When it comes to wall mounts the best brand in the market comes up with name MOUNT-IT! .Mount it made all kinds of wall mounts from speakers mounts to LCD or monitor mounts they do it all.
As is the above image the product looks great and it is also very simple design but with this it is also very durable so that you don;t need to worry about the mounts falling or the speakers mounted on it.
This mount is specially for the book shelf speaker because it has two jaws and it will take the speaker in its two jaws and it will hold the speaker tightly.
Mount it speaker wall mount is also suitable for satellite speakers,studio monitors , amplified speakers. As all are from the same category but size and the sound is different. It will hold all of them but it should be kept in mid that the speaker must not weight more than 25 Kg (55 lbs).In my point of view it is OK (all correct) because most of the speakers we use are small and loud and nobody wants to hang 25 Kg speakers on the wall.Most of the On wall speakers weight between 3-7 Kg.That's it and yours will also be in this range.
The speakers you will be placing in the mount should be between 5.4 to 11 inches .OK again because almost all of the book shelf speakers have width between 6 - 8 inches maximum.If you don't know the width of your speakers just take a scale and measure it .It will definitely be in this range.
Mount it wall mount is made of solid steel and is decorated with ABS cover .This means that it will provide you the durability and the black matte color to give you a stylish look.The best part is that you can rotate the speaker 360 degrees and also move the speaker 7.5 degree vertically .
That feature is great if you to make the sound stereo and if you want to move the sound in the room this is great .This rotation will also help you when you want sound directly come to you.You can move the speaker facing you and you are done to enjoy best sound from the speaker.
The wall mount is easy to install.Just make some screw holes in the wall with given template and place the speaker mentioned in the manual .And the last step put the speaker in the speaker wall mount ,tight the screws and you are finished.
There is only one downside of the product is that the screws with shipped item are not great .The will make you uncomfortable because they are so tight and you will damage the mount .Buy 5 lab bolts of size 5/16 x 2 inches. They will make your life easier .That's it.
So over all after much research and checking out tens of different wall mount i cam across this .This is the best speaker mount out in the market and believe me you will not get this kind kind of mount with this price anywhere else.If i wanted to buy a speaker mount then i would definitely bought this mount.It is budget friendly,strong,stylish look,wide suitable for any kind of speaker and can handle heavy load easily.
- Budget friendly.
- Wide clamp opening size.
- Suitable for large and mid size speakers.
- High loading capacity.
- Screws are hard to tight.
WALI is another manufacturer of wall mount devices.As the name of the brand suggest they will make wall mounts. Wali make different kinds of wall mounts like DVD players wall mount,LCD monitor mount,dual LCD mount desk,sound bar bracket etc .They make them all.
This wali item and the Mount it wall mount are almost same.The design is the same .This is because most of the bookshelf speakers can easily be fit in the jaws of this wall mount.This is the design the most of wall mount for the bookshelf speaker will use.
This wall mount is 90 degree swivels so that you can rotate it easily in the direction you are sitting or where you want sound to go.
This wall bracket is easy to install just put the mounting plate on the wall ,tight the screws and place the speaker and again tight the screws of the jaws and you are done .Just plug the speaker and enjoy the music.That is all you are done.
It also has a feature that it will move 7.5 degree vertically.Again this will provide you stereo sound.With this feature you can move the speaker up and down with your bare hand.If you want sound to focus on you as you are sitting down and want sound directly to you.You just move the speaker down or if you want sound to echo in the room you can move the speaker upward.
This speaker wall mount can easily handle the weight of 25 Kg(55 lbs).This is awesome because 95 % of the book shelf speaker do not weight that much and this wall mount can handle and speaker and it will never let you down.Believe me.
The mount clamp can easily be opened up to 11 inches and the minimum length that clamp can be closed is 5.3 inches.So for this you need a speaker of a width between 5.3 to 11 inches or less so that it can close the speaker easily.
So you guys will be thinking man No.1 and the No.2 wall mount you choose are clearly identical except for the manufacturer. Yes they are identical .The first is of Mount it which is a bigger brand than Wali,After a lot of research i came to know that mount it is relatively new as it was in the market in 26 January 2017 while Wali mount is relatively old and it was in the market in 9 June 2016.Mount it new and it is already in the best sellers with positive customer reviews.So that is the reason i choose Mount it in the first place .If you remove the brand than you can pick any of them they are identical.

This video is in Spanish. You have to change the captions to auto generated English. Read the subtitles and follow along. This guy explains all the features and how to mount the speaker in depth.
The only reason i put it on the 5 place not on 4 because it can rotate at 2 points while and mount it wall mount speaker can rotate 360 degree at 3 points.But the price of these 6 mounts is less than mount it wall mounts.
After all this wall mount is also one of the best wall mounts for small speakers in the market.Mount it and Videosecu both are the best but mount it costs a little more than Videosecu. But they provide you 3 rotating positions with 180 swivel.

The mounting bracket can rotate 360 degree and it can swivel 180 degrees left and right so that you move any side you want but you have to be careful before mounting the mount .Because if you place it wrong then the swivel will not much of use.
You can also increase or decrease the size of the wall mount foe ceiling it is long and for wall it is short one.The ball in this is also a great feature you can rotate it anywhere you want and just tight the screws when you are done.The ball will remain in the position.
The downside of this mounting bracket is that the ball is made up of plastic and if you tight the metal teeth to much then there is a chance that you will break the ball and the mount will of no use.So be careful.

Mount it and VideoSecu are dominating the list this is not my fault the quality and the budget they are offering i can't resist and i was forced to include them in this list of best speaker mount for 2018.
This design is clear ,simple and tough. It is simple but yet very durable as it is made up of heavy duty steel aluminium alloy to provide you the strong support for your speaker.
This wall mount for speakers is suitable for any kind of small speaker.2.1,3.1 or 5.1 it would not take much of your effort to install them in the mount.

The only drawback of this mount is that it is little bit expensive than the mount mentioned above. Although the quality is yet brilliant.
This speaker mount is great for the quality and the durability. It has a security cable which is the addition feature in this product that you don't among other speakers.It also has more weight holding capacity than mount it or VideoSecu mount for satellite speakers can offer.
Overall this product is great. If you have a larger satellite speaker and you are worried that mount it and Videosecu mount can't handle them then you should try this mount. It will not break and provide you the best sound experience from your speakers.

VonHaus is one of the best manufacturer in home and outdoor niche.Their slogan is Engineering for your home .They make all the different kind of products for home like vacuum cleaners,heating ,clearance equipment,luggage and travel ,video and visual accessories, DIY (Do It Yourself) power ,hand tools,bathrooms use,garden garage storage ,security and home furnishing and its accessories .They make them all .
If you want to buy something for your home then this brand is worth trying. You can check all of VonHaus products here .
This VonHaus product is sold in 2 pair so you will get 4 mounting brackets in the item when shipped.They are suitable for cinema ,satellite or any kind of small to mid range speakers.They can hold them with ease.This product has the maximum loading capacity of 3.17 Kg( 7 lbs ).
The loading capacity is low in my opinion because VideoSecu and mount it mounts are offering greater loading capacity than VonHaus is offering. It is suitable for small speakers and if you have small speakers then it is perfect for the price.They are small in size and when you will mount the speaker on the wall them will not show up the wall only your speaker will show.
The small size has also a disadvantage as it is small then it will not allow you to rotate or swivel the speaker much.You can swivel the speaker up to 140 degrees and tilt the speaker at 40 degrees .This is again lower than mount it and veideosecu mount tilts and swivel.
Due to its small size this product can't swivel and rotate much as compared to mount it and videosecu but when speaker is mounted it will completely vanish.Also it has not high loading capacity so if you have small speakers and you are tight on budget then you can get 4 of them very cheap .They are way more cheaper than mount it and videosecu mounting brackets.
If i give you my personal opinion on this product i would say that this product is suitable for small size speakers and also it fits everyone budget.If i was on tight budget and i wanted speaker mounting brackets then i would definitely buy these because for very low price they are offering a great product.
Watch this video if you don't know how to mount the speakers with VonHaus mounts
This animated video explains how you should mount the Vonhaus mounts and the speakers on them .It is really helpful. Watch this video first before drilling a hole in your wall !!!!
- Small and durable.

Pinpoint mounts also make it to the list of best speaker wall mounts of 2018.There is no doubt that pinpoint products are great for the price and quality.Pinpoint make speaker wall mount and ceiling speaker mounts. They are known for this.
This pin point product is alike the mount it and wali mounts mentioned above in the list.As i mentioned earlier this design is best match for the speaker with large size and mass.
This product is a side clamping design this means that you can move the speaker on its easily and also you can move it horizontally but it offers more rotation on its sides than on y axis.You can tilt the speaker 7 degree down and 90 degree swivel left and right according to your room adjustment.
This speaker has the maximum loading capacity of 22.67 Kg (50 lbs) .If you put the heavy speaker than 50 lbs than the mount will not hold and break and unfortunately the speaker will fall.But don't worry most of the bookshelf speakers are way lower sizes than this mount can hold.
The clamp of pinpoint mount can open from 5.50 to 11.5 inches.The speaker you want to mount must be in this range then it will mount easily.This product weights 6.5 lbs.
The reason i placed Pinpoint mounts on the 9 Th place is because the design,clamp opening and the loading capacity is almost the same as Mount it and Wali mounting brackets have but they are selling the mounts in pair with really low price.But pinpoint is selling one wall mount for very high price. For the price that pinpoint is offering you can get 4 pieces of wall mounts form Wali or Mount it .Except for the price all three or the products are identical.
If i give you a brief overview of this product then i would say it is great buy its expensive. Pinpoint is not a huge brand than wali and mount it nut yet they are selling a single mount at high price than mount it and wali. This is insane. All three products from three vendors are the same the little bit change in design and loading capacity is little bit up and down but overall all are the same.
- Suitable for large to mid sized speakers.
- 7 degree down tilt and 90 Degree left/right swivel.
- Wide clamp opening.
- Can support weight up to 50 lbs.
- Require drilling for better screws adjustment.
- The adhesive pads are not well placed.
- Expensive as compared to mount it and wali side clamping speaker mounts.
So here come the big one and the last one the Griffin premium speakers wall mount brackets.I mentioned a lot of speaker mount for small and mid range bookshelf or any kind of speaker but didn't mention what kind of mount should be suitable for the large size and heavy speakers.

This speaker mount can help produce superb sound quality for home theaters, music bands, recording studios, DJs, stage performers, churches, schools, theatrical teams and many more!
The only thing that i don't like about these wall brackets is that they are huge in size.They will not look great on your wall but the problem is how are you gonna mount a large speaker without a large and durable mount.
