but no aiming either.

Re: Mounting options

Are you doing 7.2.4?
I'm not 100%, but I don't think wall mounting will provide the right experience. Todd, or Peter would have a better idea, but if you're going through the trouble, I think you'll want to make sure it's as good as you can get. Klipsch's page says 20.9lbs per pair, which seems unlikely but...
I've always liked omnimount. Try these.

I'm going to see how 5.2.4 sounds and might just stick with that. So you think mounting up high next to the ceiling would not be as good as directly overhead? I'm not sure she's going to sign off on black boxes hanging from the ceiling? Thanks for the link I'll take a look here in a bit.

Re: Mounting options

Lol. I kinda thought you'd say that. That's why for me, in ceiling with aimable tweeters would be the only way. I know they say placement can be flexible, but I think it refers to the front/back relationship along the ceiling plane. I hope @Peter Loeser or @Todd Anderson can chime in.
What is your ceiling height?

The ceilings are 8 feet. I haven't come this far to start cutting corners now. If they have to be mounted on the ceiling I'll figure out a way to make it happen.

Re: Mounting options

Good luck. I secretly hope I'm off base a little, but we'll see what the big brains can add.
