5 Factors to Consider when Choosing Speaker Mounts

Posted by Eric on 4/11/2014
Perhaps you think that speaker mounts are generally all the same and it's easy to grab one off the shelves when you need it. But you might be surprised to find out that there are actually different types and it can be quite confusing for an ordinary individual to decide which one suits his or her use. 

Rather than spending a lot of time reading each and every description, why not take a look at these 5 factors below to help you choose the ideal speaker mount for your audio system?

Find out how much each of your speakers weighs before proceeding to mount shopping. This way, you can ensure suitability and will not run the risk of a wall-mounted speaker suddenly crashing to the floor! 

If you're eyeing a clamp-style speaker mount, for instance, it's only sensible to double-check if it is appropriate for the size of your speaker. If you have a huge or tall speaker, you might need to balance it on the wall by using more than just one mount. 

Meanwhile, if your speaker is tiny, you can go for a tiny mount too that will look inconspicuous in any room and will not take up much wall or ceiling space. 

It's essential to consider where you intend to place the speakers. Do you need some on either side of the TV and several hanging from the ceiling? Do you want them to tilt and swivel so as to maximize sound quality? Answering such questions will guide you in browsing through a variety of options. 

If you've got a wide area or plenty of space on your entertainment rack, you might want to go for a mount that lets the speaker just rest on its arms. On the other hand, it's best to make use of ceiling and wall mounts if there's little space available or if you want the speakers to be discreetly positioned.
