Hi,
I want to wall mount my M22s as rear surround speakers. I do not have a rear wall in my setup, because my living room opens up to the kitchen. Therefore, I need to use a side wall to mount the rear speakers.

I am thinking of having the mounting arm of the bracket come out perpendicular from the wall. Then I would rotate the arm 90 degrees so that speaker faces forward to the TV screen. I hope this makes sense. From the Full Metal Bracket manual it looks like I could achieve this mount. Without the exact measurements of the parts of the bracket I am guessing.

Could anybody confirm that I would be able to mount the M22s using the Full Metal Bracket on a side wall (as a rear speaker) and be able to point them straight forward to the TV screen.

Thanks in advance!

Hi,

To me I don't see that they would stick away from the wall far enough to allow pivoting them towards the front of the room. I looked at axioms brackets from many angles when I was going to mount my rear surrounds to the ceiling. The M22 is a pretty big speaker to try and mount in that position. I had M2's that I hung from the ceiling which worked very well. Maybe consider ceiling mounting the speakers with them positioned horizontally.


Speaker bracket places speaker 2 and 3/8" from the wall and measures 5 and 1/8" from top to bottom.

Thanks for your response. When Axiom states the dimensions as 5 and 1/8" from top to bottom then I am confused where the top and bottom is. See attached picture is it 5 and 1/8" for A or B?

Loc: It's all about the location.
I'd call Axiom. It looks to me that it might work if you turn the one "knuckle" (the one nearest the wall) to a straight out position, then rotate the speaker mounting part it could work, but there would be somewhat leveraged weight on the knuckle being straight out like that.

Thanks! I exchanged emails with Axiom. The FMB is 5 1/8" for B, the full height, in the illustration. In addition I got the following comment: "The speaker will have limitations on how far it will turn as it will hit the wall at some point but it should get very close to what you looking to do. You won’t be able to get to 90 degrees."
