I am looking for a wall mount for the VP 150 center channel. Due to my wall unit configuration, I need to mount the speaker above the TV, but under the top of the entertainment center. The wall unit is open in the back, so I can wall mount the 150, but it will need to be about 15-22 inches from the wall so that the speaker will be just about flush with the tv. I will also have to position the speaker so that it tilts downward to match my seating location. Based on the design of the 150, it appears that the top slant of the speaker could be flush with the top of the entertainment unit to provide the required angle.

Does anyone have a wall mount unit in mind? I looked at the omnimount, but it is a SONY 60XBR and I am conerned about placing mounts directly on a RPTV. I am considering a tv mount, can anyone recommend? Thanks.

Would something like this work better than mounting to the wall? In the picture, HAY mounted his VP150 below a horizontal shelf of the entertainment center.

Actually, the picture is not my set up

Apparently it may be a user johninflorida as per the original post where I took the picture for a subsequent post.

Have you checked the Axiom Full Metal Brackets (FMB) they have a new ceiling one. In the picture it would have been done with the standard wall mount FMB.

Do the center channels have threaded inputs to attach to brackets? I don't see any in the pictures.

They do have a "keyhole" threaded insert on the back.

Give this one a look . They have a smaller version of the mount, but I used this one for my center (same as in the pictures) and it works great. The tilt feature is really nice.

My VP150 is hanging off the wall using a Axiom FMB at the moment and it works just wonderfully.

My QS8 surrounsd are hanging off the ceiling using the same brackets

Cheers,

Ray, I think this may be the answer. that bigfoot is slightly larger than the 150, so I should not have a problem.

If you want to look at one, I believe they are available at Best Buy. I ordered mine from Beach Camera at a nice discount.
