Need help ceiling mounting Klipsch rp-500sa speakers

Recommended Posts


I have 4 Klipsch RP-500SA speakers coming to do a 5.2.4 setup with my RF7 Reference ii system. They have one keyhole on the back, I believe. They weigh 8 pounds.

This is for Dolby Atmos. I can install them as front and back height speakers, or fire the rear ones upward to bounce sound off the ceiling, but I know that is least ideal. I would love to grab control of the buggers with ceiling mounts. But I am pulling my teeth out trying to find ceiling mounts for speakers that have only keyholes (no threaded holes).

Can anyone throw me a bone?

Thanks!

Hi Udson

 

Not quite sure if this is what you're looking for, but have a look at Omnimount 15.0C ceiling mounts.

Hi Henrik, My user name used to be ][udson on here. Not sure when they axed showing special characters. I joined over a decade ago. It's Hudson. 😃

 

Thanks a lot. That's the product I came to through all of my reading. It looks like it will support the ten pounds. But will I be able to get firm control over speaker position? It feels like they would just dangle loosely.

 

I was wondering if I couldn't get a tight flush mount with the double headed Bear Claw screws I ordered. But I'd worry about them falling after time through vibration...

According to Dolby speaker placement guide (https://www.dolby.com/us/en/technologies/dolby-atmos/dolby-atmos-home-theater-installation-guidelines.pdf), you can use front and rear heights. (vs. overhead).  They have a drawing for the 7.1.6 (with front and rear height in addition to top middle overhead) you can use for guideline of placement.

 

I think using RP-500SA mounted in front and rear walls is better than mounting them on the ceiling as that's what they're designed for.  May not have as much dispersion as a ceiling mounted speaker have.
