Anyone have experience wall mounting a VP150 with the FMB? I'm just wondering if the speaker works well mounted like this, or if its weight causes any problems.

It works fine.

I used to have my VP150 mounted above my screen in v2.0 of my theater as seen in this picture using a single FMB:


The tricky part for me was that I was putting the speaker as high up as possible (under some ductwork) so my big monkey hands had a tricky time getting everything mounted, but it was doable and surprisingly solid.

Of course, mount it to a stud. There are a lot of shear forces pulling on the bolts you use.

For v3.0, I ended up putting the VP150 on a shelf below the screen since there was room, and in v4.0, I am using a VP180 on a shelf behind the (new) screen.
